The Pearson eText for Schools app allows K-12 teachers and students who view their Pearson eText titles on a computer to also access their programs in a bookshelf on iPad.
Pearson eText for Schools is also the eText app of choice for users of the Pearson Custom Library when using the iPad.
With the Pearson eText for Schools app, book content is displayed with the highest quality fidelity to the print and online versions of the textbook. Students and teachers will experience many of the same features available from the web-based eText, including full-text search capabilities, a notes manager, support for multimedia content, glossaries, note sharing and many other exciting features.

Ratings and Reviews
Slow, laggy and horrible
This app is extremely slow, it takes like 5 minutes to load 1 book and takes like 1 minute to load ONE PAGE. Also, its very laggy, and crashes a lot. Lost all my Spanish notes and I got a F on my Spanish homework. Also, cannot copy and paste, and the notes feature is useless, as it basically deletes after exiting the page. Highlight feature is also hard to use, and very hard to delete. One time I accidentally made a highlight too big, and I can't delate it. Now 1 and a half page is covered with purple. Bad company, bad app. First app to delete after school is over, even worse than other textbook apps. I have tried many different textbook apps, but this one is by far the worst. If you are a teacher reading this, please DO NOT use this app. It is horrible and no one will get their work done, and it is torture for students. Please choose and alternative.
First off, why does it need to be confirmed by the teacher in class? That in and of itself just makes problems and complicates an otherwise simple thing. Secondly, it glitches sometimes and doesn't let you use the book. Lastly, if you are scrolling down it will randomly zoom all the way into the text for no reason.
I just don't understand why Pearson can't make their books available on iBooks or kindle where it is so much easier to read and do work off of, instead of this poorly designed garbage.
I have only one major problem
So I am in High School, and we use iPads instead of regular textbook. I honestly don’t have a problem with this app on then the fact that when I search something, it will show up on the search bar thing, but when I click the link to that page, the word or phrase that I searched for is not highlighted. I don’t want to have to spend 5 minutes looking for something. It’s precious time wasted, especially if I have an assignment due at midnight and I’m pushing the limit. Please fix this!!
