i want to copy and paste the text 5/5
By Molly Soda Blue
sometimes when i am reading my textbook, i like to copy and paste into an app that reads it aloud for me. if you won’t let me have this, at least add a feature to your app that will do this for me. i still miss the only person i have ever loved and a love lost is about as great a torment as grief.
Fix it please 1/5
You know what’s really fun? When you are reading a case for your business law class and the app keeps crashes when you change the page
Crap navigation 2/5
2 stars because of navigation problems.
Started out as 3 stars but I kept running into more issues. For as much money as students are forced to throw at Pearson, you might think the app would at least have the basics figured out.
I can’t specify what part of a chapter I want to jump to from the table of contents. For example, I want chapter 1 > section 1.2 > practice problems. Instead my only option is chapter 1 > chapter 1. Pointless. It’s annoying to have to keep swiping and swiping and waiting for the pages to load, especially if I need to keep referring to the text during my homework.
Can’t enter the page number I want to jump to.
Search feature doesn’t tell you what page or section the results are from.
Tried using bookmarks to make up for poor nav. Bookmarked each section of chapter 1. In “my bookmarks” they’re all titled the same thing “Chapter 1: Graphs and Functions” then the page number. Not helpful. At least let me name the bookmark whatever I want if you aren’t going to put the effort in to tell us what it is.
Zooming in sometimes crops the bottom of the page off and won’t let me bring it into view.
I don’t like precalculus. I like it even less when I have to use this app.
There is no text 1/5
The app was working fine but now as I study for my exam the text will not show up. Pearson needs to get it together.
Add copy and paste 4/5
We do work on our iPad and in stead of copying and pasting important parts of the text we have to type it out. It is a great app other than that
Keeps Freezing 2/5
This app keeps freezing when you open it. You have to reset the app a couple times before it actually works. Bookmarks and highlights does not sync when accessing in other device or from Pearson Lab. It’s fine when it’s working apart from the not syncing part of bookmarks & highlights and incessant freezing.
Play the book 5/5
By Momma jobs
The only thing that would make this better is if they had the option to read it to you.
Good product 5/5
Great to read on the go, however, I think developers should also create an app to allow homework to be done. Sometimes I'm on the go the whole day and I find myself read the chapter, but I also have homework to do. The thing is i can’t do any homework because this app doesn’t have the option to do homework, it would be really useful to have the homework option.
Navigation and UI is horrendous 1/5
Everything looks the same, sections aren’t separated by pages, page numbers are hard to find. These issues would extremely mitigated if you actually let me go to a specific page. It’s such a simple feature, yet it’s absent. Teachers assign readings by page numbers, how am I supposed to efficiently do them if I can’t get to the pages?
This is gr8 I use this all the time but it won’t rotate to whole screen on my phone. can someone help?
The pearson etext for nursing randomly freezes. Also, the “continue reading” option doesn’t work, it takes you to a random page.
And now bookmarks don’t work. Great. Lower your prices for garbage products, please.
Needed features and improvement 2/5
Please allow us one hand users to double tap to zoom in and out please.
Remove the borders from the top and bottom when a user taps the screen as I cannot see some content when I am zoomed in.
The whole page 3/5
The convenience of having the textbook within reach and easy to carry can not be ignored. Though I wish there were different colors which use to highlight and ways to easily access notes from the textbook page rather than flipping between two different areas. There is also the issue of the textbook never saving my page, so I have to either bookmark it or search for each time. The greatest annoyance however is that the very edge of the page is eaten by the page turning interface. With my inability to adjust the page size so I can the last few words on the page, I’m forced to pull the page up and hold it, making note taking and highlighting hard.
I suspect there is little that can be done, as there is little incentive for them to actual change the situation or issues. Yet I felt it important to share these glaring flaws in a rather convenient application.
First review ever 1/5
By apple requires a nickname here
Because this is horrendous enough of a product to make me do it. Pain to navigate (both in the app and the web version, so beware all around) and the pages won’t scroll up entirely. There have been folks complaining about that for awhile and apparently Pearson doesn’t care. I really really regret buying the etext on the assumption this would be user friendly.
Eh... Need better content organization AND AUDIO 3/5
It’s an OK app and does what it says, but IT NEEDS AUDIO!!!!! Really do not want to go to the myBradey website every time I want a text book read to me. Please add!!!!
By Verte artístico
I enjoy the app would love it if there was an audible option
Great study tool 5/5
By Boo yea!
Able to use the app to read my school material but also quiz myself with the self help study sessions they have. Great for on the go
Great app 5/5
It’s very convenient for me to be able to read my textbooks on my phone. I love it!
Nursing Student 5/5
I love this app! It makes reading our required textbook so much easier and highly accessible. I can read anywhere I want and the start up is really easy. Any future students that like a 3 vol. textbook in your pocket would love this app
Fetching my bookshelf for 3 days 1/5
Since I downloaded the app it started fetching my bookshelf and still I don’t see my book for my school. This is one useless book reading app I have ever seen. Do not recommend. I am stuck with it because of my college.
Pretty expensive to not work 1/5
First off I should let it be known that I hate Pearson and think they exploit college students with overpriced books and required codes. But you’d think that some of that money would go towards a decent app; nope. The app is horrible, buggy, and one of my books apparently decided to be filled with mostly blank pages. It works fine on their slightly less terrible website but I would like to read it from what I want to read it from, not whatever my last option is.
Too make issues for the price of the book 1/5
So I have an online class that requires us to have the online book. I was excited that I could read the book on the go and high light stuff. So when I get home I can write all my notes.. well I just got on the app to do some more reading and ALL MY NOTES ARE GONE! I was getting ahead in class so I don’t fall behind with my busy schedule.. and now all my hard work is gone. And I’m starting over again. You should really get this fixed since every other review I have read says the same thing. Oh and it keeps telling me my subscription has expired.. I just bought my book.
doesn’t show formulas??? 3/5
downloaded for engineering mechanics (physics basically) and it doesn’t show any formulas...
experiencing lag while highlighting
Overall a fairly terrible e-reader 1/5
-Doesn’t have the chapters subdivided like on desktop so that they can be quick navigated to
-Can’t view in landscape mode
-Zoom function doesn’t allow the bottom fifth or so of the page to be viewed
-Manual bookmarks must be made in order to save your spot in the book (the “pickup where you left off feature has been available on just about every e-reading app for awhile now); unable to navigate to a specific page number
But why make the app more than barely functional when you have a monopoly on the textbook and e-educational market.
Notes are gone 2/5
I’m normally a person who prefers a hard copy; at first I was excited, highlighting in different colors for different categories and adding my notes, the study tool feature is amazing but what is NOT amazing is the fact that my notes from last night are completely gone this morning. I planned to review my notes from last night and move on but now I have to backtrack. This needs to be fixed!!
Difficult to read ebooks on a phone 2/5
I can zoom in to read, but if I do that, I have to hold the text the whole time to read what’s on the bottom paragraphs. If I let it go, the page bounces back up. I can read the rest of it fine, but this needs to be adjusted so I don’t have to read the book in tiny writing. You also can’t rotate the screen either, it can only be read in portrait mode. What’s even the point of having the ebook?
Update failure 1/5
Your last update made the app getting stuck even more than usual and none of its functions work. I can’t even log in or out of the app any more it just stuck on a random page
Old version was better 1/5
I had the old version and updated it to this. The old version allowed you to scroll through pages easily and preview them, as well as jump to a certain page number. The new version makes it very difficult and comes up with every time the number 50 shows up in the book should you search for page 50.
I can’t see the crazy small text 3/5
By Gretta McCrane
I give myself a headache trying to read the size of this text. Please add a zoom feature!!!
Needs improvement 2/5
Whenever I highlight, its all gone by the next day when i want to review the key points, or gone within the hour. It’s frustrating, if i had the choice, I’d buy the hard copy textbook but my school doesn’t offer that. Aside from fixing the highlighting issue, i wish they’d add underlining or a way that i can write notes on the sides of the paragraphs with my Apple Pencil.
I was always on the go so this help me so much we being able to read.I could pull it up anywhere without needing the internet and using data.As a college student I need pretty inexpensive books so the digital book is the best on my wallet.
Works fine so far 4/5
Haven't experienced any issues. However, it would be better the bars at the top and bottom to disappear when reading. It slightly covers text and I have to scroll up every page. It would be best if that could disappear and reappear with a tap. A page finding function would be useful as well.
Introductory Chemistry by Russo 4/5
The text is very interesting and engaging.
In the app, one problem: I can bookmark it but I cannot get to my bookmark page when I reopen the book later.
I can’t highlight and have my iPhone speak the words on the screen
No landscape mode
I love Pearson eText 5/5
By Math is a lot of work
Thank you, thank you, thank you
Just read the physical book 1/5
1, the App regularly locks up mid chapter then resets all of the work I've done since opening it
2, at least one section per chapter either doesn't show up or it just loses the highlights as I move to the next chapter
3, when the app recovers from a crash it will sometimes lose days worth of work and highlights. The amount it loses really is random
4, today, I had to re-download the book which reset all work done over the past 6 weeks. Every single highlight was lost, every single note gone.
To sum it up, if you want to do things repeatedly, this is the app for you. If you want to actually save your notes, use a physical book.
I love this app but I think it would be better if there was audio that went along with it. I would love to be able to just plug in some headphones and be able to listen to it as well as read it
Great program so far, when you bookmark exit or it won’t keep your place
Empty bookshelf. 1/5
Using iPhone and tried two different apps and it won’t sync my account and get my books uploaded on bookshelf of the apps. Need to hire better IT or need to do better at upgrading/programming their apps.
Page numbers 5/5
Would like page numbers on eText to easily find assigned “pages.”
App isn’t opening textbook 1/5
My app is not opening the textbook that is listed in the bookshelf and the support page won’t authenticate. I cannot use the mobile app at all.
Awful App 1/5
The bookshelf shows a bunch of other things listed that I never purchased or are irrelevant to me. I’m constantly having to redownload my textbook, and it never saves the location of the book I was at. Would much rather be reading this on a kindle app.
It’s ok but needs some real work 2/5
By RG Gamer1028
I downloaded the app to use for my anatomy class. Overall the app is bland, not really the most user friendly and is basically the bare minimum that could be done. Right of the back there are few things at the time I wrote this that Need fixing.
One of these is I’d like to see a page marker where we could also go and type a number to jump to a page like on the desktop version.
The second is the that when using the search tool when we get a list of results it would be nice if we were shown which of page they were on.
Third I was trying to zoom onto a certain part of a page but when I do so I am unable to shift to the bottom of the page. And the bottom banner for previous and next is also in the way. If the movement boundaries were expanded and we were able to cause the banners to fade by taping on the screen it would be much nicer to be able to work when we try to zoom in.
Make it more reliable 2/5
Constantly freezes and charts rarely ever fit the screen for nursing concepts volume 1 and 2.
The biggest issue I’ve been having with this is that it keeps freezing up and closing and restarting it multiple times until it works is annoying.
With that said this is the only way I take notes from my textbooks. I prop the tablet in my tablet holder set the screen to not shut off and don’t even need an internet connection. Easy to add highlights or mark a page! The online website is unbearable because it boots you out after so long and takes forever to load and navigate to the textbook through the many different links.
If they could fix the performance of this it would be a 5 star app!
This app is garbage 1/5
By Imma bunny
Good thing I have the textbook and a MacBook because this app is garbage.I downloaded the book and there is no content, I even tried to open it from my classes e text, which would then direct me to Pearson eText. It still showed no results of working on my iPad. I was hoping to not have to carry my MacBook and text book around anymore because it makes my bag significantly heavier, but nope.
