Doesn’t stay logged in 1/5
Logs me out after every quiz and I have to log back in constantly. For what we pay for these stupid textbooks you think they could make a functional app.
Love The App, Needs Offline Narration and Zoom 4/5
I actually love this app a lot, but I was really disappointed when I downloaded a textbook for listening while I was out and found out that you need internet to hear the audio. Don’t advertise it as learning everywhere, on or offline, if I need internet to learn the way that’s best for me. In general, this is an amazing app that offers a really great way to use textbooks, and I love the ability to take notes, make journal entries, watch videos, etc. I highly recommend it. But please fix the narration, and add a zoom option for reading!
Works great 5/5
By Olga Arrambide
I love revel. Especially that is works offline. I do wish it had a few more study features but other than that is amazing.
Having trouble with closer look features 2/5
I’m using this on one of the latest models of iPads and I can’t seem to be able to maneuver the closer look tools to get access to that info. It’s ridiculous since it always goes to the first page of it and never allows me to move onto the next one. I already hate history but making it impossible to really get certain key points of the chapter content really makes me hate history more. Please fix it
Not good 1/5
This app is really hard to navigate and it’s so hard to figure out how to do simple things. Reading books is really annoying and complicated as well. And it may sound like I’m an old person that can’t figure out technology but I’m 19 and have been using computers all throughout high school and college so navigating technology is really easy for me. This app is just not good. And some things I’m not able to do on my phone and some I have to do on my laptop which is really annoying.
Doesn’t support split view 1/5
Very disappointing. The app doesn’t support iPad split view. What’s the point of reading books without taking notes?
Make this change PLEASE 3/5
My only complaint is that it does not support the side-by-side windows with ipad. This drives me INSANE. I can’t productively take notes like this. It’s torture.
By RRT GUCCI
I love this app. I truly enjoyed how it reads to you❤️❤️❤️
I feel it needs tweaking 1/5
It was prematurely released
CanI highlight and copy to work on The journal in word and then pasting it when I am done?
Update Rendered App Useless 1/5
This app was working great until the latest update. The app will now crash trying to access my textbook every time. This app is literally unusable
Courses Don’t Update 1/5
The latest time that I’ve downloaded this app has been on a 7th generation iPad. I previously tried to download this app on my Samsung phone, and Lenovo yogabook and yet it only has one of my courses from two semesters ago. I am currently taking three courses this semester and I don’t know how to get the app to recognize this.
Orientation lock means nothing? 2/5
I used my iPad Pro mostly in landscape mode, allowing excellent readability. However, whenever there is a quiz, the screen auto-rotates to portrait mode (even with orientation lock enabled!). How is rotating for quizzes necessary? This needs to be fixed!
Learning on the go 5/5
I love this app! It’s so convenient, and easy to learn and stay ahead while on the go. I truly appreciate having it. Perfect layout, and super easy to navigate. Nothing but positive feedback from me!
Multitasking on iPad doesn’t work 5/5
This app is great, but I dislike that the multitasking for the iPad is not compatible with this app. I like to take notes on my iPad while reading the material on the app, but I am unable to do so because I can’t use both apps at once.
Needs to be updated 3/5
When reading a textbook and going to the next page there is a glitch and it is just a white screen. Needs to be fixed because it interferes with my coursework.
Won’t let me read past the first page, all the other pages load blank please fix
Literally doesn’t work 1/5
every single time i open the app and attempt to start my reading for my psych class the module goes blank and the text won’t show after i try to switch the page, tried deleting the app and reinstalling still doesn’t work this app is trash
Chapters go blank 3/5
I really hope Pearson can reply because I paid over 80 dollars and I should not be experiencing so many issues. More often than not, I will try to go through chapters and it will go blank. I try closing and reopening the app but it continues to do so. I have now deleted the app and reinstalling it. This happens with the WiFi on and off ! I do not understand why it is doing this. Please fix!
Next Section Doesn’t Load 1/5
After swiping to the next page/section, it doesn’t load. The app has to be closed and then reopened to load the page.
Saves plenty of time. 5/5
Ease of access and audio learning(not automated) on the go saves time.
I've been trying to log into the app for a month. It's connected to my online education course so the user name doesn't work. The app is a total waste of space on my phone.
Good concept, needs bug fixes 4/5
By Jeanie :)
I like the way the app is set up and everything, but sometimes the audio function does not want to play and you have to press the play button like ten times to get it to work — not the best for commuters. Another inconvenience is that sometimes it will read through the whole chapter, whereas other times the audio will stop after every page — again, very annoying when you’re driving or multitasking. Finally, I would like to see an assignments tab that clearly lists the writing assignments still left to do. Right now they are located sporadically at the bottom of the pages which makes it difficult to see what you need to get done, especially when listening to the audio. Please address these problems and this will be an excellent app!
By far the worst product or app I’ve ever owned. 1/5
This app has not worked for me. Continually lets me log in but says my subscription has expired less than a week of ownership (less than their textbook free trials) I’ve called their support multiple times sometimes waiting more than a week to hear from them on progress while checking multiple times daily. I’ve wasted HOURS holding and waiting for a resolution. I’m not exaggerating I have time stamps, screenshots, and emails to prove it. Still waiting on a resolution and they’ve closed my file twice saying they can see a problem on their end. It’s impacting participation in my course and therefore my grade. Professors please choose a different company if possible, students please opt out of the online or app component of you can. This is literally the most unprofessional and worst company I’ve ever encountered.
It’s really nice, but needs a little work 4/5
It’s super nice having a digital textbook but sometimes the functions glitch out and act super weird, especially highlighting and the concept maps. It’s annoying how it takes me back to the top when I change the color of highlights and sometimes doing that makes it drag all the way to the top and I can’t scroll down again. This goes away when I close the app and open it again, but still weird. As for the concept maps, I click on the first thing and there’s often a text box that doesn’t go away, covering up other text. Sometimes tapping it works but usually not.
Thanks for making this stuff work as well as it does and I hope my feedback is helpful! I appreciate having a textbook on my phone and computer.
Split view 2/5
This app was split view compatible. Now I have to go back and forth to make notes. One of the reasons why I bought the iPad Pro. Please fix!!!
Log in 3/5
Can’t even log in the app, but no problem through my school website.
Partially Works 2/5
I love the concept of this app and severely appreciate the effort that was expended into creating it. However, I have encountered the same issue consistently: I cannot download my book so I can listen to the audio without WiFi. I’ll press the “download button,” and it will say it’s been downloaded, but I still can’t listen to the audio unless connected to the internet. I have very limited data and work full time, so I rely heavily on the idea of listening to my textbooks on the drive to and from my job, but I can’t get the app to work. The first time I tried it, I thought it worked, but it was actually running on my data of which I ended up using all of, all while driving to work. :(
I just want to be able to download the audio so I can listen to it offline.
Always have some problems 1/5
By JPto isa
I don’t understand why professors using this app. Always have some problems. I had to call technical support many times. Technical support always busy.
Apple products 5/5
By Jamie McMillian
Where is the download if you’re using an iPhone or iPad. Easy access to all the books and assignments
Great for school! 5/5
I love how convenient this app is, it’s quick, never crashes and helps me finish work quickly.
HAVING DIFFICULTY SINCE UPDATE 3/5
Since I ran the update, that I was forced to, the app has not run the same. It will not proceed to the next module with out exited and scrolling through previously read modules. On the first quiz I took, the program glitched and told me I had the wrong answer. The hint did not come up to show the Learning Objective either. So I work my way through the other three answers, even though I was only suppose to be given 3 tries only to realize that the first answer I gave was correct therefore losing points on the quiz. I am working through this as an instructor before my students do. How can I depend on this to work and grade correctly for them? Please fix! I would have given it 5 stars before this happened
By can i just submit my review 🙄
Its amazing! Well structured and easy to follow. I prefer it to the website version honestly.
They need to add split screen to view two different apps at once 1/5
By Son of a Sea monkey
This app doesn’t support split screen and it should. You cant read your textbook and take notes on a notes app at the same time.
Amazing app 5/5
Great learning app for your college class! Highly recommend!
By Alyssa Sheninigan
Make sure you have the user information memorized like all the other 50 passwords you need to know for college. It’ll log you out every time you close it.
Almost perfect! 4/5
By nej onejencopw
The audio option has a lot of glitches and delays. I love that it plays even when my phone is locked, but often it will skip around chapters. I also wish it had a custom starting point within each section
Love this app 5/5
Very simple to use
Very hard to use. 1/5
Textbook; ART A Brief History. Constant delayed motions while scrolling or selecting components. Very limited options of note-taking, which makes learning so much frustrating. The Closer Look sections are frequently not accessible, so painful... Worst part? Charged me $69 for one textbook.
Freezes on my phone 1/5
By Needs more money bonus.
I keep tapping on the answers and it freezes so I’m taping then the answer is wrong but it’s not because they are the answers.
5 stars! 5/5
I think All professors should use Revel! It’s a great learning tool for students!
Please fix 1/5
I paid $69 and the audio on this app and on the desktop is not working. Please fix ASAP. Thank you ☺️
Search issues 2/5
Overall good app, but since the last update that was supposed to improve searching, no search results are loading. I go to search a term or person and it says there is no results, however when I search that same word on my computer it comes up no problem. Would really appreciate it being fixed, as there were no issues before the recent update.
The quizzes are great 5/5
The short interactive quizzes are helpful in ensuring comprehension.
When I need to highlight, the page keeps swiping left or right on its own! Not happy about this.
I can’t copy and paste 1/5
On iPad Pro and it also doesn’t utilize the split screen feature. Very irritating - especially since the website access is incompatible so you’re pretty much forced to use the app version.
Buggy and poorly formatted 1/5
The audio for the textbook will play the first chapter, when a another chapter is selected to be played. The general layout for the app is hard to read.
It glitches out only after a few minutes of searching terms 1/5
I search terms a lot in my books. After only a few minutes of searching different terms, the whole app glitches, the screen shakes and flashes, I can’t do anything but close and relaunch the app. I wouldn’t use this app if I had another option. (I should have bought the book. But I’m a broke dental student. E-books are cheaper. 🤦🏼♀️)
3 1/2 It’s good but with issues 3/5
It’s good to have this app, I can listen to chapters anywhere. But when it comes listening to the audiobook, it has problems. There are times when I’m trying to listen to a certain section (i.e. let’s say chapter 6), but the “narrator” would go waaaay back and start reading the first chapter. It doesn't matter if I click on the certain chapter I want to be read, the app will have a mind of its own. I have to close the app completely and do it again.
Works Well 5/5
By Emily Mio
I am almost through my first class using this app and it works well and hasn't caused me any problems.
