Pearson eText for Schools
By NCS Pearson
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
To access your titles:
1. Install this app on your iPad.
2. In the eText app, when prompted to Sign In, enter a valid Pearson Username and Password.
3. Your bookshelf will display your subscribed titles.
Note: If you receive a message stating "Invalid Username or Password" and you've entered the information correctly, your subscribed titles may not yet be available on iPad.

Good but could use a few more features!
I am a high school teacher and I am testing a few books out with my Spanish 4 class this year. The app is nice to not have to carry around hard copies of books and works smoothly on the iPad (our whole high school is on a one to one iPad program). The app could use more features, like an option to write on the book with a stylus, and more accurate highlighting (my highlights sometimes mysteriously move around and get resized). Also, the audio feature for listening to selections doesn't always work smoothly, and you have to scroll down within the box to find the play button. Not very intuitive. Looking forward to future updates!
App has gotten worse but Tec Team to Rescue!
I now have 2 Persen app accouts. I used to be able to switch between both of them ok with signing out each time. All of a sudden, my first accout keeps mysteriously logging out every single time i minimize or switch the app. This was ok the first few times but, after a hard reset, a reboot, and a full restore, the troubles continue.
This is just ridiculous because, it has gotten to the point where I just am so fed up with this app that, I have ditched it and, it is more worth it to get detention for using my personal school computer in class. What's the point of a app when, you have 2 different school accounts to sign into and, the iOS version is so dummied down that, people ditch it every day?
Just saying a option to switch accounts would be nice (School accouts)
Out of all of this, this company has followed at least 1 of my requests. They sent there devoper team to add the Pearsen Sucess net intigration.
So Overall, this team is dedicated to getting the job done.
Thanks for your help and COnsideration 😃
Good but now it doesn't work
The idea of this app is great and it helps a lot to not have to carry around so many books, but ever since I updated to iOS 8 it won't work. If I don't have any wifi, the app will either crash immediately after I open it or it won't crash but it will show that the book is not downloaded even though it is and I can't open it. Later when I had internet, it showed the book was downloaded. I really hope you will fix the app so I can use it again.
