Papers don’t write themselves, but Pearson Writer makes it easier with writing and research support whenever, and wherever you need it. Get the app free with your Pearson Writer desktop subscription, to manage your writing and research anywhere you go.

Manage all your writing projects directly from your phone or tablet—get answers to your questions about research and grammar, instantly cite (search or scan) and organize your sources, keep notes, view full text sources while you research, and get automatic feedback on your writing.

The writer’s guide gives reliable answers to all of your questions about research, documentation, grammar, and other writing topics. No need to carry around a handbook or weed through search engine results--just use the guide to see relevant and clear explanations, videos, podcasts, and examples.

The project manager helps you stay on top of multiple projects, and makes organizing your ideas and sources less cumbersome. The notebook allows you to organize your notes visually, link each note to sources, and generate an outline, and the note clipper feature enables you to clip sources easily from the web.

The automatic writing review feature (available on the tablet and desktop apps) helps you check your paper for possible spelling, grammar, and style errors, while offering grammar lessons and suggestions for revising and editing.

Ratings and Reviews

Can't even explore the app


I would have to buy a six month subscription to even try the app to see if it works for me. I understand needing to make money, but not even offering a seven day trial for $1.99 or something close? Come on!

Truly Unique!


The research tools easily won me over in the beginning after purchasing this app. I was conflicted to which search engine was most appropriate for academic writing, so when i realized i could do everything in this one app for class it blew my mind. It connects all of your drafts, research, and works cited to create the ultimate college student app. Good resources throughout the entire program.

All around amazing!


This product makes my life so much easier! It offers everything from help finding resources to checking your paper for mistakes. Let me just say it does a way better job than Word too. If you haven't checked this product out I highly recommend it! I will not be writing a paper without the help of Pearson Writer in the future!
