Pearson eText App for iPad

The Pearson eText app is a great companion to Pearson’s eText browser-based book reader. It allows existing subscribers who view their Pearson eText titles on a Mac or PC to additionally access their titles in a bookshelf on the iPad either online or via download. With the eText app, book content is displayed with the highest quality fidelity to the print and online versions of the textbook. The app provides students and instructors with many of the same features available to browser-based eText subscribers. The eText app provides full-text search capabilities, highlights, notes, bookmarks, support for multimedia content, glossaries, multitasking, ability to create study groups and many other exciting features!
