eText 2.0 App: "This title is not yet available for mobile." Message
My eText PDF book in the eText 2.0 app Bookshelf says “This title is not yet available for mobile.” How can I access my eText?
Before users can open any book using the eText 2.0 app, they must download it from the Bookshelf first. For some eText PDF titles, users see “This title is not yet available for mobile” instead of the Download Book option.
This message appears in the eText 2.0 app for smartphones and tablets, released January 20, 2017. After you sign in to the app using your Pearson user account for a MyLab or Mastering higher education product, the Bookshelf lists books for your account. The books can be either native eText 2.0 (non-PDF) titles or eText (PDF) titles, which are based on earlier technology.
The “This title is not yet available for mobile” message means your eText book is in line to be converted as a PDF for reading on the eText 2.0 app, but it’s not ready yet. Conversion of eText books is ongoing.
- In the meantime: You can access your eText on a tablet using an alternate app. For instructions, see eText for iPad: Requirements and Get Started or eText for Android Tablets: FAQs.
- After your eText is converted to a PDF: The Download Book option becomes available from the eText 2.0 app Bookshelf (requires sign-in). Download your book to read it on either a smartphone or tablet. Features such as search, notes, and bookmarks are not yet supported.
