Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

Number 8 in Tinybop’s Explorer’s series, Space should more accurately be called "Hands On With the Solar System." After you create a rocket, you blast off on a mission to visit each planet. Each planet offers different sets of tests. There's a cross-section viewer so you can see the insides, and a snowman that you can drag and drop to the surface to test the temperature. You can see how gravity works by throwing a huge bolder at the planet, and objects on the screen can be labeled with a toggle on/off, which are available in many languages.

There are several ways to navigate -- a fact that makes this app confusing at first, but also increases the chance you'll stumble into something interesting. So you can call this "good confusion."

We especially liked the distance calculator and the way you can compare the time of each planet orbit, relative to the earth. Nice touches include the planet size comparison tool, and close up view of Jupiter's spot. It helps you understand that on the relative scale of the universe, we're all pretty tiny. Kids can discover new worlds in other Explorer’s Library apps, including The Human Body, Plants, Simple Machines, The Earth, Weather, Homes, and Skyscrapers.
