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.

Delightful multi-touch interactive design meets a the story of Florence Yeoh -- a young adult girl who is about to have her first serious boyfriend relationship.

Content includes 20 chapters theme-related narrative chunks each covering a stage of life, including Dreams, Exploration, Groceries, Routines, Driving and so on.

In the first chapter, you help Florence get out of bed by turning off her alarm clock (with a tap) and brushing her teeth (by swiping the toothbrush back and forth). About midway in story, she meets a cello player named Krish and her endless routine of work, sleep, and social media comes to an end. You participate in the relationship through a series of mini-game vignettes - from flirting to fighting. The app draws inspiration from 'slice of life' graphic novels and comics. The illustrations are simple and clear, and work will to support the narrative. Especially noteworthy is the way that text bubbles are illustrated through increasingly complicated puzzle shapes. Progress is bookmarked automatically. Apple gave this app it's highest honor at WWDC 2018 (the Apple Design Awards) and we have to agree that it is an excellent selection.

Despite the focus on a male/female relationship, there is no inappropriate content. The app was designed by the creators of Monument Valley.
