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.

Teaches: math facts, counting, addition, shapes
Mix together an action packed cartoon with a math workbook and you get the idea of this well designed app. While there's a few quirks, you get a lot of play value for your $1.99; with some effective, responsive math practice along the way.

You start by creating your own main character using menus with adequate gender and ethnic options. Next you're off to the boost machine for a dose of fast-paced math facts problems, with narrated questions like "what number matches the number of oranges" (when shown sets of two types of objects). Content is all multiple choice, and it lines up with a typical Kindergarten math workbook; from counting to shapes. Correct answers earn coins for time with an arcade-style running game where you change lanes to collect more coins.

The playful tone is the perfect "sugar" for a dose of math facts. There's not much conceptual value to the math activities... this app doesn't go much further than math facts, and some of the graphics are cluttered. Also, when you reach the end of a level, you don't know if your progress is saved (it is) and we noticed that children are promoted to rate this app. We can guess that they'll give it a good rating, with no prompting required.
