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: Spatial relations, matching, classification, logic (shapes)

Simple geometry comes to life in this clever set of five living puzzles from Italy. The app starts in Italian but don't worry, no reading is required.

You start with a shower of squares, circles and triangles, along with the outline of one shape. You are free to drag and drop the shapes, but learn that if you make a match, a second shape outline appears on the screen. Those provide feedback, as well as issues a new challenge. Ten or so matches later, you've built a car that drives off the screen, and you can try it again with a slightly more challenging boat.

The parent materials are in your choice of Italian, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Korean, French, Japanese, English, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. Created by di Nicola Bigi, Riboldazzi Federico and Gianluca Parisi.

You need to know that there's very little content in this app. But the way it's carefully presented is the reason it made it's way onto the BolognaRagazzi Digital Prize short list.
