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.

In the well designed "Nighty Night" apps from Fox & Sheep http://reviews.childrenstech.com/ctr/review.php?id=14567 the objective is to gently put some farm animals to sleep, one tap at a time.

This app takes the opposite approach. This time you wake six young Shrek-inspired characters, including Shrek, and a young Toothless dragon and help them get ready for the day.

Some are hard to wake. You might open the blinds, remove their sheets, strum the guitar or pop balloons. But soon the eyes open and the narrator gently says "Good Morning" in your choice of 17 languages.

An arrow icon then appears, letting you move to the bathroom, for the next screen. There, you help your friend brush his/her teeth and wash. The final two stations include eating and packing items for the day. Once all six creatures are awake, you get to do it all over again. There's just enough content to keep thing's interesting, and there are some spicy ideas such as eating bugs for breakfast, and brushing your teeth with green toothpaste. We checked the narration of five of the 17 languages and all were excellent. Like a Sago Mini app, this experience is high in accidental success, making it a good fail-safe starter app for a young preschooler.
