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.

An important topic and a great price ($free) help you overlook some of the clumsy design in this game-driven rescue mission that is infused with facts about some of the world's big problems like human displacement, disease, deforestation, drought and pollution. Your job is to help five children move through a board-game style menu to rescue others by moving through mazes or matching items to problems. Progress is bookmarked automatically for one player, using a nicely designed board game-style progress system as a menu. Development costs were supported by UNESCO MGIEP, and the themes come from Kenya, Norway, Brazil, India, and China. There's some reading involved via comic-book style text, which is not necessarily a bad thing. But some of the games are less than responsive or tricky to figure out on the first play. This can be easily overlooked because once you learn the learn the first level, you pretty much know what to do.
