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.

This innovative, beautifully illustrated and designed fiction app lets you navigate through a bitter-sweet story by placing markers in various locations on the screen.

To move forward, you shift chunks of the landscapes -- displayed using a parallax illustration style -- to form bridges. This requires problem solving and planning. You may have to find an alternative path around a waterfall, or coax some sheep out of the way. The space relationships in this app are subtle and interesting, and they are expertly woven into the narrative elements. But the end goal -- to help an old man through his journey through a lifetime of memories, is worth the effort. Created in Austria by Felix Bohatsch, Clemens Scott and others of Broken Rules. Demonstrated at Dust or Magic AppCamp 17 as a "nice touch" by Lance Harris. Caution -- if you're really an old man, this story will make you cry.
