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.

How young is too young to collect Pokémon? This app says preschool. Designed to introduce the Pokémon franchise to young screen tappers, this playful, free app let's children classify, count, collect, bathe, feed and read about 54 animated Pokémon creatures. 

The experience is not especially creative and there's too much narration, and but your child will like the puzzles, and the chance to feed, groom and hatch more creatures.

The stories are well designed and they include highlighted text (touch each word to hear it read out loud) along with a simple interaction on each page. The more you play, the more eggs you hatch. There's a lot of content and we couldn't find any IAP or commercial content in this free app, making us think that motive is to broaden the reach of the Pokémon franchise. If that's the objective, this app succeeds.  

Need to know: You can't control the sound, and the narrator is excessively chatty.
