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.

Fun, goofy and full of a variety of logic challenges, this beautifully illustrated adventure contains eight levels that effectively challenge your problem solving skills. While not perfect (some of the puzzles could use some better hints), this app is the best overall problem solving apps we've reviewed in 2017.

You help a crew of pirates move through each area of a treasure map, defeating challenges presented by a variety of enemies. You aim a bow and arrow to shoot down coconuts, Angry Birds style, or swipe to get your ship over rocks. In one screen, you shoot barrels at a giant squid. Each level has some type of logic or memory puzzle. The map/menu makes it easy to jump around in the game, although it is not possible to reset the app, and we couldn't find any options to control sound or adjust levels. No reading is required. The audio nicely accompanies the creative challenges.

Need to know:  There's no shortage of cartoon violence in this app, and some of the characters may have stereotyped appearances typical of the pirate genre. We'll be curious to see what the KIDMAP reviewers have to say.
