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.

Here's another solid "My Town" app. The series of approximately 20 themed apps lets you freely arrange several hundred people, objects and critters among four pet themed rooms. As you explore you collect hidden stars to unlock more objects.

Content includes an animal shelter, vet office, clothing store and an animal park (try the trampolines).

There are 10 birds, 10 hamsters, 7 cats, 7 dogs, a vet, a store keeper, a nurse and a spa worker. There are a lot of props, include clothing and costumes. You can also give your people emotions, to make them laugh or cry.

Other My Town titles include Haunted House, Museum, Fire Station, Cars, Beauty Contest, Cinema, Grandparents, Preschool, Hotel, Spa Beauty Salon, Dance School, Fashion Show, Wedding, Police Station, School, Stores, Daycare, Beach & Picnic, Hospital and Home.

Need to know: Compared to the Toca Life series, the art is more realistic and there are more themes, but the user interface is less smooth. If you watch some of the testing footage, you'll note that the doors from one room to another don't always open easily, and the objects don't always interact with each other the way you'd like.

Also we did not like the timing of the link to a "rate this app" page that appears immediately after you win a new prop; as well as the catalog of additional apps that is hiding behind a nondescript game control icon on the main menu. These, of course, are minor issues that a child will learn to get around, but they should be noted. All in all, this is a fun, easy to use experience that children can play together thanks to multi-touch. It's well worth the download.
