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.

Teaches: cooking, creativity, storytelling
Here's another tasty Dr. Panda app, but it sadly comes with the bad after-taste of IAPs and ads (for other Dr. Panda apps). But it's "free" and with a bit of dancing around, you can get some fun out of the app without making a purchase. While we understand the app store pressure to list "free" content, the placement of tempting items (ingredients, cooking tools and recipes) in front of a curious preschooler is never good practice. In the words of the publisher "Dr. Panda Restaurant 3 is a free educational game for kids offering in-app purchases to unlock additional content. These are one-time purchases which will permanently unlock the content for your account. Check your device settings for more detailed parental options regarding in-app purchases."

Like many cooking games, you get to run your own restaurant, with a steady stream of customers. The more you cook, the more coins you earn, and the more items you can unlock. While most of the actual "cooking" is automated, there are some nice touches. You notice that some customers prefer specific ingredients, and the gas stove really looks hot. Content includes 20 ingredients and condiments, recipes for pizzas, burgers and pasta and a nice variety of kitchen tools.

Our recommendation is to download this app, but be prepared to invest the $4.99 right away to get the teasing out of the way. This is a good app studio that deserves the income; and your child will most certainly get $5 worth of play out of the app.
