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: causality, stopping, starting, trains
This nicely illustrated starter app will work well with a young preschooler, despite an interface that could offer more to do. The idea is to move a train through a series of stops, by tapping on the screen. The trouble is you don't know exactly where to tap.

To move the train, you touch it (a longer touch makes the train move faster).

Your first stop is the orchard where you load three cars up with apples, one step at a time. Each screen tap moves a crane, which fills the car. The process can't really be sped up -- so you have to move through the process at each station. The next stop is the pie factory.. and so on. Each station is operated by sheep. We liked how the colors of the sheep have nothing to do with good or bad behavior (the "black" sheep are depicted in both helping and mischievous roles).

Content includes 30 stops. Testers noted that it is possible to accidentally reset progress which makes you start over. No internet is required, and no information is collected.
