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.

A simple, voice-driven story where you speak (out loud) short written commands to control your character. This is an extremely strong early reading experience, as we've seen with other software experiences like this one over the years. Once children learn that what they say can drive the screen activity, they understand the power of reading.

Scaffolding features include the ability to hear the words modeled. You can also skip ahead in the story in case your voice isn't picked up. This is an extremely strong early reading experience. Scaffolding features include the ability to hear the words sentence read outloud, plus you can jump forward in the story. After you download the app and grant permissions for voice commands, you see different actions on command.

Need to know: This app has some design flaws to note. The microphone doesn't always react, and the background music can become annoying. But these are minor problems because you can skip sentences at any time. One third of the app is free, unlocked; two other stories are locked, offered in the main menu as IAP.
