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: Pokémon, logic, memory, matching
This is a free download with commercial content including external links to Pokémon commercials and additional Pokémon experiences. The menu is well designed, making the app easy to use, and the games are fun with some reading and logic opportunities.

The app was being featured this week (July 2018) by Apple, so we tested the iPad version. We discovered a beautiful, easy to use experience that tracks progress. You start with a view of an island that you rotate with a swipe, and then can zoom into one of the Pokémon activities or commercials. We found three commercial areas of the island that are freely mixed with the less commercial tutorials -- a card scanner with links to a store, a movie viewer with Pokémon commercials and a "news" station with more ads. The games follow tried and true formats -- there are multiple-choice style quizzes, memory games and more.

Content comes from Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. The Pokémon TCG (Trading Card Game) Match activity tests your knowledge of Pokémon TCG cards. As you play, you can earn energy symbol pins. Other games teach the basics of Pokémon, such as Poké Ball Throw or the Battle Matchups quiz. There are both day and night modes, and the Poké Ball Roll activity lets you guide Poké Balls through a fancy maze filled with obstacles.

The perky camp counselors offer hints, and introduce new games. Note that access to the camera, storage, and phone functionality is required to use the Camp Pokémon app.
