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.

Augmented reality meets voice recognition in this extremely innovative app from the UK that was named a winner of the BolognaRagazzi Digital Award for 2019. The app lets you direct AR characters with your voice, using short verbal voice commands. In the story, you help Wonder, The Ringmaster of Wonder’s Land get ready for the carnival’s big opening. The idea is to solve problems by reading short sentences, like helping a stunt plane fly around your room. The app is based on three historical stunts, including those by Betty Bromage, an 88-year old grandmother that stood on the wings of an airborne bi-plane; Helen Gibson, Hollywood’s first stuntwoman; and Charles Blondin, the first person to tightrope walk across Niagara Falls.

As you explore, you can meet, help, and talk to pioneers, inventors, and heroes. There's not a lot to actually do in this voice directed app other than to read short sentences. But the production quality merged with two emerging technologies (voice recognition and augmented reality) is certainly noteworthy. The app works on newer iPhones and iPads ( iOS 11 or better). The first adventure is free; others are offered for $4.99 each as IAP.
