    Nicely compiled but utterly useless. What sort of an idiot would pay another idiot to know of an idiom? You can just create your own idiom.

    Recommend for those English as Second Language, because learning it daily randomly makes huge difference, than other apps only provide search, which is proven the developer is not so "down to the earth!"
