Latest reviews of Idioms Lite app for iPhone and iPad

Im tired
Im tired of seeing the name of this guy (eknath) below every english related app. All the trials are mere scrap.
Are these idioms?
I am totally into it for two weeks. It is a great application for people who already know english as a subject during school or college life but need to speak in USA.
Learning idioms in school and it really helps!!!!!
Definitions are too complicated
I had hoped to use this with students who were learning the meaning of idioms, but the definitions and examples are often obscure and more complicated to understand than the original idiom.
