{App Review} English Idioms Trainer Professional by Education Terra

As I was writing my post about apps for SLPs I noticed that there were only a few for idioms. So I was excited to receive a copy of the full version of this app to try out. I like that it has lots of idioms (284 in the version reviewed for this post), that they are sorted alphabetically, that there is a quiz and that you can choose which letter category of idioms to include in the quiz. I also like that the background music can be toggled off. This app will be helpful for those patients who have mastered the simple / more common idioms included in most card decks but who still struggle with this type of figurative language. The app doesn’t include any pictures so it would likely be a bit too challenging when first introducing idioms.

The only suggestion I have for the app developer is the price. Based on the pricing history on AppShopper, the app was initially priced at $2.99 and has been on sale as low as $1.99. The $1.99-$2.99 price range seems more in line with the features of this app than the current price of $9.99.

They also have a free lite version to try out before buying the full version. Be aware that it likely contains ads: English Idioms Trainer by Education Terra, https://appsto.re/us/7jP_9.i.
