Buffalo software – Apps 2

We had some days off and I took my time to explore some apps. I have a smarthphone not Iphone, so I don’t have the chance to check Istore’s apps :(. Similarly to the majority of  limeños, I am fond of free apps. I was reviewing some to learn and practice idioms, which meant downloading and trying them.

Luckily I run into of the apps of Buffalo software: Idioms and Phrases. Honestly I had tried it before; however, perhaps due to my old and defective smartphone it didn’t work well. On the weekend it didn’t either, but today I tried one more time and it’s working perfectly. There are many more that just offer a dictionary like approach –  read and understand without practice.

I wrote this today but I changed my mind since the app stopped working well! 😦 The quiz doesn’t open unless you choose at least 2 categories and the questions have the answers on them!!!

It’s a shame to have such a superb idea wasted. On the other hand, they do have one that works well: 3350+ English Grammar Practice



You can check your answers one by one. Touch the tick on the top corner on the right and it show you how many right, wrong and unanswered questions you have. Therefore, if you check one by one you’ll know if it was right or not.

I’ll keep looking for free apps that are worth it!

Have an awesome day!

EGG and EGG – idiom of the week


Egg picture retrieved from pixabay


I don’t eat eggs but I can talk about them. Eggs in sentences:

Felice jumped from the bridge after her boyfriend egged her on.

We just couldn’t help it. We shouted at Skyler because he kept egging us on.

The others egged me on to drink more. I was already drunk so I didn’t care.

Don’t let others egg you on!

Have you ever egged someone on? When was the last time you were egged on by someone?

Cambridge dictionary: to strongly encourage someone to do something that might not be a very good idea

The free dictionary: egg on – urge on; cause to act; “The other children egged the boy on, but he did not want to throw the stone through the window”
