Every idiom has a sound for the idiom, an example sentence, and a practice sound with space for repetition.
Study in THREE different ways:

1) Study Pages: See all data for the idiom on one convenient, scrollable page. Tap the idiom to hear it spoken, see the romaji and English definitions, read the comments and etymology, and read & listen to the example sentence to see how the idiom is used in real Japanese. In addition to hearing just the idiom and example sentence, it also has a sound file that leaves a space for repetition, a slowed-down version, the example sentence, and the English too.

2) Flash cards: Select one of the eight categories; choose to display the Japanese or the English on the front of the flashcard; flip the card to see the meaning and notes; and tap the sound icon to hear it spoken. You can also practice the example sentences in the Flash card section.

3) Quiz mode: Select one or more categories and 15 random multiple choice questions will be generated from those categor(ies). Please see screenshots or our video at the support site to see it in action! Missed answers are reviewed and studied after the quiz finishes.


A great way to learn vocabulary and grammar is to memorize phrases and to know when to use them. Listening and repeating the words and phrases also help improve pronunciation and listening comprehension.

As I believe it is still a copyrighted book, and thus illegal to distribute, we're not going to point you to an illegal copy here.


Also, the iPhone apps page isn't even the right place to be asking this question in the first place.
