What is the meaning behind English IDIOMS, and where do they come from?

Join Professor Potts and a MILLION users to discover the secret history of HUNDREDS of beautifully illustrated English idioms, from "Achilles’ heel" to "Wrong side of bed".


An idiom is an expression or term that is unique to a language, whose meaning can not be understood by reading the words. The origins of these unusual phrases are astonishing, poetic, bizarre and sometime mysterious.


English Idioms Illustrated is enjoyed by English students, teachers and enthusiasts alike. The origin and meaning of each idiom is masterfully illustrated and explained by Professor Potts. Download now to see for yourself!


There are 35 free idioms.
If you want more idioms, you need to make an in-app purchase for the whole collection…and support the author/artist !!!

Currently there are 250 idioms including:

Achilles’ heel
Bite the bullet
Cross the Rubicon
Dark horse
First rate
Guinea pig
In a nutshell
Jump on the bandwagon
Knuckle down
Lion’s share
Mad as a hatter
No holds barred
Once in a blue moon
Point blank
Real McCoy
Salt of the earth
Turn over a new leaf
Up to scratch
Wild goose chase


Professor Potts is a dashing investigator who loves nothing more than jet-setting around the world exploring scientific mysteries. His butler has a PhD in nuclear science and his dog will only eat bones from the Jurassic period.

Aidan Potts -his alter ego- has a slightly more tedious biography. Aidan was born in London 1963 and 6 months later he moved to Nigeria, followed by Bogota, Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, Tripoli, Libya and the Turks and Caicos. He studied History of Art at University College London, then began working as an illustrator for the British press. Among his books are “Uneversaurus” and “The Smash Smash Truck”.

Examples required!

Although it is quite illustrative, the description well, gives the idea of a phrase but how do you use it remains a mystery due to lack of examples. Adding few usage examples would be great.

Plain theft

The app is a blatant act of stealing your money! DON’T BUY IT. I bought it awhile ago but when I got around to actually studying the idioms (I’m a busy person), it turned out my purchase was gone and I couldn’t restore it. To the developer: well done, Mr.Thief, I hope Apple removes your app altogether.

Ответ разработчика ,

I am the author, illustrator and creator of this app. As I work alone with limited funds I am prone to making mistakes. I am very, very sorry for the loss of data which means previous buyers of the app can no longer access the full version. I take customer satisfaction very seriously and you can contact me through the app, the Facebook page, my website or by emailing me at profpotts@professorpotts .com. I will refund you in full, or supply you with a free version of the app.
I don’t want anyone to feel ripped off. Once again my sincere apologies and please could you edit your comment to reflect my genuine attempt to do the right thing. Many thanks Aidan Potts
