App Store Description

Te Reo Māori is a Māori language dictionary that is easy to use by searching for Māori or English words. As well as English meanings, it has example sentences with translations for many entries. It even has photographs and audio clips for Aotearoa/New Zealand native fauna and photographs of flora, important people and other items where a photograph will aid understanding.

As well as the words one would expect in a traditional dictionary, it also has encyclopaedic entries designed to provide key information about plants, animals, stars, planets, heavenly bodies, important Māori people, key ancestors of traditional narratives, tribal groups, ancestral canoes, song types, musical instruments, Māori names for institutions, country names, place names and other proper names. There are also detailed explanations of key concepts central to Māori culture. Comprehensive explanations for grammatical items are included, with examples of usage, as are idioms and colloquialisms with their meanings and examples.

Please note that this app is optimised for use on the iPhone 5 or higher iPhones, iPads and 5th generation iPod Touch devices. Other devices may find the app slow to produce search results.

As well as online use, the app is also designed for offline use so it is fully self-contained and doesn't need to be connected to the internet in order to operate. There are currently over 24,000 Māori headwords entries in the database, which will be added to over time.

The Te Reo Maori app is the companion to the popular www.maoridictionary.co.nz website and forms part of the Te Whanake Māori Language learning series.
