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 for Aotearoa/New Zealand native flora and fauna.

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 designed for use on Android 2.3.3 or higher devices

The app is 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 around 13,000 headwords 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 Maori Language learning series.

    This is a very nice app. Unfortunately it has stopped working - any search returns " 0 results for ..... ". This has happened on a tablet (Samsung Note 8, Android 4.2.2) and a smart phone (Huawei Y320, Android 4.2.2). On both devices I have uninstalled and re-installed the app to no avail. Hope you can sort this soon and it can get the rating it deserves.

    It's stopped working since Monday last week. Can you please fix it. I have a Samsung S5. Where is your technical support to contact. I only have this way which is silly. Will change back to 5 if you get this working.

    I have this app on my ipad and it is very useful especially for a te reo learner like me. Unfortunately it does not work at all on my S3 phone. If I try to look up a word it just hangs. If they fix it I would be more than happy to give it the high rating it deserves.

    Great easy to use and finds most words. Just wish the sentences were more updated. They are really oldfashioned.
