It's kinda fun, is it a serious bit of kit for learning Maori, maybe if you want a point n shoot experience to learn the odd word from everyday objects.. It's censorship feature would be better if it simply said Can not find a word, As an example I took a photo of my dog and it censored it because she wasn't looking at the camera. I don't know if this ever up dates, but it has a suggestion function, as well as a link to a better data base, for example I made a suggestion for an Ottoman..

I love Kupu! It makes me curious and I always want to take pictures to know what I'm looking at in Maori. The only negative side is that the words are very specific. If you take a picture of a window, something like "glass" could turn up but not window. Still, it's good that there's a search bar. And I like doing Kupu stories. <3

I think the range of kupu need to be updated as it is very limited. For example, I took a photo of a hair tie & it couldn't give me a word for it, so tried typing it, to no avail unfortunately. I do think the idea of the app is amazing, maybe use a different dictionary?

Hi Milana, Kupu relies on the latest technology so it won’t get it right every time, but it’s constantly learning and improving. The team at the Te Aka Māori Dictionary is helping us address all the feedback that’s coming through the app, so please keep using it and let us know if you spot something that isn’t quite right.
