motî should be self-explanatory, but here a short overview of the main functionality.

Install a dictionary


Tap on one of the big arrow buttons next to the language name (surprise!).

Delete a dictionary


Simply slide the dictionary row to the left and confirm by tapping the red Delete button.

Don’t worry about deleting dictionaries, you can always reinstall them later.

Search for a word


Open a dictionary, enter a search term and get a list of results. The top half of each row shows the headword, the bottom half English glosses.

The terms matching the search query are highlighted in bold.

The search is approximate, which means that some misspellings are automatically corrected and included in the search results: a search for “houze” also returns results for “house”.

Get detailed word information


The detail view shows the headword (and optionally the grammatical gender), the pronunication in IPA notation followed by a list of numbered senses.

Each sense can additionally have:

Entries with more than one meaning will also have a segmented control in the toolbar.

In this example Portuguese casa can be a noun (“house”) or a verb (”he/she marries”, from casar).

Manage your entry history


The entry history is available from the start screen or via the clock icon in the search bar.

To delete an individual item, slide the row to the left and select Delete. To delete the entire browsing history proceeed in the same way you delete dictionaries.

You can also completely disable the history in the application preferences, accessible via the standard iOS Settings (SettingsmotîEntry history).

Your search history is never sent anywhere, only stored on the device and will be saved as part of the standard iTunes backup procedure.
