I know basic Hawaiian from my 'Ohana growing up.. My problem is my android keyboard doesn't have any kahako for me to use so i keep getting corrected. Anyone have any suggestions

To add the accents w/ android you need to hold the letter down until more options pop up above the held letter, then choose the correct accent you want.

there are keyboard apps you can download and then in the app you can choose what keyboard youd like- then click hawaiian :)

I just accidentally put in kēlā kaikamahine (boxes) in a hurry and it was accepted as a correct answer and not a typo, what?? I understand kēlā and kēnā both being ambiguously translated to that, but to have kēlā translated to this is just plain wrong. Reported.

That Was A Typo That i put Ke Kaikamahine & Not Keia Kaikamahine

I thought kēlā with accents on both vowels meant "that" and kēla meant "this". It said I had a spelling error and that it needed 2 accents when it asked me to translate "this"
