Too many irrelevant notifications 1/5
I love the functionality but if I have to dismiss another notification telling me to use the app and not informing me that I have a message I will delete it.
I'm having tons of fun with this app! No more group texts for me and my friends. This app has made it so much easier for us busy moms to chat back and forth. It’s also been great for letting me connect with my long distance family and friends ❤️ I’m hopeful that one day the app will add more emojis, better filters, and more voice changing options!
Great night shift parents 5/5
This app is AMAZING. It allows our family to stay connected better. My police officer husband can leave bedtime messages for our girls and then they can leave messages for him when they wake up. So much fun.
My husband and I 5/5

We just added this app and we can’t stop laughing! The helium version is hilarious.
I like it lots 5/5
By looney lane
Much better than FaceTime. I can leave a video and grandkids can answer when they want!
3 stars 3/5
I only give it three because you can’t cancel your video. Once you hit the record button it sends it straight through to the person. Unless I’m wrong?
Very useful and fun.
Need to save other half of conversation 4/5
Love the app but it only lets you save your half of an interaction. Would love to be able to save the other persons side also.
Last month I posted a review(I think that y’all really need to make a new update where you can also take pictures! Like not just videos but also pictures!!! I love that you can take really long videos! But pls pls pls add pictures! I think everyone would like that!) and I just wanted to say that me and lots of my friends want to be able to send pictures and still be able to draw on them and type on them! We also thought that maybe some cool face filters for your pictures or videos would be fun! And I mean like animal face filters and things like that. Face filters like the ones on SnapChat But it would be great if we could send pictures with texts on them if we are in an area where we can’t send videos because people are talking and we don’t want there voices in the video. And also my friend who does not have an iPhone can play music while taking a Marco Polo and the music plays in the video while she is talking but I can’t do that and I would like to be able to! I don’t know if that is something to do with y’all or if it’s just iPhones. But I LOVE the app and it’s a fun way to talk to your friends!
The iPhone X Notch 4/5
I love this app. It’s a really great way to keep in touch with friends and most fun for groups of friends to communicate. This is a small (yet annoying) thing, but is there a way to make it so the group/friend names aren’t cut off right where the camera is on the iPhone X???
Love it 4/5
So far I’m thrilled with the app. Even got my 78 year old aunt using it. What annoys me a bit is the updates don’t tell you what exactly they are updating. And that is nice information to have. So maybe the developers can give a bit of info on that. Other then that thumbs up
Clear and manageable, but some times it does a lot of buffing!
Fantastic App! 4 Stars for improvement 4/5
Marco polo is a really good app. It does exactly what I need and it does it well. I am able to have multi stream conversations with my extended family, family and friends. The only downside is it's sometimes hard to remember what the other person has said when composing your response, If their message is really long.
My videos are very staticky... an no one can hear me
Great Fun! 5/5
By LaJeana Young
This has been such a fun and easy way to stay in contact with family & friends. We want other voice modifications. But, that’s just because we use it so often🤪
Great for longer video messaging (Updated) 3/5
Snapchat has its place and Marco Polo pickups where it lacks.
Update: Marco Polo is a great app for family and friends to stay in touch. We had several members of our family download the app so they can stay in touch with the newest and littlest member of the family. We have family spread out from California to Florida and they love getting the daily update about our daughter.
Having said that there are some updates that should be added to make the Marco Polo experience more robust.
1) New filters and voice changers. I understand that this app was developed by a small group and making large changes can be difficult, but in this rapidly changing and on-demand society having the same 6-7 filters gets old fast.
2) The ability to upload videos from the camera roll/gallery. I will not record special moments in Marco Polo because when the video is sent to the servers it is compressed and the quality is significantly reduced. When you download a video from your timeline it is once again reduced and the final product looks like something that was recorded on a Blackberry circa 2009-2010. So I record them and share them via other mediums that allow me to send high quality video ie Facebook, Snapchat, or WhatsApp. Lacking this feature is what made take one star away on my updated review.
3) Notifications - This a small request (says the guy who doesn’t code at all), but when I click on a message and don’t watch the whole thing it shows that I still have a new message waiting. I have several group chats going at once and it’s hard to know which group still has a video that I need watch. 90% of the time the last few seconds of a message are people fumbling for the stop button on the screen. I don’t need to go back and watch that. So as soon as I tap on the video it should register as read not new.
Again, the third item is a knit pick request. Items 1 and 2 I think should be added sooner rather than later.
A way to keep in contact! 5/5
By Happiness sgt
I love this app. I can understand and manage to keep in touch simply with my family and friends. I can say good morning, goodnight and pray and check in with my grands. I love it!
Love it 5/5
Perfect for leaving a message!
It's all good 5/5

Marco Polo 5/5
I’m using it with my friends and so far we seniors are loving it .
Something to do when you want a good laugh with your family an friends!! ❤️
Luv Marco Polooooo 5/5
I have family in many states,so we enjoy talking as a group
18 of us telling stories so it's hard to catch up but we have so much laughter
By Jocelyn Valencia
Hi can u just fix the carma b
Enjoying my big brother and our niece and nephews💕 4/5
What a great way to eye ball each other ever so often🙏🏿
Needs an update!!!!!!! 2/5
I love Marco Polo and use is daily. However, it’s not compatible with iPhone 10. It works - just everything is blurry and pixilated, can’t see the group chat name, (or the person I’m speaking to) and the text is spread out and wide and goes off the screen. Will change rate to 5 star when my iPhone X and Marco Polo work well together.
Loving This App
By Crashing with no result
App crashes. Never been able to use it yet on my iPhone 6s running the latest iOS. Disappointed!
Just started using 2/5
My family and I just started using this app, as we live in different parts of the country. My initial impression is that this app is okay. I wouldn’t use it with friends, because I simply don’t see it catching on. I’m a millennial, and Snapchat definitely has my age group captivated at the moment.
The number one thing I HATE about this app is that you can’t review videos before sending them; they send automatically. For that reason, I won’t use this app regularly, and I have to be very careful. That’s another reason why I’ll use it with my family and no one else.
This app could be cool and fun, but it’s a while off.
Marco Polo 5/5
I love this ap ! It's an awesome way to connect to friends in a more personal way and yet has the convenience of text in that u can leave video clip and respond at your availability. And this works when u work a lot and want a more personal connect to friends and loved ones ! Visual and easy to use. A big THANKZ to Marco Polo
Great but... 4/5
This app is great. It’s super easy to send short or long messages to your friend and loved ones in the instance that a lot hone call won’t suffice. I just feel as if there should be some minor updates and features added. For starters I do think the app should send out an update to optimize itself for the iPhone X. Current half the screen gets cut due to the new phone design. I also think it would be great to add in a notepad feature so you can take notes of what you’re friends are saying when they send a lengthy message!
It’s pretty neat 5/5
I don’t hate this app, so far getting a good use out of it. 5/5 would use again
I love this app! 5/5
Video messaging allows one to see the face of the sender. There is no misunderstanding tone of voice which is non-detectable in written text. It is also faster to just say what you want to communicate. I love this app!
love but my working for iphone x 4/5
I love this app, but it is not working anymore with my new iPhone x. Please fix! It is one of the only ways I am able to connect with my family and my friends.
Not optimized for iPhone X 2/5
This app worked great on my old iPhone 5S. But after switching to the 10th Anniversary iPhone, the app is basically unusable. I can’t watch videos, or even send my own. Loved it when it worked. Definitely needs an update to support the newest iPhone. My other friend who also has the same phone has had problems as well.
Thank you 5/5
By Del The Designer
I love this app it allows me to see and talk to my daughter. I’m miles away and sometimes a phone call is not enough.
So fun! 5/5
Love Marco Polo! So easy to connect with family who live far away! Thank you!!
Good video app, poor notification settings options 1/5
Great app but no options to manage notifications. Want to receive notifications when someone sends me a video but I don’t need to know every time someone I know is online....deleted the app until this is fixed.
Marco Polo Works Great For Our Fam 5/5
We love sending and receiving video messages from family members. We love playing them over and over again! Often videos from my phone are too large and can’t be sent. This solves that problem every time.
Asinine restrictions 1/5
The app would be better if not for absurd rules such as not being able to fully utilize the service for a month after starting even though you may be part of several fairly large groups.
And having to send a ridiculous amount of videos (over 50 according to the faq)
Bad app 1/5
Overall this app is just an off brand crappy Snapchat. Idk why anyone would use this over all the other apps out their. Do not get app.
The best for family!! 5/5
I love that it’s so easy for my parents to use to keep in touch with us and the grandkids!!! 5 stars!
By granny gran gran
My children are all over the country, this keep me connected with them all
Thanks Marco Polo
Needs to be updated 1/5
This corporation needs to update the app for iPhone X users my using experience is horrible the app doesn’t fit my screen type and app doesn’t work at all all my videos lag and I can not hear nothing …
First time ever using this app get to see friends and family members far away.
Very clear 5/5
By blacc kev
Wit video or the feeds
Enjoy it very much 5/5
Myself and my Fun Campers group use Marco Polo almost every day. It’s about nine of us and four of the nine are in the same city and the others are in other cities and it helps us to communicate and put our vacations and camping trips together so much more easier. It is a wonderful app and I thoroughly enjoyed it
Good App, Fun to Use, BUT... 4/5
By Paul Hewsonn
I usually use this on my iPad. Unfortunately, it is only available in Portrait mode. I would rate 5 stars if this could be made available with a Landscape option. Thank you!
Fun, but... 3/5
By Susie Hhh
You have to find your way around the app. Nothing is labeled. A little difficult at first.
More fun than the law should allow! 5/5
My Gramma passed away about 15 years ago. Every time my family and I use this app, we always comment on how much Gramma would have loved this. She always likes to have pictures of her grandkids talking on the phone.
With all of these wonderful forms of communications, she would have probably been the most ‘tech-iest’ in our family. Marco Polo would have been her favorite. This is amazing. It’s so easy, even my parents can use it.
My 7year old granddaughter leaves me messages all the time.
Thank you for the ability to reconnect with our extended family & military family members......clear to Japan! We are reconnecting with cousins and family we haven’t talked to or seen in 28 years.
