Marco Great-O 5/5
I just started using this app because of my daughters and I love it. I have an iPhone so I can FaceTime anytime but this app is just more fun! An entirely different dynamic!
Stinks at best! 1/5
Stinks at best!
Basically face time 1/5
You can only call your contacts
Love the app 5/5
I was introduced to Marco Polo by a coworker as a way to communicate while out on sick leave. It is a great app to use to communicate with friends and family who live far or near. The only disappointment that I do have is that I am an able to use the emoji’s that everyone else can use they do not appear for me. Otherwise I enjoy using the app and use it every day multiple times a day.
Great App 5/5
We love it.
The best! 5/5

Phillip and Josh are going out for a barbecue party! His cousin James and Evan are going to visit and hang over to a cookout with David, Ruth Etta, and Dennis to hang out and watch the big kickball show team!
Love it! 5/5
I’ve been confined at home recuperating from illness & surgery & have missed out on all my 16 grandchildren’s graduation & end of year activities. Marco Polo has kept me connected but more than that, it has inspired me to put on my makeup & a smile to send to my family. Thanks for this grandma friendly ap.
Love it 5/5
I very much enjoy this App. 😀
It’s so fun talking to my good buddy this way. We don’t get to hang out often but we at least get to send messages
Great app, but no emojis 3/5
Like the app. Just disappointed that I’m not able to send the emojis, like other Marco Polo users are allowed to do when watching a video.
Want more options 3/5
I’d like the opportunity to type a msg too.
Emoji bar 4/5
I don’t have the emoji bar like all my friends! I’m not sure why. I tried deleting the so and reinstalling it and that didn’t work. Other than that I like it!!! But if I had that emoji bar I’d love it!!!! Hellllppp!!!!
Great app 5/5
But can we get a mute button to silence someone for a day or weeks!!
Me and my whole family are enjoying Marco Polo very much. It’s so much fun
LOVE THIS APP but... 5/5
By Batline_4= musical.ly
Plz add more voice changers like super low super high and like Santa (if you can) and maybe face filters like Snapchat (sorry for saying “like” so much”
Fun Fun. Fun 5/5
What a great fast and convenient way to communicate with friends and family. This will be a lot of fun to do with my grandkids. Pass this on....lov’in it.
The worst app ever 1/5
By Nat. hicks
This app is horrible, every time it sends me a code I type it in and it says “sending too many codes please wait” so I waited for two minute and tried it again but it did the exact same thing
Love Keeping in Touch with Family and Friends 5/5
By Evan Umberger
We're all scattered across the world and sometimes a phone/video call doesn't match our schedules. We love using it with our kids when out of town and connecting with those we love when we have time.
Fun to use, but missing some features 3/5
The one thing I like about Marco Polo as a post to Snapchat is that you can go back and watch old ones that date months back, which is really fun to do when you have little kiddos. My biggest reason for taking away two stars is that I wish there was a way to delete a recording after you start in case you say something wrong or just want to change what you say. I have not figured out a way to do this and it drives me crazy sometimes. It would also be nice if you could type something and send it. Otherwise, my family and I have a lot of fun with this app.
Great app: could be better 5/5
By s. bruce
Overall this app is great. But I’d like to see time and date stamps on Marcos, and when I’m watching a Marco, I’d like to see how long it is (like an icon somewhere that says 5minutes and 38 seconds, for example) Also I’d like to see a timer counting off as I’m recording, which would help prevent rambling. People tend to ramble, and even though you can speed up the video, the faster it goes the more difficult it is to understand their speech.
I have not allowed the app access to my contacts, because it weirds me out that any app has that kind access to my business and personal contacts. I don’t know who Marco is, and what they will eventually do with my information, or what happens if Marco’s servers get hacked.
A lot of free apps seem to be giving you their apps for free in exchange for your personal information. I almost wish that it were required that app developers made that t
”transaction” transparent and explicit.
Also, all the videos on Marco are stored on their servers, and not on individual devices, and again, legally and ethically what can Marco do with those videos?
Love the expressions and fluidity of communication.
It’s pretty fun 4/5
I have nothing else to say but.... it’s a fun friend & family app. 🤗
One on One 5/5
By Ms. Marcia
I enjoy being able to send video’s to family and friends. It’s like sending a video email! Love it!
Love It But Be Vigilant About Misuse 5/5
Love this App. It’s fun & convenient. I have family and friends who live in many different time zones, so Factime and Skype is not always a good option. Group chats and the fact that the videos don’t disappear are also features that make Marco Polo a great App. Thanks to the creative team who created Marco Polo. I just have one request. Now that Marco Polo is getting more and more popular, please make sure the administrators of this App keep an eye out for any evidence of misuse. You know more than we do about all the creeps out there all too ready to take something fun and harmless and find a way to infiltrate the App for identity theft or other harmful purposes. As creators of the App, it’s up to you to be vigilant and keep an eye on things, especially if a user contacts you about something suspicious. Thanks for creating this App!
Best messaging app! 5/5
So fun to send videos to friends. Love that it doesn’t go away when you’re done!
By w gril
I totaly love this game
Love this! 5/5
Love using Marco Polo with friends and family as well as with my business. It is so easy to use!!!
Love, but needs enhancement 4/5
Love using this to connect with family that lives far away
SUGGESTION: add functionality to save/share a video. I hate to know that some of those cute videos of my baby boy will only ever live in the app! And I can share with only one of my family members, even if it's an especially memorable video.
Bad review 1/5
Snap chat is better
Would really like to selectively delete videos. Seems after a passage of time option not available?
Overall Love This App 5/5
Me and my friends have different phone brands, texting and FaceTiming gets kind of irritating. Some texts get mangled, you can’t FaceTime with everyone, etc. This app ended up being a great solution. This isn’t sponsored or anything, I have no obligation to right a good review. I used to use Tango to text my buddies without apple, but I was invited to this app and ended up liking it a lot better. It’s a lot faster. Tango used to crash on me moderately often. I never did figure out Skype, and this feels more casual anyway. There’s no ads, thank god. All in all I have no complaints. I use this app 24/7 actually, and prefer it to texting.
Stop trying to get me to share this app with everyone of my contacts!! It’s really frustrating! I love the app and it’s great for family updates but sharing this app with all my friends is not my top priority!
No phone numbers 5/5
By Melody (momsvlog80)
I wish I can use this app with people who don’t have my phone number. I don’t want to just give out my phone number to anybody. I love the app but that’s a problem.
Love Marco Polo 5/5
By Fly Lady #6
Great way to communicate with a group.
Marco Polo 3/5
By Meg Cogs
I enjoy using this app to keep in touch with friends. However there have been several times where messages in or out have been delayed by more than a day. It can be frustrating.
I can’t use it 1/5
By Maggie Mags Mags
So this app is probably good but I can’t use it because I don’t have a phone number my mom will not let me have service until I’m a certain age so that is why I thought this app would be good but there is no option for an email which is frustrating because the whole reason why I got this app was so I could survive without a phone number for another 6 months but oh well
Be careful, this app will message your contacts without your permission 1/5
It messaged EVERYONE on my contacts list pretending to be me and asking all my contacts to download the app. DO NOT INSTALL THIS VIRUS/BOT INTO YOUR PHONE
I like it because I can see my cousins and see what they are doing I can also watch and make videos for them 😜😘❤️😍😊
Better than FT 5/5
I love this app!! At first I was like what the heck is this?????? I have FT. Instead of texting the people I love I Marco Polo them. It’s fantastic🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠
This app is a scam! Minus 6 stars!!!! 1/5
By wary app man
A friend got this app and it automatically(!!!!) sent texts to her entire phone book- all her contacts - with a personal message "please install this app so I can send you a. Idea message!" When I went to get the app, it wanted all my info, which I was not willing to throw out to every app de jour. later, I learn that she didn't have any video to send me - her sister "sent" her the same text!! It is basically an info stealing virus. It may help share videos, but it's a lying info gathering virus, to start with. I give it NEGATIVE 6 STARS for criminal software!
Thank you 5/5
I’m very pleased to say that the Marco Polo team reached out to me and emailed me since my Marco Polo wouldn’t load. They got the app to work and it’s awesome! I had this rating at 1 star but I’ve changed it to 5 stars because the Marco Polo team has fixed it! Most app teams don’t even do anything when you need help or the app isn’t working. I just want to say thank you to the Marco Polo team!!
Stay at Home Mom Approved! 5/5
This app has helped this stay at home Mom keep her sanity! It allows me to talk to friends off and on all day so I don’t just feel stuck at home alone. I LOVE being a SAHM but it can get lonely. So it is so nice to be able to talk to someone basically face to face throughout my day.
My sister and I live only a few miles a part and yet we’d go weeks without talking to each other bc we were both too busy with our kids. This app has helped us communicate more than we have in years! And it’s so much better than just getting texts or Snapchat. I hate texting now! I’d much rather send someone a Marco Polo bc it’s so much easier and faster, and I can tell them exactly what I want on my own time. I love that we can have a conversation with each other whenever each of us has a chance. Our free time for a conversation doesn’t have to be at the exact time anymore! This app is amazing. My whole family uses it now, and we share a lot through a group chat. It has helped bring our entire family closer.
And it’s so much more personal than Snapchat. On Snapchat I’d only send quick little funny messages to friends or a cute video. But this is more for real conversations. And I love that it’s hands free so I can talk to friends while folding laundry!
Great or not so great 4/5
It is great cuz you can communicate with Samsung’s cuz Samsung’s don’t have FaceTime so you can actually see the person while it being like your texting them but it only got 4 stars because it’s a little glitchy and a little touchy touchy so you should get it you don’t mind very long loads and pauses in the middle of a chat or you pushing one button and your screen goes dark
Good concept but app fails 2/5
We use this for family but the screen always goes black and then I can only hear sound. I've reinstalled many times and changed wifi connection but it still acts up.
By Circus Trash Monster
The Marco Polo has brought our family closer. Thank you!
My way to say hey across the world 5/5
By Annette from Arizona
This app has been absolutely my link to family an friends. Now no excuse to let time steal quality family growth.
Marco Polo 5/5
Such a great way to stay in touch with my lovely family. Great job, guys. Thanks!
OPENS NOW! 4/5
When I downloaded the app, the first time, (iPhone 7plus) it wasn’t over WiFi. So I’m guessing the download wasn’t complete. So I deleted the app and started from scratch on WiFi. Works just fine. Advice: Make sure you’re using WiFi during the initial download.
