Marco Polo: Find Your Phone by Shouting MARCO!
by 618 users
If you've ever lost or misplaced your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch somewhere nearby but can't quite remember where, the Marco Polo app will help you quickly find your device with just your voice. Just shout out loud MARCO! and your hidden device will ring back POLO! so that you can find it.

*** NEW! iOS 8 Nearby Widget—now find misplaced devices right from your Notification Center. Just swipe down to reveal Notification Center and Marco Polo will automatically find any device around you! ***

#1 Paid Utility App in 80 countries! #1 Top Paid App Overall in 32 countries! Featured on: Popular Science, Cult of Mac, Gizmodo, CNET, TUAW, The Daily Dot, Business Insider, and many more!

The Marco Polo app runs silently in the background and never disturbs you until you need it. No more panic attacks or getting to a Mac to find your device—Marco Polo works with just your voice and completely offline (no Wi-Fi or cellular needed). The app will listen across multiple rooms, even multiple levels in your home, and will override silent mode so you can find your device no matter what. Simply launch the app, then shout MARCO! That’s it!

For even more fun try installing Marco Polo on multiple devices. You can distinguish each device by changing the input phrase, voice and custom response, so that each iOS device behaves differently.

Note: Marco Polo currently uses an acoustic model for North American accents. If you have a non North American accent it may be less responsive.

• Change the input phrase and shout anything you want
• Over 30 unique character voices to customize how your device sounds when it responds
• Control what your device says back with custom responses like: “I’m Over Here”, “Who's There?”, and “iPhone Reporting”, or enter your own phrase!
• New iOS 8 Nearby Widget; now find other devices with just a tap, right from Notification Center
• Works even if your device is in sleep or silent mode
• Push Notifications light up your screen making it easy to find your device in the dark
• Volume Boost maximizes your device’s volume level, even if you left the volume low
• Works with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

These limitations are imposed by iOS and are required for all apps that use the microphone:
• While Marco Polo is listening in the background your iOS device will show a red bar at the top of the screen.
• Some notifications and sounds will get silenced. Phone calls, calendar alerts, and clock alarms will continue to make sounds.

• Marco Polo does NOT require Wi-Fi or cellular. All voice processing is done on your device and is never sent or stored anywhere. Nothing ever gets saved. Nothing ever leaves your device.
• Nearby Widget requires iOS 8 and a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) compatible device. However devices running iOS 7 that are BLE compatible can still be discovered. Devices must be running Marco Polo.
