Marco Polo App helps you find your misplaced phone by Shouting
Marco Polo app, created by designer and developer Matt Wiechec based in Toronto, can help you find your misplaced smartphone by allowing your device to respond when you shout, giving you clues to its location.
When using the Marco Polo app, users can find their hidden device by shouting “Marco!” loudly. It will respond “Polo!,” so they know where to look for it.
Marco Polo is an alternative to Find My iPhone, which gives you the general location of your phone, but doesn’t really tell you exactly where your phone is. You can use Find My iPhone to get the general location of your phone; you know, just to make sure your phone is actually in the location you think it is. You could then use Marco Polo to pinpoint exactly where your phone is, whether it be at your house, at the park, or even at the grocery store.
You can also customize the settings and type in a word other than “Marco” — mine has already been customized to respond to an expletive because I call my phone names whenever I lose it. The app comes with 30 voice options, and the choice to create your own custom keyword for your phone to respond to. This is especially handy if you have several Apple gadgets, as it eliminates confusion over which device you want to find.
The ‘Marco Polo’ app is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. and can be downloaded from the Apple Store for $0.99.
