Matt Wiechec announced today that his first independent app, Marco Polo: Find Your Phone by Shouting MARCO!, is now available on the App Store. Marco Polo helps you quickly find your misplaced iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch by simply shouting out loud “MARCO!” Just shout MARCO! and your hidden device will ring back POLO! so that you can find it. The Marco Polo app runs silently in the background and never disturbs you until you need it. No more frantic searching or getting to a Mac to use Find My iPhone — 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.
You can install Marco Polo on multiple devices, distinguishing each by changing the input phrase that triggers a POLO, for example from “MARCO” to “APPLESEED”. Each device will
only respond to its unique phrase. Or simply change the phrase to something fun. The app also features over 30 quality POLO voice recordings to customize how your phone sounds
when it responds.
“Marco Polo is inspired by the popular swimming pool game by the same name and is a fun way to find your misplaced phone,” said Matt. “In those moments where we have all lost our
phones to the sofa cushions, or left them on the coffee table, or in the bathroom; we now have a fun way to find them again. It’s like playing tag with your phone, just walk around
shouting MARCO! and your phone will ring back POLO! in another room.
