Its response can be temperamental at times as well. Sometimes, it will randomly shout "Polo!" at me without my preemptive cry for help, typically when I raise my voice to respond to someone else. I've also found that it responds more accurately to harsh commands and voice inflection--a demanding "MARCO!" versus a more inquisitive "Marco?" makes all the difference.
Despite its quirks, Marco Polo is a helpful little app that actually feels more like a game. Though you might feel a little silly shouting at your phone for help, the app typically responds almost instantly. Who knew losing your iPhone could actually be kind of fun?
Marco Polo is available now in the App Store for $1.
