The following description comes from the Google Play Store description of the app:It's time to make keeping in touch fun and personal! Use Marco Polo to communicate with people who matter the most. Marco Polo is a video walkie talkie with memory. Your friend can start chatting with you right away or they can reply later when they have time.
You can also look and feel awesome with doodles, make your friends laugh with doodles or funny voices. Marco Polo is the perfect way to communicate!

KEEP IN TOUCH ON THE GO

** Say “good night” to your bf with the night vision filter
** Send your friends vids of your awesome vacation
** “Stretch out” a conversation if you’re busy or use it like a walkie-talkie for non-stop fun
** Stay connected wherever you are: in the subway, waiting in line, at a concert…

Bye-bye phone tag and awkward voicemails...and hello Marco Polo!
