  • Excellent Program!

    I’m a retired teacher and a mom, and I have not found a better program than Marco Polo. My tenant’s preschool age daughter asks for it by name. We tried a lot of free apps, to see what we liked. I wouldn’t give any of them more than one star (at best). Marco Polo is excellent for preschool through primary grades. It is an flexible, highly visual program that can be adapted to an individual’s needs. It can be used for introducing or reviewing both verbal and pre-reading/reading skills leading to mastery of foundational skills (patterns/memory/phonics/vocabulary). It introduces children to a wide variety of non fiction topics, thus supporting comprehension. It is a high interest program that appeals to children. And, like all excellent programs, the teacher in me suggests that parents use it together with their children, because one thing always leads to another! 🙂
  • Just purchase for one month!

    My son truly enjoyed the content. Not as much pushed out as I would have liked but it entertained him and taught him a few things. However, now that I have disconnected from the service we cannot access anything that I paid for over the 10+ month subscription I had. Bottom line.... purchase for one month out of the year disconnect and wait another few months to subscribe again.

    Please advise on how to cancel free trial. Every time I try to access my account with you in order to cancel, I get message that “can’t connect to App Store.” Just want to cancel BEFORE you bill me.

    Here’s the thing. I’m not anti-vaccine/vaccination, but I also don’t think promoting it belongs in a kids educational app. It’s a slippery slope. Sticking to things like physics, zoology, climate, etc should be the focus here. Otherwise, it really comes across as pushing an agenda that is already pushed all over the place. What’s next? Kids need melatonin supplements at bedtime? Kids have to eat dairy for strong bones? Fluoride needed for dental health? I don’t actually care what people think about any of those topics, but you’re blurring the line between educating on applied/natural science vs industrial science. Market those things to adults who can make up their own minds about such things, but not to kids... that’s called propaganda.

  • Good content but keeps crashing

    The crashing issues is Specific to an older iPad, but we don’t have this problem with any other apps. I’m going to keep trying to make it work, but it is a real attention breaker for the kid.
  • Left waiting too long

    I’m very very disappointed by this app. My 4 year old son loves it and has learned a lot from it but it probably only loads 20% if the time we try playing. It’s a bummer, let’s him down and is a waste of money.
  • Great learning tool!
