National Book Award nominee Milton Rugoff writes a page-turning biography of Marco Polo, the amazing adventurer whose journey changed people’s perceptions of the globe and lit the method to the Renaissance. After Polo’s book was published, well-read Europeans could no longer believe that they alone led the is book taught me a lot: what life was like in the Venice of Polo’s youth; the essential role of his father, Niccolò, and uncle, Maffeo, in his adventures; and the intelligence and, contrary to famous belief, humaneness of Kublai Khan.A sad aspect of the story is that it took years for Polo’s stories to be accepted. In his own time, Venetians remained the end of Polo’s life, Rugoff writes, “the priest leaned over him and asked whether he wanted to take back some of his far-fetched tales of what he had seen and done on his travels. Marco answered quietly, ‘I did not tell half of what I saw, for I knew I would not be believed.’”Recommended for all.
Milton Rugoff’s masterful book paints a unbelievable picture of the travels and travails of Marco Polo, the thirteenth-century Venetian sailor who captivated a globe with his book that retold his 25-year journey living the life of king in the Asian goff describes Polo’s stories of globe of wonder and riches during his years with the Mongolian ruler, Kublai Kahn. At the time, few believed Polo, particularly his tales about black liquid that burned, cities with 12,000 bridges, and lands rich with gold and rco Polo is a fascinating work filled with info and perspective pertinent to today’s world. It is an adventure well worth undertaking.
I recommend this book to anyone who watched the Netflix series of the same name and wants to separate fiction from e book - not too long, not too short - was an informative, entertaining read about the Venetian explorer Marco Polo. And what a story it is - the young adventurer finds himself in the court of the wealthiest, most strong man in the world, who, in turn, becomes his mentor and dispatches him on missions across the Mongol empire. He returns home, writes a book about his travels, and wins, as the author notes, “fame, respect, and a put in history.”An easy, unforgettable read.
Milton Rugoff, who was nominated for a National Book Award, is a fine writer, and he captures both the spirit of Marco Polo’s times and the personality of the explorer himself. He also brings to life Kublai Khan (a fascinating, multi-dimensional man). I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a amazing history.
I am presently traveling in Italy and thought it might be timely to read about an Italian son. Small did I realize the true impact of Marco Polo's tales on the direction the globe would take by enhancing the imaginations of all who read about his travels and experiences.
A very descriptive book about the travels of Marco Polo, his father and uncle to China. It describes the wonderful wealth and power of China's emperors in amazing detail, and tries to separate fact from fiction in Marco's book. All in all, I found it an informative and simple to read book.
There is something really wrong with the app. I placed a delivery order. The application selected the shop closest to me, the one I always order from 1 mile away. I obtain a call an hour later from a marcos delivery driver 40 miles from me saying he can't search my house. They said they would credit my card in 5-7 business days but I don't wish to take the possibility and put another order that will go to a marcos 40 miles away again. Even the confirmation email had the wrong shop on it.
I don't like when businesses falsely advertise specials... I was going to order the 2 one-topping medium pizzas for $6.99 each, but apparently that unique "doesn't exist." Then why do you have it featured on the home page of the app? I decided not to order from them. 🙄
the green fly in menu from the left was super annoying. I would be scrolling the page and it would fly in unannounced. every time I moved the page down (even in the middle of ordering) it would fly in. fix this glitch for a better review. otherwise once we signed in it was rather simple to see our older orders and reorder. now we wait & hopefully they obtain our order correct. 🤣
in the time it took for the application to add an item to my cart i ordered online. it also kept pulling up the menu anytime i was scrolling as well as logging me out when going from one page to the next. this application needs A LOT of work. not a amazing experience
This application created me wish to cry and throw my phone within 10 mins of trying to use it. The green menu kept sliding begin over and over on the left side interrupting everything I was trying to do. I had to hold typing things over and over again so it took three times just to obtain my pizza order and then it wouldn't take my coupon so finally my husband had to do everything that I had just done on his laptop and finished everything in 5 seconds. I am uninstalling this application because it's useless.
Very satisfied their pizza tastes a lot better than their application runs. What's up with the green side menu constantly popping out at you, am I right? Could stand a lot of improvements beyond that. Hard to navigate when customizing a pizza, froze up the first go around and feels clunky
Horrible User Interface. Does not integrate with existing Google wallet. Hard to navigate due to UI design and side menu. I would expect better at this point. Hope you didn't pay a lot to have this built because you still need to fix the application usability.
Completely unusable. Logged in with my email address that I use for the site. When I test to check out it tells me my phone number is already in use by a customer with my email address. My account. It won't allow you continue without the phone number so I can't check out because my phone number is already in use by the same acc I'm logged into...
The application is very glitchy. I've tried to order pizza but when I do the application menu randomly opens when i least expect it causing me to click a button that then makes me have to reset my order from the beginning. Very frustrating. I am glad, however, that ya'll finally got an application and I am very much looking forward to when ya'll obtain the glitches sorted out. I will modernize my rating when that happens.
Green navigation bar on the left side keeps popping up when I'm trying to scroll up or down the page. It also kept adding pizzas to my order when this would happen that I didn't click on. Lastly it let's you put orders for future days but won't allow you put an order for the same day at a future time slot until after you open. I'll stick to calling to put my orders until you fix your app.
I'm not getting the push notifications on time. I literally received 25 notifications at once all from over the month just randomly latest night, Including a lock down alert from latest week. Not sure why as I have the settings set to be on. I have a Samsung Galaxy S8.
In the previous and recent modernize (0.249) the white line at the bottom of the screen indicating the length of the Polo is no longer moves at a steady rate. Instead it now jumps/skips in segments. The polo will end before the white line gets to the far right of the screen, which used to allow you know it ended or was about to end. Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this. I have done the normal shut down of the program, reset the phone, and updated the phone. Very irritating, please help.
Amazing app! I've been using it for years. My family loves it. We have a family chat to hold us up to date with life. I love that the video saves to view year later as well as the constant additions such as the in video "video comment" & the image Polo. A lot of the negative feedback posted in reviews have a lot to do with cellular provider, data speed & connectivity... less to with the app. I've had 3 phones with no issues. My family has no issues. Not good reception is not the fault of the application
My brother introduced me to this application and it's been very helpful for us to catch up when it's convenient. I've found one inconvenience though. If its a long video the mini reaction (circles) only let a few seconds to speak and without any kind of time stamp to tag it's relevancy. I can't figure out when or what they are responding to in the original video. Can it be placed on the time bar at the bottom with say an arrow or something to tag it off?
Thank you for this amazing app! Having some technical difficulties with my Galaxy Buds and it seems to be isolated to only your app; my Bluetooth connection will flicker off, wait a few seconds, then flicker back on while watching videos. I don't know what you can do about this, but I am certain it has only ever happened from your app, none others. Thank you! 😊
I love this app. It helps me talk to those I wish to with ease. I can save, bookmark or set reminders on messages. Beautiful cool. Have 1 MAJOR complaint. The reactions. It tells you when u obtain a reaction, but not if you've watched then or not. It's gets annoying looking for it when you obtain alot! I use this to group polo like 6 ppl for family AND work. So its necessary I see them all. I CANT TELL WHICH REACTIONS HAVE AND HAVE NOT BEEN WATCHED! All they need is to color it differently or SOMETHING
It doesn't notify me when I obtain fresh messages even though I have all notifications turned on, which is really annoying. The only time I obtain a notification is when I begin the app, which is pointless! UPDATE: Problem fixed thanks to support! Now my only feedback would be that it really eats your battery life. Oh and the text while recording feature is REALLY cumbersome, the keyboard covers what you're typing.
Amazing app. I use it a lot to talk to my best mate in Minnesota. If I could create one change, I would add small "stamps" that could note subjects of the conversation. Keywords like "work","family", "vacation", etc. to videos while you watch them so that when you answer you could remember what was said to you without having to rewatch the video. Currently we use a paper notebook, but if that was an option, this application would be perfect!
So far I'm enjoying it. I'm fresh to it but it has allowed me to videotape a notice and send it at that moment and it allows the receiver, mates and family, to access the notice whenever they're able. So I love that aspect since my family is all spread out and not in the same state. because it's a video application oh, I'm also able to sign to my interpreter mates and those who use visual communication.
I absolutely love this app. I have had no problems with it, my siblings and I use it to hold in touch, send updates across time zones, and hold each other much more involved in our lives than just playing phone mark all the time! Especially amazing because it is very compatible between iPhone and Google phone, a issue we have always encountered with sending regular videos.
Absolutely love this app. It's amazing to have video notice group chats going and see the faces of people I miss. It's convenient, respond messages when you wish to, but still obtain the full video chat experience. My sister's and I have discovered the helium voice 😂😂😂😍😍😍 and our lives are infinitely better for it!
I am thrilled that I can see loved ones and hear them. It's so amazing for me who tends to forget a lot of things so now as soon as I think of whatever, I can ask or tell and wait for a response when they obtain to it. How come I can't obtain the application to download to my laptop? The only one it got wason my phone, which is great, however, I could use it here on my laptop for the evenings when MS get's worse and the screen here would create it easier for me at night. Thank you
This application is really amazing for the busy person who wants to connect with other busy people. You can send messages when you have time, and they can answer when they have time. It's like texting, but with videos, and better because you can say it and present more easily than you can type it, especially if it's long! My only suggestion is to let for some kind of screen sharing. I would love to be able to share pictures of a past happening I'm talking about, or the text messages of a conversation.
I used to use this application to communicate with my significant other, and it worked fine in the past. But now for some reason after updating it does not work with my Samsung Galaxy s9. Keeps giving me a error. If the issue gets resolved I will change my review and rating but this is a small annoying.
Amazing app! My favorite app. It is the easiest method for me to feel social without anxiety. I thought the video quality wasn't very amazing the first few years I had it, but I finally got a fresh phone and the video quality is method better now so I know it wasn't the app. Only poor thing is it drains battery faster then you can charge 😆 that's ok though
I really like the application and I think this method of sending messages to mates is fantastic. What I would like to see, however, is better video quality and the option to download videos to use elsewhere. Also the option to skip 10 seconds in videos I keep is not working.
I love the application but withheld one star because I think there are two critical features that will dramatically improve this. Adding a homescreen widget, and a dark mode would be greatly appreciated. @joyacommunications the widget could function by having a fast access to conversations, favorites, or fast answer feature
Fantastic! It's so fun and simple to hold in contact with people. The Marco Polo squad is also awesome and responsive, I emailed them with a few suggestions and I received a private notice back within a day. I've even been using it with a mate for Korean study, I can replay the videos and explanations as much as I want, and the time difference doesn't obtain in the method of being able to video chat!
This has helped with communication so much more than just texting. I can take my time to watch other polos, and take the time to do my response without the stress of facetime. The application works just like it should. I haven't noticed any issues at all.
Honestly, I love this app. It's helped me reconnect easier with a mate of mine who is deaf and moved away. We obviously can't talk on the phone and we don't always have time at the same time to video chat. I've been suggesting this application like crazy to everyone I know!
Have had it for over a year. Use it daily. Amazing to hold in contact with family far away, it keeps us in each other's easy and everyday lives. Also amazing for fast messages to people close buy for those times when it's too long to text but you don't wish to call.
Overall it's a beautiful amazing application but I never know when I have a fresh message. The icon used to stay at the top of my home screen until I checked it but now I have to remember to go to the application and look for messages. I have all notifications turned on so I'm not sure why that changed.
I love marco polo. It has brought my wife and I closer when were not around each other. And it helps let me to see and visit my 3 children when I'm not there not home. I love it. Thank you for making this awsome app. Everyone should have it and have fun it as much as il do.
It's okay. I like staying in touch with people and seeing live videos of family. It makes it simple to communicate things in true time and share in experiences when I can't be there. But the quality is terrible! I'd expect more from such an otherwise unbelievable application
Thank you Marco Polo for reading my mind. I have family in various parts of the globe and due to hour differences is really hard to communicate even with live chats apps, but with you, a fresh era just started. I been wanting this for years. So amazing full.
Its a Drag that if a Name doesn't pop up with the Phone #, there is no method to add or edit the Name of your contacts to change so, you have to remember some people only by their Phone #. Thats kinda lame. Other than that for now We like the app.
UPDATE!!!!!! I GET NOTIFICATIONS NOW!!! This is a amazing method to hold in touch with family and mates that are busy. You create your video and they can watch it when they have time and when they do one you can watch it when you have time. Best part is the video is always there so you can watch it as a lot of times as you wish. I would give 5 stars but, I don't keep an notification when someone is sending me a video.
Doesn't work with Samsung S10e. This application zooms in method to far on the front facing camera - it is impossible to take video where your face fits in the video. Edit: customer help worked with me and got a fix so that it works on my phone! Thanks!
When my daughter first invited me I really didn't wish to use it. I downloaded it anyways and once I started using it I actually really liked it. Now we use it all the time. Thanks for giving us a method to communicate where we can see and hear each other even though we are 350 miles apart.
