Marco Friend Locator iPhone App

Marco (2010)

Since Bikenik, Uncommon Projects has become increasingly interested in local, urban, pedestrian mapping. We’ve decided to bootstrap the development of two mobile products - Marco and Steps - with the goal of refining the last 100 yards of wayfinding.

Marco is a free iPhone app that puts you and a friend on a map so you can find each other fast. Marco is the easiest way to Locate someone. It uses SMS to connect two smartphones to a shared map.


  • Recipient doesn’t need the app!
  • As simple as SMS
  • Private and “opt-in”
  • No accounts or social networking
  • Compatible with iPhone, Android and more

Marco wouldn’t have happened without the dedicated work of a talented team of folks.
