I gotta say that I am surprised at the negative reviews this app is getting I use it myself i own cat amino music amino tv & movie amino and food amino I haven't had a real problem with the apps myself yes I get you can talk to strangers but that's the point to make new friends if you are concerned about what your kids are using in the community's make an account yourself and see who knows you might have fun I love my Amino's This is a horrible app.
I don't think that this app is as bad as what the other parents are saying, I use this app myself and I love it.
There are some communities that children shouldn't be in, but I think it should be fine as long as you monitor what communities your kids are in from time to time.
Make sure they can recognize when someone they are speaking with is acting inappropriately.
Make extra sure that they know how to use the apps reporting and blocking features to disengage with users who are behaving badly.
I've heard stories of children being afraid to tell their parents about what they're dealing with because they don't want to get in trouble.
// One final warning- at the time of this writing, Amino Apps has recently introduced voice and video chat features.She feels that she NEEDS to be in this app and can't be with out it. Bullying, sexual content and the fact that you don't truly know the ages of the others you speak to in this app!! (Edit: I have added slashes between paragraphs, because the site does not support page breaks.After removing the app she finds ways to get back on secretly. Sorry about the wall of text, but I really believe the information I wrote is valuable.)// I see a lot of reviews of this app that seem very shocked and reactionary to me, and I would like to provide some clear, and hopefully helpful information.It's sad that I have to monitor my 10yr olds phone on a nightly basis because of apps like this one!!Entiching to young ones but the worst part is this: After several attempts at emailing the various addresses, I'm told they are refusing to delete a CHILD's profile without providing the CHILD's email FOR SECURITY PURPOSES..after the child has been interacting with adults although it's specified that it is NOT for children for obvious reasons.I do not feel that some of these communities are safe or appropriate for a young teens.
