Amino Apps is a social network focused on communities, with an application available for Android and iPhone (iOS), in addition to the web version for the desktop. Unlike services like Facebook, in which the user connects simultaneously to different types of contacts, Amino Apps aggregates people around specific groups that have a common interest, such as a series, a musical style or a game.
