Cosplay Amino

So I have no clue if anyone has already made a thread about this app, but I thought I'd just make a thread.

Cosplay Amino is an app available for both Android and iPhone and it's basically an app that's striving to be a community for cosplayers.

I personally think it's a really cool app. It's still pretty small compared to other media where cosplay is popular (tumblr, instagram), but I think it's an awesome app for someone to have. I definitely look forward to seeing it grow and hope it takes off in the cosplay community.

So what does everyone else think of the app? Do you love it? Hate it? Haven't used it yet? And if you have signed up for thr app, what's your username?

I've heard it's what the cool kids are moving to, but I don't have a device so I can't use it. What does the app do? What's it for?

I saw a youtuber make a video about it and I'm skeptical about it. Have you tried it at all? It could be promising but the lack of a dedicated website alongside the app is off putting for me.

I'm also wondering what it actually does. It is a chat client, a project planner, a coupon finder, or what?

I looked on the app's page, but it's really vague on how exactly you do the sharing/discussing/debating/discovering/etc. It sounds like a cosplay-based Facebook.

I got it and made an account to see what it's like..It's very....Lame..To say the least..
You CAN'T verify the account on mobile, which is ridiculous..It forced me to activate my account on a web browser, which..I mean..It's a MOBILE APP..Shouldn't the verification at lest be mobile friendly? Makes no sense..

I already got 3 people following me..All 3 of which have zero information on their pages. No bio, only a picture (you are not allowed to make a profile without putting in a profile picture WHILE creating the account).

I looked a little at the forum thing and it's a HUGE mess. It's got one forum for each thing (like one construction forum, one prop forum, and so on) and in each, there are TONS of threads. I don't know if they bump or not, but there's no way to sort anything at all. It's all just one big jumbled mess that they titled "forum"

I also noticed the "blogging" part of it..Which is kinda neat in it's own way..But if you have both a coscom account and a tumblr, you already have both things this app gives you, and it's pointless to get one of those too.

Nope. I've seen several Canadians (including myself), and some from European countries I haven't delved very deep into the world of cosplay Animo yet, so I'm not sure if there are others.
