Can anyone just see me on the map?
No. Only at the times and places when you want it.
Is Amigos only meant for spontaneous contact?
Yes. With Amigos we want to make every situation more pleasant. Usually spontaneous contact is the perfect for this. You can find people in your area who are currently into the same thing as you. And you can spontaneously host an activity.
Can you schedule an activity through Amigos?
Yes. This can be done spontaneously on the same day or even a week or month ahead!
How can I plan an activity via Amigos?
You can do this by clicking the ‘plus button’ which is shown on the map. That way other amigos are able to see what you have planned and they can decide to join.
How does the (mandatory) contribution for activities with host fee work?
You can ask other amigos for a small contribution. Think of a contribution for decoration, cleaning and the time you put into organizing. By asking a contribution (even if it’s only € 1) you can be almost sure that the amigos who joined will actually show up. Afterwards, you will receive the contributions on your bank account within (72 hours). We first check whether the activity was legit.Tap here for further Help and Info.
How am I able to see if there is something to do in my neighborhood?
On the map you can see what other amigos are up for. These are the purple person icons on the card. The activities created by amigos are shown as orange location pins on the map. If you click on this you can join the moment.
Can I bring someone along if I have joined another amigo?
Of course! The only thing you must do is to invite this person. This can be done by going to the activity and clicking: ‘Invite amigos.’ He or she has to register through the link you sent them.
Can I chat with someone before joining their activity?
Yes, if this amigo allows it. This amigo has a chat icon. For example, you can agree on a time and location with each other or ask if you can bring something to the activity.
What’s the difference between a person icon and an orange location pin?
A person icon is an amigo who is up for something right now. For example a talk. In that case a text cloud will show up on the map. An orange location pin means an amigo has planned an activity or that an activity is already taking place.
What does hosted, joined and your favorite in my profile mean?
‘Hosted’ shows the number of times you've organized something, ‘joined’ shows how often you've gone to an activity, and ‘favorited’ shows the number of amigos who added you to their favorites list.
How do I know if someone is trustworthy?
We do everything we can to make sure only true amigos are using the app. You can help us, by giving every amigo a recommendation or report them after every activity you have been to. This way we can easily block unwanted ‘amigos.’
What is the protocol for a report?
If you have an Amigos account, you can report a profile or activity that does not follow the Amigos Community Guidelines. A report is anonymous. If you would still like to get in touch with the Amigos team to explain the reporting in more detail, you can do so via WhatsApp. The account you're reporting won't see who reported it.
