Do we need another messaging app in the Philippines?
Actually the answer to that answer is not a “Yes” or a “No”, since there’s no one messager app that’s widely used by us Pinoys, currently, there’s Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Yahoo and of course there’s still the old Text messages (SMS), that what must have prompted Naver Japan to come to the Philippines to launch and introduce the Line Messanging App to Pinoys this February 14, 2013 in Fort Bonifacio Global City.
LINE is a FREE proprietary instant messaging application for smartphones and PCs developed by Naver Japan. Currently have more than 100 million users in more than 231 countries, and was ranked as no.1 app in 41 App Store locations worldwide. In addition to sending text messages, with Line App you can exchange images, video, audio media messages and make free VoIP calls over Wifi or 3G connection. Unlike other messaging app, Line uses Stickers instead of empticons which clearly conveys the mood or emotion of the users.
Line is available to all major mobile OS; iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry and even connect your Line Account with your BBM account; and if ever you’re on your desktop Line got you covered as well, since you can download the Line Application for Windows/8 and Mac OSX.
We already got our invites for the Line App launch this February 14, 2013 and will post you updates about the event. For the meantime, you can visit Line website or download it on your device if you want to take it for a spin.
Without a one-size fits all messaging app dominating the Philippine Market, Line could easily grab the market and become the preferred messenger app of Filipinos specially for those who constantly communicating with their family and friends abroad.
