What is your most favourite chatting application? The rapid development in technology has made a lot of changes in our lifestyle. We used to do text messaging through short message service (SMS) which is prepaid. The more you send messages, the more your balance gets reduced. If it runs out, you have to top it up.
It will be different when you text using an application. The innovation and development of smartphone allow users to have the more flexible way to send messages. The application just requires the data plan, just like accessing other internet services. If you run out of data, you just need to find the nearest free Wi-Fi connection.
Line – one of world’s popular messages applications
If you live in Asia, you must be familiar with the Line messaging app. Why are you not? Once being launched in Japan in 2011, it has been able to reach about 100 million users. The number got doubles only within 6 months. It was even rated as the biggest social network in 2013 in Japan and attracted more users mostly from Asia, including Taiwan and Thailand.
Line app is also as useful as other similar services like Facebook Messengers and WhatsApp. It offers stickers, games and animated characters. Those cool features make the app look more attractive. Not only for individual texting purposes, Line is also compatible for businesses. If you have used this app on your smartphone you must also have known with the original four characters, i.e. Brown, Cony, James and Moon. Some new characters have been added as well to create the more attractive chatting background on Line application. Even the users can also create their own stickers.
