You may have enjoyed WhatsApp in your smartphone, and that’s wonderful; but have you ever heard of LINE?
A former student of mine who lives in Japan, of whom I have recently asked to install WhatsApp so that we can chat without pay (iMessage between Japan and outside of Japan is not reliable) alerted me of this wildly popular social networking and chatting App that became the Top App in Japan for 2012. It’s called LINE.
I downloaded and installed it, used it, and WOW, much more fun than WhatsApp. It’s free, and guess why I am even writing about this App in this dachshund-focused blog? Because the App allows you to change the wallpaper to any particular chat, and thus far, two of the wallpapers have dachshunds on them! Here are the screenshots of the wallpapers; click the images for a larger view.
Also, you can send, receive, collect, and buy “Stickers.” So what are these stickers? They work just like Emoticons and Emojis. Go try it out, and have fun; most importantly, get those dachshund wallpapers up and running!
To download and install LINE, click HERE.
[UPDATE: 30 January 2013]
I just found out that LINE is also available to be used through your computer (desktop, laptop, what-not). Click HERE to download the computer version, and you will be asked for which platform you download (Mac OS X, Windows and Windows 8.)
