There are rumours that after many smart inventions lately by Xiaomi, the Chinese giant in phone making is working…
Now if you are looking for downloading LINE, the messaging app that catches popularity these days, you might be too late. This App is thought to be a challenger of WhatsApp. Apple App Store just pulled LINE out from the store suddenly. You can’t even search it on App Store right now.
NAVER Japan, the developer of the LIN
E app announced in their official page that their
App couldn’t be downloaded via App store 9AM Japan TIme. They said they are trying their best to recover and fight for restoration in the Japan Store. The announcement also claim that those who downloaded LINE before can continue using it.
The Media quickly enquire Apple and NAVER for the reasons, yet none of them give feedback. Many think that the Apple may pull LINE out because they receive complaints such as infringement of privacy…etc. Of coure, we still have to wait for official explanation from Apple. One thing we need to pay attention is there are some apps suspected to be spreading pornographic information being pulled out by Apple.
LINE got 3 millions downloads in just few months, which is very impressive. However, there are some false media reports from TVB Hong Kong that LINE app users are prone to leaking their private information or other security issues. Though LINE actively reiterated they have not done so, people are still doubtful about that.
As what we have mentioned before in our post regarding WhatsApp VS LINE, we should be careful not to expose our personal information such as password, credit card info,address… etc on these messaging apps. Although those apps developer have their responsibility to keep your secret, you are still obliged to keep everything private. These messaging platforms are not intended to transmit confidential information!
