Thanks for taking the poll from our website. In 2 days, our more than 120 visitors voted for their favorite apps between LINE and WhatsApp. Now obviously WhatsApp loses in the battle. LINE still wins many hearts even though it is at this moment pulled from Apple App Store. This App has resulted in 3 million downloads and has been ery popular among asian countries. The reason they are pulled from App store seems to be some false media report triggering people to question their security and privacy. Media like TVB in Hong Kong, reported that LINE even charged your carrier phone bill. After this incident from Hong Kong. the App is almost immediately removed from App Store. If that is proven to be a false report, we urge Apple to quickly provide us with explanation and recover LINE for their users to download. We know that some of the iPhone customers are buying their iPhone for LINE right now. So there no point keepnig LINE “offline” for such a long time.
As a review of LINE, we would like to conclude LINE has comprehensive function, incoporating all necessary elements from all kinds of social networking Apps. It is not limited by your phone number, nor requiring a working cell phone to use. It is also avaliable cross platform even on iPad and iPod Touch. If our guess is right, LINE will also become avaliable on Black Berry or Nokia Symbian some time later. Let’s hope that LINE will get back to App Store soon. Many of our visitors is desperately looking forward to downloading it.
WhatsApp supporters, do you feel unfair? defend your apps by speaking out or pressing WhatsApp on the poll!
In the meantime we, myphonedaily.com, have sent emails to enquire NAVER Japan and App Store regarding the re-launch of LINE App. Keep in touch!
Update: Naver LINE App is back online now! see our latest post.
