Naver announced that their Line app that went viral earlier this month is finally back online and available for download on iTunes. You can download it from the image link. The reason for being pulled from the appstore was due to lack of terms and conditions for English consumers. This has been updated and t/c is now available in English. Download it now!
Below is the formal announcement made by Naver on the app.
LINE’s iPhone application through the App Store has been resumed in October 31, 1:00 P.M. (EST).
Users have been unable to download LINE from Apple’s App Store since October 18, 7:00 P.M. (EST) due to Apple’s warning stating that ‘LINE does not provide a sufficient user approval process in its Service Terms and Condition of Use’. Since then updates have been made, including the addition of an English version of LINE’s Terms and Condition of Use, so that the existing user approval process is more noticeable. The updates have been reviewed and approved by the App Store, and downloads of LINE have been resumed.
We at Naver Japan deeply apologize for inconveniences LINE users experienced during the past couple of days.
Users from around the world expressed their worries about the situation and major media outlets in Southeast Asia and the Middle East dealt about LINE’s temporarily suspended downloads as one its top stories. We at Naver Japan were astonished and encouraged by the attention LINE received from across the globe.LINE has been downloaded more than three million times over the four month period since its launch, and is becoming a truly global mobile messenger which is used in more than 108 countries around the world. Naver Japan will exhort our efforts to expand mobile communication globally by developing more convenient services in the future.
We at Naver Japan ask for your continuous support.
The Naver Japan staff
