LINE sees tenfold growth in user numbers
Dubai, February 25, 2014
LINE, one of the world’s leading mobile platform with 350 million users, has seen a record-breaking inflow of daily new users, as many as 10 times in some regions, since February 23.
The recent surge is because of LINE’s unparalleled communication services that are the most safe and reliable, in the midst of recent system trouble experienced by other service providers, said a senior official.
"We are excited to see LINE’s speedy growth in the Middle East markets, where daily usage of smartphones has become an indispensable part of lives for many young people. The advanced speed of development and expansion of Middle East smartphone markets makes the countries that much more significant to LINE," remarked Minho Goh, the managing director of Mena and Turkey at LINE Plus Corporation.
"In the near future, we will be partnering with local brands and personalities to provide locally-tailored services and features for our users in these regions," said Goh.
On February 23, LINE shined as an app that experienced the significant growth rate on United Arab Emirates’ iOS Top Charts (Overall – free apps) by jumping 9 spots in just one day, stated the official.
Many users have already chosen LINE as the ideal solution that offers an advanced system support and wide range of features that offer free messaging, voice and video calling, as well as interactive elements such as Stickers, Timeline and Official Accounts, under the ongoing industrial changes in the mobile messaging market, said Goh.
"LINE can be enjoyed across multiple platforms including iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Nokia and Windows Phone and can be accessed on smartphones, tablets and PCs. LINE also provides an entire mobile ecosystem, enabling users to customize their mobile experiences by downloading additional LINE apps such as more than 50 different LINE games , LINE PLAY, LINE Camera and LINE Card," said the official.-TradeArabia News Service
