„LINE camera" von NHN Japan schon mehr als 20 Millionen Mal heruntergeladen

TOKIO, 11. Januar 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NHN Japan, Eigentümer und Betreiber der kostenlosen Telefon- und Messaging-App „LINE", gab am 11. Januar bekannt, dass die offizielle Kamera-App des Unternehmens „LINE camera" in den gerade einmal zehn Monaten seit Einführung des Dienstes mehr als 20 Millionen* Mal heruntergeladen wurde. (*Die Zahl der Downloads beinhaltet die Apps für iPhone und Android.)

Mit dieser unkomplizierten Kamera-App können Benutzer die Fotos, die sie mit der Kamera ihres Smartphones aufgenommen haben, bearbeiten und gestalten, und die fertigen Kreationen anschließend mit ihren Freunden bei LINE oder in verschiedenen anderen sozialen Netzwerken teilen.

Mitverantwortlich für den Erfolg von LINE camera ist eine originelle Funktion, mit der die Benutzer ihre eigenen Fotos mit den beliebten Stickerfiguren von LINE verzieren können. Die LINE camera wurde am 12. April für Android und am 26. April für das iPhone veröffentlicht. Nach etwa einem Monat, am 9. Mai, lag die Zahl der Downloads bereits bei mehr als 5 Millionen, drei Monate später, am 7. August, wurde auch die 10-Millionen-Marke überschritten.

Auch danach wurde LINE camera noch verbessert und es wurden, sehr zur Freude der Benutzer, neue Bearbeitungsfunktionen hinzugefügt. Die App erfreute sich auch weiterhin steigender Beliebtheit und überschritt bereits zehn Monate nach Einführung des Dienstes die Zahl von 20 Millionen Downloads.

LINE camera belegt außerdem derzeit in den App Stores in 14 Ländern den ersten Platz in der Kategorie kostenloser Apps und in 27 Ländern in der Kamerakategorie, ebenso wie den ersten Platz in der Kamerakategorie der Google Play Stores in 17 Ländern.

Die LINE camera erreichte in den folgenden 14 Ländern und Regionen in Asien Platz 1 in der Kategorie kostenloser Apps: Japan, Taiwan, Hongkong, Macau, Thailand, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapur, Indonesien, Kuwait, Katar, Saudi Arabien, Vietnam und Nepal. NHN gab außerdem an, dass die LINE camera zunehmend auch in Spanien verwendet wird, wo sie ebenfalls Platz 1 in der Kamerakategorie von App Store/Google Play belegte.

Es gibt sicherlich noch eine ganze Reihe weiterer Kamera-Apps, die Filter und andere Effekte verwenden. Die LINE camera hebt sich jedoch dadurch ab, dass sie zusätzlich noch eine Vielzahl weiterer Funktionen anbietet, z. B. Filter, Herzchen-Symbole zum Verstreuen und die Möglichkeit, handschriftliche Nachrichten einzufügen – alles zusammen erzeugt einen Gesamteindruck, der an „Purikura", eine in Japan beliebte Art der Fotobearbeitung, erinnert. Damit ist das Geheimnis des Erfolges der LINE camera aber noch immer nicht aufgedeckt. Die benutzerfreundliche Benutzeroberfläche und die den Benutzern zur Verfügung stehende Option, ihre Fotos mit den beliebten Stickerfiguren von LINE zu verzieren, sowie die Möglichkeit, die Fotos bei zahlreichen sozialen Netzwerken, z. B. LINE, Twitter, Facebook, mixi, Sina Weibo, Renren, me2day, Cyworld usw. einzustellen, haben ebenfalls dazu beigetragen, dass die LINE camera weltweit so beliebt werden konnte.

NHN gibt an, dass das Unternehmen die für LINE camera und andere Dienste im Zusammenhang mit LINE verfügbaren Funktionen auch in Zukunft laufend erweitern und verbessern möchte, um die Kommunikation der LINE-Benutzer untereinander noch weiter zu fördern.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
