„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.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
