TOKYO, 11 janvier 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NHN Japan, le propriétaire et l'exploitant de l'application « LINE » qui permet de passer des appels et d'utiliser un service de messagerie gratuitement, a annoncé le 11 janvier que son application officielle d'appareil photo « LINE camera » a été téléchargée plus de 20 millions* de fois, 10 mois seulement après son lancement. (*Les chiffres du téléchargement concernent les applications combinées sur iPhone et Android).
Cette application d'appareil photo facile a utiliser permet aux utilisateurs de modifier et de décorer facilement les photos prises avec leurs smartphone caméras et de partager leurs créations avec leurs amis ou des groupes auxquels ils sont connectés par l'intermédiaire de LINE ou autres services de réseautage social.
Le succès de LINE camera est en partie dû à une fonctionnalité originale qui permet aux utilisateurs de décorer leurs propres photos à l'aide des très prisés « Sticker Characters » de LINE. Le 9 mai, un peu moins d'un mois après le lancement de la version Android de LINE camera le 12 avril et de la version iPhone le 26 avril, les téléchargements franchissaient la barre des 5 millions, puis la barre des 10 millions le 7 août, soit 3 mois plus tard.
Fort de ce succès, LINE camera a continué d'ajouter de nouvelles fonctions d'édition pour le plus grand plaisir de ses utilisateurs. La cote de popularité de l'application n'a cessé de croître et a atteint la barre des 20 millions de téléchargement 10 mois seulement après son lancement.
Jusqu'à présent, l'application LINE camera s'est hissée à la première place de la catégorie « Apps gratuites » de l'App Store dans 14 pays, à la première place de la catégorie « Appareil photo » de l'App Store dans 27 pays et à la première place de la catégorie « Appareil photo » de Google Play dans 17 pays.
L'application LINE camera a atteint la première place de la catégorie « Apps gratuites » dans ces 14 pays et régions d'Asie : Japon, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, Thaïlande, Malaisie, Brunei, Singapour, Indonésie, Koweït, Qatar, Arabie Saoudite, Vietnam et Népal. NHN a également constaté l'utilisation croissante de l'application LINE camera en Espagne, où elle s'est également hissée à la première place de la catégorie « Appareil photo » de l'App Store/Google Play.
De nombreuses autres applications d'appareil photo offrant des filtres et autres effets pourraient exister. Toutefois, l'application LINE camera a lutté contre cela en proposant une vaste gamme de fonctions telles que les filtres, les découpages en forme de cœur et la possibilité de créer des messages écrits à la main – toutes ces fonctionnalités permettent une finition semblable au phénomène japonais de décoration de photo, « Purikura ». Mais le secret du succès de LINE camera ne s'arrête pas là. L'interface conviviale et la possibilité pour les utilisateurs de décorer leurs propres photos à l'aide des très prisés « Sticker Characters » et de partager ces photos en utilisant les services de réseautage social, parmi lesquels LINE, Twitter, Facebook, mixi, Sina Weibo, Renren, me2day, Cyworld etc., ont contribué à la popularité de LINE camera à travers le monde.
La société a également déclaré qu'elle continuera à développer et améliorer les fonctionnalités de LINE camera et des autres services connexes dans le but d'enrichir et d'améliorer la communication entre les utilisateurs LINE.

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

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.
