/PRNewswire/ -- NHN Japan Corporation announced on
June 12
the release of the Windows (R) Phone version of LINE, its free-calling
and free-messaging app. Using "Metro UI" featuring an intuitive design allowing
for greater operability, NHN Japan is strengthening the cross-platform
integration of its services.

LINE is a smartphone app which allows users to enjoy free calls and messages
to one another, both nationally and internationally, regardless of which mobile
network provider they are using. It is currently used in over 230 countries with
the total number of active users exceeding 40 million worldwide (18 million in
Japan
).
This new version makes use of the unique Windows (R) Phone user-interface
system, Metro UI, which increases user friendliness and promotes stress-free
communication by arranging text for increased clarity, as well as introducing
sideways menu scrolling for ease of access, a distinctive characteristic of
Windows (R) Phone. Although the release of this version will feature the all-
important messaging function, it will not include the free-calling function. NHN
Japan plans to add this function in the near future.
The Windows (R) Phone version is seen as a welcome addition to the current
versions of LINE which are available on iPhone, Android, feature-phones and
PCs as well as a browser version for smart-tablets. NHN Japan hopes to
increase the strength of its mobile messenger service by making it available
across all platforms and devices.
