This is just another Whatsapp or GroupMe app. Well yes it is but, it has more going for it. For a start it’s available on all platforms, Android, iOS, Mac, BlackBerry and Windows including Windows 8 for PC.  I’ve been using GroupMe for a little while now but I like LINE even better.

So what does it offer that’s different to the other messages apps?
Free Calls as well as messages for a start and that includes extra add-ons like Line Camera and Line Card. Add to this the free emoticons downloaded straight from the app itself is great.

LINE is a new communication app which allows you to make FREE voice calls and send FREE messages whenever and wherever you are, 24 hours a day!
I installed the Android app on my HTC ONE, and app on Windows 8 through the Windows 8 app store and finally the Windows 7 exe direct from LINE.
