Plus de 20 millions de téléchargements pour l'application « LINE camera » de NHN Japan

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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...

Connected devices are changing the way we go about our everyday life, from wearables to driverless cars, to smart grids and entire industries revolutionizing business opportunities through smart objects, capable of two-way communication. But what happens when objects are given an IP-address, and we rely on that connection, sometimes with our lives? How do we secure those vast data infrastructures and safe-keep the privacy of sensitive information? This session will outline how each and every connected device can uphold a core root of trust via a unique cryptographic signature – a “bir...
