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 styles ...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
