Sending free stickers? 1/5
Where's the sense in sending someone free stickers?! I'll make it 5 stars if you let me send my friend stickers I pay for, otherwise I'll leave it at 1 star because it's bull crap. Just saying
New UI !!! 1/5
By Ashkan 181
line need new UI and must will change ...
line have not night mode & black theme is not good
Good but 3/5
Out of no where peoples voice goes muffle
Encryption done right 5/5
LINE has the most usable end to end encryption of all messaging apps, with cross device messaging implemented properly and securely. Oh and it does a lot of other things, but I think this is just awesome.
Message previews not working in low power mode. 1/5
By Broken Renege
I am constantly getting messages that only say that I have received a new message rather than showing a preview of the message, even with the setting enabled to show previews. This seems to be caused by low power mode, which i am using pretty frequently. All of my line notifications in the Notification Center now seem to disappear when I open the app. The new timeline update is unattractive and makes it more difficult to distinguish individual posts.
Worst update 1/5
No longer has chat notifications!!!!!
Bad privacy: Uses your phone number to suggest friends 1/5
By Nori Xarxet
For those that value their privacy and identities online, this is NOT the app to use. If you are worried about privacy issues with Facebook, then you will run away from LINE because privacy issues are worse than with Facebook.
If you're ok with LINE using your personal cell number as an identifier, and thus showing up on suggested friends list of your friends, relatives, co-workers, etc., then you'll enjoy the app. But you will not be anonymous using this app if you register with your cell number.
When setting up LINE, it will ask you to register using either a cell number or Facebook account. Most people will enter in their cell number - it's faster. LINE will then ask you if you'll allow LINE to access your contacts list.
You can answer "no". However, on the other end, relatives/friends using LINE (and who elected to have LINE access their contacts), will see you on their "suggested friends" list. It doesn't matter what nickname you chose to use in LINE - if your phone number exists in their contact list, they will know it's you (extended family, unwanted friends, co-workers, bosses, paparazzi, etc.). There are no options to prevent you (name and picture) showing up on their recommended friends list. There is only an option to accept or decline their friend request. Bye bye anonymity.
Trying to change the phone number to a virtual service like Google Voice will not work because SMS verification is used, and those virtual phone services do not support that.
This app is otherwise great for texting and calling, over the internet. Most useful for international calls.
However, the practice of using your phone number to find new friends, without your permission, is invasion of privacy. As opposed to email addresses, it is hard to provide an alternate, "anonymous" cell number if one wants to have an anonymous presence. LINE does not explicitly warn you that your personal number will be used in this way.
Although texting and other features are fine, these privacy issues (worse than Facebook) are a deal breaker. In this era of identity theft, using phone numbers to match people is not acceptable.
Stopped working 1/5
I guess this app tried to update, but instead it just stopped working. I can't uninstall it, I can't update it, I can't do anything. It's just stuck there.
If you have a apple device like I do and you have a friend that doesn't have one. You guys can't FaceTime this fixed the problem. The stickers are also great. 100% recommend!
Needs to offer better privacy options and fix stickers 1/5
By Island Life
Improved privacy would keep me with this app -- as it is now, I'm planning to switch to Signal in the near future.
Overall, Line has become less stable with time. The latest update still hasn't fixed the problems with the Daily Life and Cherry Coco stickers. For goodness sake, you've issued four updates and still haven't fixed the stickers!!! 🙄
Give us an option to turn off the annoying auto suggestions for un-purchased stickers!
New Update is Terrible 1/5
By Hyper Penguin
The backgrounds they added to stickers in notes is just awful. I don't know who thought it was a good idea. Makes stickers just look awkward and out of place now, and they looked just fine before. Please change it back!
Stop notifications for new stickers, etc. 1/5
I'll give five stars if you stop notifying me every time there is a new sticker.
WANT GUNDAM WARS GAME FOR U.S. LINE USERS 1/5
Learned from a friend LINE has a GUNDAM Game App and wanted to join him and play BUT, SADLY IT'S ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE ASIAN APPLE STORE MARKET AND NOT THE U.S. APPLE STORE MARKET FOR LINE USER IN THAT REGION OF THE WORLD?! Whoever @ LINE corporate reading this review should fix this problem as it limits their business popularity and profit increase for their company. DO YOU NOT THINK AMERICAN LINE USERS NOT LIKE GUNDAM OR THINGS LIKE ANIME & MANGA YOUR MISTAKEN AND SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR BOTH BEING IGNORANT AND AFRAID OF TRYING PEOPLE OF LINE. 😢😡
My old smartphone is broken 4/5
By Hi, I'm Justin
I can't open my iPhone.
Why copy Instagram style? 1/5
Too much cosmetic changes :(
I love LINE but I wish they would make the iwatch app more useful. Can't send bought stickers, can't check old messages or chats. It takes forever to load unread messages. When a new message pops up while viewing an unread msg, both messages disappear and you can't check it anymore. There's no way for you to send a message, only if you receive a new message.
As far as the phone app, I wish there were ways to categorize individual stickers or add tags to individual stickers.
Everything is perfect, i do like this application, one thing that i wish to have is that line has gifs
kill my storage 2/5
too much cookies u made. always make my storage memory limit.
My favorite 5/5
Extremely sad the don't have certain games in the USA version any longer. However LINE is great for everything else....
Connection Problems 2/5
I would love to be able to give this more, but I can't. Lately, the quality of my calls have been shady at best. I get unstable connection and get disconnected every 5 minutes no matter what internet I am using.
Game deleted 1/5
This is the worst app in history! I played Disney TsumTsum after a year of playing I lost my game because I switched devices. I payed money for this game and for customer service to tell me that I can't get my account back is insane! How do you sign up for an account be connected to Facebook and still tell you your email is not registered? What a scam!
About note pin 4/5
Please add note pined function for chat room and group chat. That will be easy for find the note.
Bad Update 1/5
By Marisa E
This new update for the app has removed the in-Line app notifications for Line associated games and it's not a smart choice. Bring back in-line notifications!!!! Found another bad things about this update adding or removing friends from line takes a long time (not sure how long) to have that change affect games.
subpar. So subpar
If you want a gamer chat go to discord 3/5
By Bruh deez nuts
First off discord has way more features (such as a music box), it's not just a regular texting app like fb messenger or even dare I say it line you can send memes through it send links without having to leave the app or copy paste it and you can even have a bit spam a friend of you want.
So if you want a gamers chat go to discord but if you want just a texting app this is a safe bet
Bring back chat notifications for Tsum Tsum hearts! 1/5
I'm really bummed that the chat notifications feature got removed for the Tsum Tsum game. I only got Line so I could play that game and now I can't tell who should or shouldn't be on my friends list because I can't keep track of who is sending hearts and who isn't. Please bring this feature back!
Loved using Line to communicate to my friend. NOW nothing! So disappointed! Please explain to us why you made this terrible decision.
not happy 1/5
latest update messed with my notifications. i dont receive notifications anymore if i've received new messages. the only way i can see my new messages is if/when i open the app.
Poor app 1/5
I just don't understand this app's registering purpose. I registered with my cellphone . Didn't know that I need to add a email to it. Used 1year .well. Just simple chat with friends. Now . I changed a phone because I dropped the old phone into water,can't use anymore.
I got the new phone. Try to get back to my line account. It says I need to email. I didn't register with me email. So I have to loose all the friends list because I don't have a email. What is the logical?
Sorry. I have to quit using this . Because I lost all my friends list. I can't login. I don't have customer phone number I can call. Even fill a inquire form. They need your registered email. I DONT HAVE A REGISTERED EMAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Perfect for texting. 5/5
I use this app for its original purpose which is to text, call and chat with friends. I don't know about the "tsum tsum" game everyone is complaining about. Is that part of line? Or it's own app? If it is it's own app why are you rating line 1 star due to tsum tsum app not working? Anyway, this app is perfect for instant messaging. Texts are sent and received quickly. I really like the stickers and it's more fun to use than the iPhone messaging app. I recommend it to anyone that wants an alternative way to instant message.
Utter crap. Invalid phone #?! 1/5
I can't even sign up as it's telling me my phone number is invalid. I assure you, it's not as I'm getting plenty of text messages from a guy I'm trying to avoid. I despise FB, so no, I'm not doing that either. It's BS that you can't easily sign up & use. I was trying to join a group of vocalists, but so much for that. Thanks for a download I'm now going to turn around & delete. So over Facebook & any app that involves 'coins.' 🙄
Poor notifications 1/5
Why on earth did this app turn off notifications when people need it to add old friends they have removed by accident or not. I hide and Remove people but I am getting hearts via Tsum Tsum game but I cannot tell which one it's from. Please fix this notification issue. For some reason, Japan's Tsum Tsum version has notifications working just fine. Please turn on. Thanks. Hope anyone will read and help all out.
Needs to Be More Customized for the iPad 3/5
By Ollie C.
I love being able to use line on my iPad but the experience has never been as good as on my phone. These last few updates have been so nice because finally I can do basic things like search sent files and video chat with more than one person. But personally, I would love to see themes and the ability to run in split screen. A notification system that actually works would also be great but even the iPhone version doesn't have that so I won't get my hopes up just yet. Please keep polishing the iPad app to make it as good as the desktop and mobile OS versions!
Waste of space 1/5
I can't even access Line. Once I send my phone number it says to wait for a verification code. Two weeks later I'm still waiting for it.
No more game notifications, wth, Line???? Bring them back!!
Notifications don't work properly 3/5
Recently my friends and I have noticed that our Line apps do not alert us efficiently when we get messages. Often we will send the other a text through LINE and unless the receiver doesn't open the app, they never receive any indication that they have been sent a message. I was super happy about the implementation of gifs but recently all gifs have stopped autoplaying and I have to physically hit the play button everytime someone sends me a gif. Lastly, I'd like the ability to add captions to photos sent in chats. Could that be something added for future updates ?please and thank you. I've noticed a lot of complaints for the recent updates and while I'm not as upset as others, I definitely think Line could do with a bit more finetuning.
Terrible update 1/5
The update is wreaking havoc with my game experience. I cannot add friends because I've had to turn off notifications due to the fact that the change was draining my batteries. Please change it back!!!
Freezes all the time 1/5
Can't add a persons name by phone number. It gives me error saying " try too many times". What the heck. Why is there a restriction to search a persons name? This is sh*tty feature.
Poorly thought out update 2/5
I was forced to download and use this social media app to save my Disney Tsum Tsum game and to add friends in the game. The app itself has had numerous glitches and service problems in the year and a half that I have been using it. At one point it crashed and I had to uninstall and reinstall the app to get it to open again, only to find I'd lost all of my chat history. Timeline comments are selectively appearing, some users can see them, but not everyone, which may include the person who wrote the initial post. Now some users believe they are being ignored, when in fact the person simply can't respond because they never saw the comment. The newest update (26 June 2017) no longer receives heart sent message notifications from the Tsum Tsum game, making it impossible to see who is actively sending. This update is concurrent with a game update that integrated Facebook.
While I wasn't thrilled with having two social media apps, I found I prefer several features of the Line app over the offerings of Facebook. I feel my identity is more secure when adding people I haven't met in person as my full name, location, employer, or schools are not displayed as public information. My timeline does not contain ads or sponsored content, nor is there any sidebar clutter, filled with content I am generally not interested in seeing. The chat interface is super easy to use, and the simple display allows me to switch between chats and timeline in the same app. (Facebook requires 2 since the creation of Messenger.) Themes and the ability to set a background make for a more personalized experience. Translators can be added as friends and can be used to communicate in multiple languages simultaneously. These great features have kept me using this app, but will be overshadowed by the inability to utilize the functions that were available and are necessary to fully enjoy the Tsum Tsum game experience.
Please restore full communication between the Line app and the Disney Tsum Tsum game. If this does not happen, I may chose to simplify and condense my social media presence in favor of Facebook, which is more established and more reliable. Many of my Line friends have expressed similar sentiments. The Line app has grown on us, but will be made redundant without this feature.
Notifications 😡😡😡 1/5
This update has negatively impacted the way many people play TsumTsum. We want it back the way it was before
HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE,HORRIBLE 1/5
Latest update blows! Can't see notifications from other players, so why continue using an app that doesn't allow me to interact with my fellow players? Thought that was the purpose of LINE: connecting people...
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS APP
Wish I could put zero stars for this update 1/5
Terrible terrible update!!! Why would Line remove the game notifications from the app? The only reason I added the app was in order to connect to other players of the games, and now after buying all kinds of stickers and themes, you've removed notifications? This is a terrible decision for your users. Please add the functionality back and give users the OPTION to turn off game notifications rather than just removing them completely. Otherwise, I think many users will be and should be deleting this app.
Does not care about user base 1/5
Stopped notifications from tsum, no detailed update why, when complained to company. They basically replied with a "deal with it" "we will let the respective people know" as in yeah high not gonna do anything!
No longer receiving game notifications! 1/5
This last update has disabled my game notifications (tsum tsum) in LINE! I love using LINE to meet new players and make new friends. Without game notifications, I can no longer see if new friends have added me and they can't see my heart sends! The social aspect is what makes the game, and LINE so addictive!
Latest update 1/5
This latest update is AWEFUL! Bring back the game notifications. It's the only way I can play. Now I'm thinking all that money I spent on both games and this app was a waste. I will have to stop playing and using this app!
Worst update ever 1/5
I loved using line as it was connected to TsumTsum. My friends and I would always use it to communicate with one another while playing the game. Now line isn't communicating with TsumTsum. Terrible way to break apart a community
No notification 1/5
I don't know why Line turned off notification from Disney's Tsum Tsum game but if they don't fix it real soon, we will all quit using the Line app and you will lose millions of dollars you earn from selling stickers to Tsum Tsum players
Recent app update horrible 1/5
Do not like getting push notifications for tsum tsum. Clutters my notifications. Liked it when it was all contained in chat feeds. Boo!!!
Terrible Update - Please Fix ASAP!!!! 1/5
Game (Tsum Tsum) notifications are now coming in as push notifications instead of as chat messages. Not acceptable. Can't see in app who sent what and when. PLEASE CHANGE BACK ASAP!!!!
Notifications Disaster! 1/5
Line, you've really mucked up notifications! You've ruined my game & communication experience, as well as wreaking havoc on all my devices! We've been patient with idiosyncrasies; we tough out glitches, but this is just too much. Please return notifications to their previous format.
