    Annoying unread number

    by Masayuki

    No matter what you do, you can't remove the unread message number on the tile or lock screen notification.

    Does well, but suffers from bugs. Line for WP8 has come a long way in the past year or so. Sending a message use to be a hassle. Finding people used to be difficult and only audio calls were supported. Now, it supports video calls, better quality audio, and doesn't crash every five minutes. The timeline is neat and all, but just use facebook if you're going to be heavily social. Not all is peachy. It still suffers from the "Network Unstable" but that pops up and can keep you from getting messages. Thankfully, it has gone from possible days to maybe an hour or two. Upon opening a chat, sometimes new messages will take a while to load on the device. Overall, its a great service to use and more wieldy than Skype is for text communication. Main communication method with my friends in Eastern Asia where Line is very popular.

    Always removing my messages

    by Bijak Riyandi

    Whenever I restart my phone with LINE in the background, that means I have to say goodbye to all my messages on the phone. Thanks, LINE.

    Updated - Still a good version, but with issues

    by Jeff

    The UI is much more tight and crisp, and the desktop version is in sync. Much more pleasant to use. Hard to describe just how popular Line is across countries such as Taiwan and Japan. Update - recently this app becomes "pending" for no explained reason. As if it's waiting for an update. Have to uninstall and reinstall each time, which is now a couple times per week. This wipes out all messages. Getting very annoying, so I've dropped it a star. Update 8/30/16 - The "pending" bug is getting extremely annoying, rendering the app unusable at random times. It just now happened while entering a comment. What's going on? Also, unable to maintain a video chat for longer than just about 1:11 before dropping. Sometimes at 1:12, 1:10, 1:13 etc. This is with domestic and international calls, with an android client on the other end.
