A new version of LINE designed exclusively for the iPad was released today!

As with the PC version, all you need to do is enter the email address and password registered to your smartphone LINE account to load your friends list and use your purchased stickers on your iPad.

We recommend the iPad version for the following types of people:
  • Those who want to check LINE while they browse the web or watch videos from home.
  • Those who want to contact friends while using their iPad for work at a cafe without having to take out their smartphones.
  • Those who want to share photos and videos taken on their iPads with friends right away.
