LINE Corporation launched the family app LINE Selfie Sticker which is available for iPhones to add a refreshingly creative and colorful twist for taking selfies.
The LINE Selfie Sticker can be used to make original stickers out of self-portraits, or “selfies” in just three simple steps. First, users take a picture of their own face, and then they choose their favorite character from over 130 illustrations covering 17 exciting themes, including LINE characters, astronauts, skateboarders, wedding gowns, cheerleaders, monsters, and more. Then, all users have to do is fit the illustration to the original picture and tap it when they are done. In just three taps, users have their own original stickers they can send to friends.
Users can adjust specific aspects of the stickers by changing the face size or angle, enlarging or shrinking text, or adding speech balloons with their own messages, creating unique stickers that can be used in any situation.
Stickers created within the LINE Selfie Sticker app can be sent directly through chats in LINE, posted to the Timeline, or be edited even further in LINE camera. They can also be shared across a wide variety of social networking services besides LINE, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
“The Philippines is home to two of the world’s most selfie-taking cities, Makati and Pasig, making it the perfect place to roll-out this new app,” says Greg Kim, head of LINE Philippines. “This is definitely another breakthrough for LINE and will revolutionize the selfie-taking culture in the Philippines and around the globe.Furthermore, the new app will make communicating with friends and loved ones more fun and exciting!”
LINE was named as Global Growth Company in 2014 by World Economic Forum, it will continue to deliver fresh features and functions to a growing online community of over 450 million users worldwide.
LINE Selfie Sticker app is initially open to iPhone users only and Android version will be available in the near future.
