    Does anyone use Line (app)?

    I see that there are many now- Whatsapp is the other big one, but Line seems to be huge here in SE Asia yet virtually unheard of in America. Does anyone else use Line? I use and it's pretty convenient. Free chats and calls between users, also games and crap like that. I'm wondering if international calls between users are free- I'll report back about that.

    I use line for international calls no problem, Whatsapp is for grandpas. I don't use it near as much as my wife and her friends/family... They use Line almost exclusively.

    Ok Fancypants, thanks for the intelligent contribution. Given your useless statement, what do you use?

    But not Windows phones (calls don't work...).

    I've been using it internationally for the last 10 months; calls, pics, video and audio messages, etc. Works well.

    Line to Line calls are free(You just use bandwidth) and the clarity is amazing.Much better than whatsapp IMO

    I agree with the NZer. I've had problems with Whatsapp; nowhere near as stable as Line.

    Skype tends to fuk up my system, always pissing around in the background, a nasty bit of s/w imho...

    My wife wants to use it but the only version in the App store needs iOS 4.3.x and her phone can't run higher than 4.2.1

    I did some half-hearted googling for an older version to install but didn't have any luck. Anybody know where an old version can be found?

    Use "Line" with nieces & nephews and the occasional Thai girl.

    "Whatsapps" parents, relatives, friends, clients and work colleagues.

    "Line" users tend to use those silly stickers to communicate rather than use actual words. Therefore Neanderthal users, expressions made thru use of cartoon characters.
