    LINE


    this is an interesting app. Seems to be offering messaging, free calls and even interesting interactions via mobile and PC...
    too bad no webos version.

    Line has become the mainstream mobile chat app in Taiwan. Is there any way I can use it on my Pre3? Or I'm afraid I have to switch to Android phones because I need Line at work.

    The problem is that these apps pop up everywhere and are often only popular in certain countries. Having this on webOS would be great of course but someone would have to develop it.

    Greater issue is that those services is that the protocol is secret and has to be reverse engineered. That is exhaustive and prone to failure.

    I had never heard of this app myself until someone mentioned it to me. I hope all this whatsapp alternatives won't become too popular because whatsapp is the only thing working on OS, fingers crossed FB won't force us to look for alternatives and keep it (almost) free and fun to play with for a long time.

    Hm.. the good thing about some of these alternatives (Telegram) is that the protocol is open and easy to implement... that is the issue with whatsapp: They don't want us, they have a closed protocol, you need to reverse engeneer the protocol and they can silently change the protocol and make your app fail again and you'll have to start over.

    If some app with an open protocol would gain a lot of traction maintaining a webOS client for that would be much easier... that's why I recommend telegram to all my friends, right now.
