What is the LINE Login Platform?

The LINE Login Platform lets developers who create mobile apps and web applications offer a way for users to log into their apps using their LINE account. There are already many mobile and web apps out on the market that utilize the login features of the LINE Login Platform. In this article, we will take a closer look at Popcorn Buzz and LINE STORE to see exactly how they use this powerful platform.

Popcorn Buzz: LINE Login Platform for Mobile Apps

Popcorn Buzz is a free app for Android and iOS which provides a group calling service that lets users talk to up to 200 people at the same time. Developers usually use a screen like the one shown below when integrating the login feature into a mobile app like Popcorn Buzz. The login screen displays a “Log in with LINE” button that calls the login feature of the LINE Login Platform the moment the user taps it. If the user has the LINE app installed on their device, it automatically takes them to a second screen where they are asked to confirm that they want to log in with LINE. The login process is over before the user has a chance to blink. The superior login functionality offered by the LINE Login Platform leads to a better overall user experience on many apps the world over. 1
