LINE took top rank for publishers by monthly revenue outside of games in both iOS and Google Play in February. There was also good news for LINE’s future, as its flagship messaging app made gains in the download ranks on both stores. Of particular note, most of these gains were made outside Japan in the primary markets for major rivals. On iOS, LINE made considerable gains in China, becoming the top ranked Social Networking app by daily downloads at the end of the month. On Google Play, LINE gained in the rankings in South Korea. The importance of an expanding user base can be seen in the February Games Index, where LINE made considerable gains in Thailand through its associated game offerings.
