in February 6th, Line released their 2013 fourth quarter results, single quarter revenue of $120 million, the annual revenue reached $338 million, the Reuters said this evaluation, Line has become the highest income in 2013 non gaming applications. According to App Annie data, the current Line has more than 340 million registered users, is the fastest growing Store 2013 iOS App and Google Play non game applications in App.
intrigued me with this comment: "the highest paid application in non gaming applications" looks like Line’s assessment of his business performance over the past year.
