How to Install Line Step-By-Step (Updated 2016)

9 Oct

Line is a kind of messenger system, like Skype only it’s based out of South Korea.  It’s kind of a weird cross between Twitter, Tumblr, and Skype really, you’ll find pictures, chat message, phone services, and you can join in on live chats as well. Anyway, a bunch of people have been looking for directions on installation, so here you go!

GETTING “LINE” DOWNLOADED INITIALLY

You can try just searching for “Line” in your smartphone app store or by visiting their website (https://line.me/en/download). On your smartphone, it’s usually the first or second result and is a green button that says “Line.”  You can now set Line up on just a computer. You do NOT need to have a smartphone account to set it up. 

*Note that the website link has changed from my old posting. Their new address is https://line.me/en/download.

PLEASE NOTE! IF YOU DOWNLOAD LINE ON YOUR COMPUTER, THEN PUTTING IT ON YOUR PHONE WILL DELETE YOUR COMPUTER ACCOUNT AND ALL ITS MESSAGES. THIS IS NOT TRUE THE OTHER WAY. HOWEVER, TO LOG INTO YOUR COMPUTER AFTER YOU PUT IT ON YOUR PHONE, YOU MUST ENTER A VERIFICATION # ON YOUR PHONE. SO BEST TO PICK ONE MACHINE FOR LINE AND THEN STICK WITH IT. DON’T GO BACK AND FORTH!

To Download It on Your Computer:

  1. Visit the website: https://line.me/en/download

line-1

2. Choose your PC system – MAC OS, Windows or Windows 8/10. I don’t use Apple, so I tried it with both the Windows and Windows 8/10 systems.  

Windows opens up a download file. Download it, open it when it’s finished and follow the instructions for installing it. 

line-2

Windows 8/10 opens up the Windows store. You install it through there, and it’ll open up to the “Sign-In” or “Sign-Up” page.

Both systems then go through the same Sign-Up Process:

line-5

3. Add your Phone Number. Hit “Next.” They will call you or text you quickly with a  a four number confirmation code. Put it in the new box and hit “Next.”

4. Now they will ask you to add a Password. Hit “Next.”

5. Give them your email address.  Go on. They will email you with another confirmation code to that email. Go to your email and get the code. Put it in the box on the “Sign-Up” Page.

6. Voila! You should have your Line account started on your computer 🙂 It looks like this now:

line-6

To Download It on Your Phone:

  1. Visit the website: https://line.me/en/download. Or go to your phone’s store and search for “Line.” It should be a green box with a speech bubble and line inside:

This is what the app looks like

line-1

2. Download the app and install it on your phone. 

3. The “Sign-Up” system will be the same as it was with your computer.  

4. Put in your Phone Number. They’ll call you with a confirmation code.

5. Put in a password. 

6. Put in your Email Address. They’ll email you with another confirmation code.

7.  It’s ready to go!!

 

 

In Praise of Those who Butt in Line

15 Jan

Why yes, older woman in the Orange shirt and Brown coat at the Coralville Mall (Coralville, IA), I do appreciate your going from fifth in line to first by deliberately bypassing everyone else.  Totally understandable!  And really, you accomplished so much with that move.  I mean, you saved yourself a 15 minute wait by merely increasing everyone else’s by five minutes each.  Pbhft, Hardly any cost whatsoever. In fact, you accomplished so much more than just enraging an entire crowd of people. 

You’ve shown the children with their mom at the front of the line the importance of shoving others out of your way when you want something.  Naturally, all those lessons about respecting your elders came in handy here; they really got to see an example of how they should live their lives when they’re your age. Of course, they’ll get in trouble at school when they copy your example, and, well, none of their friends are going to appreciate that. And well, their example to the other kids will lead to a new scene in 15 years where we have five people fighting and shoving over who goes first instead of a line at all. But that’s nothing! You showed them the best way to get what they want when they want it.  It’ll definitely help them in life.

Because really, your actions today were a shining way of encouraging and further developing the modern culture of “me, Me, ME!”  Nothing is more self-centered or self-absorbed than the person who thinks their time, attention, needs, and desires are more important than any one else’s. And that’s something we should all be contributing to today.  Be proud, you have just helped lead the way to a society that focuses even more on themselves all the time.  Of course, you’ll be perfectly charming when that teenager who was second in line here later decides to stop his car right behind yours for 20 minutes while waiting for a pick-up regardless of the fact that you were backing out.  I mean, he’s just following your example so you can hardly complain.  Nor will you say anything when the two young women who were third push themselves in front of you at the grocery store because they have a movie to catch. I mean, of course if your needs are so important, so are theirs.  I’m not really sure how you’ll handle it when the guy who was fourth gets in front of you to fill up his drinks, but I’m guessing it’ll be totally fine.  

On yet an even grander scale, you showed us an amazing sign of what humankind can do when it sets a goal.  I mean, the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids which symbolize the power of our ability to utilize math. The ancient Romans built an excellent legal system that the world still holds up as exemplary today. The ancient Chinese developed Buddhism, which embodies love, hope, and the potential of human spirit.  But for modern Americans, we’ve got you–and all your other line-butter friends– to destroy the entire concept of working together, respecting others, valuing everyone’s needs equally, indeed most of what a civil society is built on. You even managed to unify a Latino woman, African-American man, and two Caucasian women in their disgust with your behavior. Yep, you’re a real benefit to our society.  Bravo!

How to Install Line (A step-by-step guide)

18 Apr

This is the old website. UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS 2016 ARE AVAILABLE HERE!

Line is a kind of messenger system, like Skype only it’s not based out of the U.S.  It’s kind of a weird cross between Twitter, Tumblr, and Skype really, you’ll find pictures, chat message, phone services, and you can join in on live chats as well. Anyway, a bunch of people have been looking for directions on installation, so here you go!

GETTING “LINE” DOWNLOADED INITIALLY

You can try just searching for “Line” in your smartphone app store.  It usually brings it up as the first or second result.  It’s a green button that says “Line.”  Just remember, you have to set it up on your smartphone/I-Pod before you can put it on your computer.  Line requires it.

Line Official Website

  1. Go to the official Line website at line.naver.jp/en/

Line Download

  • Click theGreen “Download” button.  You will have to set it up on your ipod/iphone/smart phone before you can install it on the computer.  I put it on my Ipod, so I went through the Iphone process.  I’m assuming it is similar for other mobiles.

LIne

  • Click the Green button for your mobile choice.  It will take you to I-Tunes for Apple products and GooglePlay for Android products, ditto for the other app programs.  From now on I’ll approach it from the I-Tunes version.

Line

  • Once it locates “Line by NAVER Japan Corporation,” click the Blue “View in I-Tunes.”

Line

  • Off you go to I-tunes where you download it like any other app and transfer it over onto your I-Pod. I’ll upload a post soon on how to do this if you don’t know how. Open the Program on your Mobile Device.
This is what the app looks like

  1. Now, you will have to enter in an email address and password (Keep these, you’ll need them to install it on your computer).  Then go through the other set up processes, this will include your profile fic, username, terms & conditions, and verification.  The Phone number should  be something you’ll get text messages on since they send you a passcode for human verification purposes.  Enter in the number from the text message when it asks.  Once it is installed, you’re good to go here.
  2. To install it on your computer go back to the official Line website at line.naver.jp/en/
  3. Click the Green “Download” button and pick your computer.  Download the file, enter your email address and password when it asks, and you are set!

BLACKBERRY DIRECTIONS

I haven’t tried this on a Blackberry, but I’ve been told by trusted sources that this is the process (It’s also the advised directions from LINE).

1. Tap More > Add Friends > Official to open the Official Accounts list.

2. Tap the Official Account you wish to add to your Friends list, and tap Add.

These directions can also be found here
