They have just been released and seem to be quite popular - the Mirai Suenaga LINE stickers ^o^
For those of you who are not familiar with the communication tool LINE - check out this post to find out more.
As promised at AFAID, the Mirai Suenaga LINE stickers are now available - for free.
But there is a catch which has been decided by LINE and the regulations they have in place - they are only available for 90 days ;-;
If you want them to be available permanently then we need to get a few million downloads.
LINE have only officially released the stickers to folks in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore - again this was *not* my decision ><
BUT! There is actually a way for anybody to download any stickers regardless of their region - read on to find out how.
Please proceed at your own risk - if your phone blows up or you loose data then its Daves fault - not mine!
First up you need to go to your LINE settings > accounts. Most of you will have your phone number associated with your LINE account. This gives you away as the app knows what region you are in based on your phone number - even if you use a VPN to change your IP ^^;
What you need to do is disassociate your phone number with your account.
You do this by connecting your LINE account with Facebook - just click the link button.
For Android - go to Manage Apps > LINE and then clear data and cache - this will wipe your account details from your app.
iOS users will need to completely uninstall and reinstall LINE again ><
Its things like this which have made me stuck with Android which I talk about extensively here.
Do note that this will wipe all your chat history and probably images that you have not saved. Your contact list is kept on the LINE servers so that will be restored when you login again.
For Android, I download the free app Hideman VPN.
iOS users need to download VpnOneClick and change their IP address to Singapore, Malaysia or Indonesia.
And here are the full set of stickers illustrated by Japanese illustrator Ikkyuu-sensei.
The plan is to introduce more once the 90 days are up.
I'm also looking into making stickers available for Facebook too.
If there are any other communication services that you want to see stickers for then let me know.
