Has anyone been successful using this app? It is the messaging app I use the most, but in its current state it appears quite useless. It claims it can be used for making calls and sending stickers, but the only option available is to turn the alarm off and on.

If you have figured out how to get this app working, please let me know.

It used to work! I love Line and you could reply with a sticker right from the Gear. But now it doesn´t work...

Alarm off or on refers to the alerts of the Line messages, but no...doesn´t work.

Ok. One more question. Do you have notifications turned on in gear manager for line, or do you let the line for gear app handle them?

Thanks

I finally figured it out after reading through reviews. You have to have pop up notifications turned on in the line app on your phone for the program on the gear to work properly. You can use either the "simple" or "default" setting. This pretty much just makes me not want to use the app.

Thats what I meant when I recommended to have notifications on when the screen is off. you have to play with the notifications settings on the phone. Ive also notice that sometimes notifications dont get send out to the gear when you have a screen lock. How do you like it now? its pretty cool huh, I just wish they included more stickers for the gear

The app requiring pop up notifications was a deal breaker for me. Half the reason I wanted the watch was so I didn't have to turn my screen on as often as I do. I also don't want people just seeing random pop ups. I deleted it in favor of the regular notifications until it gets better.
