LINE shopping, why LINE is Thailand’s super app

What is a super app?

Not a laser shooting out of an eye app, no. A super app, according to Gartner, is a range of component tools (mini-apps) that the user can use and remove as needed, generally the ability to make payments, shop, communicate, and other services on a platform.

When we talk about a super app, we will instantly think of the China-based instant messaging app WeChat right away.
