# Introducing LINE MINI App
LINE MINI App is a web application that runs on LINE. LINE MINI App enables users to enjoy services without installing a separate native app.
"LINE MINI App" is the official brand name, but in Japan "LINEミニアプリ (LINE MINI 'Apuri')"is the official name.
LINE MINI App is a web browser, so most HTML5 specs can be used. For more information, refer to the Specifications.
Unlike the LIFF App, LINE MINI App requires acquiring development qualifications and permissions from LINE before developing. To start, read the Quick Start Guide and Enroll in the LINE MINI App Development Program. Once you are granted permission to create a LINE MINI App channel, you are ready to start developing your LINE MINI App.
To start developing the LINE MINI App channel, you need a LINE Developers console account. Many tasks, from LINE MINI App configuration to app submission for review, are carried out on the LINE Developers console. If you already have a console account, you may start creating your LINE MINI App channel.
