|Drama Apps are story-based apps for mobile devices. From romance to suspense, users can be the protagonist of their own stories in a new form of entertainment which is neither a game nor a comic.
* Romance Apps are apps that allow users to choose the guy they like best and enjoy a love story with him. Over 100 titles are currently available for download through the App Store and Google Play.
* Voltage’s Romance Apps have been played by more than 60 million people worldwide (as of 11/30/2017). This number reflects the total number of people who downloaded our apps from the App Store or Google Play, on Japanese cell phone carrier plans, and on a variety of social gaming platforms.
