Path, the “private social network” startup has released an update for its iOS app.
The update brings new features such as private messaging and a new digital store called “The Shop” where users can buy Photo filters and stickers.
From Path’s blog:
One-to-one and group messaging is made for the smaller, more personal conversations that you want to have on Path. It includes text, voice, location, stickers, songs, books, movies, photos, and videos. There’s utility and context. For example, if you’re running late, you can tap the location button to let a friend know where you are. Or if you don’t have free hands to type, you can record a voice message.
Stickers? These are pieces of art to be used in messaging. They are expressive and fun, and they communicate what words can’t. You can choose what speaks to you, and speaks best on your behalf: a fist bump, over-caffeination, jealousy, big love. We’ve given you two free sticker packs designed in-house and we’ve worked with some of our favorite artists, like David Lanham, Hugh MacLeod, and Richard Perez, to create packs that you can buy in the Shop.
In addition to stickers, the ability to buy Photo filters from the digital store also seems to be a new feature.
You can download the update via the Updates tab in the App Store app or download it using the direct iTunes store link below.
While I love the user interface of the app, I just haven’t used Path a lot. I would love to know if you use it, so drop me a line in the comments.
