With its privacy gaffe earlier this year squarely behind them, the folks at Path are forging ahead with new features to make sharing with loved ones better than ever. Bigger photos, movie and book sharing and more are all on deck in Path 2.5.
Path has released version 2.5 for both iOS and Android, and despite some recent service slowdowns due to explosive growth for the app, the focus with this version is all about speed and enhancements to existing features.
Path 2.5 finally allows users to snap photos using the iPhone's volume button, just like the built-in Camera app. Likewise, a single tap on the photo screen will kick off a video recording. Your photos will look better than ever thanks to the update taking full advantage of the screen real estate of your device, and new filters round out the photographic goodies in this version.
But it doesn't stop there: In addition to sharing music, Path users can now tag movies or books from the same place, so your friends can be envious when you're watching the latest hot movie or reading a new best-seller.
Path has also introduced a Nudge feature -- similar to Facebook's Poke, Nudge is aimed at encouraging your friends and family to post more frequently or even suggest others to connect with.
"And invitations on Path are even more personal," the service notes on its blog. "You can record and send a voice message: 'Join Path, mama!' 'Start sharing with me cuz’!' You get the idea. We’ll let you put your own spin on it."
Finally, Path 2.5 makes it easier than ever to get started for new users. As always, the free app is available for iOS in the App Store and also Google Play for Android lovers.
