Path Updates With Version 1.5, Adds Photo Lenses and Facebook Sharing

Filed as News with 3 comments

Path social network logoPath is on a tear over the last few months and today they have announced more new features for version 1.5 of their iPhone app. With the new update comes two exciting features, Facebook sharing and a new feature they are calling “Lenses.”

While the network allows for only a 50-friend limit, they are also now allowing users to share their posts with all of their Facebook friends using a Facebook share button. Using the button users can choose to post their photos and videos to their Facebook wall. The program offers the option to designate those files as private so only your Path friends on Facebook can see the posts or so everyone on Facebook can witness them.

The other new option, known as Path Lenses allows users to add some style to their photos and videos. As of today 7 lenses are offered. The first four are free and are titled: Pro, Ansel, Instant and Diana. While three Path Premium Lenses are also available at this time for $.99 each: Old Time, The Grib (pictured below) and 8-Bit.

More lenses are expected in the future according to Path co-founder Dave Morin.

Users will also find friend recommendations now included in the service and new activity-viewing. read more
