Path Is A Mobile-Only Private Social Network

Android/iOS: If you can somehow manage to fit another social network into your life, Path, a mobile-only, simplified social networking app, has just relaunched with a complete overhaul to its interface and style.

While it’s billed as a social network, it operates more like a journal, where you record thoughts, photos, and events throughout the day. You get 150 friends and the limit is imposed to keep you with close friends. Since it’s only available on iOS and Android, it also means it’s easier to keep private, so you likely won’t have second-cousins bothering you for friendship.

The platform itself is dead simple, with no apps, photo galleries, or links. It’s solely about what you’re thinking and doing, and who you’re with. The updates in this version cover a wide spectrum, the completely new interface works great, and there are added features like music, check-in and notification integration. You can also set it to record automatically, which means the app will track your location when you’re in a new neighbourhood or city.

Path is a free download for iOS and Android, with in-app purchases if you’re interested in camera filters to apply to the notes you make. It can be used as a private journal of your daily activities or a small social network;’ it’s up to you.
