The social networking app Path recieved a significant update, today, that allows users to journal their Nike+ runs, identify music that's playing around them, and when taking a photo, they can adjust the focus and exposure separately.
To journal your runs, you must connect Path to your Nike+ account directly within the Nike+ GPS app. When you start your run, Path will post on your behalf, letting your friends know so that they can cheer you on. Once you've completed your run, Path will display a map that shows where friends cheered you on and where you hit your best pace.
In addition to the welcomed upgrade to the camera that lets you choose separate focus and exposure points, Path has also debuted a new filter called Pow! that created a comic book effect. The Pro, Ansel, Instant, Diana, and Lomo lenses have also been greatly improved.
Music Match is an unexpected addition to the Path. It's like Shazam -- just let your iPhone listen to the music that's playing around you and it will identify the song for you.
There's a lot of significant feature additions in this update to Path that make the app more desirable. I'm still not entirely sold on the service, however. It does have a lot of potential, so I look forward to the continued development and growth of Path. Personally, I'm gonna give it another shot.
