Path was recently updated adding its popular stickers feature to comments as well as improved user-interface navigation for its iPad app. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, Path is a social networking and messaging service for mobile devices and the web, which launched in 2010. Much like Facebook, Path users can buy or use free stickers to respond to friends in messages (and now in comments as well). The stickers add color and depth to commentary and offer users a new way to express themselves.
While talking about stickers, Path’s launch of Xander should be mentioned. Xander is a sticker character that drools and has poor posture, but he is also “polite, approachable, fun-loving (and single!).” As for the iPad app update, Path also added improved navigaton in both landscape and profile views. The landscape view was also given a composer button and feed.
Along with the aforementioned changes, the app also has a new layout which makes conversations just a single tap away. Friend requests have become simpler as well. On it’s official blog, Path mentioned the following:
We generate a QR code for you, your friend scans it, and voila, it’s official! And a refined friends list makes it faster to find and message your friends and family so you can quickly be in touch.
