Path for Android

The Android Path application got itself a sizable update on Friday, bringing proper support for high-resolution 720p displays, as well as the ability to post to Tumblr blogs. Here's the full changelog for Version 2.0.30:

New features:

  • Full settings screen
  • Moon phases when sleeping
  • Share to Tumblr
  • Support for 320x480 screens
  • Support for 720x1280 screens (i.e. XHDPI)

Fixes and changes

  • Better friend invite screens
  • Cosmetic enhancements
  • Improved scrolling performance on feed screen
  • Tapping menu soft key now directly displays full menu
  • Various bug fixes

If you haven't tried Path yet, think of it as sort of a Foursquare check-in app (minus the gamification) crossed with a small scale Facebook -- a smaller, more intimate circle of friends. And Version 2.0 of Path is gorgeous. 

The addition of a full settings menu is nice because now you won't have to log in from a desktop browser just to change notifications, or your name or other details. The ability to share activities to Tumblr is a nice addition as well. (Can Google give up some Google+ API love already?) But probably the biggest update is support for 720x1280 displays -- ie the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, HTC Rezound, LG Optimus LTESamsung Galaxy Note -- and countless other phones to come. (That probably makes the addition 320x480 display support seem a bit inadequate, but we're not going to complain about an app adding more resolutions -- as well it should.) Before this update for 720p, Path worked fine, but the on-screen buttons were tiny, like the bad old days when you'd jack up your monitor beyond any usable resolution. It worked, but it was tough. This is a welcome change.

Head into the Android Market for the update, or we've got download links after the break.
