Path for Android

I've been desperately trying to convert from Foursquare to Path for bothering most of my social networks at once, but a pretty critical bug was keeping that from happening. But Path's just released an update that fixes Twitter authentication in Ice Cream Sandwich, as well as keeping push notifications from being delivered if, in fact, that's the way you want it.

For the uninitiated, Path is sort of mix of Foursquare and a much smaller Facebook. The idea is to have a tight-knit group of friends with which you share. Of course, adding the ability to share via Twitter, Facebook and, yes, Foursquare, opens it up to much more. The app itself is stunning, though it could use a little refresh for 720p displays.

If you haven't checked it out yet, we've got download links after the break.

Path for Android updates to fix ICS-Twitter authentication


Huh, I'll have to check it out.

typo alert: "The app is stunning, _thought_ it could use a little refresh for 720p displays"

Actually it is a typo :P Either because he should've used "though" instead of "thought", or because it would be a comma splice.

I'll have a look to, sounds interesting...

Must disagree with the "typo alert" - read fine to me (though - meaning "However" or "Despite the fact", more commonly spelt "tho" now of days)...

That's cuz it used to say "thought" haha. I can't edit my comment to reflect that it has since been changed though :(

Downloaded but it appears nobody I know is on it, at least by the facebook search it did. The app looks nice though.

there's no way to add foursquare or twitter account it seems so i'm not sure how they "fixed" the problem. i guess they fixed it by removing that ability?

Is this the same PATH referred to in this article?

Seems like it is:

Morin said in his response that it was the San Francisco-based company's stance that "this type of friend finding & matching is important to the industry and that it is important that users clearly understand it, so we proactively rolled out an opt-in for this on our Android client a few weeks ago and are rolling out the opt-in for this in 2.0.6 of our iOS Client, pending App Store approval.
