Path has just been updated to add private messaging, stickers and "The Shop" to fall in line with the update that hit iOS yesterday. If you're not familiar, Path is a social network that is limited to a set number of friends, which is meant to enhance the relationships you build with the smaller group. This latest update is hoping to help with that by offering private messaging between users, as well as "stickers" that can be sent back and forth. Some of the stickers are free, but others are paid -- in the range of $0.99 to $1.99. If you want to make a sticker purchase, you'll have to head to The Shop, where you can also buy filters for photos you post (a la Instagram) at $0.99 a piece.

The update certainly adds a useful feature in the form of private messages, but still leaves us scratching our heads over paid stickers and photo filters. If you haven't checked out Path in a while, maybe the new update is worth it for you to give another look. You can grab a download from the Play Store link above.

Path update hits Android with messaging, stickers and 'The Shop'


Does anyone else who is using Path notice that it is TERRIBLY slow when processing any data? I just sent a message to test it out and it's now 3 minutes later and it still is sending. That is what makes Path unusable for me. Otherwise, I really like the software. I just can't get it to do anything.

Path is complete trash. Don't sign up unless you want them to spam your Facebook friends with invites without your permission.

Same thing happened to me. Also, after numerous attempts to get my account deleted it is still there. They just dance around the issue, finally say ok, ask for the account info to delete it and once i send it nothing. The account is still there just deactivated. Worst company ever.
