Path Talk has launched a new feature called Places, where you can find a local business within the social networking app, and you can send an instant message to that business. That message actually goes to a Path Agent who will call on your behalf and do stuff like make a reservation, check store hours, or see if they have your size of shirt. Surprisingly enough, this service is offered for free in the U.S. and Canada.
Path Talk is a spin-off instant messaging app from a mobile-first social network with elements of Foursquare and Facebook packaged in a nice, ad-free UI. They sell stickers and offer a premium subscription service, but on the whole the service is really nice, even if it's a bit redundant with the other major networks out there. This new Path Talk feature is a great idea, provided it's reliable. I was able to check stock levels at a Rogers store within five minutes or so. Nobody likes sitting on hold, and having someone else do that for you for free is compelling reason to keep this app installed.
How many of you guys are using Path already? Does Path Talk Places sound good enough to give it a go?
