Path beta app now in the Windows Phone Store

The long-awaited Path private social network app is now in the Windows Phone Store.

The Windows Phone 8 app is however in closed beta, but its arrival in the store is a clear sign that we will not have to wait too long now for access.

The small social network has less than 20 million users and allows members to have only a maximum of 150 friends, meaning you have to choose your friends carefully and your friend list is therefore a lot more intimate.

The app has already been officially announced for Windows Phone as far back as August, but a release date was not announced at the time.

Path coming to Windows Phone “soon”

Anvid Erdian, a Nokia Indonesia Product Manager, has told local publication Okezone.com that private social network Path would "… soon be present (on Windows Phone). Soon. Wait time is it.”

Okezone suggests the app will arrive in a matter of days and will join recent popular arrivals like Instagram and Vine.

The app has already been officially announced for Windows Phone as far back as August, but a release date was not announced at the time.

Anvid also said BBM may make its way to our OS, saying:

"We present the application of fame and see if the application is much in demand by the public. And we see enough fuel demand, there is likely to be present in the Windows Phone.”

Private Social Network Path coming to Windows Phone soon

path465

In a blog post Nokia has announced that the Path app for Windows Phone will be hitting the Windows Phone Store soon.

The Facebook-like app with a maximum of 150 friends, which ensures a private experience, features free private and group messaging, and the ability to send voice, text, photos and fun expressive stickers to friends.

“We’ve designed Path specifically for your personal life and the people that matter most to you,” says Dave Morin, co-founder and CEO of Path, in an interview with Conversations.

“It’s very private and simple and we focus intensely on design and quality. We try to give you a beautiful way to capture and share those meaningful moments with your close friends and family.”

Path’s Windows Phone app will also have over 50 unique photo filters powered by Nokia’s imaging API.  The filters will be exclusive to Nokia Lumia smartphones.

The app will also feature “ambient location sharing”, which automatically updates your location when traveling to a new neighbourhood or city.

“We’re a product and design-driven company just like Nokia. So we’re really excited about some of the product features that we were able to develop using Windows Phone, in particular things like Live Tiles and the ability to integrate our notifications directly into the lock screen,” Morin said.

The app is expected to be available shortly.

Path for Windows Phone demoed (video)

At the Nokia Lumia 1020 unveil Nokia announced that Path was coming to Windows Phone, and the company had a version of the app already ready at a pretty advanced stage.

The app appears to offer all the features of the iOS version, and in addition offers Live Tile and Lock Screen notifications and will also support providing images for your lock screen.

The app also makes use of Nokia’s Imaging SDK, which does raise concern that the app may be a Nokia exclusive.  Path did not say when the app will become available, but it will presumably be not long after the NL 1020 launches.

Path coming to Windows Phone, which founder Dave Morin calls “really good” and “impressive”

We reported earlier that Path, a social network designed exclusively for mobile use, was indeed coming to Windows Phone. Since then we took the time to watch through the whole webcast of the PandoMonthly event and dug up some interesting quotes from Path founder Dave Morin regarding Windows Phone.

Morin, who worked at Apple and Facebook before founding Path, talked about his company’s plans for the different mobile platforms in response to an audience question, beginning around the 1:08:00 mark (you can find the webcast over at PandoDaily). While he dismissed plans for a BlackBerry version entirely, saying that “we’re actively not developing for BlackBerry”, his attitude towards Windows Phone is markedly different. Admitting that “half the company is from Apple”, with 80% of its resources dedicated to iOS and the rest to Android, he said:

We’re also beginning work on Windows Phone, mostly because we believe that the product is really good. I don’t know if you guys have played with a Windows Phone but it’s actually quite impressive.

He even held his ground after a weird (but rather typical, for the tech blogging crowd) remark from Sarah Lacy, the PandoDaily founder and former TechCrunch writer, who, obviously never having tried a Windows Phone, asked him whether “it is impressive because it is from Microsoft”, implying “such a low bar” for Microsoft products that Windows Phone is inevitably going to look good in comparison:

Well, they could’ve just copied everybody else, right, and used their cash and distribution power to… [Google+ is brought up] I mean, they could go and do something similar to Android and iPhone right, they both have icons and apps and all this stuff, but Microsoft actually, I think what they’re doing is really bold, they’re actually throwing out the old Windows interface and they’re doing this Live Tile thing and this really interesting Metro interface, and I actually think it’s super bold. [...] Being okay with throwing out the old stuff, they’re moving on, and so, I have a lot of respect for that. [...] You know, it’s not gonna be a huge resource dedication, but we’ll start there.

Of course, he didn’t say anything new for most of us, but it’s definitely a good sign that a CEO from a hot Silicon Valley startup is acknowledging the work Microsoft is doing, especially if considering that the marketshare of Windows Phone is still pretty small.

Responding to further questions about the design of Path, which, as we wrote earlier, “relies on drop shadows and other faux-3D effects” commonly found on iOS, Morin said that “you’d have to hire a full-time designer for each platform”. This is definitely good news as well, since Path’s design, while excellent on iOS, would definitely need some change to fit in with the minimalist Metro UI.

So, do you think that this is a sign of things to come, that Windows Phone is finally establishing itself with the cool kids, or does Microsoft still have too much of a perception problem with tech bloggers?

Path mobile social networking app coming to Windows Phone 7!

imagePath is a phenomenon on the iPhone, being a social network which only works via iPhone or Android apps and which allows you to have only a maximum of 50 friends, thereby forcing you to limit yourself to your intimate friends, rather than hundreds of mere acquaintances.

Path has more than 2 million users and is expanding all over the world.

Part of this expansion seems to be exploring other platforms, and Path founder Dave Morin revealed at the March PandoMonthly event in San Francisco that his company is working on a Windows Phone app.

(Update: We’ve gone over the whole webcast ourselves and found some more interesting quotes from Dave Morin.)

The Next Web notes him as saying:

While Path says that it is get the service on “as many devices as possible” there are no plans to develop for BlackBerry, which is popular in Asia and other developing markets. The company is, however, working on a Windows Phone app, and Morin described the Microsoft operating system as “impressive”, but iOS accounts for 80 percent of its focus, he said.

As Windows Phone grows its market share from miniscule to just small, and firmly establishes itself as the third mobile ecosystem, we should see more and more apps coming to the platform just so companies can cover all their bases, and hopefully once Windows Phone reaches a significant market share and Microsoft makes the OS even easier to program for, by allowing native code for example, including Windows Phone may simply be a no-brainer.

Thanks Alessandro for the tip.

Mobile social network Path will “perhaps” come to Windows Phone

In an interview, Path CEO Dave Morin told AllThingsD that the company may develop a Windows Phone version of its popular social network that’s only accessible through its mobile apps, currently available on iOS and Android.

Next up are extended platform tools (Path already has a deal to get health data from Nike), smarter friend-request filtering, and perhaps a Windows Phone app, Morin said.

With a user base of about 2 million people, Path certainly is not comparable to Facebook or Twitter. However, it is extremely popular with the tech crowd, and features an exceptionally well designed UI with lots of attention to detail – having used it myself, I can attest to that. For instance, when scrolling through your feed, there’s a small clock, with the clock hands rotating to show the time a particular entry was posted.

Similar to Instagram, it’s the kind of application that, if ported to Windows Phone, would give Microsoft’s new platform a lot of credibility with tech bloggers.

Furthermore, it would be very interesting to see how its UI, which heavily relies on drop shadows and other faux-3D effects, can translate to the minimalistic Metro design language of Windows Phone. While its marketplace already boasts over 60,000 applications, fewer of them are designed by professional designers than those on, say, iOS. A company with such proven design skills should be able to push the boundaries on Metro, thus inspiring more awesome and differentiated Windows Phone apps.
