Path on Android Receives “Lenses” in Update, Those Would be Image Filters a la Instagram

Familiar with Path? It’s like Facebook Timeline. Actually they are identical in many ways, but Path is its own separate entity. The idea is to start a “path” and record your entire life so that down the road, you can look back and see how far you have come and how much fun you had along the way. It’s actually a pretty popular service and not a bad idea, except again, that Facebook just rolled out a similar service known as Timeline, so that could essentially be your path dating back years rather than starting this new path which would begin, well today. But I digress.

In the latest update, users are treated to “Lenses” which are just like the filters that Instagram users obsess over. So now, your Path can include bad photos of your shoes, cupcakes, One Direction, and 16 year olds showing off their abs in fun filters named “Diana” and “Lomo.”

    I stumble on the wrong site?” waiting for the dateline people to show
    up. But I guess that’s what upscale prettyboy iPhone users do? I don’t
    know I’m just a poor android user who can’t even afford my own hair gel.

    So Path are essentially trying to get off from everyone quitting Instagram because of the Facebook acquisition by making their own Instagram like features?

    Good move. Hope it pays off, Path is a good service.

    Also, to the people saying that this is boring: Kellex can’t invent news, you know.

      iOS users on Path have had photo lenses for awhile.  Android is just now finally getting it, FINALLY.

    I sense sarcasm. But rightly so… instagram sucks. We have already seen apps like it, and they are mindnumbingly boring.

    “…16 year olds showing off their abbs…” ha ha ha I’m glad I’m not the only one who found this odd. At first I was like “wtf, did I stumble on the wrong site?” waiting for the dateline people to show up. But I guess that’s what upscale prettyboy iPhone users do? I don’t know I’m just a poor android user who can’t even afford my own hair gel.
