Path 3.4 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 004)Path 3.4 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 005)

The once popular private social network, Path, has finally received today its way, way overdue iOS 7 refresh. I mean, the 2014 Valentine’s Day is looming and Apple released iOS 7 back on September 18, 2013.

If you’re still using Path – I don’t as I’m pressed for time – you’ll immediately notice a revamped appearance making the software adhere to the overall iOS 7 aesthetics.

Controls in Settings have been simplified, you can now use the iOS 7 swipe gesture to navigate the menus and browsing the Shop is now cleaner and more streamlined than it used to be.

The team says they’ve made the new version (3.4) simpler and easier to “do the things you do every day with Path”. Jump past the fold to see some nice screenies and learn more about the app. Or, if you’re impatient you can just go ahead and immediately grab Path 3.4 free in the App Store

Here’s the old (left) vs. new (right) Home screen icon.

Yes, you can now finally use the system-wide iOS 7 swipe gesture to quickly get from any messaging thread back home. In addition to a fresh coat of paint, the new Path has reorganised the Settings interface with the more detailed controls being grouped under the Account, Notifications and Sharing sections.

Account lets you update your profile photo, cover photo, email and other personal information. Notifications is where you can manage notifications for your Inner Circle and your Friends. Finally, Sharing allows you to manage and control all of the networks used for posting to from Path.

And this is your new Path feed.

The team says they revamped the in-app Shop “to showcase our premium stickers and filters in a more simplified way.

What does that mean?

In a nutshell, the four buttons on the bottom navigation bar act as your shortcuts to browse premium stickers and filters, upgrade to Path Premium, browse or restore your purchased packs and shop items.

On top of the new look and UI changes, you’ll hopefully notice some performance improvements in Path 3.4.

Path 3.4 is available free of charge in the App Store.

Surprisingly enough, the universal binary continues to support any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 6.0 or later.

Do you at this point care about Path at all?

    Error September 18, 2014. You mean 2013

  • Fikri CanCankurtaran

    It was good when people used Path but now nobody use and Path is nothing now.

  • Geert Cuppens

    I had a great time with Path, but at some point I couldn’t take the bugs anymore, and moved on.

  • on3simpleclick

    So, Path is like Facebook, but more private? Ain’t nobody got time for that.

  • johnnytalks

    I like the UI look of Path and it could be amazing if…….

    What if Path and Facebook had a baby?

    • kurt

      Then we would have another pointless social media app!

  • Framboogle

    What’s Path.

  • Omar D. Plumey

    I’ve never found the “Path”.

  • Charlychav

    I use Path all the day long. With my friends and family. Only. I don’t have any account on FB, no need that kind of friends. Mines are enough, I mean the closest ones.
    And we all (about 10 people) love to use it every day.
    Cheers.

  • David Villamizar

    Have we ever?

  • I found the Path, but I never followed it.

  • ffarouki

    Believe it or not, I often wondered myself why not more people use or talk about Path. I prefer it to Tumblr. But I use it in a peculiar way, to keep track of things for myself. I don’t follow anyone, nor I have anyone following me. As a diary so to speak. It’s UI is way better than T. I think.

  • Reyas Mohammed

    I have stopped long back.. why wasting precious space in iPhone.

  • Tom

    Path was great fun. For about 4 weeks. Then the novelty wore off and having to take care of Facebook, Twitter AND Path became tedious.

    I actually liked Path. The interface was better then Facebook. Sadly, the audience was not. I only had like 4 friends on there.

  • Way too little too late.
