Path for Windows Phone was announced last July at the Nokia Lumia 1020 launch event. It took a half a year for the app to make the jump from the PowerPoint slide to your phone, which it did earlier this year in January. Since then we’ve seen three minor updates for the app that didn’t help shake the beta label. Today Path hits version 2.0 in the Windows Phone Store.
The last update we saw for Path came in mid-February when a bug fix was applied. Today we’re sitting at version 188.8.131.525 in the Windows Phone Store with the following features:
- Includes better stability
- Path Shop
- Bug fixes
Stability is something we’re always looking forward to seeing in app updates. When Path first launched we weren’t big fans of the performance and so far we’re not too impressed with the improved stability. Speed is about the same, but we’re also getting a lot of connection errors trying to use the app. However, closing and reopening the app seemed to fix those initials issues. Play around and let us know what you find in terms of stability/bug fixes.
The Path Shop is a feature a lot of you have been clamoring for and it’s finally here. When you upgrade to Path Premium you get access to unlimited sticker packs, early access to new Shop items and support an ad-free network. Unfortunately we can’t find a way to upgrade to Path Premium through the app. Find it and let us know.
It also appears sound effects have been added to Path. Thankfully you can turn those off in the settings, unless you’re into beeps every time you press a button.
Play around with the updated version of Path and let us know what you think and find! We’re really pulling for Path, but it needs a little more work.
