Back when Nokia announced the Lumia 1020 in New York City, one of the accompanying software decrees was for Path, the popular “personal social network” that is wildly popular on iOS and Android. Of course the question everyone wants to know is when is it coming?
Today, Nokia teased the app’s release a bit via Twitter and their Conversations blog where they do note that it’s “coming soon”. No firm date was given but the article highlights an interview with co-founder and CEO of Path, David Morin.
The article mostly recapitulates what we already know about Path (alternatively, it’s a great read if you’re not familiar):
In the post, Nokia writes on how they worked closely with Path for the app, including those previously announced “50 exclusive photo filters” and the Nokia camera SDK that the app takes advantage of. They also discuss the “ambient location sharing” option that is not available on other social networks.
Seeing as Nokia is publishing this article now, despite the interview having taken place back at the Lumia 1020 announcement, we can assume that the app is right around the corner. Combined with the Nokia tweet that it’s “coming soon” and we could be looking at an August release just yet. It is still uncertain if the app will be exclusive to Nokia, or much like Oggl there will be two versions.
