Path just released a new app in the Apple App store that has a whole host of new features.Path held an event at its offices today to show off the new version of Path, with PandoDaily founder Sarah Lacy in attendance reporting the news live.

Here are all the new features:

  • The camera app is getting an update, and now has a new way of adjusting focus and exposure.
  • Path will release some new “lenses,” which are basically camera filters, that will cost money. The app already has special lenses that cost around $1 that you can purchase.
  • Path will allow Nike+, an app that tracks your runs, to access Path and post updates to it. Morin hinted at this integration earlier this year. This will use the Nike FuelBand in some way, according to Lacy.
  • Path will open its Application Programming Interface (API) over time to more developers, which will let them tie their own apps into Path’s activity stream.

Here are all the new stats Path announced below, according to Lacy:

  • 100 million moments have been shared on path.
  • 70 per cent of users come back to the app every week.
  • 1 billion pieces of feedback — such as smiles or comments — on those moments.

It’s pretty impressive that an app like Path can have a press conference like Google or Apple and attract reporters in the same way.

After launching in November, the app has been on an absolute tear. It had 2 million registered users as of early January this year.

We’ve previously reported that Path was in the process of raising a funding round to go with its shiny new app.

Also, it keeps Mark Zuckerberg awake at night.
