Product/App: Path Talk for Android & iOS

Rumor has it – Apple is in negotiations to acquire Path and integrate it’s features into iMessage, an attempt to up their social messaging game. What are some of those features you ask?

Well, with Path users can find out when friends are in the area, communicate using voice messages, edit photos, videos and chat one-on-one, or in a small group for free. The best part is all messages are deleted from Path’s server after 24 hours. Sounds cool right? Definitely, but the jury is still out as to whether or not Path will become a messaging superpower or even remotely make a dent in the social media landscape. With about 25 Million users, compared to Snapchat’s more than 100 Million monthly active users it’s unlikely Path will threaten the success of popular social messaging apps, but it does throw an interesting wrench into the mix, especially if the Apple rumors are true.
