Nokia: Path for Windows Phone “coming soon” with 50 exclusive photo filters

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):

“With a 150 friend limit, Path is a place where you can feel more comfortable sharing moments with your closest friends and family. The app has been praised for its sleek design and user-friendly interface that makes sharing a photo, song or video, capturing a thought, and documenting other meaningful moments of your life easy and enjoyable.

With Path’s free private and group messaging, you can send voice, text, photos and fun expressive stickers to friends.

And for those who want to share the occasional moment to a larger network, you can easily post your Path moments to Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Tumblr.”

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.

I can't wait for it!

12Danny123 says:

OMG. I loved this app when I was on android. Can't wait to have it on WP!. Life time stories :D

Dk92 says:

Nice. Any updates for pinterest?

moc426 says:

Sounds like Nokia exclusive

Eas195 says:

no. I think it will be at all Windows Phones.

12Danny123 says:

Nah. When they mean Windows phone it's likely all WPs. While there's a Nokia Lumia version with most of the filters. Fair enough

Eas195 says:

+1. I agree with you. Most filters will be available at all Windows Phones, but there will be some filters and some features like LiveSight feature that will be Nokia exclusive, IMO.

12Danny123 says:

That's a very good strategy. Get the big app on all WPs but keep some features on Nokia Lumias. This is what I call a caring company :)

neo158 says:

I think it will be, the tweet says Path app coming soon to Nokia. To me that suggests exclusivity!!!

Eas195 says:

Path, here I come! *ditching Facebook as the primary social networking*
Oh, wait. It's still coming soon. *waiting*

Sweet cause I'm tired of telling people I don't have this app yet

Eas195 says:

...even in my cover picture on Facebook, I put the word 'soon!' on Path account.

Josh Harman says:

You're welcome, although I'm sure you guys get @NokiaUS twitter feed too.

rphartanto says:

Please stop teasing us! I may sound lame, but this app will complete my windows phone experience. Cant wait any longer.

Eas195 says:

Just wait for its release. It might be the end of August, or in the early of September.

AndyGriff says:

I'm beginning to suffer from social network fatigue.  How is this different from literally all the others?  I can't help feel there's an awful lot of crossover between most of these sites.  I downloaded 6tag the other day (being a consciencious WP user who supports developers) but I still can't quite fathom the fundamental difference between posting pictures on Facebook and posting them on Instagram, other than that on the latter site, they're square.

schlubadub says:

Isn't Instagram more public, so all the hipsters can fawn over each others "antique" photos of cupcakes and fixies?

WinFan1 says:

im kinda with you on that. im glad we got the big four twitter fb insta and vine but to be honest im kinda tired of social networking apps. i want gamestop and ign and other cool games and whatnot.

Kristijan87 says:

On Instagram you are allowed to use zillions of hashtags per picture (i.e. no one will object) when on Facebook people will probably find you and rape you and your whole family if you dare to use more than one hashtag. :) That's the fundamental difference, I think.

Sean D. says:

Man, I'm with you 110%

poddie says:

Completely agree.  Why would I want to be on six different social networking sites?  I just don't understand.  They all do pretty much the same thing... post a comment, share a picture or video.  To me, it only really makes sense ot be on one or two... and basically whichever has the most users wins.  So currently I'm on Facebook and LinkedIn.  No desire to have more.
But, I'm glad that for people that do want more they will be making the apps... I just still don't understand why you'd want to.  I will say that the Facebook "Suggested Posts" disaster is makig me seriously consider moving to something else... but like I said, everyone I know is on Facebook, so what sense would that make?

Ratman826 says:

Just hope the features remains the same compare to ios/android

Josh Harman says:

It will possibly be better.
Actually I've never used/seen Path so I have no idea.

Eas195 says:

Looking at its design, I'm sure Path will give much better feature compared to iOS and Android. Just the way like 6tag's design I looked at.

NIST says:

Awesome app. Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel use it all the time in their posts. Can't wait. It combines a lot of elements from different social apps. I probably like it more than instagram.

jcsoriano18 says:

I shall start using it now.

WP95 says:

all good and dandy with path coming to WPs, like to know more about Vine. and also where is snapchat? you guys reported mid july? its almost september. any word Daniel?

Josh Harman says:

Were the 3rd party apps removed just because of infringement or because an official app is expected?

12Danny123 says:

Probably both

ymcpa says:

6sec is avaiable as a vine client.

Oh joy now we can get the same trashy looking photos as lameOS. Just want I want. I hate filters. I remember when I was a kid, people used to spend a LOT of money trying to restore 50 year old photos. So why would we want to make our pictures look like crap in the first place? The advantage of digital is that it looks just as good in 50 years (if you didn't delete it) as it does today.

cookgoose says:

Nokia please give me an update on that wonderful style magazine app "Flipboard", that's the only app i am missing from my Lumia 925 on WP8 since i ditch iOS.

dalydose says:

Nokia is such a tease. Fortunately when they tease something, its nit usually too far away from release.

BK-one says:

What a coincidence, Tony Wang reviewed the 1020 (his new personal phone) on before you buy show just this week. Anyway, he said he was sad that PATH was not in WP8. He gave it great review. He like it enough to make it he new phone of choices.

edjr07 says:

Must have path I have been tweeting them trying to get a beta!

out0fplace says:

Path kinda died a few years ago, but anywho, good for us.

AskaLangly says:

PATH? Port Authority Trans-Hudson? New York? Haha.

jcsoriano18 says:

The largest underground shopping complex in the world found in Toronto?

Karanstyle says:

Where's Flip Board??

Rick Smits says:

Everything is coming soon!

MDak280 says:

Nice! I've never used Path but it might be cool to try out. I hope an official Vine and Snapchat app are soon to follow!

rynthnyltrr says:

with all these 2 version apps like oggl and oggl pro it feels like my wp8 is becoming wp7.8 because of these exclusivity! dammit..

CrackFachry says:

I can't wait!!!
Path is my favorite social network app.
With this coming I can finally ditch my Android. And there is no reason for stopping my friends from buying Lumia/Windows Phone. Most of them ask: Are Path/Instagram available on WP? Now it's almost there...

Poresson says:

I can't wait ;D
