Path Adds Video

In a blog post this evening, San Francisco-based Path announced that it has added video capabilities to its photo sharing app for the Apple iPhone. “Wonderful personal moments can be captured and shared with a photo. But, they would be infinitely better with video,” the company writes in the post. The addition of the video feature, which allows users to share clips up to 10 seconds long, could help to mollify critics who’ve argued that the Path app lacks key capabilities; the company’s decision to limit photo sharing to a “personal network” of 50 people provoked the ire of critics such as Om Malik, who wrote that “the idea of a restricted, personal network has the utility of a toy poodle.”
