Months ago, Social network Path came under great scrutiny after it was discovered that the app was uploading a user’s entire address book to Path’s servers. Path was hiding this fact from iOS users.
Path is trying to pave over those privacy cracks, promising that its next update will “hash” the contact data it previously used to suck up without prior warning. Path received heavy criticism for its server that was uploading the address-books of Path users without their knowledge.
The Path iOS app was recently updated and the updated version is there in the App Store. Path App users will now witness the introduction of a slew of new features such as Nike+ GPS Running Stories, Music Match (to help identify and share currently playing songs), and camera improvements.
