Path app to of­fer searches


Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS - Con­tin­ued from B

than 1 bil­lon users the op­tion to down­load ev­ery­thing they have shared on the ser­vice.

It has be­come eas­ier this year for Face­book users to look at their past mus­ings and pho­tos as the ser­vice con­verted peo­ple’s pro­files into a time­line that sorts con­tent by the month it was shared.

Path, an­other so­cial net­work founded by former Face­book ex­ec­u­tive Dave Morin, is also try­ing to po­si­tion it­self as a trea­sure chest of memo- ries.

A new fea­ture re­leased Thurs­day in an up­date to Path’s mo­bile app al­lows users to search their past posts on de­vices run­ning on Ap­ple and An­droid soft­ware.

The con­tent can be quickly re­trieved by typ­ing in their friends’ names, a spe­cific event or time of year, or just a phrase en­cap­su­lat­ing a va­ca­tion high­light, such as “hik­ing in Kauai.”
