Most of us have jumped on board the social media bandwagon, but services like Facebook and Twitter are not intimate anymore. If you’re embarking on a holiday or setting off for the adventure of a lifetime, it’s nice to be able to stay connected with your social life and also to offer your closest friends and family an insight into your trip. The Path app is the perfect solution.

The idea is to create a small network of family and friends. There’s a limit of 150 people and you can forget about adding workmates or people you haven’t seen since high school because the point is to get the intimacy back and share with the people who really care. Since the app allows you to check in at locations, write journal entries and capture, edit and share photos, it is the perfect tool for creating a holiday diary.
Select your inner circle and they can see your adventure unfold as it happens. You can also use the Path app to check up on your streams from Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Foursquare, and you can share specific content with a wider audience if you want to.
It’s a completely free app and it has a user-friendly interface so you’ll pick it up in no time. The Path app is available for the iPhone, iPad or for Android devices.
