Path gets big Nike and music updates

Path updated its self-titled iOS app (App Store) Thursday to uniquely combine features from other activities in its social stream. By using a newly available API to plug other services into Path, the title can now automatically posts Nike+ GPS runs as generated by the Nike app, taking them once they've reached the cloud. A Shazam-like music matching feature can now identify nearby music and provide a link to buy it in iTunes.

More strictly self-contained updates add the option to independently adjust the focus and exposure in a shot, a new comic book-like "Pow!" filter, and a high-resolution camera preview. Five of the free camera filters have been improved, and it's now possible to see a person's profile photo in full size by tapping and holding on it when it appears in the stream.

The app is optimized for iPhones and iPods, although it will work on any device with iOS 4.3 or later. Path hasn't yet updated the Android version.
