Memories mean a lot to us. And it’s been like that for humans forever. We’ve invented methods of keeping memories so we can relive them, share them with others, and pass them on. Storytelling, in its many forms, has been our best memory-preserver – and our history, religions, moral codes, are all the result. Recently, our tools and methods for keeping our own memories safe have been shoe boxes, notebooks, photo albums, home videos, folders of pictures on computers, cell phone photo libraries. But today we’re offering a new way: Search, on Path 2.9. Search allows you to find all of your memories instantly.
Search to recall stories faster. Show your family that hilarious Halloween costume or your friends your recent hiking trip. Two taps and boom!, the moments are there for you to share. Whether you’ve been capturing and sharing moments on Path for a while now or you are just starting today, search will be your best way to remember, access and keep your memories. Import your life to Path from Facebook, Instagram, and Foursquare, and keep every moment in one safe place, take it with you wherever you go, and recall anything instantly.
Different personalized search suggestions pop up every time you tap the search bar. Specific stories like, “Photos from the ski hill,” “Watching the baseball game,” “Listening to music on the weekend,” give you ideas of memories in your Path to bring up. Other search queries are categorized by friends, places, dates and holidays, seasons and weather, locations, birthdays, moments, and emotions. If you tap “Nearby,” the moments recalled will only be those captured near your current location. You can find that sushi restaurant downtown or get ideas for touring Seattle. Additionally, you can type to search for a specific memory. You might be grasping for the same memory when once you think, “Thanksgiving last year,” and another time, “Dana happy in autumn,” and the next, “funny turkey photo.” So you can search like you think, it’s how we’ve designed it.
We are rolling out Search incrementally and in English only to start, so please hold tight and know we’ll do our best to get it to every one of you soon. Download Path 2.9 in the App Store or Google Play for your iPhone, iPad or Android. We hope you love it.
