Path is an Instagram alternative that takes a different approach. Rather than sharing your photos and videos with the general public, the Path app lets you share with groups of up to 50 friends and family members. The sharing is done via other iOS devices, email or Facebook. The app lets you see who views your photos and videos, and lets your friends and family chat with you or post comments about your photos and videos.
