We’re leading today’s Fresh Apps with a game just in time for the weekend. Asphalt 7: Heat took a while to arrive in Google Play, but now it’s here, it offers a lot of fun arcade-racing action for just under a buck. We’ve also got the lowdown on Moped, a free private messaging service which works on multiple platforms and across multiple programs. Finally, there’s an update to noted social networking app, Path, which adds some cool new functionality to the already-popular service.
The ‘closed’ social networking app, designed to keep users up-to-date with the activity of close friends and relatives only, received another update yesterday, bringing it up to version 2.5. New features include the ability to ‘nudge’ friends, similar to Facebook’s ‘poke’ capabilities.
In addition, Path will now display larger photos and users can add filters. Books and movies can now be shared, too, including review information. There’s a more sophisticated notification system to keep track of friends’ activities and a number of bug fixes.
