Network effect! Path cracks the iPhone App Store top 25

Mobile social network Path‘s great reviews — and likely its network effects — are kicking in.

With its latest push, Path 2.0 has cracked the top 25 free apps on Apple’s iPhone App Store: It’s currently no. 23, up from no. 108 on Saturday. It also helps that Apple continues to feature it in the top “new and noteworthy” slot on iTunes.

Here’s a graph of Path’s iPhone app rankings over the past month, via AppAnnie, in Social Networking (red) and overall (blue).

Looking good. Now let’s see if it has long-term staying power. I’ll check back.
