Want To Bump An Android? Bump Gets Updated And Goes Cross-Platform
Bump v1.2 has just made its way into the App Store. It contains quite a few new features that will allow you to share even more information with a simple bump of your hand, but that's not the only thing that's got us itching to get bumping once again. Bump Technologies has also released a brand new Android version of Bump, allowing us iPhone users to bump our Android toting friends. Just remember to be gentle. Bump is a popular free contact sharing app for the iPhone, iPod touch, and now Android. It gained tons of popularly in a relatively short period of time thanks to a little luck, as Bump was the billionth downloaded app from the App Store. The developers have chosen to spread their wings beyond our platform of choice, but they certainly haven't left our version of Bump sitting dormant. Bump v1.2 allows you to discover mutual friends from both your personal address book and Facebook profiles. With a single bump, the app is able to see if you share any mutual friends. Bump also has even more Facebook integration, allowing you to send a a notification to yourself and publish a status update to your news feed when you bump someone. Finally, Bump now allows you to see who, when, where, and what information you have shared via the History tab. You can simply scroll through the list of bumps, or you can search by name, date, or location. Bump for Android is still new to the game, so it only contains the same features as v1.1 for the iPhone and iPod touch, but you can still bump contact information and attachments cross-platform. This opens up a whole new world for Bump users since not everyone shares our same love for the iPhone and iPod touch. Hopefully Bump Technologies further expands their reach to even more platforms in the near future. [via TechCrunch]
