Use Bump To Instantly Share Contacts & Photos With Your Friends [iOS Tip]



Are you still emailing contact cards and photos to your friends? Did you know that you can transfer them instantly with a fist bump using the free Bump app? The best thing about Bump is it’s not just available on iOS, so you can use it to send contacts and images to friends on Android devices and other smartphones, too.

Here’s how to get started.

First, download the free Bump app from the App Store. You and your friend will both require the app to send and receive information between your devices, but it’s incredibly simply to set up, and well worth the effort.

Once installed, run the app and fill out your “card” with your personal information, or use an address book entry or your Facebook profile to fill it out automatically.

Now swipe over to the next page, where you’ll see the images you have stored on your device. Simply tap the images you’d like to share with your friends, and once you are done, bump both devices together to start sending them.

If you’d like to share contact information, simply swipe over the the third page and select which contacts you’d like to share from your address book. Once you’re done, it’s time to fist bump again.

Here’s a quick clip that shows just how easy it is to share content using Bump:

    I downloaded this when I first bought the 3GS, at the enthusiastic request of a friend. Haven’t used it since 2009.

    Why would anyone use this app? You can send contacts and photos via text messages. Also they just removed the ability to send apps and music, which was Bump’s best feature. How come that wasn’t mentioned in this article? Read the reviews for the latest update and you’ll understand why this is definitely not worth a blog post on here. It’s posts like this that make me think this is more of an advertisement than a genuine app recommendation.

    I’m sure it sounded good in theory when they came with is app years ago … But obviously it never caught on .

    This app was neat in 2009, and now it’s useless.
