Fist Bump Your iPhones To Add A Friend To Facebook Or Twitter

I’ve always liked the idea of Bump: instead of trading contact details with someone by typing it all in, why not just pull out your iPhone and bump them together and have all the relevant details automagically traded between devices?

In reality, Bump’s main problem is that Apple hasn’t bought them and baked them into the core of iOS. I have Bump on my iPhone, but it’s not often I meet anyone else with it, which means I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been able to trade contact info with someone with a totally awesome fist bump.

Still, if you hang out with more Bump-centric circles than I, you may well want to know that the latest update added the ability to add a Bumpee as a social network contact on Twitter or Facebook.

    Everyone should have Bump by default, like bluetooth, as a feature not a product, I had bump, but who wants to stand there and ask if someone has bump?

    what’s bump you ask? why it’s this app.. you know what nevermind…

    Plus it doesn’t work when you’re out of coverage, you need this when you are piss drunk in a bar with low reception and you can’t type!
