Here’s another awesome iOS and Android app! It’s called Bump. This app allows you to share information by “bumping” your smartphone with your friend’s smartphone. And it recently got its 50 millionth download.
The information you can share includes contact information, photos, music, games, text messages, other apps, calendars, and more.
Bump is currently the seventh most popular iOS app of all time in the US. In Japan it’s the third most popular app of all time.
Here are the top 5 songs shared using Bump in September:
1. Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”
2. LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem”
3. Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro”
4. Ed Sheeran’s “The A Team”
5. Bruno Mars’ “The Lazy Song”
One of the coolest things you can do with this app is free messaging with friends. Just get your friends to download the app (which is free) and start sending messages for free! This could be a good free alternative to text messaging.
Just remember you only need to touch phones to share information with Bump. No need to punch your friends!
