bump

When the Bump application was first released awhile back, it became a craze and people were bumping their phones together all the time sending over photos and other things. Now apparently, both the iOS and the Android version of the application have received an update that will allow users to transfer photos to their computers with just a “fist-bump like” bump.

With the latest update, Bump indicates that users have to go to its new website www.bu.mp and after selecting which photos you want transferred, you just have to ‘bump’ your smartphone against your spacebar and lo and behold your photos will transfer online after which you can choose to download them to your hard drive or share them using a shortened URL.

While this endeavor sounds impressive, I personally gave it a try on my Android smartphone and after nearly causing my device some injury, I gave up without seeing any results. I personally have never understood how Bump really works except for the fact that it uses GPS but with the latest update bringing a feature like this to users, it could prove to be successful especially since no cables are required.

I am putting my previous attempt at the new feature down to my own incapability, so I will I leave it in your hands. Do let us know if you’ve given it a try and how it went with a comment below.
