Bump is a world renown data sharing application that has just been bought out by tech giant, Google.
Google is actually responsible for an average of one purchase per week dating back from 2010. Although it would be a great pay day for the original developer, the fact of the matter is that most of the acquisitions are just too small to become big news. This is one that easily falls into the ‘other’ pile; a pile full of already big time apps.
What does bump do?
I mentioned, it’s data sharing, and in a nutshell, that’s all it is. What makes it so great is that it’s sharing information between friends, between devices made easy. After saying that much, I’m sure you can image the possibilities. And that’s about how big it is too, it currently holds as one of the most popular — if not the most popular — form of data sharing by the way of an app.
Bump does have its limitations, however. You can only use Bump if you are running Android or iOS. That still makes up for the vast majority of mobile users, but people on the Blackberry and others like Ubuntu will miss out for now. That could all be about to change, though, now that Google has gotten its hands on the application.
Bump originally started out for iOS only and was reduced to nothing more than contact sharing. After its success, the company expanded to the point where it was almost limitless in terms of what it could share. They then saw the potential with Android and decided to open it up for it also. A move that obviously paid great dividends now that it has been bought out by Google, who also own Android.
