My new favorite iPhone app – Bump #blogher

Let’s say that you’re hanging out in your office one day when all of a sudden you spy one of your oldest friends.

After a passionate kiss, you decide to exchange contact information, but you don’t have any business cards.

Whatever shall you do? Don’t fear, Bump is here for iPhones! Bump is a quick, easy way to share contact information with any other iPhone user with the Bump app installed. It’s free, so download it, install it, and you’re ready to go.

Step 1: Open Bump and either create your profile or select an existing one. Save your settings and wait for a friend to show up so you can Bump them!

Step 2: When you meet someone to Bump, just open the Bump app on your iPhone:

Step 3: Wait for the app to notify you that it’s ready, then Bump with your friend:

If you’re going to BlogHer in four days, and you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, I want to Bump you until you’re sore. Be ready.

      1. @Avitable, I’m gonna be at the zoo and at the IMAX and at restaurants and partying my 35-y-o ass off in Queens/Manhattan. How are you going to give me two-armed hugs from Chicago?

          1. @Avitable, I will accept a video made on my birthday of you hugging someone who looks like me or whose name is the same as mine, then a direct look into the camera to say, “Happy Birthday, Poppy!” That works.

  1. Well since crotch bumping isn’t mandatory, why bother?

    Alas, I am technology less. I have a VIRGIN mobile phone, because um…that’s the only virgin I gots, ya’ll. ;D

      1. @Avitable, Heh…I have a reallllly old one. They don’t even make it anymore I don’t think. It’s the VOX 8610. Methinks it’s time to update.

  2. I’ve had the app installed since it was released because it sounded so cool. To date I have found nobody with whom I can bump. I’ll be sure to bump you when I show up for Avitaween.

  3. I must admit, I’d not heard of this app until I read it here. And I try to keep up with these things!!! As soon as I read this post (reading in bed, using my iPhone..Google Reader Mobile, natch) I downloaded the app. Then I commandeered the huz’s phone so I could “bump” him in bed. Niiiiice.

    Now how do we get the rest of the world to catch on?

  4. Okay I am coming out of hiding. I am officially deflowering myself in your comments. Fearing that I may be one of those mommy bloggers you blast I have never commented (Dear God Please Give Me Favor With Avitable). However, you and I seem to be on the same page about some things I figure I have that going for me if nothing else.

    *A mental insert: Although it is totally tempting to wish for a bash post here about yourself, I could totally market an “Avitable Bashed Me and Made Me Famous” something or other.

    Back to the original point of my comment. I just found out about this bumping last night. Now I feel complete and maybe a little dirty. I can be bumped and poked all weekend at BlogHer. It will be especially fun if I get to go back and blog “I was bumped by Avitable”. Regardless I do so look forward to meeting you this weekend.

      1. @Avitable, I did read the post all the way through… but if an iPodTouch and an iPod Touch bump, how do they swap the info if there is no wi-fi? That’s really what I was wondering… trying to figure out how that would work… damn not explaining reviewer!
