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:


Step 4: Confirm the transfer, and now your friend’s profile is saved in your Contacts. It’s that easy!


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!
