Bump Updates App for Mobile to PC File Sharing
Bump today launched an updated version of its contact and file sharing app for iOS and Android that enables the apps to interact with the company's web version of Bump at http://bu.mp.
In a blog post on the company's website the company explains that the new functionality wil allow everything users had previously bumped between phones to now be bumped to and from any computer in the world. Photos, videos, contacts, files are all "bumpable."
"No one ever says 'I sure look forward to syncing my phone with my computer!"'. We want to change that. Because really, it's the year 2013 -- we have self-driving cars, private space exploration, 3d printers -- but most folks have a hard time getting a video taken on their phone over to their laptop," the company wrote in the blog.
Bump launched the web version of Bump 9 months ago, initially only supporting photos, and only in one direction, from phones to computers.
The company said that the number of daily users of http://bu.mp has grown 50 percent in the last two months alone and now represents a small but significant fraction of overall Bump usage.
The new apps are available for free at the Apple App Store, and Google Play for free.
