In Honor of National Fist Bump Day... It's As Easy as 1..2..3..Bump

In honor of National Fist Bump Day, what better way to celebrate then with a little iPhone Bump?

The other day, I went to a friend's BBQ and met some new people. As we were making plans to meet up later, they started typing my contact information into their iPhone. That's when I showed them the Bump application.

Bump™ makes swapping contact information as simple as bumping two phones together. No typing, no searching a list for the right person, no shaking your phone, no modem noises, no mistakes.

Why its breakthrough: How many times have you lost an important business card or couldn't find a pen? Now you can transfer and store contact info with just a quick bump. Contact information is saved directly into your address book. Perfect for business or personal use. Best of all? Its free.

Founded by David Lieb, Andy Huibers, and Jake Mintz, Bump Technologies created a universal interface for device-to-device communication. Now you can exchange your phone number and contact information with others by simply bumping two phones together. Soon you will be able to send photos the same way. The process is simple:

1) Open BumpTM on both phones
2) While holding the phones, gently bump your hands together
3) Confirm the exchange

Just like that, contact info is passed in a secure, accurate way.

So celebrate National Fist Bump Day with a little iPhone Bump of your own.
