Bump has long been high up on the Life of Android wall of ‘Really Useful Apps’, gaining a massive 9.6 rating in our review here. Well, the app that lets you wirelessly transfer contacts and photos between smartphones by simply – and quite literally – just bumping them together has revealed a whole new trick from up its sociable sleeve: direct PC transfer.
Physical USB hook up between devices are so 2011, so the latest addition to Bump is seeking to help us do away with the technological shackles that bind us. Whilst the earlier Bump on Android allowed you to share all photos, contacts and app recommendations with other Bump-using Android phone-toters happy to do The Bump* with you, this fresh addition to the affable app now means you can send your phone-based photos directly to a desktop web browser, such as Safari, Chrome or Firefox, simply by opening up the Bump website at http://bu.mp website on your PC, launching the app on your Android, selecting the pics to ping and then bumping your smartphone against the spacebar of your PC’s keyboard.
A fittingly fruitful function that further enhances an already incredibly useful app, the benefits of Bump just keep coming on the bounce.
