Who needs business cards anymore? Bump 2.0 was just released for the iPhone, making it extremely simple to exchange information with another user … just by bumping your phone!
The version 2.0 of the app features an updated interface and the ability to instantly connect on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. You can also share photos, contacts and calendar events.
The app works by using your phone’s location and accelerometer features. When the app is running and you shake your phone, Bump searches for another phone that is also being shaken. When it finds a match, the app assumes you want to exchange contact info and pushes your user IDs!
We certainly have come a long way from business card scanners. I’m definitely downloading it for my conference this week (especially since I forgot to order new business cards). I just hope that other people have the app installed.
