    Its a big night for Bump Technologies, the mobile software startup that recently landed a round of funding led by Sequoia Capital. The company makes mobile apps that let users share their contact information (and other data) simply by tapping their phones together

    Is there anyone familiar with this feature or an app to support it. I know Motorola has Hardware for it and some devices such as the Zine support it.
    an app for this would be huge!

    Go to your local bar and "accidentally" bump your phone with some random hot chick.

    A quick heads up, if you try to set-up a contact card from Bump you might experience a force close (it does on the Hero), Bump is working on getting a fix out today or tomorrow.

    In the meantime go to Menu > Set-up > Select and select your contact information. You may have to add yourself to your phonebook as the default contact card doesn't appear as a choice.

    They may have taken it down until they fix the bug that causes it to crash.

    So this works via GPS right? I dont think the "bump" matters. I just put it on and someone else's contact information popped in asking if I wanted to exchange... I'm in my apartment so I'm not near anyone's droid.

    I'm familiar with this app on the iPhone. Too bad I don't know anyone else with a Droid let alone a Motorola phone.
