I am an iPhone user and I take lots of pictures. I take pictures of my children. I take pictures of my organizing projects. I take pictures of things I’m selling on Craigslist. I take pictures of things I think will work for clients. I take pictures of things I think are beautiful. Lots. I share those from my phone on facebook or instagram but I always want them on my computer too. There are many many ways to do that but one way that I found is especially helpful when taking pictures of things to sell or blog about is a great app called Bump.
From Bump’s website:
Q. How does Bump work?
There are two parts to Bump: the app running on your device and a smart matching algorithm running on our servers in the cloud. The app on your phone uses the phone’s sensors to literally “feel” the bump, and it sends that info up to the cloud. The matching algorithm listens to the bumps from phones around the world and pairs up phones that felt the same bump. Then we just route information between the two phones in each pair.
Basically for you and me that means that if I have a photo on my phone and I bump you while you have the app open…we can share photos. But the better part is that if I bump my space bar while the bump website is open…it will transfer my photos to the computer. It’s very cool…at least to this techie girl it is very cool.
What would you use Bump for?
