>Exchange Data Between Smartphones with Free Bump App.

Posted by drneelesh on January 6, 2011

Smartphones have almost become ubiquitous amongst the physicians and other healthcare providers. They all work within a small niche and often need to pass data/information between themselves. Now a free application called Bump lets individuals using smartphones ( whether iPhones or Android phones) easily share contacts and links to Facebook too!

Setting up Bump :
1) Make sure that the person you want to connect with is in your address book, and that you both have the latest version of Bump installed on your devices.
2) Fill out your email address and/or phone number, and have your friends do the same. This information will help Bump identify who you want to connect with. 
3) Select ‘Yes’ when Bump asks permission to have access to your address book.
4) If you are friends on Facebook, you and your friends can sign into your accounts within Bump which will also help in the matching process.
Once this is done Bump will generate a list of people that you will be able to instantly connect with simply by clicking the green check mark next to their names, and voil√†! You’re connected and able to send all kinds of stuff back and forth for free.


You can download the app here from the iTunes store.

Also see a whole list of other apps using the Bump API to bump-share songs, wine lists, play games and pay bills.

Credit is provided under the Internet Point of Care CME rules by the Lippincott CME Institute, Inc.

This app is available through the iPhone AppStore. The application and first use is free. Thereafter One will be charged an introductory price of $4.99 for each completed learning activity.
