    Default Bump Now Lets Users "Share" Songs


    The latest version of Bump, the app that allows you to exchange contact information and photo libraries with other iPhone users, now lets you "share" music. Bump 2.2 supports song metadata transfers, to be precise, rather than the transmission of sound files. Your Bump contacts will get previews via links to iTunes (if available) for the songs you share, and can also browse YouTube hits for the tracks.

    In addition to sharing contacts and calendar events, the previous version of Bump allowed users to make friend requests on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn by bumping their phones together. The app doesn't actually transmit information directly from phone to phone, but rather relies on the GPS chip of each device and timestamps to allow Bump's servers to determine who bumped who. They also provide an API to developers who want to incorporate direct-connect services: PayPal's app uses Bump's technology to facilitate money transfers from one iPhone user's account to another.

    Bump co-founder and CEO David Lieb claims that "more than a million photos [are] shared every weekend" using their app, and expresses high hopes that users will be as eager to share song previews as well. "We think Bump is the simplest and easiest way to tell your friends about songs and artists you love, he says. Bump 2.2 is free on the App Store.

    Doesnt really let you "Share" songs. You can only listen to an excerpt and then it offers you the chance to download it over iTunes - how convenient lol ... for Apple that is.

    Ugh not as cool as an actual transfer of the song. I'm sure there's too many copyright infringements and stuff to go through. Hmmm.... I could see a tweak allowing this though.

    wouldnt be a bad thing if you were considering the song, you would know what version of the song to buy when you were ready
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    Haha same for me.

    Seems a complete waste of time IMO, how's it massively quicker than simply going to iTunes store and searching for a title?

    lol what a useless feature, if you are close enough to bump, you might as well just tell your friend the song title or just play it to them on your own phone

    Don't think so. How would they even incorporate that?
