Bump is awesome!

I got a new phone! But I'll tell you about that later. 

For now, I want to tell you about Bump.

Bump is primarily known for its intended purpose--exchanging contact information via Near Field Communication. I have yet to use it for its intended purpose, but I'm sure it's fine for that.

I've been using it to transfer photos off of my phone, and it's SO EASY.  Like, EFFORTLESSLY EASY.  I'm in awe.

You just go to bu.mp on your laptop, then open the Bump app on your phone. You go to the photos tab in the app, then select a bunch of pictures. I recommend you try 15-20 at a time. I tried 111 at a time, and that didn't work wonderfully.


Once you've selected all your photos, you just tap your computer's spacebar with your phone. Then, your photos sync to the BUMP website, and from there, you can trivially download them onto your computer. AWESOME!
