    I had this on my iPod touch 3g and it worked great with other ipods and iPhones. I wonder if bump will work with cross platforms, such as from a Droid to an iPhone.

    What are the odds that someone you don't already know has this installed when you meet them?

    Neat but kinda woorthless for the most part.

    assuming the other party has it installed as well. I guess the idea is really cool it's just not very practical for anyone not on a college campus

    From the BumpTechnologies.com FAQ:

    Q: Cool, but doesn't this only work between two iPhones?
    A: So far, we've only released BumpTM for iPhone and iPod Touch, yes. But we are working to bring BumpTM to many other platforms in the near future. Today, there are several other phones that include the sensors that BumpTM needs to feel bumps, but in the next few years, the vast majority of new phones will have these sensors. We plan to offer BumpTM on all of them, and BumpTM will work between any two of them.

    my bro and i just tried it, we both have droids, and it is a really cool piece of software, idk how useful it will be. we had to load the app, open it, then wait for it to be ready, and we have to have gps active on both our phones. then we bumped, which didnt work on the first try, and on the second we actually hit out two phones by the corners. then once it worked, it loaded for like 3 secs, asked if i wanted to connect to "blah ba blah", i said yes, then there was 3 more secs of loading, then finally the data transfered. it took more time then "hey whats your number? k ill call you so u have mine" done.

    But think how useful it would be in a LOUD nightclub or conference where you can barely hear the person.

    Just bust out your phone, show them bump and transfer contact information.

    Its an awesome proof of concept if nothing else.

    yes supposedly it will work across both platforms...so you can bump an iPhone user and it SHOULD work. I see that it didn't work for you though Miami : )

    Interesting to see other people report in about it.

    here's some info miami from another user.....

    just bumped with a Coworker with an iPhone. Worked flawlessley.

    One thing to note. I only have the My Contacts group visible on my Droid for my primary Google account. The Bump transferred contacts go to the primary account but not to the My Contacts group. I was not seeing the received contact until I told the Droid to show "All Contacts". I just went in and changed her to My Contacts and I don't need to see all those other contacts that I really don't want to see. But if you can't find a Bumped contact, check All contacts first.

    Where is that setting to show all contacts?

    I tried with a 1st Gen iPhone user. We connected he got my info and it says I got his but I don't see it anywhere. Not even when I go to gmail and check contacts.

    Bumping between Moto Droid and iPhone 3gs does work.

    Tried it the other day with my sister. So you can bump cross platforms.
