In response to Apple's acquisition of AirDrop, Google today formalized the purchase of the Bump data sharing application. As BumpYou can share contact information, photos, videos and files simply by bumping two phones. Just open the app on two devices and lightly bump your hands, "tapping" one device on the other.
In a blog post, the company's CEO confirmed the news and said he was happy with the sale. We couldn't be happier than joining Google, a company that shares our belief that the application of computing to difficult problems can fundamentally change the way we relate to each other and the world, Lieb said. The value of the sale was not disclosed, but a source close to the company told Allthingsd that the value should be close to $ 30 million.
After raising about $ 20 million in capital and becoming one of the most downloaded apps of all time, with over 100 million downloads, Bump was still looking for its best monetization model. Now, as part of Google, it is possible that application functionality can be incorporated into Android, although Google has not yet confirmed which team Bump is added to.
