Bump Technologies Launches App For Android

Bump Technologies has taken their popular iPhone application in which users exchange contact information simply by bumping phones and ported it over to the Android operating system. As the application launches on the Android today, a new version was just approved on the Apple App Store too.

The updated version has a feature called “Friend Compare” which looks at the address book of both phones and both of your Facebook profiles to see if you have mutual friends. When bumping each other’s phones, you can also automatically update your Facebook profile too. The Android version won’t have the Facebook integration yet, but it can be expected in future versions.

Bump has about $3 million in funding from Sequoia Capital. If you have used the Bump app, let us know what you think of it in the comments. Do you think it would do as well on the Android as it did on the iPhone?
