The days of manually typing someone’s details onto your phone are over. Bump has arrived!

Bump is a new application for Android and iPhones and people everywhere have started using it to get to know each other. Exchanging contact information, sharing photos, and even become friends on Facebook, has never been this easy.

The demonstration in this video shows just how simple it is to use. It’s like a cool gadget from a James Bond movie.

The Bump app uses the phone’s sensors to feel the bump, then it sends the information into the cloud. The algorithm on Bump’s website detects bumps from phones around the world and pairs up the phones that felt similar bumps. As soon as users confirm that they’ve bumped phones with someone else the information will be exchanged.

Two people who Bump each other don’t have to be using the same device. An iPod Touch can Bump an Android but, only a few phones have sensors in them required to detect the bumps you make.

Soon all phones will include these sensors and when that happens, the folks at Bump plan to have an application available. Soon no one will ever have to manually enter contact information again.

Do you think Bump will revolutionize the way we use phones? Let us know your thoughts by posting a comment below.
