In this day and age, with development and advancement in smart phone technology has gone through the roof, you can do things that you only once thought of doing. Sharing data was between two phones either required cables or Bluetooth, but now with the advancement in technology you can bump your handheld device with someone else’s to share the desired data. The app for that is actually called Bump, which allows you to send information, and all it requires is a Wi-Fi connection or a carrier signal.

For example, iPhone and Android phones without a cellular signal or data plan, can share data, as long as both devices are within the range of a wireless network.
