Google bought Bump, an app that share data

Google is obviously one of the top competitors in the mobile phone industry. They are always trying to find new and innovative ways to be ahead of the curve in making the user experience on Android better. One big step they took today to develop more with Android is buying a mobile app company called Bump.  This app allows for user to wirelessly share photos, files, videos, contacts and otehr content between phones.  Bump is a company that has only been around for 5 years but has an idea that is strong. Apple in iOS7 now has Airdrop which is very similar to what Bump does, with whoever is close with the same type of device, they can send files and other content without having to email it.  I bet Google will take this idea, expand upon it, and try to implement it with the rest of their services.
