Default Google buys Bump data-sharing application, standalone app will stick around 'for now'

Data sharing / smartphone colliding app Bump is now a part of Google's happy family, according to a post written earlier today by CEO David Lieb. Not a ton of info on the acquisition is available at the moment, including just how much money changed hands and what devices needed to come in contact for such a transfer to take place. Lieb did add, however, that, "Bump and [Bump-owned photo app] Flock will continue to work as they always have for now." What, precisely, "for now" means, and how the deal will affect Bump usage on non-Android platforms, however, is hard to say.
