Hands-on Video: Gogobeans App Trumps Bump for Sharing
Think of Gogobeans as Bump on steroids. Not only can you share a lot more stuff, you don’t even have to be in the same room as the other person. Actually, share is the wrong word. The company likes to say that you bounce content to people because it automatically gets added to their digital locker (storage is unlimited for now). One person shakes their Android or iPhone, then the other person does the same, and–boom–you’ve bounced stuff to your buddy. So what can you bounce?
Gogobeans says you can send anything from files, photos, music, web pages, contacts, or any content you have online to share. And you’re not eating up bandwidth either; when you shake your phone you’re just telling the service to provide an invite to share content that’s in your locker with others. As you’ll see in the demo, it took a few seconds for the initial bounce to work, but it’s easy to select stuff to bounce. The company told us that the Android and iPhone apps are imminent, and that it’s working on BlackBerry and Windows Phone versions.
