App makes sharing personal info dangerously easy.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Bump's new profile option is very handy. Instead of having to check off multiple items, now you can just pick a profile created earlier. For instance, "Work Info" could contain just your office phone number and address. Swaps take about 1 seconds. Later, use the history tool to see who you bumped when and where.

Is It Any Good?
The days of jotting phone numbers down on scraps of paper may soon be over. This nifty little app lets owners of iPhones swap info simply by touching phones. Contact information, such as phone number, email, and street address, is saved directly into the address book, and photos are saved directly into the camera roll. The app has a built-in safety feature: you have to manually check off a piece of contact info, say your home number, before it will swap. But it's still a bad idea for kids, especially younger teens.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
