Good news for all those who have using Bump for quite a while now.

Per reports, the Bump app for Android and iOS has been updated by the developers, expanding the app with a set of brand new features to make the app more user-friendly.

The developers have now made the Web version of Bump to be universally compatible with Bump on iOS and Android. This means that now everything that can be bumped between phones, now also works both to and from any computer in the world, and this includes photos, videos, contacts, files, and more.

Moreover, users won't even need a setup for this, and will just need to go to the official Web site on the computer, open Bump on phone, and press the spacebar key. This makes Bump a sort of an unlimited USB flash drive that users can carry with them always when on the move.

The best part about the new update is that users can bump a wider variety of files beyond just photos from their phone straight to their computer. The app will now pull up a file browser-style window to let users pick things of their choice to send.

"No one ever says 'I sure look forward to syncing my phone with my computer!'. We want to change that. Because really, it's the year 2013 -- we have self-driving cars, private space exploration, 3d printers -- but most folks have a hard time getting a video taken on their phone over to their laptop," the official page states.

"And who doesn't have a slight twinge of anxiety each time they press 'sync' that the contacts on their phone will be overwritten with outdated contacts on their computer? It should be cognitively simpler."

Another great feature arriving with the update is the option of two-way syncing that allows users to send files from their computer to their phone and not just from the phone to the computer.

The files that are transferred from the computer get saved in the Bump app itself for iOS or in a specific Bump folder in the SD card for Android.

The Web version of Bump first launched nine months ago, and at time it only supported photos, and worked only in one direction - from phones to computers.
