Fresh Android Apps for Apr. 27: Bump update, Qik Video Connect

by Ian Black

In today’s fresh apps, get physical while sharing content from your phone (Bump) or look someone in the eye when you call them (Qik Video Connect).

Bump update (Free)

Do you know how to bump?

This app first launched for Android last year. It allows you to easily share photos, contacts, even apps just by bumping your Android against someone else’s. This major 2.0 release sports a brand new easy-to-use design, it’s much faster, and you can send multiple apps at one time.

With this new version, once you bump someone’s phone, you share a connection and can later send him or her photos, chat messages, contacts and apps anytime, anywhere.

Qik Video Connect (Free)

You don’t need Apple’s FaceTime to make video calls.

Qik Video Connect is a multi-platform video-calling app. This latest version allows for face-to-face talk between Android phones and iOS devices like the iPhone or iPad.  Better still, you can make the calls over Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G, and you can share live video to Facebook or Twitter.

During a trial until June 1, you can send video mail for free. After the trial is over, it will cost you an optional fee to send video mail but receiving it will continue to be free.
