Google has acquired Bump Technologies, the company behind the Bump and Flock sharing apps for iOS.

The announcement was made on the Bump blog this morning. No word yet on how much Google paid for the company.

We’re excited to announce that the Bump team is joining Google!

Our mission at Bump has always been to build the simplest tools for sharing the information you care about with other people and devices. We strive to create experiences that feel like magic, enabled behind the scene with innovations in math, data processing, and algorithms. So we couldn’t be more thrilled to join Google, a company that shares our belief that the application of computing to difficult problems can fundamentally change the way that we interact with one another and the world.

Bump and Flock will continue to work as they always have for now; stay tuned for future updates.

We’d like to extend a special thank you to all of you who have used our products so far. It continues to be a pleasure to serve you, and your feedback and evangelism inspire us every day.

David Lieb
CEO and cofounder

I installed this a long time ago but never used it since it's like social media, needs lots of people to make it useful. Hopefully Google will just incorporate it in their Google Now app so everybody has it. Once again Ape falls behind.
