Zoomer Apps: Social
By Carly Bumstead
Bump (Android/iPhone) Free
Why pay for printed business cards these days? Welcome, Bump, the digital business card—allowing you to exchange all contact info simply by tapping phones together. The wrinkle: Only works if your new contact also possesses the app, otherwise the process takes longer than exchanging a card.
Skype (iPhone/iPad/Android) Free
Communicating with travelling family members or grandchildren who are away for school has never been easier. Now you can make video calls on the go—for free! The wrinkle: No text chat during video calls on iPhone; no video on some older Androids.
Facebook (iPhone/Android/WP7) Free
Keep updated on your friends’ latest posts, wherever you are. Conveniently share mobile photos, update statuses and even use Facebook chat through this app.
Twitter (iPhone/iPad/Android/WP7) Free
Update, browse and retweet anywhere, at any time.
