What is the Bumping App for?
The Bumping App brings back the sense of community into our lives. It enables you to connect with people you can trust wherever you go, and get recommendations and information about places.
What does “Bump Me” do?
The “Bump Me” feature is like saying it’s ok for Bumpers to virtually bump into you when you’re out and about. Enabling “Bump Me” on a pod means that you will be notified when you come near a bump posted in the pod. Similarly, enabling “Bump Me” on a user means that you will be notified when you come near a bump posted by that user. You will only be notified once for a bump. (Coming to the location a second time would not notify you.)
How Can the Bumping App Help in the Fight Against COVID?
In Hong Kong only, the Bumping App can notify you when you are near a location that has a confirmed COVID case in the last 2 weeks. To activate this feature, simply join the “COVID Pod” and enable “Bump Me” on the pod!
Each day, the Bumping App loads case data from Hong Kong Government’s data source: http://www.chp.gov.hk/files/misc/building_list_eng.csv
