googleknocksoffbump1Google has bumped off Bump. The photo, contact, and file-sharing service will close its doors at the end of the month, Bump CEO and co-founder David Lieb said on Tuesday.

Bump and its companion app for sharing photo albums, Flock, were purchased by Google in September. Bump’s innovations and patents were likely a major reason that Google purchased the company, so although Bump is closing, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the tech show up in other Google services.
