Google announced weeks ago that it had acquired Bump, the company that released an Android and iPhone app capable of sharing photos or contacts by tapping two phones together. Today, Bump has announced plans to officially shut down the product.

Bump users have until the end of the month to export any data that they wish to keep from the app. After January 31, Bump for Android and iOS will cease working and all stored data will be deleted. The same is true of Flock, the less popular group photo album the company developed. Users can follow the in-app instructions to export their information.

All attention from the Bump team will now be turned to their work at Google. Bump CEO and founder Dave Lieb announced the change by saying:

Bump was a revolutionary product that inspired many subsequent advances and helped push the world forward. We hope our new creations at Google will do the same.
