SORRY, this may be wrong place to ask but hey,…. has anyone out there try the bump it app from the market? I just tried it with an iPhone user. I have the droid. It works nice. But 1 thing. The contact seems to be somewhere else other than my contact list. But when I do a search, it pops up under the correspondning letter. I thought it may be that I synced my contacts using gmail. who knows. I just thought it was weird that bump it contacts is floating around somewhere on the Droid other than the contact list.
