Say what you want about Apple but they'd never do something like this:

Good ad. I like the action photo feature idea.

Have you seen people in the wild use the bump-to-share feature? It's a clever idea, but is it used?

I've never seen it used personally.   The most useful thing the ad pointed out to me was the "you don't have to touch the phone if your hands are dirty/greasy" feature.

I never used the bump/NFC feature (on my GS3) either -- nor my wife on her GN2 AFAIK, but the idea itself is apparently popular enough to spawn a fairly popular cross-platform app called Bump that my father seems to love and got me to try a while.

The Android version of Bump has 10M-plus downloads w/ 83K-plus ratings on the Google Play store although the company seems to claim 100M-plus downloads worldwide across all platforms.

This harkens me back to the whole Monica/Bill thing...

 

In this day and age of disposable "media", in another 100 years...will there be anything to show anybody?

 

I know Facebook keeps everything "forever"...but one day Facebook will end...what happens to all those pictures?

 

But back to Monica/Bill...there was only one photog in all of Washington DC that had a "public" picture of Bill having actually met Monica. He only had it cause he shot on film.

Bump has been out for several years on the iPhone. I got it straight off when I got my iPhone4....and never used it.

Tracks with the premise of the OP:

But I wouldn't say the market necessarily chose it, the marketers have.
