Get To The Poynt, The Updated Poynt v1.5.3.14

February 23, 2010 | By | 9 Comments

Thomas was kind enough to alert us about the Poynt update, and I meant to post it up last night, my apologies at being late. Poynt is a favorite of ours’ and if you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out. It’s free, it’s useful, and it’s great in pointing you in the right direction no matter where you want to go. What’s new?

Well there’s a few noticeable new improvements, here’s what’s been noticed so far:

  • In Options & Settings you can see Navigation to which you can set to BlackBerry Maps
  • In Options & Settings you can see Reverse Carousel Axis
  • You now are able to turn the weather option on or off.
  • And there are date/time stamps for fuel prices.

So what is the Poynt? Here is the description:

Poynt is a free, all-in-one local search application for your BlackBerry® smartphone.
Move beyond discovering your local area and begin connecting with the local businesses, retailers and events that are important to you. View your search results on an interactive map, get driving directions, see showtimes, watch movie trailers and buy tickets – all in one application.
Finally – relevant, accurate local search results – available instantly on your mobile device!

At last, an easy to-use, all-in-one tool to connect you with local businesses, retailers and events while you’re on the go.

Think of Poynt as a mobile version of your local Superpages or Yellow Pages that comes complete with maps – so you can pinpoint nearby businesses, get contact info… and find out how to get there.

  • Available for BlackBerry® smartphones
  • Simple Over The Air (OTA) download at http://m.mypoynt.com
  • Absolutely free to add and use*
  • Use cell-site location, GPS or manual entry to search around your location
  • Customize your search settings with favorite and frequently searched locations

Think of Poynt as a movie guide at your fingertips, complete with show times, theater listings, plot summaries and trailers.

Think of Poynt as your personal box office as you buy movie tickets instantly!

  • Search by title, theatre and genre
  • Listings include showtimes, ratings and genre
  • Listed in order of theaters closest to your search location
  • Maps and driving directions available
  • Watch the movie trailer without leaving Poynt

No local search tool gives you more relevant, more accurate results! All in one tool. All available on your mobile smartphone.

I use Poynt for so much, as a reverse lookup (it integrates with your phone), for looking at movies and ratings, for finding businesses and restaurants. It’s just a really neat all in one app.

If you’re interested in Poynt, the best place to get the current version for now is through the BlackBerry App World.  Poynt’s site does not have the current version as of now.
