I love Poynt and the things it can do. Reverse call lookup, restaurants, where to get the cheapest gas, movies, watch trailers, read ratings, read the synopsis, yellow pages, lookup, just about everything from one app including the current weather! It’s been a favorite app of mine and I use it quite a bit. The weather is current, the time of day or night and the background will reflect the time of day and the current weather condition. It also follows you so it’s always current in your area.
