August 19, 2011 | By | Add a Comment

Poynt has been updated for the BlackBerry PlayBook, and there’s no changelog available at this time. BerryReview stated that a few users have noticed that events and gas have been included similar to the BlackBerry version, and the ability to purchase movie tickets. What’s Poynt?

The description is as follows:

Use Poynt to find businesses, retailers, people, restaurants, movies, gas prices (US only), events and weather information around you. Poynt uses GPS or cell-site location to quickly deliver the information you need, whenever and wherever you need it.

Poynt is free and available in Canada, the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain and is now available in Australia

Features include:

  • Find phone numbers, browse websites and map directions with one click
  • Reverse look-up missed calls from the BlackBerry® Call log
  • Plan a night out without exiting the application – find restaurants, read reviews and make dinner reservations (US/CA/UK only) then watch trailers, view showtimes and buy movie tickets (US/CA only) for a theatre near you or find a local event by venue, performer or nearby
  • BlackBerry® Messages notification of movie ticket receipts (US/CA only)
  • Add listings to your BlackBerry® Address Book, add movies, restaurants and events to your BlackBerry® Calendar, share listings with friends via email on your BlackBerry®
  • Integrated weather display changes based on the conditions around you, click to view 5-day forecast
  • Complete a search, then map a route using BlackBerry® Maps
  • Pair your PlayBook tablet with your BlackBerry smartphone to enable pushing calls, contacts and directions from your tablet to your smartphone
I love Poynt, it’s useful in finding restaurants, businesses, movies nearby including synopsis, and cheapest gas prices. It’s one of our favorite apps and with the ability to sync to the BlackBerry, it’s even better!
