Poynt local search application now available in the UK

Poynt is a great app that you can use daily. When we took a look at the app at WES 2009, we saw a ton of cool features, many of which have not yet launched but should be unofficially coming this summer (just a guess). Currently, you can search local businesses, people and movie theaters. Soon, you’ll have access to a complete restaurant search and booking service powered by Open Table.

Other features include:

  • GPS functionality has been optimized to provide faster accurate locates.
  • Cell-site locates allow Poynt to quickly access a user’s general location while awaiting a GPS lock.
  • Poynt is fully integrated with both BlackBerry Maps and Google Maps.
  • Poynt integrates with Gokivo Navigator to provide turn-by-turn voice navigation.
  • Users can add frequently accessed listings to their BlackBerry Contact List, providing convenience for future lookups.
  • Poynt is a free app and it’s available by hitting m.mypoynt.com from your BlackBerry browser.
