Here is a cool app that has just been release for all of us blackberry lovers. I am really liking this application it works faster than live search and has great navigation. The application takes advantage of the GPS equipped blackberry to give you information and click to call map and view. From your BlackBerry web browser, go to http://m.mypoynt.com.
Poynt, a free, all-in-one local search tool, connects consumers to retailers and theaters at the moment they want to buy or acquire products or services. By entering search terms, the consumer is able to find businesses and movies near their location, get phone and address information as well as enhanced data such as interactive maps and movie reviews and the ability to purchase movie tickets.
“We’ve received an overwhelming response from everyone we’ve demonstrated the application to,” said John Lowe, CEO, Multiplied Media. “The application is far more intuitive than using a web browser on a mobile device.”
Poynt’s BlackBerry application takes advantage of the smart phone’s robust capabilities including locates by GPS and IP detection, click-to-call, click-to-map and click-to-view-website functions.
The beta application is currently available in North America with commercial deployment expected to follow once appropriate distribution agreements have been entered into.
Agreements signed with t-info and Infobel in Europe include distribution of their local search data via the BlackBerry. As such, the application is expected to be available in Europe during the fall of 2008 once integration of their data is complete.
