Review: MyPoynt Beta
Once upon a time we had two notable applications like Berry411 and InfoSpace Find It that in their time we’re pretty good but as they say technology, technology, technology is always improving, the aforementioned applications are the dinosaurs of that era, now we have a new kid on the block and this kid is packing a “mean punch” its called MyPoynt, noticed the play on letters, I thought it was original, here’s a shot of how it looks on my Dimension L-theme in OS 4.5 Guys this application is FREEEEEEEEE
Check out the announcement page here: http://mypoynt.com/getpoynt/blackberry.cfm
Notice the cool icon, pretty nice, now when we first click the icon this is the first screen
then this is the 2nd screen, eye candy galore.
Above are all the main icons on Mypoynt notice the Yellow Pages, Movies, and yes Directions, its all very well laid out, great icons I reiterate one more time and let’s face it, it looks great. Notice the green icon on the top right, this dot represents your connected GPS location in Mypoynt, pretty cool, if the dot is red it means it still has not found your location.
Here we’ll type something, Winn Dixie is a Florida supermarket chain, just type your search in that line and click the trackball and that’s the image you’ll see.
You’ll get your result and checkout the menu corresponding to that result you can call, map route, map listing, map all, SEARCH FROM HERE – this is super awesome and so on. When you Map List it the search, guess what mapping application opens, BB Maps, isn’t that innovative, I think its awesome, why give us another mediocre built in map application when we have BB Maps
Then if you’re familiar with BB Maps you know you have a multitude of options
Here is the movie icon, once you click you’ll see this and just follow along to get all your pertinent information and yes even buy your movie tickets through MyPoynt, pretty darn cool and very efficient.
Then finally the Direction icon
I give this application two thumbs up because it deserve this and more, I spoke to the yesterday and they mentioned that their search speed will increase soon, but guys, their search speed is already faster than anything out there eg. Windows Live Search, Yahoo Go 3.0 and others, this application is by far the fastest. So point your blackberry browser to http://m.mypoynt.com/ and go find things, I’m sure you won’t regret.
