Todd, one of our writers here at BerryReview, brought this press release to our attention:
Poynt’s restaurant search feature rounds out the already robust business, movie and people search offering, while maintaining its ease of use and outstanding graphical user interface. The section features enhanced restaurant listings and enables users to easily find nearby restaurants, read reviews and book dining reservations. To enhance the user’s experience, icons are displayed when restaurant reviews or dining reservations are available for a restaurant listing.
With more restaurants to search, the added functionality of restaurant reviews and the ability to book a reservation will satisfy a large segment of our customer base. Once in the restaurant section, Poynt’s customers are offered three ways to search: Restaurants Near Me, Restaurants By Name and Restaurants By Cuisine.
Features that users have come to expect such as click-to-call, mapping, driving directions, integration with BlackBerry® Calendar, BlackBerry® Contacts and BlackBerry® Messages are all standard within the new restaurant module. As with the existing sections, all search results are based on the consumer’s location – whether acquired by GPS or cell-site, or manually entered – and are sorted by distance.
Poynt is a free** application and is available for the BlackBerry® Pearl™ and BlackBerry® Curve™ series smartphones, as well as the BlackBerry® Bold™, BlackBerry® Storm™ and BlackBerry® Tour™ smartphones and takes advantage of capabilities including locates by GPS* and cell-site, click-to-call, click-to-map and click-to-browse- website. Poynt is available to BlackBerry smartphone owners in Canada, the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom. The latest version of Poynt is available for download on BlackBerry App World™ (www.blackberry.com/appworld) or by visiting http://m.mypoynt.com from your BlackBerry® Browser.
