    A search method for finding local information on business and events

    • Good user interface design
    • Lots of reusability
    • Quick load up times
    • Missing movie theater
    • Where's the price categorization?
    • Broken weather location

    "When You Need Something, Just Poynt"


    Poynt represents a new way to get information for your area. It inegrates a search feature with a local business finding feature. Find out the weather, local movie times, and events in your area, all from the palm of your hand. Finding local listings is now a cinch.


    There are a lot of different features packed into Poynt. The events feature adds to reusability. The app loads up quickly and the user interface has a clean designs, with nice tiles spaced well. Menu navigation went smooth and by-the-numbers.


    There was a nearby movie theater missing from one of Poynt's listings. There should be an option to list establishments by price. The weather GPS locationing picked up the wrong city.

    I used to really enjoy this app however they've taken off the reverse number lookup option. This is no longer useful to me.. bummer!

    What happened to looking people up? I used that a lot. Someone called and I didn't know the number, I'd just punch in that number and it'd tell me where they were calling from and their service provider unless it was a landline.

    Been using this since my first BlackBerry. People search had been removed and so has the app.
