We go hands on with Poynt for BlackBerry 10
Poynt has been a huge app for BlackBerry for many a year. We recently told you that it is now available for BlackBerry 10 (Z10 & Q10) and as a free download it really is one of those 'must have' apps on your device.
The app is currently an Android port but seems to work just fine for me. The only downside I can see is that when you select to view a location on a map it opens up Google Maps in the browser. It would be nicer with a native version so we can jump into BlackBerry Maps and have access to navigation if required.
But as you will see from the above video the app serves it purpose and serves it well.
