Poynt was always one of my favorite apps on BlackBerry OS and for a while there, I was really beginning to wonder if they'd make the jump over to BlackBerry 10. Luckily, I don't have to wonder any more as the app has now arrived  in BlackBerry World via an Android port. If you're not familiar with Poynt, then you may not know exactly how valuable of an app it can be at times or the features it offers so here's a run down of its offerings for you.

  • Movies – search by theater, movie, top 10 or genre; add theaters to favorites; sort by name or rating; view trailers; view Rotten Tomatoes rankings; add to calendar; send details to contacts; buy movie tickets
  • Restaurants – Search by name, cuisine type or nearby; click-to-call; get directions; view website; view hours and prices; reserve a table
  • Gas Prices (US/UK/Canada ONLY) – view best prices by grade or stations nearby; click-to-call; get directions; view station amenities; send details to contacts
  • Events – search by category, venue, performer, event or nearby; get directions; send details to contacts; add events to calendar
  • People – lookup by name or reverse lookup by phone number or address; click-to-call; get directions; send details to contacts
  • Businesses – search by name; get directions; click to call; add  details to contacts - Offers (US ONLY)- Find Offers nearby or by keyword

As you can see, it's a pretty feature packed app and best of all, it's a free download. Hopefully, in the near future they'll be working on a native app but for now the Android version is working out just fine. You can grab it via the link below to get started. Keep in mind, it's a regional app and not available everywhere. Poynt is free and available in India, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and Germany.
