Put Poynt in Your Pocket

Poynt is an award-winning, all-in-one, free local search application that connects you to businesses, movie theaters, restaurants, people, retailers, events, gas prices, and local weather anytime, anywhere. Think of Poynt as a mobile version of your local phonebook with maps.

Get Your Poynt On

From inspiration to action, Poynt helps transform your mobile device into an entertainment and utility tool. Poynt's unique approach to local search doesn't stop with discovery of local businesses. Poynt goes a step further and allows you to do more with that business or service whether it's placing a call, mapping directions, viewing show times and movie trailers at a local theatre, buying movie tickets, or reserving a table at a local restaurant.

Movies and More

Poynt enables you to add a Top Ten Movie widget to your home screen for quick access to previews, film synopses, and local movie times and locations. You can even watch the movie trailer without leaving the app. Use the voice-activation feature to search restaurants for the perfect dinner and a movie night.

So Easy to Use

Because Poynt provides seamless device integration and offers a unified experience, it's extremely easy to use. GPS and Wi-Fi capabilities mean that you don't have to enter your search location; finding the nearest theatre or restaurant is as easy as one click. If you want to search from a different location, you can simply select any location you choose.

Planning to Meet Up With Friends?

Easy access to reviews, trailers, and show times makes planning your evening quick and easy. Once you have selected your restaurant and movie time, book your reservation and movie tickets through Poynt and send all the details to your friends without exiting the application. With Poynt, you are the social director for the evening.

Beat the High Cost of Gas

Think of Poynt as your personal price-checker. Find gas stations near you, search for the best prices by grade, call the gas station, or email the details to your friends--without ever leaving the app. You can also map the route to the best gas prices with Poynt.

With Poynt in your pocket, you'll have more time in the day to do the things you like.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great with ONE Big Flaw October 5, 2011
I have had this app for about 2 years now-- and it is great. I have used it MANY times with much success. I love the way it works and the options it provides.

HOWEVER-- if I were to leave it at that, I would be doing you a disservice. Poynt's one major flaw is that is that there is no easy way to report a location as incorrect. IE: 2 years ago now a restaurant closed down nearby yet it still is on Poynt. IE: It shows a popular sandwich shop in the middle of a neighborhood where one does not exist and never has. IE: It gave me incorrect directions to a major retail store... the address was WAY off and I drove quite out of my way in a city I was unfamiliar with. This has happened many times to me and it can be REALLY frustrating.

I have to knock off 2 stars for that downfall because it really effects my trust in Poynt's app. If there was a way to report these incorrect places from the app, I would GLADLY do so. I realize that they use online yellow pages to compile their info, but I know users could be extremely useful in verifying locations-- I would happily push a "I reached this destination" button everytime I get directions.

Amazon appstore wants me to "update" my copy of Poynt with a version older than what's already installed on my phone from the Android Market. Amazon, update YOUR copy!

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed October 17, 2013
By Bugsy
Verified Purchase
It used to function better then Google. now it is worthless. If you want to search for a specific business it will give you everything in the category even though there is a search function to search this way. Little Caesar's should only produce results for little Caesar's. If I wanted all fast food I would search by cuisine.

It has everything you need in terms of finding movies, food, gas prices etc. Even local shops are listed if you forgot a number to your favorite sandwich place. It's indispensable.
