Free Location Based Search, Poynt Has Been Updated

For those of you who are already using Poynt, this isn't huge news. But I always like to stay on top of the latest updates and releases for my favorite apps. Poynt is in my top 5 for sure. The movies search is great and I also like the reverse lookup feature that allows you to lookup who called you using just a phone number.

The weather is integrated on the home screen and the mapping has been updated to support Google maps. Here are a few changes in this release:
  • Navigation (as opposed to map only) from current location to destination using BlackBerry Maps or Google Maps
  • Date/time stamps for fuel prices (works in US only)
  • Ability to turn weather on/off
  • New interface (released for non-touchscreen devices with v1.5.2.36) now available for Storm/Storm2 (according to another forum post)
You can get the latest release at App World or OTA directly from their site here: http://m.mypoynt.com/ota
