That’s why we couldn’t resist sharing one of our favorite products that will get you places and is always available FREE. Poynt replaced many conventional items making a smartphone even smarter & a super app truly superior.

Poynt is available on practically every smartphone on the market today including the PlayBook tablets. We’d like to think our readers only use BlackBerry Smartphones but just in case your poison is a different flavor or 2nd smartphone is an iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 7 or Nokia device.
Let’s looks at the options you have inside most Poynt applications..
° Events (Canada, U.K. & U.S. only) – Search events or venues within a specific radius with this category. I typed in “Halloween” and came up with a slew (20) of treats for the next few days. One of the biggest in Reno is the Reno Zombie Crawl. Or a Comedic Murder Mystery Party (seen above), Tipsy Gypsy Ball, Special Halloween Storytime and that’s just in my area. Search in yours to find event more tricks or treats!
° Businesses – This is a bit more obvious. Here you can search for specific businesses or even a range of places. I searched for costumes and was pleasantly surprised at the results. Naturally most people would think “costume shop” for Halloween, or might not realize that many places offer rentals, there’s consignment shops, thrift shops and much more! So in case you think you’ve waited too long, there’s still a lot out there.
° Movies – Movies! I love to watch movies. At home, in the theaters and just about anywhere. Behind BlackBerry/tech films are my next passion. The movie Halloween (1978) was released in theaters the day I was born. Oddly is also my favorite horror film of all times. But I’m a fan. I love even the cheesy campy films that come out of Hollywood every year around this time.Your destination for Halloween should be the horror section in genres!
° Restaurants – Want a bit to eat between events? You’ll find everything in your area and more under the restaurants tab in Poynt. And don’t forget with features like the PlayBook to BlackBerry smartphone pairing you can easily send a contact, a map, a phone call straight to your smartphone using Poynt! I’ve come to love these features.
° People – Here’s a great place to find phone numbers, directions to friends houses, designated drivers might want to map out the trip for getting people home safely after a zombie pub crawl. Another one of my favorite features can be found here, the reverse lookup. Search a phone number or address with Reverse Lookup.
° Gas Prices (U.S. only) – While this feature is only available to residents of the US, it’s been one of the best resources for saving money on premium gasoline. Users can even break it down by gasoline type: regular, mid-grade, premium, e-85 & bio-diesel are all optional.
° Weather – Weather conditions on the go! Yes that’s a winning slogan. And the weather is provided by AccuWeather. A great source for reliable forecasts, radar, and more.
° Offers (New) – This is a wonderful new feature. Maybe not available in all areas but already you’ll be finding great offers here without even knowing you wanted them. My girl and I recently used one of the features here to save on breakfast. I check it everyday for coupons and savings I wouldn’t find otherwise.
