Poynt can do more on a Blackberry Smart Phone. It can reverse look-up missed calls from the BlackBerry Call log. Share address book, watch What a Man movie online and other news with friends by email. When people get a PlayBook, they can sync PlayBook tablet with BlackBerry smartphone.
Everything you may need to look up can be found with this app.
Poynt doesn’t load properly when installed it to PlayBook while works great on the Blackberry smartphone. Can’t even type in a local address to get it working on PlayBook.
Need to improve the interface. Wish it could add “user defined” button for shortcuts to businesses frequently referenced.
Fix the glitches and Poynt will be one of my favorite and useful apps thus far! Being a free app makes it still worth it.
