I decided to put the Poynt Application to the test last week when I was searching the local area for activities for my 2 year old daughter. I opened the application, and once it had searched my current location, it took me to an attractive menu screen which offered me 4 options: Businesses, Events, Restaurants and Movies, as well as displaying the local weather conditions and temperature.
After selecting 'Businesses', I was taken to a Search Bar where I could enter my search words. When I typed 'Children's Centre' into the search bar, I was presented with a list of local results including their distance from my current location in kms. Above this list of results were 2 sponsored results selected by Thomson Local, both of which were reasonably nearby. On opening the business that seemed most suitable, I was given the address and telephone number of the children's centre, but also had the option to call them directly from the App, saving me from having to copy & paste the details. I was also given a Map and Directions information that would lead me straight to where I want to go.
Poynt is easy and convenient to use and is great for finding locations in and around your local area (and beyond) which you may not have discovered before. And best of all, it's FREE! Give it a go and see in which direction this new App will POYNT you today!
