Poynt upgraded to v18.104.22.168
Poynt has been upgraded from 22.214.171.124 to v126.96.36.199
I will update my BB shortly and report any changes I notice.
It's available on Poynt is a free local search application for your iPhone or BlackBerry smartphone.
Not updated on BB App World yet...
I loaded this, and quite honestly, I didn't notice what the difference is...hmmm.
Please leave your feedback and share your opinions here...

Thanks Orio for the update.
Seems to me that one new feature is an "add to calendar" feature...if you see a movie time, you can add it to your BB calendar.
I'm thinking it's new...possibly.
you're welcome ...

In Options and Settings, u have a Navigation Option. Not Sure what it is all about yet.
I don't recall these options in the previous version.
Also noticed that weather info loads way faster.

Reason: Updated Info
Commenting on two postings in this thread:
1) "MobiHand is listing 184.108.40.206 as their current download as of 3 pm 4/26....talk about behind the times!" - IT IS ONLY THE VERSION LISTING THAT IS INCORRECT - WHEN YOU DOWNLOAD IT, YOU ACTUALLY GOT 220.127.116.11 (and maybe now 18.104.22.168)
2) "In Options and Settings, u have a Navigation Option. Not Sure what it is all about yet." - YOU CAN SET IT TO INTERFACE TO TELENAV - i.e., find a listing on Poynt and then it will launch Telenav, enter the Poynt listed address, etc. This was new on 22.214.171.124 - but it did not work (at least with AT&T Telenav V2.2 - maybe this is a fix in the latest release of Poynt
It is updated now in App World. Just downloaded it.
Thanks for the heads up! :fing02:

This release of Poynt (and the previous one) also interface to AT&T Navigator - however, both releases have a severe problem in this regard:
If you select a POI from a Poynt list, and then click "Map Route" on the menu key, it launches AT&T Navigator - but NAV then states "Address not found". However, if you manually enter the address of the POI into NAV, it finds it just fine.
In addition, Poynt will launch NAV only the first time after device power up - if you try to "Map Route" a second time (as in see if it can find the address this time!), it will not even launch NAV.
I have sent several emails to Poynt support about this and do not get any response - very disappointing. YES - Poynt is a free app, but if they claim it interacts with another app and it has problems, and a user takes the time to tell them that fact, they should at least reply . .
