Does Poynt have potential to bring local communities together?

If you are fan of all those location-based technologies services trying to make our lives easier you might know about Poynt (app).

Poynt is a local search facility on your mobile. The app has no niche; you can search for almost anything.

It’s very useful if you are looking for the nearest gas station or restaurant etc… but to be honest it’s  not extraordinary as there are many services offering those features nowadays.

What we find quite interesting about this product: 

– They have added great messaging options including contacts

– Real-time search & answer.

– Great design (great user interface/experience)

– Smart weather icon (it is a utility app!)

– A very small move in getting a partnership with Nimbuzz ( a mobile messaging app). Perhaps this might be a good step forward in resolving their critical mass issue.
