Poynt: The Perfect Mobile App for Summer Travel


Now that more people are traveling for the summer, there is an app called Poynt that lets you connect to local offers, businesses, events, restaurants, gas prices and weather information while traveling. It's a great all-in-one mobile application for your travel needs. I'm on my road trip actually and it's very useful when I don't have access to my computer and internet. Since I'm traveling in Canada, offers aren't available (except in the US). Hopefully this will change in the near future.

Poynt users can search for restaurants in their area and reserve a table directly from the app. Users can also take advantage of Google Maps for directions, as well as a search for local movie listings, events and even the best stations for gas prices helping to make your summer travel plans quick, organized and enjoyable.

With more than 16 million unique users on all major smartphone and tablet platforms in nine countries, Poynt is the perfect summer travel guide. Anyone traveling this summer will need to know all the local options available, whether it is a complete list of restaurants or the cheapest way to fuel-up their car for the ride home.

  1. Yes, this is great app for Travel

    And it is available in India, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and Germany and more country updates coming soon.

    I like this app because this not only available on Android and iOS but it is also available on other smart os Mobile Phones like BlackBerry, windows phone, nokia symbin phone and now it is also available on tablets.

  2. This is certainly a great app! It can be handy for both travelers and tourist. All the information they would need is available at the click of a button. I personally like the gas prices feature of the app. It would be helpful in planning the trip, as you would already know how much you would spend for gas. But, I think it would be much better if the places are not that limited.
