Poynt connects iPhone users to businesses, movies, retailers, restaurants, people and now local weather.

Poynt's call gesture capability offers a robust in-app calling solution tapping into the iPhone's proximity sensor and accelerometer. When a user finds a restaurant, business or person using Poynt, they can simply bring the phone to their ear and Poynt will automatically detect the motion and dial the phone number.
