Poynt for Windows Phone 7 Expands United States Feature Set to Include Gas Prices

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 29, 2010) - Poynt Corporation ("Poynt Corp." or the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:PYN), a leading provider of mobile local search services, today announced their Poynt Local Search app ("Poynt" or the "App") for Windows Phone 7 now includes gas prices in the United States.

Poynt harnesses the power of multiple applications in one intuitive package. Users can view search results, call businesses, and get driving directions, as well as view restaurant information and even make dinner reservations. The addition of gas prices in the United States means that users can now search for the closest gas or for the best gas price by grade. Users have the ability to set their search radius to restrict their local search area.

The addition of a gas feature to Poynt for Windows Phone 7 brings the Windows Phone 7 feature set in line with the BlackBerry smartphones, iPhone and iPod Touch, and Android devices' feature set and gives users access to one of the most popular and highly requested search features in Poynt.

"Given the potential market share for Windows Phone 7, it was crucial for us to provide the full feature set for US users before the start of the holiday season," said Andrew Osis, CEO, Poynt Corp. "The holiday season means people are spending more time in their cars and our users consistently tell us how invaluable Poynt is to help locate the best gas price."

The new version of Poynt for Windows Phone 7 is immediately available for download from your mobile browser at: http://m.poynt.com
