Poynt Local Search App Now Available to Blackberry Customers on Vodafone UK

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2010) - Poynt Corporation (TSX VENTURE:PYN) ("Poynt Corp." or the "Company"), a leading provider of mobile local search services, is providing a preloaded icon for the award-winning Poynt mobile local search application ("Poynt" or the "App") to Vodafone UK's BlackBerry® smartphone customers.

Poynt is a convenient and timesaving GPS-enabled application that connects consumers to local businesses, restaurants and movie theaters at the moment they want to buy or acquire products or services. Poynt gives consumers the ability to move beyond discovery of their local area to view movie trailers and showtimes, book dining reservations, view directions on a map, click-to-call the business or view their website.

"We are pleased to be able to share Poynt's compelling, feature-rich local search capabilities with Vodafone UK's BlackBerry smartphone customers," said Andrew Osis, CEO of Poynt Corp. "The United Kingdom is an important market for Poynt and we are happy to continue its growth with a company as forward thinking and customer focused as Vodafone."

Poynt is seamlessly integrated with the BlackBerry® user experience, allowing users to add searched addresses to their BlackBerry® Contacts, schedule and add events to the BlackBerry® Calendar and even invite address book contacts to events. Poynt also shows users how to get to a selected location utilizing BlackBerry® Maps or Google Maps Mobile.
