Poynt Local Search Application Expands Availability With Launch on Nokia QT Devices

Award-winning App. Now Available in Germany, France, Italy and Spain

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 12, 2011) - Poynt Corporation ("Poynt Corp." or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PYN), a leading provider of mobile local search services, today announced the expanded availability of its flagship mobile local search application, Poynt ("Poynt" or the "App") for the Nokia QT platform. The award winning local search app is now available for Nokia's QT platform devices in Germany, France, Italy and Spain in addition to Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Poynt is a convenient and timesaving GPS-enabled application that gives users the power of multiple applications in one intuitive package. Poynt, a free application available on the Nokia Ovi Store, connects consumers to local businesses, restaurants, movie theaters and weather information at the moment they are looking to buy or acquire products. Poynt provides consumers the ability to move beyond discovery of their local area to view movie trailers and reviews, click-to-call businesses, get directions, browse listing websites and read reviews and book dining reservations.

"Nokia devices are the world's most widely sold smartphones. Launching Poynt on Nokia QT devices was important in expanding Poynt's availability to users on another device platform," said Andrew Osis, CEO, Poynt Corp. "We are thrilled to make the Poynt application available in local languages to other key markets in Europe."

The new version of Poynt for Nokia QT devices is immediately available for download from the Ovi Store: http://store.ovi.com/content/107561 or at m.poynt.com.
