Calgary's Poynt Corp has announced an agreement with Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA to preload the Poynt Application on prepaid smartphones that run on the Sprint Nationwide Network. The first device with Poynt preloaded was the Virgin Mobile LG Optimus V, which debuted earlier this year.
Poynt is a GPS-enabled mobile application that connects consumers to local businesses, events, restaurants, movie theaters, gas prices and weather information. Poynt provides consumers the ability to view movie trailers and reviews, buy movie tickets, click-to-call businesses, get directions, browse listing websites, read reviews, and book dining reservations.
"The popularity Poynt has already achieved with users on BlackBerry smartphones and on Android devices will be greatly enhanced by the ease of discoverability that this preload agreement provides," said Andrew Osis, CEO, Poynt Corp. "Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile are two of the most popular prepaid brands in the United States and we are confident this agreement will result in strong user acquisition and retention for both of them."
Poynt is available as a free download on BlackBerries, iPhones and iPod Touches, Android phones, and Windows 7 phones.
