Calgary's Multiplied Media Corporation announced yesterday that its Poynt Local Search application was named as a winner in the eighth annual Mobile Star Awards program, hosted by mobile technology news portal MobileVillage.com.
As in past years, the Mobile Star Awards program showcases "best of" entries in dozens of categories covering mobile apps, enterprise mobile software, wireless network products, enterprise success stories, mobile industry visionaries and more.
Winners were chosen by subscribers of MobileVillage's "Go Mobile" - a free e-newsletter that delivers headlines and links from top mobile technology stories on popular websites such as Cnet, Engadget, Gizmodo, PC Magazine, Computerworld and AppScout.
Multiplied Media was recognized as the winner of the Navigation or Location Based Services Award in the category for Consumer Applications.
"Poynt was selected by our 'Go Mobile' readers as the go-to application on the BlackBerry for location based and navigation services," said Jon Covington, MobileVillage founder and president. "Real users selected the Poynt app based on real results, not hype. I look forward to watching Poynt evolve onto other platforms in the future, giving more users the opportunity to utilize the great application."
