    Especially for those that use/used Poynt on a
    BlackBerry device, are you using (or did you
    even know about) it for the iPhone? I d/led it
    and have tried search for businesses that I
    knew were near by and didn't get the results
    I was looking for. So I'm on the fence about
    using it again. I was in NYC and typed pizza,
    and got so many results, but none of which
    was for the one I was parked in front of.

    That pretty much is what I have experienced, too. It was one of my favorite apps on my BlackBerry... but not so much on the iPhone... it just seems to be seriously lacking... the BB version had gas prices and a "map it" feature... but apart from that, it just seems to be much slower and less accurate in the iPhone version...

    Glad I'm not the only one that experienced this.
    Hopefully some updates will come shortly. The
    only mention the iPhone app once in their
    entire website. No testimonials either from
    iPhone users.

    I have also sent them a "support request" form asking about the apparent disparity between their apps on the two platforms... nothing yet, but it's only been a week

    I went into options and changed the 'Search
    Radius' to 5 miles. Hopefully, I get better
    results now.

    I updated it and it says the gas prices is
    coming soon.

    Good to know that they are updating the iPhone version to add gas prices...

    Where is the options setting? I don't see anywhere in Poynt to set options...

    No problem... still some things I still don't know
    about the device myself and I've had it since
    the Original iPhone.
