    Default Poynt equivalent?

    I was wondering if there is a Poynt equivalent for the Z10.
    Anyone able to recommend an app that's similar?

    The android ported google maps is fully featured. Can pretty much do everything poynt can do. Few ways even better. Like when you find a company or resteraunt you can instantly look a the street view. Poynt was always find the resteraunt then press map it on google maps, now you eliminate a step. Ive had it crash a couple times but overall its not bad. Would be awesome if google made a BB10 app but there dicks, thats wishfull thinking

    The main thing I used Poynt for was to quickly do reverse lookups on unfamiliar phone numbers. I miss that feature already.

    I tried out spotcast. It is not a replacement for poynt, hopefully someone makes something that had all the same features soon.

    How about an Android side load? Anything like Poynt that way?

    Sounds like there's some hope Poynt is going to be operational again Intertainment Media and Avenza Systems Acquire Poynt Corporation Assets

    Looking for the apk ..... it's hard to get on android market without an android phone and it's direct install on most sites.
    Do you have a link where I could pay and download just the apk?

    Silly question but has anyone tried side loading the PlayBook version? Being native and all I figured it may work a little better than the Android version. Would it even be possible to do this?
