Poynt for Android & BlackBerry Uses Data From Eventful to Let You Know About Local Events

After reading its press release about its updated free Android app, I was looking forward to giving Poynt for Android a try (a BlackBerry app is also available). The press release stated: The new version of Poynt for Blackberry and Android is immediately available for download from Blackberry AppWorld and the Android Marketplace, as well as Over the Air download at m.poynt.com..

My interest was in its new Events feature: The new Events feature allows users to search by performer, event or venue nearby, by event date or by category, including festivals, concerts and sporting events. Users can then view details such as maps, photos, browse websites, view seating charts and get detailed performer information. As well, users can add events to their device calendar or send details to friends.. This feature draws data from Eventful.com.

Unfortunately, the app isn’t available in the Android Market as of the wee hours of Jan. 12. However, the app appears interesting enough to warrant a second availability check in the near future. Let me know if you find the app before I do and let me know what you think.
