Poynt for Android updated: New gas prices widget, sharing with Facebook and Twitter

Ahhh, Poynt.. perhaps my favorite app to use on my Android smartphone. Poynt for Android and Blackberry recently received an update which installed a few new features.

This first feature is strictly an Android update. Poynt now allows Android users to utilize a widget showing the closest gas stations and cheapest prices. Both the Android and Blackberry apps also received a new feature that allows the user to share search results with Facebook, Twitter, or email.

You can install Poynt for Android via the TalkAndroid ApptlyAndroid database, or scan the QR code below. Don’t quite know what Poynt is all about? Check out the in-depth review I wrote about Poynt by clicking here.
