Samsung to add Calgary’s mobile app Poynt to all Galaxy devices

Calgary’s Poynt Corporation, a mobile local search and advertising company, today announced that its award-winning Poynt platform is immediately available on new and existing Samsung Galaxy Series devices including the S II and the Tab.

The on-device Samsung Apps, Samsung’s app store, features a variety of apps that are “specially designed and carefully selected for Samsung smart devices.” Poynt’s location-based search features and deep device integration create “an immersive user experience that will showcase the powerful capabilities of Samsung’s Galaxy devices.” Poynt says that an augmented reality feature has been added for select devices.

“Poynt has experienced incredible user uptake and retention on the Android platform,” said Andrew Osis, CEO, Poynt Corp. “We expect our long term service offering through Samsung Apps to accelerate our user numbers globally as Samsung has recently become the No. 1 smartphone manufacturer in the world. Currently, we are 11.5 million unique users and this offering furthers our goal of adding 50 million new users over time.”
