TechBit: For a night out, get going in the right direction with Poynt

A new way to find things to do tonight

Where are you going tonight? Poynt will get you going in the right direction, whether you want to know what movies are playing, where to grab a bite to eat or just what the weather is like. The app lets you search things to do around you — or in the location of your choice, for travelers — and also includes a business listing lookup, people search, gas station directory and even some coupons for your selected area. One problem with the app is that searches aren’t always on the most helpful settings by default, so users will likely have to fiddle with filters to get the best possible data from the app. Free, for iOS and Android devices.
