What's New in Version 2.3.1
Great app, needs bug fixes
I have loved using this app for years, but after updating to the latest version it either says "no results" or freezes up saying "retrieving". And I was in downtown of a large city with 5 bars and LTE.
Also there needs to be a way to freeze a location while driving so it doesn't refresh your results every 5 seconds, so that you actually have a chance to scroll through locations without having to pull over.
Good and bad
I love this all in one location app but have looked too many times for places that no longer exist. Poynt really needs to remove locations that no longer exist. I have drove around looking for several places that have gone out of business probably 5 or 6 times in the last year alone.
Currently broken on the 6+
I love point and have been using it since I had my old BlackBerry 8800. My one star review is for this version of the app alone. I do not know about other versions of iPhones, but this update has broken point on my iPhone 6+.
