Poynt

Open up your local community, wherever you happen to be, with Poynt's free location-search application.

You can search for local businesses (by name or type) and people, research restaurants, search for movies by title or theater, and find the closest gas station or the one with the cheapest gas (which could prove to be a real lifesaver if gas prices climb over the summer).

Poynt integrates with your BlackBerry's phone and mapping features, making it simple to find a place or to call one you've already located. It also uses third-party services such as OpenTable to make restaurant reservations and CinemaSource to buy movie tickets. These services can be somewhat hit-or-miss, since only a limited number of local businesses are covered; still, it's nice when the stars align and you can handle everything from your phone.
