Poynt to benefit from expanded market reach and new relationship with
TORONTO, Dec. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Sprylogics International Corp. ("Sprylogics") (TSXV: SPY), a technology provider of local mobile solutions for consumers and
businesses is pleased to announce that its award winning consumer App
Poynt is now available on Amazon for Kindle devices, furthering its
growth potential and reach to millions of new potential users. Current
market estimates indicate that Amazon's Kindle accounts for over one
third of the global Android tablet market, with significantly higher
penetration in North America, making it a world class player with a
major user base going well beyond content reading to search, plan, map
and share information every day.
Sprylogics has now extended its Poynt App's patented local search
technology into Amazon's leading line of Android tablets. Now, Kindle
users can enjoy all the local search functions and benefits that have
made Poynt a leader in mobile local search, with over 20 million
downloads worldwide. Market research firm Strategy Analytics estimated
that Amazon will sell 15 Million Kindle Fires by the end of 2013.
"This is an outstanding validation of Kindle's expanded usage patterns,
and now Kindle users can reap the full benefits of smartphone
functionality to search for local places, people, information and
events via the Poynt App," said Marvin Igelman, CEO of Sprylogics.
"Amazon has established its Kindle tablet as a main contender and
continues to push its competitors with Kindle's high value and
functionality. Given the large Kindle market share footprint, which is
especially strong in North America, this further expands and
strengthens our advertising distribution, and will also benefit our ad
partnerships with increased search activity."
As part of this new launch, Amazon has selected Poynt to be featured
globally on their Apps store for Kindle and Android, with added
exposure including Facebook and Twitter blasts as well as email blasts
and blog posts. In addition, Poynt will be part of the coveted Amazon
recommendations engine resulting in Poynt appearing as a suggested
download when users look for related searches.
