Poynt deserves the "super app" moniker by which it is often described: The free application, which works for Android, iPhone, Windows 7, BlackBerry (including integration with Playbook), and Nokia QT, is a third-party service aggregator that provides local business listings and entertainment options (via Citysearch), directions (Google Maps), dining options and reviews (OpenTable), movie listings, and ticket purchases (CinemaSource and Movietickets.com). Conveniently, almost everything—from buying tickets to booking reservations (which are then added to your calendar) to making a call—can be done within the app environment. Did we mention the weather service and gas-price checker with gas-station finder? Yes, it offers those features as well.

COST: Free.
