Do you have a POIFriend? Because You Should...

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by and I was rather intrigued. As you might suspect (pronounced like boyfriend) is all about points of interests. Essentially, it is a social network that allows users to create and share their own POIs within their group of friends or with the entire community. A good set of POIs can quickly get you to nearby restaurants, gas stations, hotels, hospitals, and even tourist attractions. With POIfriend, you can create your own POIs, download them to your GPS unit, iPhone or Blackberry, and share them with others site users and even with friends who aren’t members. Best of all, it’s free.

"POIfriend is the point of interest community that connects people and the places important to them. POIfriend is a powerful, fun and easy-to-use website that lets you find, create, comment, rate, share, and use POI (Point of Interest) information with GPS or maps. It is 100% FREE for users and detailed personal information is not mandatory."
So what are the benifits to this great service? Allow me to share:
-- A one-stop shop for a broad-range of POI destinations
-- Avoiding the hassles of store-locator navigation
-- 100% FREE
-- Connect with everyone you know and those you don't
-- User-friendly compatibility (works with most portable GPS-enabled
-- No GPS required
-- Stripping away the techno-babble from GPS and POI data
-- No bio necessary - just an email will get you started
-- Users have full control over the places they wish to share
-- Compelling connection between businesses and your community

I have been using this service for quite some time now and I must say, it is great! There are even apps for you phone like the iPhone, including other phones. Unfortunately, the iPhone application is not as good as the service but you can read my full iPhone review here.

So, go ahead and get yourself an account. If you are like me, you will definitely find a use in the free service. If I haven't quite explained it enough. Take a look at the video:
