App updates: Poynt, Subsonic streamer, GroupMe and Mehdoh

We have another app-update round up for you to catch up on. We probably missed a few, but here's what we have for now.

  • Poynt v2- See review. For those who don't have Local Scout or just prefer to have an alternative, Poynt received a nice Mango update. The new version features weather on the Live Tile and pinnable sub-sections, like restaurant, gas, movie, weather, business, or people search. You can also add info to Contacts now, though it's fairly limited at this point. It evidently also uses Bing Search now, which is a nice touch. Overall, the app is quite sharp and free though we think scrolling could be improved a bit. Grab it here in the Marketplace.
  • Subsonic Streamer v5 - Yet another music streaming app, but this one streams from your home PC as opposed to an online service and features local-storage (for when offline). Once again, since its Mango-fied, it now has background playing, streaming, downloading and fast app switching, making this app really useful now. Of course, it's $3.99 but for those who need it, they love it. Grab it here in the Marketplace.
  • Mehdoh Twitter v1.2 - Mehdoh has the distinction of being one of the only Mango-fied Twitter apps in the Marketplace (see video hands on) and its already had two updates since its release. The latest version brings the ability to double tap the header to scroll to the top of the list, tweet the title/artist of the currently playing track, auto complete @, live tile updates for direct messages and the option to choose start up list. We really dig the ability to Tweet your currently playing song as we have seen a Twitter client offer that yet, plus with notifications and the Live Tile, we really dig this app. Pick it up here in the Marketplace.
  • GroupMe v1.2 - Though still in "preview" mode, GroupMe has taken a big step in the right direction by offering live tile notifications and photo sharing. Though Groups in Mango sort of makes GroupMe redundant, we're sure there are a few of you who need this free app. Get it here in the Marketplace.

While WP7.5 has group chat, it's not as robust as GroupMe. My friends and I use it everyday. I prefer to not use the App and just get texts but I have one friend on iphone and the other on Android who use their apps instead of texting.
