Very close to great, but is lacking
I think they could fix this app easily, but given the old date of the current version they don’t seem inclined to. Freezing the compass on any kind of zoom is not good. It does not display several major towers in my area. It inaccurately displays info on others. Other towers are displayed with no info. All these things are correctable and would be a more effective sales tool. It is unfortunate because the app has some great tools unique to it but whose use is limited by the deficiencies mentioned. Shouldn’t complain too much for a free app, but it is frustrating to see one so close to great (and which would reflect on the companies operating philosophy).

Not very useful at my location
Several of the towers are too close to me to see in the default view as they are hidden under the blue dot. When you zoom in the compass function stops working and so you cannot get the pointer to show the right direction. Also there is not a search function to find out where to point the antenna for a particular station.

Simple and effective
Use the app to find your towers. Lay your phone flat on the antenna if possible and line it up as close as you can to the desired tower. Turn the phone as needed to line up the arrow toward the tower. After this, turn the “level” app on your phone (or get a regular level) and make sure your antenna is perfectly level. Tighten the bolts then rescan your tv and you should be good to go. This is so easy to use and I couldn’t have set the antenna without it.

Shows locations but frequent crashes
The app does a good job when it works. You can use the compass to point your phone in the general direction your antenna points to aim it towards the stations you want. As long as you don’t zoom or more than one station isn’t close by to another you can click on each station to see what you are aimed at. Unfortunately most stations are nearby and overlap and thus require you to zoom. Once you zoom, the app freezes and eventually crashes. I’m running 11.0.3 and iphone 7plus. If more than one station overlaps it may not identify the station at all or just identify the same one every time. Not terrible for free but could be better.

Worked fine for free app
Decided to get off cable. Bought a directional antenna. The app did great highlighting what direction to point antenna by showing the strongest tower highlighted in green. This tower was the closest to my house. Aprox. 36 miles away. Rescanned TV and had decent reception. The map showed 3 towers aprox. 55 miles away so I pointed the antenna to those (these were not highlighted in green) just to see what happened. I doubled my Chanel’s after scanning again. My home antenna is rated up to 75 miles.

I love this app!
Wow, this made my antenna setup so much easier. I just decided to cut the cord and wasn't sure where the towers were located and found this app on the antenna website. I was able to see my list of stations too, which is awesome because when you scan channels on the tv you can actually see all the stations you are supposed to get. Had to relocate my antenna one time and now it's working great.

Worked Perfectly
I needed a resource to help get the optimum antenna direction for aiming and this made it super easy. It had all the local tv tower locations correct for my area and once you turn on the beam angle view it tells you exactly which direction to aim a directional antenna. I was pretty far off what I assumed to be correct based on looking at a map and guessing based on where the towers were.

Great app
I used the app, and it works great for helping you with your antenna, I got 4 channels to work that I did not have before I used the app and moved my antenna now all my antenna Channels are completely clear and have no problems with sound and picture quality, and it’s a wonderful app for people who want their antennas to work better!

Directional Cone lacks any real usefulness
I went to set up a Clearstream 2 indoor antenna. The antenna pointer tries to show you where to get the best reception, however that has no correlation to which towers you’re interested in. All of the towers in my area are SW of my location, yet the directional cone wanted me to face the antenna would be nice if you could allow the 30° cone to rotate with the phone, so you can capture antennas on the outer edge of the band. Likewise, in the antenna list, if you could check which towers you wanted to potentially receive reception from, and determine the directional cone that way.

Works well thumbs up!
Id like to say this app works well and is very easy to use and comes with good documentation to explain to you how to use it. Only disadvantage I can think of is that i just bought a 150 mile digital antenna and im not sure where the towers are outside of the 70 mile range lol. Perhaps an update for 150 mile range? Or to allow pointing of any tower on map or loading other towers on map outside range? Thanks again!

No Longer Zooms In
I’ve used this app for maybe 3 years and recently I noticed that the app won’t zoom in if my iPhone isn’t still. In the past years I could zoom in and the map wouldn’t move unless I moved it. Because the map can’t zoom in while my hand is moving, the app is very hard to use. Please fix this as soon as possible. Thank you in advance.

It’s OK
If you know the compass heading of the television station and where you are it is much easier to find tower that way. Trouble is when there are multiple towers close to each other like in a city, you don’t know which one you’re pointing to because as soon as you start to zoom in on a particular tower the compass feature disappears, it’s pretty much useless unless you’re way out in the boonies and have two towers in opposite directions.

why rely on kludgy phone compass?
please give us an option to get real compass headings for tower locations, give us the ability to move reception location by dragging on map! for any RV’ers these changes would make an outstanding app for our frequent moves.

Simple and easy to use
This app did exactly what I needed it to, it was simple and very easy to use. Within 2 mins of opening the application I had set the up my antenna and was receiving more than 40 channels. Out of all the ones I’ve tried this was by far the quickest and easiest!

Needed this!
Thankful for this. Purchased a new C2Max and ClearstreamTV from Antennas Direct and wanted to make sure ideal setup to maximize channels. The app helped so much, adding the ClearstreamTV allowed the antenna placement to not have to be where my TVs are since not ideal location with walls etc. App did exactly what needed.

Off by 90 degrees
I used the app to site a new antenna but missed half the channels. Went online and found transmitter locations and used the compass on my watch to change antenna direction. Almost exactly 90 degrees off from what the app showed. Antenna pulls in all the stations now, just spend twice as long on the ladder than needed to.

I have had problems getting a strong signal for 2 of the TV stations in my area. I used this to properly align the antenna. Now I get a beautiful stable signal for every channel. I couldn’t be happier!

Need larger radius!
With the improvements of amplified antennas this app needs to extend up to 175 miles rather than the 60 mile radius it currently supports. My nearest channel (other than pbs) is 80 miles away. All other channels are at the 150 mile distance. Great app otherwise.

Crashes during calibration, uses wrong location
This looked promising, unfortunately I wasn’t able to use it as intended as I was unable to fully launch it without crashing. On first launch, it brings up the compass calibration — before getting the full circle filled in it crashed — multiple times. I eventually got it to launch, but it decided I was somewhere in Connecticut when I was actually in Boston. I gave 2 stars because it did gave a list of TV stations for Boston, but that’s about it. iPhone 6, iOS 11.4 — feel free to contact me for crash logs as the app shows promise and I am a developer.

Not super intuitive but works
Even with the walkthrough I didn’t really understand how this app works, but I stood next to my antenna and pointed towards the green area the app indicated and got a few additional channels by moving my antenna a small amount. Thanks!

No Helpful
The the tower/channel I want (KXTV Sacramento) is listed in ‘Tower & Channels’ but I can’t find it on the map. The list should link to the map. Also, the direction the map/phone is currently pointed is not listed in degrees. I can’t find my tower on the map but I know it’s around 160 degrees. Unfortunately, there’s no way to use that info with this app to orient your antenna.

Serves purpose, but with a fatal flaw
Shows tower location for general aiming of your antenna. However, you can’t pinch to zoom in and verify what towers are what. You zoom in and the app snaps back to the original view. Fix that and add a pop up of what sub channels are on what towers then it’s a five star app.

Only partially useful
There are several issues that make this app only partially useful. Although the towers icons are oriented in the correct direction, the overlay map is in the totally wrong direction and is therefore useless. The map will reorient and freeze when the phone is rotated. It is never in the correct orientation. The beam function points to a group of towers 70 miles away, not to the 5 towers in receiving range in the opposite direction. The only way this app is useful is to manually rotate (point) the phone to the direction of the towers you wish to receive. The beam and map displays are useless. iPhone 7+, iOS 11.3

Barely works
You can use this to locate broadcast towers near you by the map but all the claims of giving the tower name and direction does not work. Most frustrating is using any kind of zoom the screen freezes as many have mentioned

Used this to aim my antenea in my attic. Ended up with twice as many channels as I’ve ever found before. Only reason I didn’t give five is cuz it does freeze the compass a bit.

NOT Working Without GPS Location
This app does NOT work if you don't allow it to access your GPS location. I do not like having Location Services turned ON and prefer to enter my location manually, but this app does NOT allow you to enter an address. Please try to add this feature. Thank you.

Where I’m I? LOL
It shows the antennas on the map, but no way the compass is right. The sun goes down in the west, it’s showing that as north. Since the compass is wrong, it’s going to give me the wrong direction to point the towers. So what’s the purpose of the app? Just using my sense of direction, I had the antenna pointed correctly before even using this app.

I could only get the intro, never could get the program started. Waste of a half hour of my life. The one star is they do give an 800 number for antenna questions. Don’t know if they even answer the phone, but seemed like a nice gesture.

Can’t use offline
If I’m in a spot where I’m looking for TV signals, I’m probably also in a spot where I don’t have dependable cell service. This app is useless without a data connection, so it’s pretty useless overall.

Faulty compass
Identifying the location of transmitting towers was useful but the map of my state is positioned completely wrong. What should be East shows as North and the problem continues as I move my device around. The compass feature seems to be working. It’s the map beneath the compass that’s wrong.

Decent enough app for what it does, but every 10 seconds it puts a pop up asking you to purchase any of a dozen different options, you can use it but it is so frustrating. Be warned.

When I zoom in so that the antenna isn’t hiding behind the inner circle the app freezes so it is kind of useless to fine tune the antenna because it doesn’t allow you to see where you are aiming.
