With Antenna Point, aiming your antenna is easy! You can see the transmitting towers along with the distance from your home to each tower. Find the best location to receive TV signals and install your indoor, attic or outdoor antenna. Antenna Point will identify your location and provide concentric circles on the map with a coverage area of a 35-mile, 50-mile, and a 60-mile range pattern. The towers are displayed in black on the map and you can click on each tower to see the affiliate name for each transmitter. There is also a list of TV channels available in your area.
It's So Easy
Hold your smart phone or tablet horizontal to the ground. Slowly turn your device and use the pointer symbol in the center of the map as your guide until the pointer is aimed towards the largest cluster of towers.
Aim the antenna toward the TV stations' towers and check the reception by connecting your antenna to the TV and performing a channel scan. [Note: certain variables unrelated to the antenna’s performance can interfere with signal reception, such as terrain, tall buildings, and trees].

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).
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!
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.
