With Antenna Point, aiming your TV antenna is easy! The map in the app will display transmitting towers along with the distance from your home to each tower. Antenna Point will identify your location and provide the TV antenna coverage area within 35-mile, 50-mile, and a 70-mile range pattern. The app will help you find the best direction to aim your indoor, attic or outdoor TV antenna. Download the Antenna Point app on your smart phone or tablet, read through the step-by-step instructions and start aiming your smart phone or tablet towards the largest cluster of towers. Once you’ve found the best direction to all the towers, install your antenna in an area with the best unobstructed view to the TV towers. Connect your antenna to your TV and use your remote to scan your TV for channels. The towers are displayed in black markers on the map, and you can tap on each tower to see the main network call sign, like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, The CW, ION, MeTV and many more. The app includes a channel list, so you can preview the TV stations available in your area.
Tips: After your initial channel scan, check the number of TV stations you are receiving. If you are not receiving all the available channels move your antenna to another spot and rescan your TV for channels until you receive the most channels. You may have to move the antenna a few times until you find the best TV signals. [Note: certain variables unrelated to the antenna’s performance can interfere with signal reception, such as terrain, tall buildings, and trees – try finding the most unobstructed view to the TV towers for the best TV signals].

Ratings and Reviews
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).
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.
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 NE....it 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.
