Phone App for tv stations

At the recommendation of others here on the forum I downloaded a great app that helped me point my antenna in the correct direction for tv reception. However I upgraded phones and the app didn't transfer and I've forgotten it's name. Any recommendations?

Thanks

TV antenna Helper works good but it is sooo out of date we find it unusable. The call letters and network information is just not good. And on the compass view the stations are so small on my phone I can't make it out withot getting a magnifying glass. Fail for us.

We find DTV Antennas much better. Give it a try.

Hi,

I am using TV Fool on several different Android devices. I don't know about Apple equipment.

TVFool compatibility

TVFool.com actually is browser driven, so will work fine on most browsers. I use it fine on Safari on iOS devices.

A handy channel guide for your browser is TVTV.com or .ca for Canada. Put in your location and choose your delivery system (cable, satellite, broadcast) and it gives you the listings. Very handy for a quick look at what's on where you happen to be, although due to differences in reception capabilities, you may not get all the channels listed.

TV Fool is a website, not an app, so it'll will work with any browser. You'll need to input an address or zip code.

I might have grabbed it while it was free as I've used it for a few years.. I like it and would pay 1.99 for it..

Another for TV Towers, we've used it all over Virginia and it's great.

Just installed TVTowers by WaveSpark from Google play store. Ver 1.03
WTH?? It said only 3 downloads so far. I guess it's a new version.
Not working for me. Shows my exact location on a big map with a green circle but no stations?? There should be a bunch.
