Dream come true I was the guy with the laptop... So practical, silicondust should pay you and advertise the app on their site. I get all the info I need to aim the antenna without climbing ladders so often or lugging laptops to the roof in the middle of winter.

Does what it claims; and that's the best that can be said. I don't have the time it would take to describe all the ways this app is disappointing. In order to adjust an antennae using this app you would have to have a pencil and paper to write down all of the station number translations during the 15+ minutes it takes to manually "scan" each individual station. Then manually type in the stations you want to tune/adjust in a tedious process of turn, type, wait, repeat. The alternative is to "scan" them several times to make sure getting one station clear doesn't undo the tuning of another. This, of course, would take several hours if you live anywhere near a metropolitan area. There are 2 or 3 extremely simple UI enhancements that could make this "simple" app actually usable. Since this hasn't happened in the last year, I don't expect it anytime soon. For the love of all that's usable, couldn't you at least retain the list of tuned stations to scroll through?! From my experience with app development, I can only imagine that the original app was written in less than an hour and the only development time devoted to it since has been debugging.

Great app to adjust the antenna! This app is very helpful in adjusting the antenna remotely. The only thing I could possibly find missing is the frequencies being tuned to. The app on the computer does show that when it scans though. Sometimes when the signal is less than 100% but still green the whole bat goes green.
