Excellent timer for Mac

A great timer app for Mac - easy to use - lots of customisation (in the paid version, which is worth the $$) - Probably my only request would be for Siri integration - In the absence of an Apple timer/alarm app, being able to ask Siri to "set a timer for 5 mins" which defaults to Howler Timer would be awesome.

Almost there!

It just works. Siuggestion might be that the app window is a bit big. Would be brilliant if it would rest in the menu bar so it can be just clicked on to start/stop/set time etc. Happy to recommend.

Howler Timer...

I've had this for a few years, and it's great. If I have something cooking, and I am at work on my PC at home this wee app works brilliantly, it's a great reminder that somethings finished...time never fails...I've just it...
