Use every day

I've used Howler (the free version) every day at work for a few years now. I love that it lets me set multiple timers, either as a countdown, or to a specific time. (I mostly use it to set timers that alert about 2 minutes before a meeting starts at work.) So while the Free version is all I've needed so far, I thought $2 (or whatever Apple passes on) is a small price to pay to say "thanks" to the developer for this excellent app.

The sounds that come with it are silly but you can set it to your own sounds. For me, the biggest help is that it pops the window to the foreground when the timer goes off, letting me know it's time to get to my next meeting. The best apps are ones developers write to fill a need they face personally, and that's exactly what this is - not some slick thing trying to compete with all the other overpriced apps in the store, but an inexpensive, solid little app that gets the job done.

Amazing, loyal user for many years!!!

So simple yet so effective. Used for years with zero issues and is one of the very first apps I download to a new computer.

I have challenges with executive functioning and it helps a lot to be able to chain and loop timers. I also like the options to set an infinite howl until I stop it. Having a loud, unmistakeable sound among all the myriad beeps our devices barrage us with is great. The ten second warning is also nice. I haven't messed around with the other sounds much, usually use the default howls, except when I need less obtrusive sound to mark the passage of time. For the modest price I paid, the Pro version is totally worth it.

Plus, I occasionally get chuckles from colleagues when the wolves start howling!

Helps keep the wolves of distraction at bay

I've used this simple and effective timer for years to keep myself on point. The countdown clock sits in the menu bar for at-a-glance reference or it can be enlarged to fullscreen for times when I'm working across the room from my laptop.

The sound settings can be customized, but I have a deep respect for the default sounds. The crows start to gather in the distance as the countdown approaches zero. Then the wolf howls at the moon. I am left to consider: Am I on the right path or does the danger draw near?
