Pretty cool! - I downloaded the free version to time myself when iPhone distracts me too much to use the timer on it :o) App works great, haven't had any glitches with it and it is very easy to use! I like the idea of the birds starting to play when a few seconds are left and it gradually gets louder to a wolf howl. Much less "alarming" than just a plain buzzer, great for studying because you aren't completely startled when you hear it and your concentration isn't broken, I have enough time to at least finish my thought! I will probably use it for other activities as well because with the volume up I can hear it howl throughout my house! Also comes with a converter which I haven't used but is a nice addition.

Review by Skeus

Simple, Effective - Does what it says, I use it mostly for not being on social media for too long. For example I'll set it for 5 minutes and title it "Get off Facebook". Simple, effective timer. I have not upgraded, the basic is fine for me. Nice app!

Review by sonamdolma

I love you, Howler!!!! - Thanks for this timer. I was surprised how difficult it was to find a good timer and stopwatch counter with audio. I like the loop feature in Howler Pro, well worth the little price. If the developer plans to do any future upgrades, it’d be fun to have more sounds. I love the wolf and the crow; More creatures (and other sounds) would be awesome! Also, if I had my every wish, I was originally looking for an app that could be set to count down ten second intervals as, “10, 20, 30 . . . “ so I wouldn’t have to count the reps in my workout. As it turned it, it was hard just to find a timer that was accurate or made any sounds at all. So I was THRILLED to find not only a timer that did these things reliably, but also could open several timers at once, and allow me to save my favorite timers~ AND with the unexpected surprise of having lots of personality, too (I love the howling wolf interface!) When the wolf howls at the moment I have finally completed my routine, I feel like a real champion! Thank you, Howler Timer~ I’ll be looking forward for any future updates, but I am happy and having fun with this just as it is, too. (:

Not very helpful - I have other things to do rather than sit here watching the timer count down, but if I cover it with another program, at some point it resets and stops running. Not very helpful.
