Howler is the quickest & easiest way to Document Your Gear and HOWL if something gets stolen! Simply record key information for all your bikes, skis, snowboards, etc. including photos, serial #’s, & descriptions. If something gets stolen, you’ve got ONE place to go to access this critical info and send out a local, shareable Howler Alert.
A Howler Alert instantly notifies other like-minded Howlers around you of your just-stolen gear! To ensure you’re reaching locals wherever you are, we leverage iPhone’s Push Notifications for instant alerts; as well as emailing those who have agreed to Receive Local Howler Alerts by Zip Code. Sending out a Howler Alert is like creating a Virtual Search Party of local, like-minded peeps to keep an eye out for just-stolen gear.
Of course, we also provide you with the tools to share your Howler Alert on all major Social Networks to help spread the word!

The Howler App is also a tool for doing good in the great outdoors! We donate $1.00 from every Howler App purchased to one of several super-awesome nonprofit organizations that do great things like clean up the beaches, mountains, rivers and lakes (Surfrider Foundation, Leave No Trace, American Rivers), work to keep snow on the peaks (Protect Our Winters), take under-served kids to the outdoors (Bay Area Wilderness Training, Stoked Mentoring, SKIDuck), and provide bicycles that open up new possibilities (World Bicycle Relief). Every Howler App download = $1 donated, simple as that. No percentage of sales, no catches, no hidden agenda. Just a desire to give something back to the world and spread some good karma. We feature a different nonprofit partner each month, and you can learn more about all of them on our website.
