Howl won't waste your time

We know you are busy. With Howl, there’s no endless scrolling or useless notifications. Our proprietary upvote/downvote feature allows Howl Neighbors to upvote the content that is most helpful and relevant, and downvote (anonymously) the noise of trolls, spam, and politics. We only send notifications when it’s urgent, or when a neighbor on your street posts in your Street Group. When you hear from Howl, it’s important.
