For those that might not know, chasing Public Events in Destiny is one of the easiest ways to farm Vanguard Marks, Vanguard Rep, and Ascendant Materials. All this is necessary if you want to level up past 20 and gain items like legendary armor and those pesky Ascendant Shards to level up that armor. Of course Public Events are just random occurring events in the game, right? Nope. They are actually set to a timer that goes off at specific times on the hour. Those who have been playing Destiny long enough know of these timers but there are probably those who still don’t. Basically these times tell you when and where Public Events will occur. There is a website that does this pretty well, but if you prefer apps, there is the Destiny Timers app that seems to work just as well with a couple extra features.
The main difference between this app and the website that everyone uses is that this app arranges Purblic Events based on time, regardless of what planet they are on. So if you’re in orbit, you can choose what planet to go to based on which one has an event coming up. If you rather concentrate on a specific planet, you can use filters on the app to only show you what will appear on that planet.
Another thing this app does that’s different is that it also gives you timers for when other events occur, such as when Xur will be back in the tower, when venders will restock their items, and when weekly events get reset.
Overall, the Destiny Timers app offers a lot of info for a free app. It’s a nice alternative source for timers when the main site everyone uses is down.

The ultimate companion for Bungie’s hit game Destiny. This app gives you clean, easy to follow timers for every known public event on Earth, the Moon, Venus and Mars, as well as convenient timers for daily/weekly resets such as bounties and raids.
Timers are frequently updated over the network, you won’t need to update your app to get fresh timers! (Internet connection required for this feature, otherwise it will fall back to the timer manifest included with the app).
