If you want to temporarily put down your phone and focus on what’s more important in real life, you can plant a seed in Forest. As time goes by, this seed will gradually grow into a tree. However, if you cannot resist the temptation of using your phone and leave the app, your tree will wither. The sense of achievement and responsibility will encourage you to stay away from your phone, and will help you make better use of your time. Stop getting distracted by your phone, make you self-motivated and get more things done. Stay focused. Be present! STAY FOCUSED: • Function based on the Pomodoro technique (a.k.a. tomato timer, pomodoro timer) • Plant lovely trees and stay focused on what’s more important in real life. • Turn your focused moments into a lush forest. GET MOTIVATED • Earn rewards and unlock new tree species. • Share your forest and compete with friends and users around the world. • Plant trees along with friends & family. • Unlock achievements and earn extra rewards. • Plant real trees on Earth and protect the environment with tree-planting organization Trees for the Future. STATISTICS • Manage your own tags and view detailed statistics of your time distribution. • Browse your weekly, monthly and even your yearly big forest. • Track your focused time in Mindful Minutes of Apple Health App. • Track your daily phone usage and screen time. • Recall memories of your planting journey with our brand new Forest Timeline!

  • Amazing

    Now I eat food slowly. It really enhances my happiness!
  • Requires too much work

    Yeah, it keeps you off your phone, but you have to manually plant trees and they only last up to 2 hours. Which means you have to check it every 2 hours. I would rather stay off it the whole day and come back to a beautiful forest. The one really cool thing is that you can save up “money” to plant real trees across the globe.
  • Yes, it Really Does Work

    You might be skeptical of this app. You might be thinking, “What’s going to stop me from just not doing my work and watching the timer run out?” It’s a valid objection. This app is great at helping you help yourself. It’s n o t going to make you all of sudden want to do work. But if you get distracted, or you’re procrastination monkey is strong, this app w i l l help you. You’ll be surprised by just how little time you actually spend working each day, but astounded by how much work you’re now able to finish. Get the app if you want to do work but just never get down to it. Don’t get the app if you don’t want to work.

    By Walkingtrashcan
    I’m a HUGE fidgeter. Using this for studying in grad school kept me sane, and I still use it today for work meetings. I have recommended this app countless times. It is SO worth the minimal cost.

    Helps me stay on task without getting distracted. Gives me motivation to not kill a tree because I could get a cute forest. Considering I’m addicted to my phone, this helps me a lot!
  • Solid Resource

    Healthy screen-time management, and focus, wrapped up in one. If it isn’t for you, it’s likely because you’re incapable of accepting your technological addiction.
