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! NOTICE • Forest is an app available for both iPhone and iPad, and can be accessed across all iOS devices with a one-time purchase. To download or unlock non iOS version of Forest, this requires a separate purchase.

  • Nice focusing app!

    By Dr. TD
    I love it! If I find myself spending too much time on social media, I can count on Forest to keep me on track.
  • I️ really like this app

    By Cupcske_357
    I really like this app because it encourages me to stay off of my phone. The only thing I don’t like about this app is that you can’t take a break once the seed is planted which is really frustrating because it kills your plant. But other than that it’s a great app!
  • Essential for College & ADHD People

    By iAmAPotatoMaster
    I been using this app for a year now and it has changed my life. I am a college student with ADHD. This helps me stay on task and be less distracted. It’s also good to know you’re helping a great cause. Whoever created this is a genius! I rarely buy anything in the App Store, but this was worth every penny.

  • Review

    By Annie Harrison
    I enjoy this app because the idea of being able to plant real trees and sometimes a digital forest motivates me to focus and I’m much more productive. Having to work to get the other ambient sounds makes me work much harder.
  • Tagging doesn’t work

    By byebye429
    This app is good but there’s no way clear way to change tags. It’s stuck on one and when I try to select another tag when I do a different task it doesn’t work. App developers need to put clear instructions on how to change tags or make the process clearer. I can’t give this app anymore stars until this poor UI design is fixed.
  • Update Problems

    By This binch
    The most recent update keeps crashing my app after seconds of opening it. I tried closing and reopening the app, turning off and on my phone, and deleting and redownloading the app but none of it worked. And now I lost all the trees I planted bc I deleted the app 😩 pls fix this I just bought the app a couple days ago
  • Increasing prices

    By iphone_zelmi
    I honestly love this app, and it does exactly what it’s supposed to do, BUT WHY DO THE PRICES OF PLANTS ALWAYS INCREASE?! It’s like every time I save up enough to buy one, the price has increased and then I gotta keep saving. 😣☹️
  • Great for helping you stay off your phone when you work

    By brainfeeder
    I never use my phone when I’m using this app. It does an excellent job of keeping me focused on my work. I would recommend for anyone who wants to increase the duration of their work sessions as well as improve their quality.
