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. However, by logging into the same account, the account data can be synchronized across all platforms. • Due to budget constraint, the number of real trees each user can plant is limited to five. We will be introducing limited time events that will allow users to plant more real trees. Please follow our social media page or check the in-app announcement for more updates. • There is only one version of Forest on the App Store. Other apps that are similar and mimics Forest are not developed by the Forest team. Thank you for your support!

  • Nice, Peaceful Little App

    By BJ Nemeth
    I really enjoy using this app, and find it incredibly helpful in keeping my focus on a specific task, like reading or studying or anything that doesn’t require my iPhone. I pick a tree (my favorite is the Apple Tree), set the timer for how long I’d like to focus, and get to work. It’s very simple, as it should be. Then I get to work. And many times I’ll forget and absent-mindlessly reach for my iPhone to check Twitter or something, and this app will remind me to stay focused. (Of course, if you NEED to use your iPhone, just use it normally, and the only penalty is that the “tree” you were growing that session will die, and be part of that day’s yard.) One of my favorite and most important apps on my iPhone. 😀

  • Best App ever

    By qiushuoo
    This is the best app.
  • Very useful but improvement needed

    By benus217
    It’s been very useful since I have started using this tool to track my focus time . I can know how much time I am being productive on daily basis . It let’s you categorize time you spent like Study, Work , Reading etc but it would be great if we can drill down further to understand where exactly the time was spent with respect to those categories
  • amazing app- one suggestion

    By mirasydney
    i love this app. it has really helped me to get off my phone and pay more attention to my surroundings. i especially love the idea that i can plant a real tree. i do have one suggestion, however. i noticed that it costs 2500 “coins” in the app to be able to plant a real tree. i think that this should be a more easily accessible opportunity for users who are new to the app or maybe only stay focused for 10 minutes at a time. i think it’s a great way to help the environment but that we should make it easier, not harder to do.
  • Great

    Very simple, very helpful
  • Seems simplistic, but fills a need well

    By AnnieWB
    I wouldn’t have thought that “giving up” or killing/ growing an animated tree on an app would be an actual lasting boundary to prevent me from thinking twice or three times about whether I really need to use my phone but it does! I also like how this defaults to 25 min chunks of time (like the pomodoro technique)- good for being more accountable to my tasks.
  • Great app
