"Forest works well, and if your goal is to be more in the moment, ignore your phone and actually talk to your friends when you are with them, this is the app for you."— The New York Times "In order to establish new, better habits, it's helpful to engage with tools that make it easier to reinforce them. For anyone looking to curtail their phone usage, the Forest app might be for you."— Business Insider 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!

    This App will help you as a remainder but I do expect more functionalities coming up to make using it more exciting.
  • Really nice productivity app

    I love this app. It’s useful for the same reasons as many Pomodoro technique apps, but I love the added ability to see my progress as a Forest, and to unlock new trees. I would like this app to add a timer to the lock screen and a timer viewable from the Apple Watch app, then it would be perfect!
  • Favorite App!!

    This app really helps me focus on homework and it allows me to get things done faster. It also helps because it makes me feel bad that if I leave the app, I kill the tree I had planted. The money system is a little messed up but its still really nice, and I especially love the fact that if you get enough coins, you can plant a real tree! It’s really motivating for me and it helps me cut down my screen time. I really like this app and totally recommend it!
  • Eh 🤦🏽‍♀️

    The idea is brilliant. You make a forest out of trees you obtain each time you study. However, it takes forever to gain enough coins to purchase a new tree. A new one costs 500 coins. You barely get any coins after 1 session. They should not make it so difficult to get couns.

    This app it’s awesome! I love trees and this lets me get my stuff done while after so many grown trees get to plant a real one! Becomes kinda like a little goal that allows to much more growth in life by staying away from your iPhone and focusing on getting your stuff done!;)

    let me just say that this is hands down the BEST app i have ever paid money for. at first when i bought this app, last year, i wasn’t really in the right mindset to make the most of it. i didn’t really use it and felt no motivation to use it. but this year i decided i wanted to be more productive, and not waste time on my phone. when the new school year started, i had a system: get home from school. eat a snack. browse social media for 10-15 minutes MAX. then i’d go to my room and open the forest app, and set it to 25 minutes. for 25 minutes i do nothing but the task i have in front of me, no distractions, ringer off. when the 25 minutes are up, i set the break timer to 2-5 minutes, depending on how hard the task was. during this time i get some water or a snack, stretch, do a mini workout (pull-ups are a quick one), answer any texts, or go outside for some fresh air. then when my timer is up, i get back to work and do another 25 minutes. and i keep doing this until i’m about halfway through with all of my work for the day, and i take a 10 minute break to really process the information i took notes on or just take a break. then i get back to work and repeat the 25 minutes of work, 2-5 minute break cycle. this system has COMPLETELY changed how i get my work done. instead of procrastinating and doing it all last minute, or doing 2-3 hours with no breaks, i do a decent amount of work with enough break time in between that i don’t get too exhausted. one thing if you try to use this method or something similar—while you’re on the break in between work sessions, i recommend NOT going through social media. answering texts is fine, but i find that for me if i look at social media it’s very hard to go back to work, and i ignore the “get back to work!” notifications. even if you don’t use this exact system, or something similar, i recommend taking a few breaks because it really does help you understand what you are actually doing. my grades have gone up a lot after i started using the app for homework, and i have much more free time to do fun things once i’m done with all my homework. i highly recommend this app to anyone who has work or homework they have to do, and anyone who has a phone and struggles with putting it down and not getting distracted. i’m sorry this is such a long review, it’s the only review i’ve ever written for anything. i just felt that people should know how amazing this app is and how it can completely change your life! also as a bonus when you complete your 25 minutes or whatever time you set, you get credits which you can use to get new types of trees, or if you want you can use them to plant real trees in real life! in conclusion. BUY THIS APP :)
