## Top productivity app in 126 countries. More than 2 million satisfied paying users. Featured in Apple's "Amazing Apps" TV commercial. ## Over 340,000 real trees were planted on Earth by our users. ## Staying focused with the cutest gamified pomodoro timer. “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! 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 the Apple Health App. • Track your daily phone usage and screen time. • Recall memories of your planting journey with our brand new Forest Timeline!

  • Great for procrastinators

    By xxexfxx
    I can set regular timers but I’ll just ignore them, scrolling on instagram til the timer goes off, and then hit restart. Once the tree is planted, though, it’s study time. The option to plant trees with friends makes it even better because my friends can motivate me without even being there! This is an app worth buying. I raved about this app forever but I know everyone’s apprehensive about paying for apps. I tricked my friends into buying this app by saying “hey, can I have $2?” And when they said sure, I told them “cool, I need it to buy this app on your phone”. 😈 They end up thanking me!! Nobody will regret having this little app on their phone!! Highly recommend!

    This is a helper for those enticed by their devices super easily lost in social media apps. Love to use it for vital extensive study sessions.
  • Excellent App

    By Richyrichmd
    I only wish that trees were cheaper to acquire with the in-game currency.
  • It helps, but its the same-old thing every time

    By Stephs_i_phone
    I use this app throughout the week to help me put down my phone and concentrate on the work I need to get done, without distraction - and it works for me. I have been using this for weeks and I just wish I could unlock new trees and new features, I don't understand their point system at all. I also have no idea how long it would take to plant a real tree- maybe a year or more worth of time.
  • Thank you!

    By natadelrey
    I totally recommend this to anyone looking for extra motivation to stay focused on schoolwork! Keeps me off my phone, which can be a huge issue for me. 5 stars😍
  • Request

    By PRND
    I love the app, but please make an option for the bushes to be up to 30 minutes long.
  • Love it

    Helps me focus!
  • Tags should be accessible before a session

    By rand(10)
    I find inconvenient to not be able to choose a Tag before starting a session. I think Tags should be on the same screen with plant button. Thanks for this useful app.
  • Working for me!

    By the slow PT
    I get chronically behind in my paperwork at work, forest has been helping me set realistic time limits to try and finish one paper at a time. I also am really motivated by the chance that I might get enough points to plant a real tree!
