"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!

    actually gets me to do my homework
  • Really helpful, would like more customization

    By Rattify
    This really does keep me from getting distracted by my phone. I want the tree to grow and I am motivated not to hurt it. It also works as a timer. You can set it up beside your computer and see the tree grow until it's time for a break. This is a nicely visual method for those of us with terrible time sense, more useful than a numerical countdown. The tree doesn't die instantly if you leave the app. You can switch away for about 3 seconds, which is important for me because I use my phone for music or audio books all day, and a few seconds is just long enough to switch radio stations or whatever. You can also use the lock screen and the camera safely, talk to Siri, and answer phone calls. So all the really important functionality is still available to me. I think the app would be a lot stickier if there were more options for customizing the forest besides unlocking tree types. I would like to arrange my trees and choose background colors and grass colors. I'd also like to be able to zoom in more to see my trees bigger. The Christmas trees were soooo cute and I wish I could keep them! One interesting thing about the app is you can't just buy trees. You can only buy powerups that increase your rewards for using the app. In a way, that's frustrating, because I am impatient haha! But it genuinely motivates me more to use the app. I admire the creator for refusing to take the easy money and ensuring their app is as effective as possible.
  • worth the money

    By divya!!
    great app to use while studying/working. worth the $1.99
  • Add vibration

    By Daxer_
    Please add a phone vibration feature when a tree is finished. I often go over the timer because I am too busy studying and don't check my phone for the time remaining.
  • Best app for studying!

    Love this app, useful for being productive!!!
  • Loving it so far!

    By IndigoMist
    I’ve only just gotten this app but it’s helped my productivity loads! The only problem is when I’m trying to use my phone as a calculator or texting a reply and suddenly my trees die, I wish there was a sort of a pause button on it (even though it’s fine the way it is). I also love how you can buy different trees but I wish there were more achievements that one could unlock, I find myself not having enough money to buy items (especially as the price goes up by 100 coins after every purchase). I also wish there was a setting for longer than 2 hours (I usually go out for longer than that but don’t bring my phone with me and I can’t help but lament the amount of coins I wasn’t getting). Besides that, everything is awesome and this app is definitely worth its price.
