Forest - Stay focused App Description

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!

  • Good App

    By dpie77
    Helpful so far! I’ve only had it for a while. It’s cute and has helped me realize how little I actually focus on classes during the day.
  • Extremely well done.

    By Brian Issaquah
    Pitch perfect. Thanks for your extremely thoughtful, smart, and enjoyable app. I’ve used a few other methods from a watch timer, post-it notes, and other apps with some success. But this app has easily been the most helpful and most enjoyable. Highly recommend it! Good luck everyone!
  • Useful in med school!

    By katema0
    Very helpful.
  • Day 2 fun so far!

    By Orlanda Arroyo
    It is nice to put your phone on hold for a couple of mins a day.I’ve used it to do a special work task or while spending time with friends.
  • Idea is great, execution is lacking

    By Kylodean
    I give 4 stars. The final star lacking because the developers kinda missed imo. The idea is great and I have definitely been more productive using this app. Only thing is, I've never seen a forest grow on a grid. Some sort of more realistic forest that I can be proud of! Instead of something that looks like the starting land on SimCity.

    I enjoy the app very much, it helps me stay focused while doing my school work and keeps me off of my phone watching YouTube videos. Even when I am not doing work but just want myself to stay off my phone it is helpful. I love this app totally worth it!
  • Great motivating app

    By ktdc123
    I like this app! Helps me retrain my impulse to check my phone a million times for absolutely no reason.
  • Worth every penny!

    By doughnuts_are_da_bomb
    I looked high and low for an app that would help me break the habit of checking my phone so much. I watched a TED talk about how we often look at breaking habits the wrong way; we need little “rewards” as we replace a bad habit with a better one - in this case, planting a tree. I hope this app is on my phone for many years to come. Thank you, Forest!
  • Eh

    By shannonkilfoy
    It seems weird to me that you would have to buy trees in order to customize and create a more colorful forest, even though the app is already paid. Also your forest refreshes every day so it’s not like you have one beautiful and massive forest. I like the idea that if you work hard enough you can plant a tree in real life but it would take so long to do that based on how many points you need to acquire, I’m skeptical of how many trees have actually been planted due to this app. I’ve tried many pomodoro apps (seriously, at least 10 of them), and I’ve found Pops to be the best. It’s free and more effective. You have to put your phone face down during the session, and the phone flashes when the work session is over.
  • Amazing!

    This has been the only app that has actually worked in keeping me focused. I love that there’s also a google chrome extension so that when I need to focus on my work, I can avoid distractions both on my phone and on useless websites. The absolute cherry on top is that this is all for a great cause and that by focusing, not only will that reward myself, but it will also help plant trees in various developing countries! It’s so great that not only does this app absolutely work, but it’s also benefits others as well :)
