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.

Time to focus on the forest

Minty Selkie

For those that want to keep track of how long you’re on the phone and or who want to keep track for the amount of time you’re concentrating on one task, this is the app for you.
The purpose is simple: allot a specific amount of time to an activity, the app will “plant” a tree and you have to not use your phone for other means, otherwise the tree will die. If you complete the portion of time, you will be rewarded with a tree and coins to spend on a variety of things.
Despite the simple premise, the developer has made sure to You can tag each tree so you know. Said tags can be customised to suit one’s needs. One can even add a description if they choose to to elaborate more on it. If you have enough coins, you can invest in new types of trees.
I will say that it’s not a fail safe though. After all, one can easily be distracted by a new activity to occupy their time. You do a have a limited amount of time on the clock that can be recorded (between 10 minutes to 120 minutes). There is also the fact that one can only earn coins through planting trees, and the only way to increase the number of coins you earn is through micro transactions. While I don’t mind it, I realise it’s an important thing to address.
I haven’t mentioned all the features but, all in all, it’s an app that does it’s job. It has a good UI, plenty of customisation, and lots to discover.

Perfect for Revision!


I never leave reviews for apps because I feel I have better things to do, but I cannot emphasise enough how worth it the £1.99 I paid for this app was! I’m currently going through my GCSEs, I take them next summer. This App was recommended to my whole school year by one of our teachers to help us with Pomodoro Studying, and I’ve never been so motivated! The app could just use a couple of tweaks, but other than that I have no complaints! I feel the need to study because otherwise the little sad face sign that’s on your daily refreshed garden if you haven’t done anything make me feel really guilty! I feel pressured to study in the good kind of way, and it’s really helping me! I managed to get a really high mark in Chemistry for an end of topic test that I wasn’t present for, for most of the teaching due to ill health - that made me feel amazing! I feel like I’m finally regaining those top marks I’d started to lose since my younger years, let’s hope that this sticks around!! Thank You!!!
