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.

Editors' Notes

Motivate yourself to resist distractions from your device.

Not entirely useful


This app is pretty useful when studying because you can't use your phone at all once you start planting your tree, but the downside is that I can still use telegram and whatsapp on my macbook so it's pointless for me. I also end up taking naps during this period of time but this isn't so much of a disadvantage because taking periodical breaks is better than wasting time scrolling through Instagram lol. Is it worth my $3? Probably not. It's a good idea, but it really depends on what you're doing.

Better before update :(


Great app! But it was better when the timer stopped counting when you unlocked the phone. Also it's a pity that we can't choose the break function after returning to the home screen :( which means that if we were to accidentally press it back to the home screen we won't be able to record our break times anymore. But anyway, overall it tracks your activity very well! I enjoy using this app a lot
