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.

I LOVE this app! A couple of requests...

Ellerooful

This app is the best for those who need a little visual stimulation and extra incentive to stay productive. I truly hate exiting the app during a work session (thus killing my little sapling), and I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing my daily forest grow. The app has kept me from getting distracted by calls, texts, and web-browsing on many occasions.

A couple of requests: I would love more kinds of ambient sounds to be added to the "store." Also, please create a version for Mac desktop to keep us chronic procrastinators from using distracting apps and websites there! I know that a basic version of Forest exists as a Chrome extension, but it lacks a lot of my favorite features from the app, and doesn't currently block distracting desktop apps. I'm not such a fan of Chrome, anyway (I prefer Safari). In any case, keep up the fantastic work! Oh! And go check out the SleepTown app by the same developer. It uses the same concept to help people develop better sleep habits, and I can verify that it helps with getting a good night's sleep!

Fantastic!

This app has truly assisted me in staying focused on all my homework that i’m getting as i’ve got a lot going on between ap classes, music dedications & the track season coming up. i’ve always had a really bad habit of playing on my phone instead of completing the assignments i should. it’s caused me to loose a lot of sleep and this app has definitely helped with that. overall i totally recommend this app for anyone who has that annoying habit to procrastinate when you shouldn’t.

on a side note though my friends and i typically converse about homework and check our answers with one another trough texting and after i’ve planted a tree i cannot respond back, which is the whole point, but id like to see a way i could pause the growth of my tree for say 5 minutes to allow myself to review the information that’s being passed on to me. it kinda goes against what this app is for but i feel it would be beneficial especially for students who regularly converse over their assignments

The updates and tree variety keep me hooked

Immaculate Misconception

I have a newborn son, and we have a routine. He wakes me up about an hour to two hours before I’d normally be up for work. I plant a two-hour tree with Forest and I play with my boy. It was hard at first, because babies don’t appear terribly interesting at times, and I’ve had such a long-time habit of checking the morning news on my phone. But when I plant a tree in the morning, I am so focused on my boy and no longer tempted to read or check my phone. He has my complete attention.

My wife and I also plant trees right before we sit down to dinner with our kids or watch a movie with them. Forest really helps us to be and stay present with our family.

I’ve tried other apps that had similar concepts of growing plants and trees, and when they stopped updating I got bored. Forest has a wonderful variety and updates that have kept me hooked and interested.
