• Some bug fixes
Great for boring projects or when distracted
Been using this app for about a year. I use it mostly in the afternoon when I don't want to focus and feel distracted. When I rather waste time on reddit instead of doing work. Times like that Forest has been very helpful. I set it for 10 mins or 15 mins. Start the timer and am able to get started. Often, I'll end up working for a lot longer. But sometime I'll stop after the 10 or 15 min session and take a break. Then I'll start another short session. It's been amazing for working more effectively especially on boring projects.
The best is that I can use all that accumulated focus time to plant a real tree somewhere out there! Genius!
Unique app to solve many problems
I used to have a massive issue with procrastination and not doing homework, studying, and meditation. This app has helped me do my homework, study, workout, do meditation, stop using my phone, and becoming a overall more concentrated person. This app holds me responsible by planting bushes and trees and prevents me from exiting the app for more than around 10 seconds. It's also really great because I can close my phone with the app still running and I can still receive important calls from others when the app is on- so God forbid anything bad happens, I can still be available.
I love it
I don't usually pay for apps, but I am desperate for a solution to my decent grades. I know they could be better if I had better time management skills. Our brains love rewards, and this app perfect fits with the work-hard-earn-reward system built within us. For example, I use this app often, so I can get enough coins to buy the cherry blossom tree (my favorite scent in bath & body works). In addition, this app has inspired to find other ways of staying focused, like bullet journaling. Combine bullet journaling with this app, and you got yourself an organized lifestyle. All I need to do now is stop procrastinating. Cool app!!!
