Have you ever been addicted to your phone and just cannot put it down? Forest provides an interesting solution to beat your phone addiction. You can plant a seed in Forest. In the following time, this seed will gradually grow into a tree. However, if you cannot resist the temptation and leave this app to check Facebook or play a game, your tree will wither away. With this interesting mechanism, the sense of achievement and responsibility will drive our users to stay away from their phone with no pain.

I LOVE this app! A couple of requests...
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!
The updates and tree variety keep me hooked
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.
One of my favorite apps...
I mistakenly said this app was missing a feature which it actually does have. I wouldn’t have noticed if it wasn’t for the quick and friendly response by the app developer. That just goes to show that these guys really do care about their users’ experience.
This is a great app. It helps keep me away from the phone. The previous version gave you extra coins if you stayed off your phone longer than your set time. Now it only gives you coins based on your set time. The drawback to this is that you have to repeatedly go back and set a new goal once the time is up if you want to be rewarded. That means being distracted by having to reach your phone. Overall, a useful app, just a little less than before.
