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. Stay focused. Be present! STAY FOCUSED: • Function based on the Pomodoro technique (a.k.a. tomato timer, pomodoro timer) • Plant lovely trees and stay focused on what’s more important in real life. • Turn your focused moments into a lush forest. GET MOTIVATED • Earn rewards and unlock new tree species. • Share your forest and compete with friends and users around the world. • Unlock achievements and earn extra rewards. • Plant real trees on Earth and protect the environment with tree-planting organization Trees for the Future.

    It’s pretty incredible that I can make a tiny difference in a developing country by not using my phone. Love this app!
  • Perfect app, just needs one extra thing..

    By Schu. Zhan
    I definitely love this app and you guys deserve more than 5 stars. But I just want to add one suggestion: can you guys add more special effects like the winter one, and also provide more choices for trees/bushes/etc? Surprises will keep users excited ;) esp those who don't have a big ddl or goal ahead.

    By Greendog31
    Such a very helpful tool! Truly works especially for keeping me off my phone for chunks of time and ironically motivating to see my forest grow and grow :)

    I’m getting so much done with this app!!
  • Get work done!

    By Kellieoctw
    I use this when doing chores, hanging with friends, doing homework, watching movies, basically when I’m doing anything I don’t want interrupted by me instinctually responding to that text. Amazing app for those who have trouble focussing, like me!
  • Please allow phones to lock

  • I’m in love with this app...on accident.

    By Ieuxjdusknchd
    This app was recommended by one of my friends. Don’t get me wrong, I love this app so very much, that even when I drop my phone...I check to see if this app is ok. Ok maybe I don’t do that, but I care a lot about this app. Anyways, my friend recommended this app to me and I was like, “ok”. So I went to the App Store, didn’t see what I was doing, downloaded it, and told me, “thank you for your $1.99 purchase. And I was like WHAT! But its ok that it’s only $2.00 because I FRIGGIN LOVE IT. It has helped me stay organized, on accident. So thank you forest. And thank YOU for reading this very long thing. P.S. you should get it!
  • Very helpful

    I had heard about this app via a podcast and forgot about it. I was reminded recently of it via a vlog and then again on Twitter. I’m so happy I downloaded it. I feel inclined to get more work done and I never want to click “give up” so I make sure I complete whatever allotted time I set!
