  • Great app

    By Material guy
    I love this app I am a huge procrastinator so I Highly recommend this app. This keeps me on task and I think that it is worth the money. However I wish you could organize the trees instead of them being placed randomly. At first this app seemed like a waste of time and I thought I could find loopholes through this. But when you kill a tree it just leaves you devastated for some reason and it encourages you to work harder. 10/10 recommend this app to everybody

    I love the app but it doesn't stop you from getting distracted by other stuff and you can just grow trees without having to focus, well I don't expect it to control everything that we can do but on the bright side it has very cute little trees and it was a great idea 💡 to create this app. But I bought a bush and I didn't have it!? I don't know what happened.
  • This helps a lot

    I like the variety of trees
  • Useful timer for Pomodoro Technique

    Use this app everytime I study, fast simple and they'll plant a tree if you get enough points. I recommend to anyone who is tempted by their phone too, it's really good at making you feel bad about killing a tree. 6/5
  • Good but should have more than 2h

    By jerlyn yeo
    2h is too short and if I want to plant more trees I will have to use my phone which makes me distracted. Perhaps 4-5 hours would be a good time.
  • Instant gains

    I had a REALLY bad day of studying yesterday. That’s what prompted me to download this, and so far I don’t regret the purchase. It helped me focus for 140 minutes already and I plan on using it more in the coming weeks. Surprisingly the incentive really is there for me. I love phone games, which is part of what distracts me from my studying in the first place, and this method works great with my compulsive personality. So far I enjoy setting my goals in shorter increments of time, 30 minutes or less. When my phone goes off, that tree almost fully grown gives me a little extra resolve to ignore that text (it can wait, after all) while I finish up what I’m studying. Keeps me on task, when those small breaks to check Facebook, texts, or games often spiral into an hour of scrolling. Productivity also has another purpose with this app. It’s nice that someday soon I could use my points earned to plant a tree in real life, though I wish there was a separate currency for this as I’d also love to have more species of trees for my forest. Earnings so far are really slow since I only use the app for studying, and then in fairly small increments. I think it will be a while before I can afford any cosmetics, much less a real tree. Like another reviewer, I’d appreciate some sort of whitelist that does not penalize for using certain apps. Forest lets you access other applications but will cut your earnings in half if you select that option. It’s better than nothing, but I do like to use Quizlet on my phone. Overall, great app! Really helps with studying.
  • It's great for keeping from checking my phone, but it crashes from time to time

    By Apple banana red
    When it crashes I need to turn my phone on and off to get the app to work - using iPhone 6

    Excellent idea to keep you focus, rewards you for it, and you he to review how long you focus on a nice display. Just need a bit more content.
