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. • Plant trees along with friends & family. • Unlock achievements and earn extra rewards. • Plant real trees on Earth and protect the environment with tree-planting organization Trees for the Future. STATISTICS • Manage your own tags and view detailed statistics of your time distribution. • Browse your weekly, monthly and even your yearly big forest. • Track your focused time in Mindful Minutes of Apple Health App. • Track your daily phone usage and screen time. • Recall memories of your planting journey with our brand new Forest Timeline! NOTICE • Forest is an app available for both iPhone and iPad, and can be accessed across all iOS devices with a one-time purchase. To download or unlock non iOS version of Forest, this requires a separate purchase. However, by logging into the same account, the account data can be synchronized across all platforms. • Due to budget constraint, the number of real trees each user can plant is limited to five. We will be introducing limited time events that will allow users to plant more real trees. Please follow our social media page or check the in-app announcement for more updates. • There is only one version of Forest on the App Store. Other apps that are similar and mimics Forest are not developed by the Forest team. Thank you for your support!

    Love the ability to tag your trees.
  • Love this app

    By Olive.juice
    This app has allowed me to focus and the fact that it uses trees as a metaphor for accomplishment is great!
  • Good app, need some improvements

    By Nemo's Reviews
    Good app. However the coins needed for the other plants are way out of reach until you’ve been using the app for a long time. Also I think there should be an option where you can disable notifications for the time you are studying for.
  • Great take on Time management

  • Brilliant in its simplicity

    This is the only app that I have tried that that succeeds in keeping me away from my phone when I'm supposed to be working. Instead of tracking usage like other apps(many of which require intrusive location permissions), it takes a completely different approach that actually works. If you fail or cheat, your tree dies and you get to keep the dead ones in your forest forever. It's much more fun than a bunch of charts and reminders...and surprisingly more effective.

    I love this app it keeps me from playing Fortnite so I can study without thinking about it. I use it a lot especially with the finals I am in the middle of. I recommend this is anyone who can’t leave their dang phone alone for more than 2 seconds. Anyways, works great and I have no complaints. It does what it says it does and I use it a lot.
  • Great app helps with time and planting real trees

    Needs more types of bushes and trees! Also, the option to follow your friends if they have android and don’t pay the full version of the app
  • Surprisingly well done

    By DKguy
    Great job in making pomodoro timer plus forest abstraction work so well. Adding ability to start timer on Apple Watch plus tighter integration of Chrome Plugin (or full Mac app) would put it over the top. Bonus points for Trello integration. Being able to see how much time I focus on each Trello card would be awesome. Keep it up!
  • excellent
