"Forest works well, and if your goal is to be more in the moment, ignore your phone and actually talk to your friends when you are with them, this is the app for you."— The New York Times "In order to establish new, better habits, it's helpful to engage with tools that make it easier to reinforce them. For anyone looking to curtail their phone usage, the Forest app might be for you."— Business Insider 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!

  • Encouraging

    By Francie Dancy
    This app has done wonders for my time management for four years straight now. It’s encouraging for anyone who has a tendency to stop working to look at their phone. My social media urges no longer interfere when I get done with my schoolwork. Because I’m able to set the time limit for myself, it feels very goal oriented. Best $0.99 I’ve ever spent. With each successful session without opening other apps on your phone, you’re rewarded with coins, which can be used to “fund” the planting of a real tree somewhere on this earth. It’s a satisfying and useful app that I would 100% recommend to anyone.
  • I love it

  • My favorite app

    By AndrewLawrenceBN
    Totally life-changing. Brilliant.
  • Great app for study motivation

    By Toxic_Husky7973
    This app is a really great app for focusing and motivation! When I set the timer, I feel obligated to spend every last second studying. I also love the little rewards in this app! It’s truly a life saver for those who have the attention span of a goldfish (me)!
  • The best 1.99 I have ever spent

    By Darren A.S Candelaria
    This app has changed the way I go about studying and focusing. It helps to have a numerical and visual representation of how much I have actually been studying and working, and be able to hold myself accountable. I’ve been trying to plant 3 25 minute trees a day and I’m currently 112 trees in!
  • Branching off the phone

  • Great for managing distractions

    By ShigginJigz
    I struggle with ADD and I absolutely love this app. I use it not only for my phone but on my computer as well (it offers a Firefox and Chrome extension). It is well worth the money just in the time it has saved alone. Would be nice if it had a blackout mode for the internet on computer, maybe that’s for a future update but as for now I’m certainly content.
  • Rooms and groups

    By TechMechRex
    I just downloaded the app and I like its concept for not using my phone. Also, I like the idea of using a room with friends or family to stay focused. However, it is likely that my friends haven’t downloaded this app or are trying to use their phone when I want to use the forest app. It would be great if we could have some kind of profile and join other people’s rooms that we don’t know. Maybe there is a rating system so that you don’t have too many strangers killing your tree in the room.
