## Staying focused with the cutest gamified pomodoro timer. ## Over 300,000 real trees were planted on Earth by our users. ## Number 1 app in 113 countries. More than 1 million satisfied paying users. Featured in Apple's "Amazing Apps" TV commercial. 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 the 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.

    Guilty of always looking at my phone when I should be working! This app totally helps to resist the temptation!
  • One of my favorite apps EVER!!!

    By LosAngelesPianist
    I have been using the app for a little less than a week, and I have definitely been more productive since using it. Feels like I’m playing a game, being productive, and helping the environment at the same time. Thank you guys!!!
  • Useful if you use it

    By Shshshsh1986
    Useful if you use it. As with any of these kinds of products, there is always an element of making yourself do a thing, but if you can get into it, the gamification part of the app and the structured timing is nice. I do wish that it was smoother to just go from taking a break to growing another tree, and maybe have the ability to actually set up a series of recurring grow/break cycles. Maybe say you want to work for 2 hours with set grow/break times that keep repeating until the 2 hours is up. Overall a good tool.

  • Great study tool

    By minttoann
    I have a lot of studying to do for school, and Forest helps me study in blocks of time so I do not burn out. I love that I can now accomplish my study goals without distractions getting in the way! This is a prepopulated review. However, it is not inaccurate.
  • It’s getting me through med school!

    By Igotbigproblems
    It’s getting me through med school right now. Works great and helps me keeper focused for long study sessions
  • Great way to game my productivity

    By litsy
    I’m really enjoying using Forest. I used to use a timer on my phone to employ the « pomodoro » method but with Forest I have extra motivation because I’m earning trees and hope to one day earn enough virtual trees to plant a real one!
  • Improves Focus

    By Pandr3w101
    I use this for my study sessions and it has honestly made such a difference in my focus. I started with only being able to focus for about 20 minutes at a time but because of this app, I can easily study for 3 whole hours. Definitely recommend ❤️
