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!

  • This app is not for me

    By Ashjann
    This app is meant to be, maybe a positive reward system by seeing your tree grow, but for me, it is negative reinforcement, by watching my tree die. If you “make a mistake” aka, getting a phone call or message from work, you get penalized. Yes there is a setting where you can allow for things like important texts, but then it’s a may or may not need to step away from the app yet you are forfeiting rewards you could earn. I don’t want to use the app at all bc I don’t want to be responsible for killing one of my trees. I’m sure this app works for some people though.
  • love it!

    By Daniel3216
    This app basically makes you obsessed with staying away from the #1 productivity killer, YOUR PHONE. Love the simplicity of the concept, great job 👍
  • Simple and effective!

    By Jess.McC.
    I love the minimalist design and simplicity of this app. It’s easy to use and VERY effective. You can change the setting so you get extra ‘rewards’ for going over your allotted time away too, which is cool. I’m really glad I found this thing!
  • Weirdly effective

    By ZadockPratt
    I love this app, and I particularly love that it lets you contribute your imaginary points to Trees for the Future to grow real trees
  • Forest is phenomenal

    By Oobleshmerfadarkle
    I use it every day to stay on task!
  • Super cool

    By Ebnyasser
    This app is one of my all time favorite apps. I feel good every time I use it even when I am not pleased with the activity I am doing. I wish we could put more music, such as binaural beats. Also I love the purpose of the app; very morally motivating. I wished we could also use our phones for certain things. I find this app to be truly revolutionary. This app are for people who seek personal development, office workers, entrepreneurs, meditators and even kids. You have to try this app, with sincerity and an open mind.
  • Life changing

    By Iltb
    I had this bad habit of checking a text and then being on my phone for hours. However, this app has changed all my habits. Knowing that I have the opportunity to help the environment just by staying focused helped me to focus on other things in my life. I’ve taken up new hobbies, resumed old ones, read over 10 books, and improved my study habits because of this app. I will admit that sometimes it’s a tad annoying if I need to answer a message or if I want to look something up for school, but this app serves its purpose, and I highly recommend it to everyone.
