I need to use it now! 5/5
By Let me go📖
I love that I can go this this app and just start the timer whenever I need to get off my phone and get things done. Like right now, I need to finish my paper.
Make the Apple Watch version better please. 5/5
Please let me use the app on my watch without touching anything on my phone.
Really good app for studying. 5/5
I use this all the time when I study. I always feel guilty killing the plant so it works really well for me.
iPhone Limitation 5/5
Helps me not be one my phone when I shouldn’t be and helps the earth
It helps me a lot! 5/5
I love the color and the background. Maybe we can have more tree species?
Really helps you focus 5/5
This app has helped me so much during finals week because I derp heavily on my phone
I love this app, but it’s giving me issues now! 5/5
I have used this app for a few years and it’s really a wonderful way to put your phone down and stick to it. With the most recent update now though it is letting me navigate away without killing the tree! Please help me I have no discipline! Like I’m growing a tree right now as I type this and it isn’t calling me out on it. Now that I’ve discovered this loophole it renders the app totally ineffective. I’ve never had this issue before though so I’m still giving 5 stars.
Amazing concept 5/5
SUPER effective at getting me to be productive! Other apps that have similar productivity timers don’t have anything to stop me from using my phone while the timer runs. Oftentimes I get sucked into some youtube video and lose my productivity. However, I have a strange emotional attachment to my trees on this app and as a result i stay focused! Great way to build a good habit.
The Only Thing That Keeps Me Off My Phone 5/5
This app is an absolute gem! I used to have the hardest time staying off my phone even while working on projects for fun, but the motivation that comes with watching a tree, and then a forest, grow because I took the time away has been a revelation. Please keep up the good work, the new tree species, and the seasonal events!
The phone app and chrome extension are a life changer. Super helpful whenever I'm getting school work done
Completely wonderful and helpful
winter theme is wonderful! 5/5
Thank you and I hope there is going to be more themes. It is quite a motivation.
I really love this app 5/5
I wish more of my friends used it! It would be fun to have that accountability. Anyways, I have found no other app that keeps me off my phone and working at whatever I’m doing like the Forest App does. I love my cute little trees. And I love the seasonal stuff too! Thanks for keeping me focused. :-)
Love it! 5/5
I absolutely love this app, it keeps me off my phone and focused on my work! however there is one thing i would like, which is to be able to have a 1 minute break or pause button so i can look something up or use my phone calculator. other than that i totally recommend this app, it is SO worth the price
silly game? maybe.
distraction deterrent? definitely.
Great timer app to stay focused! 5/5
I like this app! I’m using it daily to help me stay focused doing different tasks.
It’d be nice to have a wider variety of background sounds :)
Great app. 4/5
It would be perfect it had a pause button.
If you want to be more productive and less distracted... 5/5
If you want to be more productive and less distracted by your phone, consider purchasing this app.
It's been working very well - I plant my trees and leave my phone alone during hours. In the end of the day I have produced more than usual and I also have a little forest. I also like saving the money (reward) I get to buy different types of trees.
Lost my coins 1/5
There was a time when I was saving coins for the past few days and then one day when I opened the app, all the coins I worked so hard were gone. Sent a feedback regarding this but there was no response. It was disappointing.
Great for Exams 5/5
This helped me greatly when studying for exams, it helped keep me focused
Honestly the best 2 bucks I’ve ever spent 5/5
So incredibly helpful for breaking a tough habit I never even realized I’d developed. Helps to keep me focused and productive! THANK YOU
I absolutely LOVE this app. I’ve had NO problems so far. I use it all the time and it’s so helpful and motivating! The only thing that could make it cooler is if the tree gradually drew instead of just jumping to different things as that time is passed, but it’s still really cool
Good incentive to focus 4/5
Love this app SO much but I wish the snow and extra holiday decorations would show in the weekly and monthly views instead of just daily. In general it’s AMAZING for productivity and has helped me a lot!
This is the best. 5/5
I’m an environmental engineer so this app employs the tree hugger inside of me. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to turn it off and when it says “are you sure you want to kill your tree?” I just can’t do it. Brilliantly designed. Large fan.
Great app ideal to reduce screen time for kids. 5/5
Great app ideal to reduce screen time for kids.
This app has really helped me improve my focus and quality of the work I need to do. The new update that helps track how much time spent on each tag is also really helpful as it helps me track how I divide my time between tasks. I really recommend this if you always get distracted by social media/the Internet/etc. :)
Literally have been using for two+ years now, 100% worth it
Great app, but now it won’t let me log out and sign back in 4/5
I was trying to use forest today, but it said my session was timed out so I tried to log out, but the log in button never showed up and it wouldn’t let me log off. This is happening on both of my computers as well.
Unable to login!!! Not working 1/5
I get the error message "some error happened" and I'm unable to login. This is very frustrating because my account was also not synced during my last planting which was two hours long!! I thought it was an error with the app so I deleted and re downloaded and now I can't get in at all.
Will I ever be able to login!?
Did I lose my trees/coins/hours focused if it wasn't synced before I deleted it?
Please fix and help!!
Great app for productivity 5/5
This app is helpful in keeping you focus and make making a forest a goal for encouragement.
Sound always turns off now when I open the app 4/5
Newest update broke music/audiobook playing. I like to listen to audiobooks or music when I plant a tree. With the newest update, the app turns off whatever music I have playing whenever I open it. Super annoying. I hope they fix it soon!
Love the new trees, though, and the Christmas theme.
I LOVE this app! A couple of requests... 5/5
This app is the best for those who need a little visual stimulation and extra incentive to stay productive. I truly hate exiting the app during a work session (thus killing my little sapling), and I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing my daily forest grow. The app has kept me from getting distracted by calls, texts, and web-browsing on many occasions.
A couple of requests: I would love more kinds of ambient sounds to be added to the "store." Also, please create a version for Mac desktop to keep us chronic procrastinators from using distracting apps and websites there! I know that a basic version of Forest exists as a Chrome extension, but it lacks a lot of my favorite features from the app, and doesn't currently block distracting desktop apps. I'm not such a fan of Chrome, anyway (I prefer Safari). In any case, keep up the fantastic work! Oh! And go check out the SleepTown app by the same developer. It uses the same concept to help people develop better sleep habits, and I can verify that it helps with getting a good night's sleep!
Es muy útil 5/5
Me gusta mucho. Después de estudiar mucho, el árbol crece y yo siempre siento orgulloso de mi misma. Es una buena experiencia permanecer lejos del móvil porque el teléfono me interrumpe muy a menudo, así yo trabajo despacio. Una sugerencia es yo espero que la aplicación puede recordar me a trabajar con frecuencia.
Study tool 5/5
By Laura Chavelita
I have to write a lot and have some writing anxiety. With the app, I can study at 25 minute intervals with 5 minute breaks in between. The app prevents me from wasting time on social media and keep me writing. Plus, being able to plant real trees is awesome!
I wasted my money omg worst app
Great app with a great cause 5/5
I love the productivity points can be spent on planting a tree in developing countries. It is a good motivator to do more work sprints!
One of my favorite apps... 5/5
I mistakenly said this app was missing a feature which it actually does have. I wouldn’t have noticed if it wasn’t for the quick and friendly response by the app developer. That just goes to show that these guys really do care about their users’ experience.
This is a great app. It helps keep me away from the phone. The previous version gave you extra coins if you stayed off your phone longer than your set time. Now it only gives you coins based on your set time. The drawback to this is that you have to repeatedly go back and set a new goal once the time is up if you want to be rewarded. That means being distracted by having to reach your phone. Overall, a useful app, just a little less than before.
This has improved my concentration so much!!!!!
Unique app to solve many problems 5/5
I used to have a massive issue with procrastination and not doing homework, studying, and meditation. This app holds me responsible by planting bushes and trees and prevents me from exiting the app for more than around 10 seconds. It's also really great because I can close my phone with the app still running and I can still receive important calls from others when the app is on- so God forbid anything bad happens, I can still be available. I simply ❤️ how the forest is changed with the Christmas season and I hope that they’ll make the forest also change in the future spring, summer, and fall seasons please 😁
The updates and tree variety keep me hooked 5/5
By Immaculate Misconception
I have a newborn son, and we have a routine. He wakes me up about an hour to two hours before I’d normally be up for work. I plant a two-hour tree with Forest and I play with my boy. It was hard at first, because babies don’t appear terribly interesting at times, and I’ve had such a long-time habit of checking the morning news on my phone. But when I plant a tree in the morning, I am so focused on my boy and no longer tempted to read or check my phone. He has my complete attention.
My wife and I also plant trees right before we sit down to dinner with our kids or watch a movie with them. Forest really helps us to be and stay present with our family.
I’ve tried other apps that had similar concepts of growing plants and trees, and when they stopped updating I got bored. Forest has a wonderful variety and updates that have kept me hooked and interested.
Helping me through grad school 5/5
I have used this app for years. Breaking large tasks into smaller pieces and then tackling them one tree at a time has helped me to complete my master’s thesis, both candidacy exams, and is now instrumental in helping me write my dissertation. In short, I love this app!
This app helps me finish tasks like homework and housework! It also help me sleep! I love it! Also I love how you actually seem to care what people think and comment on their feedback. It’s reassuring to know that if I have a problem with this app it will actually be looked at and thought about
It gud 5/5
I love it 5/5
By Grace Tyler
I have been using this app for 2 months now, and I have to say this is the best app💗
So cute! 5/5
OMG! The trees in Holiday theme are so cute~!
It’s been a great help 5/5
Even if I only used this app for a week, I can clearly see how much it helped me to be more focused & high efficiency and stop wasting time on the smart phone. As a college student I really need this and it actually works. Thank for developers!
The Best App for Students 5/5
This app has helped improve my concentration even when I'm not actually using it- checking my phone less, paying attention more in all situations
Always when i want to study, i will use this app and i will stay focus and on a great routine of studying.i really like this
Just what I was looking for 5/5
I have ADHD, which makes focusing difficult enough, nevermind all the tempting distractions the phone gives. This app provides a gratifying reminder to remove a giant source of distraction and actively engage in the activity you started. Finish what you start, should be this app’s sales pitch. Definitely download.
Simple But Practical 5/5
Does what I need, gives me much needed breaks from scrolling forever.. Good cause too
