Requires facebook to activate. Requires birthday, friend list and email. I tried to limit info accessible to the app but they responded by not letting me use it. Invasive scam if I ever saw one.
Facebook Login Only 1/5
Yeah, this makes the app difficult to use because I do not have nor want a Facebook account. Why not just set up an email login with a password? Those are pretty common.
Don’t do Facebook so can’t use 1/5
Sounded like a neat idea. But can’t find out
Facebook log in is dumb 1/5
I think it is absolutely ridiculous that a Facebook page is required to use this application. Everyone knows the success of a business relies on the opinions of customers, and many would agree that a simple email signup should be enough. This app would likely be much more popular if that wasn’t the case.
you need facebook to login! 2/5
By MAKE THEM FREE :(
i was really excited to try this app until i came upon the opening screen that only allows you to login with facebook. i don’t have facebook!
Need more trees 4/5
By 173 b3.($57&
Good interface, could use something other than facebook (ew) but definitely need more trees
only facebook login 1/5
you can only use facebook to log in which is not useful for teens wanting to focus on homework.
Good app, with a couple concerns 4/5
By Rainbow 🌈 unicorn 🦄
I got this app hoping it would provide some motivation during this crazy quarantine, and overall it works great! The only thing that I feel like isn’t working form me is the garden- I have so many plants that it’s not really rewarding to add one more to the scene. Adding a daily garden would fix this though! I totally get the joy of maintaining a garden over time, but it’s also really nice to be able to fully see your plants and start over every day (speaking from Forest experience- Flora has better art though:) The other thing I’m worried about is running out of stops. I got the rainforest but it would be amazing if there were more packs. Would love to see these things added in a future update!
Fun idea 3/5
I like the idea of this app and think it’s a great way to plant trees and focus. It would be cool if there was a way to interact or be updated to a status of a real tree that’s been planted. Perhaps every milestone achieved receiving a photo update? It would encourage long term use. Maybe user retention? Also as an individual that uses their phone for work if there was a way to make a call without being told I killed my tree, since work and productivity may still require using ones phone it would be a cool feature to have.

It’s 2020 and it’s still not updated. Wowowow
Forces you to login with Facebook 1/5
You cannot use the app without giving up your Facebook login and its data. No, thank you. I immediately uninstalled the app.
Big issues but great app 5/5
Lately my app will immediately shut down upon opening. I have paid for an account and would like to continue to use my focus hours to donate trees. It is very helpful for keeping focused! Easy to use app.
Great app 5/5
By Joshua Yang Justin
A little bare bones(Like I wish they changed the background of it) but it gets the job done with no ads. What’s not to like?
Bye flora 4/5
I really love this app in the beginning. However I found app is not so attractive after I unlock all the stops. I can’t build my garden using those flowers or trees I unlocked and I don’t feel excited anymore. Bye flora.
not worth my time 1/5
By Maddie the puppy
i thought i would like this, but it wont let me past the login stage. it literally wont let me write my email because it says it isnt valid.
only login with facebook 1/5
By Susan BT
i did not even get the chance to use this app because it only allows you to login with facebook. i find that very aggravating because this is supposed to help you stay off of social media and your phone but they want you to use social media to sign in. very unhelpful.
Needs improvements 4/5
By Stylinson Girl 💙💚
The app is great. Helps to put down the phone, focus, increase your study time. The most fascinating thing about it is that you can study together. HOWEVER, having to sign up ONLY via Facebook is a bit of problem. The first thing is the fact not many people use Facebook much these days. I myself (and most of my friends) had to make a FB account girst to use Flora. Plus, Facebook itself has many flaws to be honest. In FB you can’t add anyone as friends but the ones the app suggests. I have many friends I’d love to have focus sessions with but can’t add them in Facebook since they’re not suggested..! So, I have to share the code with them every single time and wait for them to join me in the room. Takes time and makes it hard to use. It would be better if we could have Flora accounts and profiles. Plus; people can see your garden which makes it cute and cool.
I would appreciate your support.
Facebook problem. 1/5
By Krystal Willow
I can’t even get in the app when it forces me to login with Facebook. If this had some other ways to login I’m sure the app would be good and all but this is an issue.
Facebook ONLY 1/5
I honestly was very excited to use this app to stay focused. But it ONLY USES FACEBOOK! With this day and age, many other newer forms of social media has emerged, shouldn’t you keep up with the trends?
I hate this app 1/5
I am a student and I don’t have Facebook and it’s the only way you can log in that’s so stupid I thought this app was so students and kids could stay focused I am extremely disappointed I would give zero stars if I could
Why Facebook? 1/5
Please make a way to log in without Facebook
don’t get unless you have facebook. it’s the ONLY way to sign in and that’s so stupid
love this app! 5/5
this app is amazing and has definitely increased my productivity. the world tour feature is great and definitely helps with motivation. please add more tours!
I don't want to have an account on Facebook
🌿Surprisingly Effective🌿 5/5
I downloaded this app just to try it. I honestly didn’t really know what the app did, but wow. I’m blown away by how simple this app is, yet it does its job wonderfully. I’ve been focused 24+ hours which doesn’t seem like a lot, but I’ve done a lot in that short time. All I really have to do is plant a seed, throw my phone aside, and get to work. It works like magic. The app doesn’t beg for your money, but if you do choose to pay it goes towards a good cause. Thanks for increasing my productivity, Flora. I’ve noticed the developers haven’t updated the app in a while, but thanks anyway! 🌱✨
Best App ever 1/5
This app is hands down a game changer. It is your instant gratification for staying on task!! You are literally saving the world while meeting your goals and staying present.
Edit- I changed my review simply because I dedicated time and money to this app and it helped me tons, and just as I do the most logical thing for someone taking back their time... delete Facebook. BOOM! I can no longer use the app. Thanks a lot, for such a great app you’d think after so many complaints you’d allow for email login!
not even usable 1/5
i don’t have facebook. why should i need facebook for something that is an app for mental health.
Can’t use it without FB 1/5
I hopefully downloaded it.. however I’m not able to use it as I don’t have a Facebook account. It is the only method to login and they won’t let you use the app without it. Makes no sense- why would I need a Facebook account to use my phone less?
Great Time Management Helper! 5/5
I haven’t used this app for long, but thus far it is excellent. Flora makes it easier to manage my habits and have periods of focus. I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking to be more productive, have trouble with getting distracted by your phone, want to focus on studying or working without feeling a compulsive urge to check your phone, etc. Best of luck!
I did not like that they only let you sign in with Facebook. It was VERY frustrating.
It won’t let me sign in!! 3/5
Every time I try to sign in it says error. I’m confused why you can’t just make an account.
Helps me keep focus while completing my studies! Thank you. 5/5
Love it! Although I wish I could buy a real tree but my mom doubt let me :(
I feel focused all of the time!
Can only join with Facebook 4/5
I really don’t like how you can only join with Facebook can someone please tell me when this will be fixed?
Help's Focus for Online Learning. 5/5
Helps with my focus2
Facebook was the wrong choice 1/5
I’ve been trying to create a Facebook profile so I can use this app for 5 days, and each time it says my account has been disabled. At first I thought, this a little annoying, but as time went on, I started to get tired of trying to get this to work. I’m uninstalling until there’s an option for email or even Instagram, which most people use.
I don’t know 2/5
So I wanted to download Flora, so I didn’t have to pay for Forest. But the problem is, is that you have to use a FaceBook account. I don’t have a FaceBook account, so I can’t use it. I also don’t want to create a FaceBook account because I don’t wanna see all the social media.
I can’t even use it because I don’t have Facebook! 1/5
By customer 48852374
It’s been like a year and since I don’t have Facebook I wanted to wait for the update that would let me sign in with something else. That update still has not come yet and I’m really disappointed. PLEASE FIX THIS BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS BACK!!!!!!!
Why Facebook?! 1/5
I don't use Facebook....so i delete the app
One problem 3/5
So I can’t log in to this app because of the facebook log in. I know this app is great so that’s why I started to download it.
But the only way to log in or sign in is Facebook. I dint have Facebook and what about the other people who don’t have that too. I really want to use it this but I can’t use it with another log in like google or just an email. I really wish you can change this soon so other people can join and use this great app.
Requires Facebook login 1/5
You can’t use the app without logging in with the privacy stealing Facebook login. Pass
Sticking to the Forest App 1/5
The point of this app is so people can be more productive and use their phones less but then you force people to sign up to a social media platform?
I love this app! 5/5
I have adhd and don’t take medication, so I have awful focus. This app keeps me focused so well and I can complete assignments 100 times faster, people with online school, GET THISSSSS.
Lovin’ it so far! 5/5
Just started using this app and I like it so far! Great way of making sure I stay off other apps and don’t get distracted while I am working.
Can get in 1/5
I bought this app because when I am working on stuff I easily get distracted but I can’t even make an account because I don’t have Facebook
login with Facebook -.- 1/5
i haven’t even began to use it because you have to log in with Facebook! i don’t have Facebook so i can’t use it. Can y’all please fix this?
Love this app! 5/5
Very useful! Helps me to stay focused!
Please add flowers/trees name next to the image 4/5
I like this app, having been using it for quite a few days, it raises my curiosity when I unlock the next “seed” what kind of tree or flower it would turn out to be. So I stopped using my phone, so much checking on useless stuff as I want to grow another flower/tree just right after I have finished growing one. I would like to make a suggestion: it would be great to add the name of the tree/flower next to the image. Scrolling back through my feed, it would be nice to not just see what I have grown other times, but also knowing their names and remembering their names. Please consider this ! :) thank you, great app!
Awesome app! 5/5
Overall it is a simple app, it helps a lot to concentrate, and I really like that they plant trees all around the world. My only problem would be that once the time is up is hard to go back to plant some more, I have to close the app and open it again, but thats a minor inconvenience, I still would rate it a 5
