Forced to Login with Facebook? 1/5
Facebook sign-in ONLY 1/5
This could be a great app except the developers can’t seem to find a way to allow access to anyone who doesn’t want to sign in with their Facebook accounts. This is insane, and a major turn off for a younger generation not addicted to Facebook. It is September 2019 and developers STILL have not released a version with the option of logging in or simply using the app by ANY other means.
Flora: go to any community college or university near you and recruit an IT intern or two to hammer out this issue. If we can send a man to the moon, surely there must be some way to follow through on your promises to open the app up to users without Facebook.
Locked out 1/5
By Richie L. E.
Suddenly locked out of my account and can’t get in touch with the developers to fix the issue. Frustrating because I spent money on the app. Hoping this gets their attention and something can be fixed.
Good but buggy 3/5
I keep getting logged out of FB and my goals and trees got reset; this happened twice already ☹️ otherwise a promising app if it were running properly
Can’t login with the latest update 1/5
Both Floral and FB have been updated. But still can’t login. Please fix!
It was good but after a while i cannot sign in to my account, it says:
Something went wrong...!
I love this app but would really like it on android as well. I have a lot of friends who use android phones, so it’s difficult since they all use forest...
Best focus app!!!! 5/5
This app has helped me focus a lot better with my homework when I usually don’t focus
This app is stupid 1/5
By Molly M43
I wanted to use it to study, so I go and download it. Then, it makes me sign in to Facebook. I am to young to have Facebook. I don’t understand why they would not put google, because the people using it is younger people to study for school, instead of being on their phone!!
Social media restriction 1/5
I tried to use flora but that required a Facebook account. I don’t have one so therefore... I can’t use this app. It seems like a really good app but because I can’t actually use it due to restrictions, I have to give it one star
I can only login with Facebook 3/5
Honestly, I don’t even know if this app is good or not. The reason I’m reviewing this app without even testing the app is because I couldn’t even get in. You are required to login with Facebook, making this very difficult for people to login who don’t have Facebook. One thing that pops up is a “Why Facebook?” and it basically says that they’re working on making it more available for non Facebook users. I’m sure it is a good app, it’s just this one feature makes it a little disappointing.
Not for folks who have ditched Facebook 1/5
Can’t use the app if you don’t have Facebook. Cmon developers, do you really need all our social media personal information?
The tree idea is so good and helpful but everything freaking time i want to use the app i have to log into Facebook and i have to be online all the time ! I don’t know why this app is soooo obsessed with Facebook?! How much do they pay you? 😒
It’s so annoying please please make it easier to use cause I love it ❤️except for the Facebook thing😒😒
When you build a productivity app that forces you to use Facebook, you know you’ve failed.
I appreciate the disclaimer on why Facebook is the only supported log in method, but this reduces your user base. I downloaded this app to get away from social media and focus on my life, so please don’t make me give you my Facebook creds. Why can’t you support social app use via email? If two people have an account associated with their email address, they should be able to plant trees in the app together. Perhaps you’ve already spec’d out the user scenarios and decided that email login is either not possible or not worth it, but as a user, I don’t feel this design was thoughtful.
I signed up to receive a notification when your app supports other log in methods, but I think I’ll just give up and stick with the Forest app instead.
I love how it threatens to kill my tree 4/5
By Savie Style
That threatening feeling it gives when it will kill my tree if I go on my phone motivates me to focus on my work. But I really wish I didn’t have to pay to plant a real tree, but hey, y’all need money too so ʅ（◞‿◟）ʃ
Didn’t get to use it at all😡 1/5
Can you do it without logging in? Or log in with something else because I’m not allowed to have the app I need to log in
Great app 5/5
This is a great app bescause it makes u focus and if u don’t do your work u click the give up button which means no more real trees and it is a great focus timer app really good for young and old people,and really good for the not paitent
Ones 5 star rating and I’m using it for school and I’m really liking it
Great charity! 5/5
Great cause. Really enjoying the app so far!!
Requires Facebook account to use 1/5
Unusable for me as it requires to link a Facebook account and I do not have one and do not intend to create one just for this app. I will be downloading a different app.
Frees up the mind but one thing 4/5
By Sonny Reviews
Love this app. Cute design but simple that you want to stick with it. The only thing that would make me more likely to stick to a session is if they planted trees when I succeeded instead of when I failed. I’d never use my phone if it means I’m helping the planet too. The money stakes should be spent on successful users to plant trees and not for failure.
Fix the crashes and bug issues! 3/5
I am a medical student, and I use this app every day when I’m studying. However, there are so many bugs and issues it makes it hard to get into a routine😩 please fix all the app crashes, and the issues with people not receiving invitations to join the room. Other than that, its perfect!
Need Facebook to use app 1/5
Real bummer for people without Facebook.
Wrong title 1/5
By Likes all games
Not a habit tracker
great overall!! 5/5
i really don’t have anything negative to say about this app. it helps you focus while also helping the earth out a little bit. both great things!!
Maximum Cap on Plants, Log-in Issues, Data Loss if App Deleted 1/5
By Flora Needs Fixing
Lack of communication/response via in-app feedback.
After about 30 plants, the app starts deleting the oldest plants... why not allow users to collect more plants so that they can cultivate a garden? Or, why not allow users to pick and choose what to delete?
Also, the only method of logging into other accounts is by re-installing the app for each account login. Fix this please... also why is our “tour progress” deleted whenever we re-install? Why is the tour progress only stored in local app data, but the plants we collected is saved by you guys? I had to restart from North America after re-installing...
It wont let me use the app? 2/5
I downloaded the app and was able to use it once for about 25 minutes. When I went back to use it a couple hours later, the app had logged me out of my facebook and won’t let me log in to continue use. I’ve attempted redownloading the app and it still doesn't work. Disappointed :(
Such a useful study tool 4/5
I love flora. But I hate when it tells me I killed a tree when I didn’t touch my phone, especially after a long study session. It also often stops working and will not let me use the app, which can be quite frustrating when I want to track my study time. I’ve become a pretty avid flora user.
Other than these two quirks, it is an excellent app, but these faults prevent me from giving a 5 star rating. I hope developers can fix the issues mentioned above sometime soon.
Couldn’t use it. 1/5
It requieres a Facebook to use the app. I deleted Facebook to focus on studying and it doesn’t let me make an account. When I typed my email address for an update on other login info it said my email address @outlook.es was not a real email. Bummer.
Was good in the beginning but then failed 2/5
I was using this app successfully for the first month or so. Then, one day, it logged me out for no reason, and I couldn’t log back in. I tried reinstalling, but no luck.
Thank you for this app! 5/5
I am now more focused than ever on my homework.
Excellent app! 5/5
GREAT WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF YOUR SCHOOL WORK AND BEING GOOD TO THE ENVIRONMENT!
Doesn’t let me sign up! 1/5
Everytime I tried to sign up, it keeps saying that there was a problem!
Zero Star 1/5
By Could not think of a cool nickname
You have to use Facebook to login. Really?
Stay away from this app like a plague.
Only Facebook to log in? 1/5
By 2 bad, so sad
Quite silly that the only way I can use this app is to login via Facebook. If you’re not capable of allowing me to login with an email, than how good of an app can this really be?
Didn’t even get past the loading screen- not interested in supporting more apps attempting to take all their information from Facebook accounts.
Love !! 5/5
I love flora, it gives you the chance to improve your education and form good habits while also helping to improve our earth!! ( which needs our full attention right now )
Tablet compatibility 4/5
Please make compatible w tablets
I have never used a study app before but i really enjoy using Flora!
I can’t log in with Facebook 3/5
I had an app like this last year but forgot what it was so I got this one for the new school year. My problem was I had to log in with Facebook and I don’t have that and none of my family has it either. So I have to give it a 3 but I know it would work well if you can log in with Facebook so if you have it I recommend!
Awesome app, some desired features 4/5
By bearcub s
Its a great app to use to concentrate and organize study time. There’s one feature that I would love this app to add. In an app called Todait, there is a feature where the countdown timer begins by placing the phone face down, and stopping when the phone is picked up. Both of these actions prompt a vibration as well, and really helps me concentrate. If this app had something like that it would be amazing!
So you just want to sell Facebook info? 1/5
No thank you! This app is completely non-functional unless you share your Facebook information and offers no other way to log in, despite the claim that they are working on it (and have supposedly needed months to do so). In reality, they just want your information to sell.
Has a few problems 3/5
By Super Astronaut 312
It does it’s job but has many problems. The art style is nice and the design is clean. It’s buggy but also has other problems. First it’s not made for IPad at all despite being marked that it is. It also doesn’t sync across devices logged in to the same account. Meaning your gardens are separate and in order to have all you devices lock you need to type in the codes. Finally the monetization options are aggressively pushed and you NEED Facebook.
I couldn’t even use the app! 1/5
By Danielle Wick
I tried logging into the app using my Facebook (when I first downloaded the app). But the “oops, something’s wrong” notice kept popping up. I deleted the app and re-downloaded. I tried to get into the app again. When I tried to get into the app using my Facebook login, it was stuck on the loading screen.
Great way to keep me focused. I’m actively avoiding my phone to keep my trees alive.
I love this app but it won’t open can someone help!? I restarted my iPhone and even deleted and reinstalled the app. It won’t load after I clicked to sign in through Facebook. Thanks
I hate this app 1/5
By Dancing Mira
You can only use Facebook to log on and for people like me who don’t have Facebook this is very inconvenient.
FB Login not working 4/5
By nicoleeee 7
Love this app! I’ve been using it for about a year now, however Facebook login isn’t working after the update as of 9/30/19 :( hopefully it’s a minor bug issue that’ll be fixed
FIRST EVER REVIEW BECAUSE THIS APP IS WORTH IT 5/5
Very well put together, I love thee idea of stepping away from technology and being able to do so with friends. I also highly admire the contributions and major theme of planting trees and the option to plant a REAL Tree!!! Amazing.
Facebook login not working 5/5
I love this app, and I used it all the time. Now the Facebook login is not working after I updated to the latest version. Please fix this soon.
As a programmer I know how frustrating bugs in major projects are, so take your time and don’t stress about it too much.
Have a great day!
Update: I waited about 12 hours or so and now the Facebook login is working. I’ve changed my review to 5 stars.
