I’m sure it’s great but... 3/5
I really love the idea of this app, growing a peaceful garden by fulfilling goals. But I don’t have Facebook. I don’t want it get it since I have no interest in it and the idea of it makes me nervous. Also no one I care about has Facebook so I have no reason to connect with it so they can support my goals. I know your working on it, and I appreciate that. But it is disappointing
Not usable anymore 1/5
You can’t use the app without logging into a Facebook account … which I don’t have and don’t want! How much data are you collecting this way? And what do you do with it? Because the app used to work without Facebook.
I don’t have Facebook so could not use it 1/5

Price Medal Issues!!! 4/5
By Nem Sudou
Great app so far, but every time I try to focus with a price medal for Oak it does not give it to me despite me meeting the focus requirements. It would show up on my feed as having received a price medal for Oak, but not on my map. It only happens for Oak. I’ve emailed support on this but no one has gotten back to me. I really want to finish the map with price medals.
I can’t use this app because I have to login with Facebook ☹️
Only for Facebook! 1/5
Boooo. I love the Forest app and wanted to try this for habit tracking. But I gave up FB three years ago so there’s no other way to use this app.
Great App, just needs some major fine tuning 4/5
This is a great app, there are very affordable plans if you want your focus time to actually contribute to planting real trees in the world.
The only issue is when you want to study with friends who have flora. The only issues I have with this app are:
1) The timer starts as soon as you send a request for your friends to join your study session. This means that time is wasted until they can all actually join rather than all of us starting at the same time.
2) Inviting friends is very old school and clunky. If you request for a friend to join your study session directly through the app, it’s a hit or a miss. Sometimes they’ll get the invitation and sometimes they won’t..so that’s more time wasted (keep in mind the timer has already started)
3) The only reliable way to make sure your friends get the notification to join the study session is to text them a password/key to join the session. Now they have to wait for the text, get the password/key, type it into the app (you can’t copy-and-paste), and you’re friends are finally joined...oh and the timer has already finished a few minutes...why can’t there just be a link that friends can click on and automatically join the study session?
When I Actually Use It, It Works! 5/5
If only there was a setting that forced me to use it every day... This app keeps me focused on whatever I need to work on (usually practicing instruments). I don’t know why it works, but it does.
Great app 4/5
The app helps remind me there’s something else I need to be doing. Many of us have a game mentality, this feeds into that.
I do wish if I pause the app that it would remind me every minute or so to go back. Sometimes I just want to turn on music but get distracted.
For stuff that you need to do trust me
Why only FaceBook login??? 1/5
By Vivi the cat
I downloaded this app excited cause many people have recommended it to me, but I was disappointed when I saw the Facebook only login. I deleted immediately cause I do not want a Facebook account. Very stupid. Waste of my time.
Great app but ill give you 1 star 1/5
By saleh Almhameed
Long story short this app is perfect but why i have to use Facebook to login I don’t have Facebook account so idk how im gonna use it
Requires Facebook login 1/5
You can’t use the app without a Facebook account. Since I don’t have a Facebook account and refuse to get one, this app is useless. I would rate this 0 stars if I could.
Awesome app 5/5
This is a pretty cool app. I love how it tracks my studying. The fact that they plant real trees is awesome because that’s really what will help with global warming, not to mention the animals that depend on trees.
Review and suggestion 4/5
This app has changed my life for the better, because it makes completing tasks fun! I love the thrill of unlocking new plants, and achieving goals. The only thing that I really wish this app allowed me to do is customize the garden. I hate that I can’t control where the plants are placed and that it looks all messy. I understand the idea of mimicking a real garden by keeping the plants for 7 days, but could we please get some customization options regarding the garden layout? This app would be 3X more addicting if that was possible!!
Always helps to stay focused and do not waste any time 5/5
Update: if you want to stay focused with your friends (btw it’s the coolest option) together, you need VPN
But if you want it for yourself or use it alone, then do not having VPN shouldn’t be a problem)
Currently I’m in China and I can use it only offline and it’s fine)
I love it, so simple and so useful!!!
Can’t even use it 1/5
You can only use this app if you also use Facebook. Not sure why I need to use Facebook if I’m trying to track my habits. Haven’t had a Facebook in years and an increasing number of people are leaving it behind. Creating an alternative way to log in isn’t difficult from a developing standpoint so I’m not sure what they have to gain with this.
Downloaded app, saw that it requires Facebook to login. Deleted immediately. Was looking for an app that my coworkers and I can use to do a screen time challenge, but this is not going to be the one.
a bit confused? 5/5
By x PaxyArt x
ive seen this app from a friend and i liked it so i got it. I love love love the message because i stay on my phone alot and i dont know how to take a break, literally! i cant! its just im a little but confused, with the “price” thingy. if i kill my tree, do i have to pay money? like, if i choose to pay $0 and if i kill my tree, does that mean i dont have to pay anything?
Help Me Flora 5/5
By Virgie Ingram
This app is great. I’m studying for my bar exam. As a 30 something professional my biggest struggle has been focusing and ignoring distractions from my phone. Thanks to Flora I am able to account for my study time and I’ve gone from 20 minute increments to 2 hours. I’m so grateful for this app, it’s my secret weapon to passing the bar!
Finals godsend 5/5
Didn’t think it would work but through this app I didn’t use my phone for 3 hours straight today- just studied
Awesome App! 5/5
I absolutely love this app. It has definitely helped increase my productivity when trying to get my schoolwork done! I love being on my phone, but the Flora app forces me to get off of social media and get to work! I love that it allows you to grow a variety of plants, flowers, and trees unlike other productivity apps and I also enjoy being able to plant/study with friends. I only wish I could move my plans around after they’ve grown so that I can truly customize my garden to look the way that I want it to look!
A problem 3/5
I used it before and didn’t have a issue when I redowloaded it on here I would be able to start my timer but if my phone turned off I would have to restart the one cuz my tree died even if I didn’t use my phone. Also I find it stupid because I don’t wanna kill my phone battery for a fake tree I want to be able to keep the app open and phone off so I can study and not worry that the phone will turn off and kill my tree
I don’t understand 3/5
By jade Laskody
I like that you can plant trees but I don’t understand how to accept the tree to plant
Thank you 5/5
By fix the please and thanks
Thank you for caring about our environment and our world and taking the time out of your own life to create this app and having an organization that plants trees to make up for the many that are being torn down. It is a good thing to take action when many others are not, because it enables others to want to help too.
Didn’t join 1/5
This app requires you to use Facebook to log in, which I only use for work purposes, so that’s annoying. Then once I tried to log in, I found that it won’t let you proceed if you don’t allow the app access to your friends list and birthday. As I said I only use Facebook for work, and I don’t want to be access by customers on an app, and I especially don’t understand why on earth an app that pretends to grow a tree would need my birthday. Facebook is already unreliable with personal data. I don’t want an app that seems determined to get more info about me than it needs.
Just one problem 4/5
I love flora! It helps me a lot concentrating and managing my tasks. But it has one problem and that is it does not have a weekly report. I mean you can’t understand how much you studied last week. It has bar charts I know but it’s not simple to track all of them. I hope that at the beginning of the week, I mean mondays, the total hours of that week become zero and at the end of the week we get a report that tells us how many hours we studied as well as monthly reports or total focus time which can be for example 200 hours or more.
Thank u so much Flora ❤️
Taiwan is not a country but a part of China 1/5
The app is good except that in the map it shows Taiwan as an independent country. I am very disappointed about that. Taiwan is not recognized as a country by the United Nations. You need to change the map.
Great concept but requiring FB login no. 2/5
The concept is great. I enjoy the app but requiring Facebook authentication made me uninstall it.
Requires a login with Facebook—really? 2/5
By Someone give me a nickname
I wish I could say more about the app. Would have been interested in trying it but I don’t use Facebook. Maybe make this accessible to people through some other means? Email isn’t enough?
I really wanted to use this app to focus but you need to have a Facebook account in order to use the app, I’m so disappointed.
Wish it was free but its for a good cause 4/5
I need something to help me stay off my phone and this is perfect. I’ll definitely be purchasing it when I can afford it
By Mostly good game
It’s a good app. I just wish I didn’t have to create a Facebook account to use it. :/
new update 4/5
I wish in new version we could sign up via email or phone number
By Jacesfyjndtcyg ihyfesrsft
So people without Facebook can’t use this app?
Best studying app for people who can’t concentrate 5/5
This is amazing
Until you get email login, no way I’m using it through FB 1/5
This is the first app I’ve ever seen that only lets you login with FaceBook. Wow. What an oversight. It looks like a neat app. But until you let us login using email, no dice.
Completely useless 1/5
Facebook only sign in. Then won’t let me go anywhere. Just takes me to a green screen that tells me how sorry they are that it doesn’t work. Then back to the sign in page that says I’m already signed in
It’s amazing 5/5
This app is amazing it keeps me focused and every time I get out of it I quickly tap back to it. I’m so glad this app exist thank you very much
Really good game! Just a few fixes 4/5
I really love how this game rewards you for focusing for certain periods of time, but it also sometimes kills the tree after it has fully grown. And I wish there were more ways to sign in because I had to create my own Facebook account just for this app
Not happy 1/5
I was excited to get the app, and I even made an Facebook account for it but it would always log me out and I would have to sign in again but it wouldn’t let me. I have made 3 account thinking it would work but no, please make it so you can sign in using an email or other accounts. No one uses Facebook and it’s overwhelming
Really awesome! 5/5
I’m in 8th grade and with this app it has been really helping me focus to study for my algebra EOC! Really recommend this app:)
do you pay for the real tree plan once or once a month. I can’t find any customer service number!
Sign in issue 5/5
It would be better if we could sign in via Email or phone number or etc.
but I like flora 🤗 It helped me a lot.
Only for FB users 1/5
I have never liked an app this much! 5/5
I absolutely love this app! So caring! They help you focus on work/study and even motivate you by planting trees for the environment. It is not that expensive either. I read a stat that we need to plant 40 billion trees to cover co2 emissions only.
Love this app 5/5
Being able to actually see the “fruits” of my labor is extremely rewarding and helpful, especially when it comes to focusing on something as difficult as studying for big exams (MCAT studying for me). The only issue I seem to be having is that the sound isn’t working to let me know that my timer is up, so I’m having to rely on watching the timer myself to make sure I don’t go over. Besides that, absolutely love this app.
Phone had all these issues after I downloaded app 1/5
I noticed my phone was working all wonky after I downloaded this app. I have a new iPhone 8 not even a month old but my camera would turn off after I snapped a photo. My google naps was giving me double the time to drive somewhere where’s my bf was showing half the time. Just all these weird glitchy things and this was the only new app I downloaded.
