FLORA IS AWESOME!!! 5/5
I love flora. In school I have a lot of tests and I need to study a lot. This helps me a lot. I put a timer. I’ve used my phone once during it and my tree almost died! It was scary but I stopped using it and it grew again. Flora has a tree and if you use your phone when the timer you put is running then your tree will die.
When I saw that Facebook login was required to use the app, I immediately uninstalled.
I like it 4/5
I'm studying for back to school so it really helps
Love The App! 5/5
If i'm going to be honest, i heard about the app "forest" but it was $1.99!!! and it practically did the same thing i needed it to do as this one, so i downloaded this one to try it out because sometimes the free one has purchases in the app, but it didn't it's amazing for finishing my book! totally recommend it over the over charged "forest" app!!!
Need more login options 2/5
Looks like a great app, so sad I can’t try it because I don’t have Facebook. I wish you could log in with emails, instagram, Twitter, etc. And not just facebook.
cant use without facebook 1/5
Cant use this app without a facebook account.
Wants Facebook login: deleted 1/5
Why does any developer still insist that people use Facebook as an authentication system?
The last thing anyone needs is to be giving more of their data to Facebook, so they can sell it to one and all, including Russian SPAM networks.
Highly recommend 5/5
I don’t see how this app can get any better! I’m in high school and trying to not glance at Instagram is really hard but this app helps. It’s really cool too that it plants real trees. I highly recommend!

It works!! 5/5
Love it! Very helpful so far for an adhd person it helps break it up and make tasks feel more manageable. Haven’t used it with friends yet but seems like a great way for people addicted to their phones to try to be more present.
Very well done 5/5
By Tyler Junior College
Only complaint is you can’t do 1, 2, 3, 4 etc hours with no minutes. I would always have to do 1 hour 5 minutes, for example, when I only need an hour. Other than that, really useful.
Don’t even know 2/5
I don’t even know if the app is good cause I can only sign in with Facebook. What 10 year old has face book
Requires FB log in to use 3/5
Looks good but I haven’t tried it because of FB login requirement
It helps you with everything! ( almost everything.)
1 Star for now... 1/5
Because I can’t use it. There are a good number of people who left or deleted Facebook completely following current events. Please note in the description that Facebook is the only method of signing up, especially since you have a paid version of the app available for immediate download. For now, I can’t use it.
It's an inspiring app.
Best app 5/5
By Maddie leaf-ish
Why can’t I even login at the beginning I click send the email address and it does nothing beachside I’m ten and I don’t have a Facebook account
Best pomodoro app - also free and no ads 5/5
1) The design is beautiful and also easy to use and navigate.
2) It helps me focus and stay off my phone. I prefer the “tree growing” over the traditional timer which constantly makes me think about how much time is left. Besides from getting my tasks done, I also get a sense of accomplishment every time I see I’ve planted another tree.
3) You can create tags for specific activities. For example, one for work/studying, another for exercise and one for down time. And for each tag you can set a goal and check how much time you’ve spent on it.
4) You can improve your habits and focus with your friends or family. Say at dinner everyone is always on their phones, this app can help everyone be more in the present and really enjoy their time with each other.
Really great app! Keep up the good work!
Required Facebook Login 1/5
I don’t have a Facebook account.
Requires Facebook??? 1/5
By App guinea pig
I’m looking for something to help me get away from the internet and yet this app requires a Facebook account to use it? How ridiculous. Figure out another way, it can’t be that hard.
Keeps killing my tree 3/5
It’s not a bad app but sometimes it just stops timing and kills the tree. I don’t even touch my phone and it just stops.
Closing the app 2/5
By Cats could be cool
I hate that when the phone turns off the tree dies! Why does it do that?
I Can’t Even Play the Game!! 1/5
I got this game to become more productive and do things over the summer. I’m taking a couple of classes on science and math so I thought this would help. I was very excited. Until the game finally loads and I go to it, then I was very disappointed to see that I had to have Facebook to play the game, there was no other option. I don’t have Facebook. I’m not big on social media. The reason they say they did that isn’t helpful at all. Most reasons involve friends and connecting. I got this app for me. I didn’t want it to study or be productive with other people I wanted it for me. I am very sad to say I won’t be keeping this app.
Unable to log in with Facebook 5/5
I wish I could use this app, but it requires a log in through Facebook but doesn’t accept my log in information. I’ve tried logging in multiple times and I always get an error message saying Facebook cannot paid with Flora at this time.
Requires to log in with Facebook. 1/5
I don't want to use facebook to login to anything, let alone a timer app/game. Why do i even need a login for a timer app?
Fail. Requires Facebook 1/5
Screw Facebook. If that’s the only login available then you are just as scummy as FB, wanting to mine data to make money from personal data. I left FB and anybody who has. Anybody who builds their model around it can forget getting me or anybody who’ll listen to me on board. You want to make money? Just charge a fair price and make CLEAR that the price of entry is your personal data.
Really keeps me focus but keeps killing my tree 3/5
I stay focus but if I unlock my phone sometimes it just says my tree died even when I don’t navigate away from the app or even attempt to.
Not great 2/5
I like this app in theory but probably half the time I try to use it, it says I killed my plant even though I didn’t open my phone. This kind of defeats the purpose, so I don’t use it very often.
Positive Challenge 5/5
It’s fits its purpose. Help earth and yourself.
Really wanted to try this but I’m not on Facebook and that’s the only option. Apps should always have multiple options for signing up. Bummer.
The user experience is so bad 1/5
It’s very inconvenient when you want to invite a friend to join you. Could you just create a link and who ever click the link can join? Or is there a way to copy/paste the code directly? The tree is very easy killed, and sometimes it just died when turn off the screen. Shall I always leave the screen on? That’s too energy-cost!
I liked the idea but I didn’t like how I had to make a fake Facebook account to get an app to study with. Can it not just be like hey we’ll email you and stuff like that. I had to make a fake account labeled as danaishka. what even!?
Facebook requirement is a Nono 1/5
I refuse to use any app that REQUIRES a Facebook connection. App deleted.
Requires FB login 1/5
By Colonel fruits
Requires a Facebook login. For a productivity app. You have GOT to be kidding me. It’s like they’ve never heard of irony.
Now I’ll sit back and wait for the stock developer response of, “Hi, Flora helps you and friends stay focused by growing a tree together...”
Glitch shut me down 2/5
I was enjoying Flora, but I just got a notification that my plant had grown up successfully on my locked home screen. When I pushed my home button, and the Flora app opened up, it showed that I had “killed” my plant. In order to continue using, despite actually completing my time successfully, I got a notification that I would need to pay my money commitment or share with friends. If a glitch is going to exist that is going to cost money when I have not “defaulted,” this is not an app I care to continue using.
I can’t even use the app because it requires you log into Facebook. New flash, not everyone has a Facebook and I’m not going to make one for this app. How hard is it to have us log in using our email, every other app can do that. If you are like me and just want to use this app to focus on homework then just get Forest.
Facebook required 1/5
Having ADHD I was excited to find this app but it requires you to sign in with your Facebook....WHAT? No thank you
Amazing tool to promote focused work session 5/5
Amazing tool to kick start a hyper focused work session! Love it.
No Facebook 1/5
App looks really good and I want to try it out! Problem is, I don’t have a Facebook as I have no reason to create an account. Due to recent events involving the platform I don’t even want to create a throw away account. If you guys made it so that the app had it’s own account creation or something similar, I’d change my rating in a heartbeat. Again, looks cute, but I lack a Facebook.
Fun and satisfying!! 5/5
For a goal-oriented person like me, it’s a lot of fun to have this aid to get off my phone — AND get rewarded with a pretty virtual garden at the same time!
Functional, Clean, and Cute 4/5
It’s a great app. The plants give more depth to your focus sessions. I wish they’d allow for organization of work sessions into different folders or “gardens,” and I wish you could set an intention for a seed BEFORE you plant it, and not after.
Helps keep me focused. I like the little reward of a new tree as I stay focused. It’s simple, it might be silly... but that’s exactly what I needed to get my stuff done when I’ve got so many distractions. I like it.
Cute and Usefull 5/5
This app is so cute I adore growing little flowers, trees, and blueberries! Also, the guilt of killing a little plant really motivates me to not touch my phone, lol.
Requires Facebook 1/5
By Can I review the appstore app?
Can't use unless you also give it your Facebook account
Facebook only, wants too much info 1/5
I downloaded this app in the hopes that it would help my family with getting things done. I ended up deleting it minutes after opening it. Why? There were two major red flags for me. 1. Facebook is a requirement. You can’t use the app unless you connect it to your Facebook account. 2. They want unnecessary information. They require that Facebook shares a birthdate and friends lists. If you deselect those options, you get an error message saying you can’t use the app. There is absolutely no reason why this app should need a birthdate or a list of all of my friends. The whole thing felt very fishy, so I deleted it.
Requires group play but doesn’t help you find this group 3/5
Its alright. I like that it helps to keep me focused and that it is visually beautiful appealing. Making it a game makes it easier for me to stay focus. However, it’s annoying that you have to do some study tasks in a room with other people, but the app offers no way of finding other people who use this app, or at least making rooms that we could join with other people to make it past some check points in the grand tour. I think if they added something that would allow us to have more interactions with other users this would be incredibly helpful. I would be interested in working in a study session with other people across the globe, who may not necessarily be studying the same thing as me
REQUIRES FACEBOOK 1/5
By Sincerely, Zhen
The fact that you need Facebook to use this app is why I gave this app 1 star.
I would love to try this app because it seems really promising but I don’t have a Facebook account so I’ll have to pass and check other options
I don’t like it, because I haven’t facebook account
