Need Facebook 3/5
So the app is rated 4+. I am 15 so I don’t have a Facebook account and many middle schoolers use this to study and need to create a Facebook account some they don’t have one. It would be much easier and will probably get you more downloads if you made choices like log in with Instagram, Twitter, Google, Email, and other things.
Must sign in with Facebook 2/5
No thanks. Not willing to link this app with Facebook. There is NO reason an app like this needs to link with my friends on Facebook. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like I can even get in to see the app without connecting to Facebook. Deleted.
Only Facebook Log Ins… 1/5
Have you guys heard of Cambridge Analytica?
If I can’t log in with email only, I’m not using the app at all.
No more meds! 5/5
I have ADHD but I don't need meds to power study anymore! This is amazing! It's a cute way to encourage you to concentrate, and it works! So worth it. I struggled with my classes, and now I'm topping my class because I can study better!
One suggestion I have is incorporating break times as well. Like the pomodoro technique. And not to constantly have your trees dying after 1 week. Maybe only kill them if we haven't "maintained" our garden well?
Requires Facebook?!? 1/5
By DJ Verde
This app only works if you have Facebook. If nothing else, it makes the 4+ age rating in the App Store dishonest and deceitful.
It actually makes me want to do my work in time. However if you finish early there really is no way to stop it without killing your tree or taking a break.
Good yet Frustrating 2/5
I do like the incentive to put down the phone & focus, BUT there are two main problems. First, it is dificult to navigate the "grand tour" because it MANDATES that you get a friend to play, and some of us don't like to prosyletize our apps (or "play" with friends in this way). Since I didn't invite a friend to play with me, it just stpped progressing, which was quite depressing. Second, sometimes the app stopped counting down when my iPhone went to black screen. So I'd be focusing for 50 minutes, and over an hour later I'd check my phone (why don't I have a tree yet?) and the countdown clock would be at 48:33. I found that I had to keep the screen live the whole time sometimes just to get it to actually countdown - which was beyond annoying and really undermined the entire purpose of the focus app which is, after all, to focus AWAY from the phone. That glitch seemed to be fixed when I restarted everything, but still, quite annoying.
I DONT HAVE FACEBOOK
By liz perston
Glitch where if I set a timer for over 30 minutes and return, say 25 minutes later, it will say only two or three minutes passed.
Facebook required? 1/5
Don’t have Facebook. Can’t use the app.
As a PROFESSOR I do not condone stolen apps 1/5
By pk •••
Blatantly stolen from a superior and original app 🌲
Have to sign in with Facebook account... 1/5
By Apple no more
It wants my Facebook info and friend list... NO!!
Creative app 4/5
By Mesho 74
It’s good but if you break you focus you have to pay
Haven’t even used it 1/5
I don’t have Facebook so there is no way I can use this app which is quite disappointing
This is really a great app 5/5
I completely underestimated how much it would help me focus
Needs login rather than Facebook 3/5
I have heard SO SO SO many good things about this app. So, I decided to download it. Once it finished downloading I opened the app, and it told me that I could only sign in woth Facebook. Now what I don't understand is that most kids who would be using a studying app would not have Facebook. So, I gave my email to them and they said they would send me an email when they make it so you can sign in with stuff rather than Facebook. For now, I am completely bummed and I really wanted to use this app for a test that I have coming up soon. But guess what, I CANT!!🙄
Doesn’t work anymore... 2/5
Was great before but now frequently the timer won’t tick down once my phone locks. I’ll still get the notification that my tree grows but it won’t count down most times if I let my phone lock. Happens to all my friends too.
I don’t get it 1/5
Why make Facebook a requirement? What happens if I don’t have a network on there? Must Facebook be connected to all parts of my life? Why would you chain yourself to a sinking ship Flora?
My app crashes and is telling me to pay 2/5
i was using the app with the payment option but it crashed 3 times, now it’s telling me to pay even though it was the app fault!! I won’t pay money because of a bug, please solve this
good work 5/5
Facebook mandatory 1/5
App forces you to use Facebook to use it. I didn’t use Facebook before the data breach, I sure as heck aren’t going to now. Thus, because of true requirement, I am functionally barred from using the app. Will use one of the competitors that do not require Facebook log ins. Hopefully this changes soon though!
Friends list is privacy 2/5
Please work hard to let users sign up with other 3rd parties, if you know how Facebook has been doing these days.
Pretty good 3/5
By Miraculous Molli
This app is pretty good and it’s really cute, my one big problem is that once I get to a certain level I can only progress if I plant trees with friends. I don’t have any friends that will do this with me so I can’t progress. I know this app is about the focusing and not the world tour, but unlocking a new thing and moving on to the next part really made me feel like I was accomplishing something after doing some boring school work. PLUS there’s a lot of plants that I can’t unlock along the way because I need to do it with friends. I don’t have any friends, I’ve already asked people and they won’t do it:( I just bums me out because I can’t just work by myself. Please consider taking away the friend option or at least limiting it. Thank you 💛
REQUIRES FACEBOOK. DO NOT DOWNLOAD 1/5
By DELETE FACEBOOK NOW
This app requires Facebook for login. It's a pretty big risk to trust both Facebook and flora with your information. Delete at once.
Timer only runs when screen was on 1/5
I was enjoying the app, but then a bug emerged where the timer only ran if the screen was on I continuously got a pop up about payment when I opened it. 4 stars otherwise
App Doesn’t Always Function Properly 1/5
The app will often break after I check on my tree. I will not click away from the tree, but despite this the tree will still die. Very frustrating.
great, but... 3/5
i love this app. it keeps me focused on my homework, but i can’t get past the first level in Brazil! it says to log 25+ minutes so i set the clock for 25 minutes, but when it runs out it gives me a random plant that i already unlocked. if this bug could be fixed i would definitely give this app 5 stars!!
I can’t even use it. 1/5
I DONT HAVE FACEBOOK. WHY CANT I SIGN UP WITH EMAIL. SOME PEOPLE DONT HAVE FACEBOOK. GOODBYE HORRIBLE APP.
Luv ittt...and why I rated 4 stars 4/5
This app is amazing and I love it. I haven’t really used it for long though. In fact I downloaded it today. It’s amazing and really cool but maybe you should add game coins instead of real money since not a lot of people have or want to use it. Like say every 10 mins you get $5 and later you can save the tree by using the coins you earned (Not real money.) maybe you can buy some items like trees or things to customize your tree like adding fruits for for longer time such and the fruit ripens over time.
I usually have trouble finishing my schoolwork due to the constant checking of my phone but this app has helped me avoid hanging in my phone for an hour to do all the things I needed to! And it helps a good cause which is two birds in one stone! I totalpy recommend it.
Simple and effective! 5/5
By Nic Notorious
Love this app, it’s simple, effective, and motivating! Use it when I do pomodoro style studying. Every Sunday on Twitch I do Study with Me Sundays and this is the app I use to keep me on track.
When will it be available for email or phone number 1/5
I got the app but I don’t have a Facebook and I don’t want a Facebook and they still haven’t made other ways to sign up besides Facebook. if the creators reading this please hurry. Please please hurry I’m behind in my school work and i will delete it if y’all don’t hurry. Please please just fix it. Thank you.
Facebook required 2/5
Love the app but it requires Facebook which I deleted to help me focus on things and to just have a more refreshing life away from the competing life social media brings
Good to challenge with others 3/5
It’s a nice app to challenge with others to not use your phone and stay on task.
favorite app of all time 5/5
I love this app - please keep doing what you’re doing, developers! The new update has made my app crash a lot & stop working entirely. But I’m sure they’re working on it. Add more stops to the tour!
Charging me for tree I️ didn’t kill 2/5
By Amanda Z 123
Hi I was using this app and as soon as I posted on Facebook to share it wouldn’t let me continue using it and every time I try to start planting a tree it is making me pay $5...
Good app! 3/5
I really like the app so far super cute and actually effective but I wish we could see how many trees we’ve grown or “play” with the trees more. It would be more interactive and rewarding that way.
Love it 5/5
By I love me only
This app helps me so much I just love it I can study or do something productive
This app changed my life but still some bugs! 4/5
I am so glad I was told about this app! It’s made me a much better student and made me more aware of cell phone addiction. That being said, the few complaints I have with this app are:
1. A couple of bugs, including difficulties arranging “planting with friends”. Even if a friend sends me an invite, it never shows up on my phone! PLEASE FIX THIS!
2. The world isnt BIG ENOUGH! There has to be a way to expand this app even further; part of me doesn’t want to finish it because what’ll I do without new plants to motivate me?? Maybe expand to another planet with cool space plants? Or include even more species of plants with the current countries? Or more countries??
Thank you Flora!
Requires your birthday!!! 1/5
I don't mind that it requires the use of Facebook, or my friend list, or my email. But there's no reason conceivable that this app can't work because I won't provide my birthdate.
Really helped me focus while studying or doing homework 5/5
By dome epais
losing productivity by writing this, but it's a nice app. would be cool to really see the tree
Why Facebook and not email? Why with friends? 2/5
By Rachel Ryan
If you are a kid and are not allowed to get face book this app is useless.
Also if you want to do homework alone you also can’t use it.
Productivity is growing 5/5
Flora is tremendously helping me with my productivity. It keeps me off my phone and focused. Now admittedly, I could do this on my own, but just having that little plant’s life depending on my staying off my phone is inspiring me.
definetly a 5 5/5
i like it because it does help me a lot for studying and when i feel like i used to much of my phone i would take a break of 5/10 minutes not a lot but i do like impressing myself by seeing how much time i have. You should download this app
By iPhone user 66373895843
Wish there was a way to use this without Facebook
Feels so good to take the control back 5/5
I have half a dozen time control apps on my phone, and this is the most effective one, which has became my daily driver! It feels so good to regain control over my time! Plus you can bet my money over your session. Every night before I go to sleep, I put 5 dollars into a 50 mind session. Boom! I wake up energetic the next morning
Several children want to use this app but this app requires them to have a Facebook account which most students do not have including me, so I hope you can change this and make it so you just need to log in, no Facebook or anything.
Great app because it does help me stay focused however ,
1. It does not notify me when my time is up
2. When my phone goes to sleep or I check my phone. My time instantly goes from 25 minutes to 5:30 minutes. However when that 5 minutes is up it records it as 25 minutes on the feed .
I like the app, but I kinda broke it 5/5
I like the app but my phone died one night when I used it to help me sleep so I wouldn’t keep getting on it, and I had money on it and now I can’t use the app. I tried uninstalling it and getting it back, but that didn’t work so I’m not really sure what to do.
