Simple and motivating 5/5
The best part about this app is how it translates personal self-discipline into benefits beyond oneself; if environmentalism floats your boat, the potential to eventually plant real trees just by staying the hell away from your phone is very motivating—much better than meaningless badges or pointless competition through toxic social media.
Focus on the important stuff 5/5
By Brian Stettenbenz
Forest app helps me put down my phone for prolonged periods of time and keeps me focused on the important things in my life: work, family and good books.
An app that I use to get more done at work and graduate school.
This app is used by many people in Korea. 5/5

Great app 4/5
Love this. It really helps to keep me on track (for some weird reason).
Super helpful 5/5
Really helps me stay focused when I need to get a lot done.
Actually life changing. 5/5
Fun, simple, and motivating enough to keep me off my phone during the day.
A gentle nudge toward productivity 5/5
I use this app to encourage myself to read in 20 or 25 minute bursts or complete other tasks while avoiding distractions. It works well for me. I'm always happy to see my tree or shrub grow and am loath to murder it by giving in to distractions.
This is a fantastic app. 5/5
This is a great app. It’s simple and effective.
However, I recently purchased new trees with my coins and I haven’t seen them in my forest yet. Is the type of tree that is built random?
Thank you so much for this app. It helps me focus!
This app is awesome 5/5
For you study freaks, the Pomodoro Technique is very useful in studying because it emphasizes intense studying. Think of it as intermittent studying where you study intensely, and then take a small break, and then resume again with intense study.
What is clever with this app is that you can set a pomodoro timer and simultaneously “grow” a tree to create a forest. When that timer is up, take a break; a tree is grown after the timer and you receive coins. You can use these coins to plant real trees. So, this app is designed to increase your productivity and contribute to the environment. I hope this provides whomever is reading this review.
This app is awesome. Go and download it!
I am a senior at a college prep high school with about 5 hours of work a might and this app is the only reason I’ve been able to succeed like I have. It’s truly wonderful and motivating to see all of your work quantified and collected. 100% worth the price * 97533. I love Forest!!
Forest is a lifesaver 5/5
By Kane lover
If you get distracted by your phone easily, do yourself a favor: download this app now. The $1.99 is MORE than worth what you'll get out of using Forest.
Great App 5/5
I love this app! It keeps me productive, and working towards growing a tree is an effective motivator.
This app is wonderful for shooing distractions, and I’m overall pleased with my purchase; however, there are a few minor issues that I have. First, instead of setting a maximum of five real trees planted, I recommend making the first tree more attainable, and each one following more expensive, with no cap. Second, the advertisements claim customizable statistics, but I see no place for customization. I would love to see more visualizations of more data, but I have no way to do this. Finally, this is probably more of a personal thing, but the FAQ section doesn’t load on my phone, which I find a little odd. Overall, it is a great app, but it needs more real world tree planting and data customization.
Changed my life! 5/5
Please add a tree with Spanish Moss, gulf coast style!
Love it 5/5
This app it’s really helped me stay focused for short bursts, accomplishing much more than I would otherwise.
Great app 5/5
Keeps me focused
Can’t sync on iPad 2/5
I love this app on iPhone. I’ve used it on iPad since the day it was made compatible. However, for 4 weeks now my sync hasn’ worked. It shows last sync ‘4 weeks ago’, and if I hit the Sync in preferences it crashes the app.
I’m afraid to reinstall because I’ll lose a month of progress. I’m hoping an app update fixes sync and saves my trees. That would make the iPad app 5 stars, but until then I’m reluctant to use it again.
Excellent - the ONLY effective productivy timer for me 5/5
Forest must have the right kind of reward system for my procrastination-loving brain, because I keep returning to the app to set aside time to work, write, read -- all the things I used to do before my phone put every distraction in the world at my fingertips. Customizable but still very simple and fluid, this is exactly how an app for this purpose should work. I also downloaded the developer's other app for sleep quality, and have had much better luck adhering to a bedtime.
Great focus app. Love it 5/5
Love the app love the incentive to do more to get different trees. Would love to be able to join other peoples rooms and have more accountability and

Can’t plant from watch app 1/5
Please add more trews & flowers 5/5
Please add more new trees and flowers! I love your flowers. By the way, the new moon tree is beautiful!
This helps me SO much 5/5
By Nonya Busines
If you’re like me and you’re opposed to hurting things and getting work done this is definitely for you. You have the choice to grow different trees and use different sounds help you focus will you’re working.
This app is genius!!! 5/5
Helps keep me focused and on task. My grades and productivity have improved!
Great Timer 5/5
Every feature is great!! However, please add a feature where you can add you friends through other means, preferably by phone number.
So good! 5/5
One and onlt So cool and beautiful app in my iphone
Good motivator 5/5
By Amiibo crazy
Love this app. I didn’t think it would really motivate me but see more and more trees and shrubs pop up really keeps me motivated.
The most outstanding application I’ve ever used 5/5
I’ve struggled with procrastination almost all my life, never being able to do anything without losing focus for more than 30 minutes tops, buying this application was one of the best decisions in my life, seriously turned it around, the feeling that I’m doing something productive and at the same time earn points from it is so fulfilling, I’m halfway to being able to plant my own real life tree, and I’m super excited. Seriously, if there is one application you should buy, it is this one!
Great App! 5/5
By Hanis Rofiq
There are so many distractions on a phone! And this app is the killer of all of them! Great idea, great execution!
Awesome app! 4/5
Only suggestion is allow users to set breaks any time, not just immediately after a tree. Sometimes I forget and then I miss my chance to take a timed break.
Love it! 5/5
I use this to keep me from checking stuff on my phone while studying. I love that there aren't a million in-app purchases; they actually want you to earn cool trees and bushes!
Life saver! 5/5
I’ve never written an app review, but this app has been a life saver as a returning graduate student with ADHD. It forces me to focus when I want to find a distraction on my phone. I love this app!
Since I started using this app I definitely have been getting more stuff done definitely worth paying for
Love it 5/5
Works great to help you stay focused.
love it!!!! helps me concentrate 5/5
By The five star Instagram
i’m a NOTORIOUS procrastinator and i really struggle with applying myself. forest helps me stay concentrated when i need to get work done!!!! i dont want my forest to die 3. one thing that i would like to be added to the app is if we made a few apps accessible like google docs because i have some school work on there. i can see how i abuse that though so im kinda glad it isnt on there at the same time
New ui is terrible, need better incentives 1/5
Kinda unmotivated to use this app. Seems to be all Chinese people and the rewards are boring.
Many grammar mistakes, sounds like a beginning English speaker wrote this app. :(
Speeding the process 5/5
I believe this app to be amazing! In my personal opinion, I feel strongly towards the helpfulness of this app! A simple reading that would take me two hours or three to finish due to procrastinating, was cut into 35 minutes because of this app!! I simply turn it on focus on my reading, finish and have more time to write papers. As a college student this app is a must have!
Very great app 5/5
Pretty good 4/5
By Quanah Potts
So far, seems good. The messages psychologically encourage you to work, and the idea of nurturing a tree helps too. Time tracking is also nice. Mainly just wish you could pause the timer if something unexpected comes up.
Overall the app is probably one of the better Pomodoro timers.
Best productivity tool on the market!!!
Great app for focusing! 5/5
I tried a number of different apps to block distractions or restrict access to the internet. The first one to really work was Forest. By making the experience of blocking out my other apps look and feel like a game, Forest made it so that I felt much more motivated to turn away from the distractions. Plus the forests you grow are cute and they become very satisfying reminders of how productive you were.
I do wish there were more trees in general.
