Not flawless, but a good study tool.
So fun! 5/5
I find myself getting more done in allotted times than I've done in whole days!
Task managing app is fun and addictive-I've been tracking everything to grow a fun tree and distraction-free!
Great app to Concentration 5/5
I've never ever concentrate deeply.
But since using this app, my concentration got strengthened.
One of the best apps i’ve ever bought 5/5
By Ito Kageyama
This app is insanely useful
Simple yet effective 5/5
I love this app; it really has helped me to use my phone for unnecessary things less. I use it as a timer for doing homework, and I keep trees going constantly at work so I'm not tempted to check my phone all the time.
This perfect little app provides just the motivation I need to stop trolling through Instagram and actually get my work done. It’s adorable and effective and I think everyone who has anything to do at all with their time and has a phone to distract them, needs this app in their life.
Great motivational tool 5/5
I'm currently in law school and sometimes staying 100% focused on casebooks can get to be less than enthralling. However, no matter how dull the case, I can't let the tree die!
You might think you don’t need this app, but you do. 5/5

God I love this app, I mainly have only used when I’m watching a movie on my TV and found it impossible to put my phone down, but now thanks to this app I can really focus and take all a movie or a show has to offer.
Great app 5/5
I find this app helpful when I study. I simply plant a tree so I’m not tempted to check my phone.
If you want to effectively block yourself from using your phone for up 2 hours, this is the app for you. Honestly, it’s a major boost in productivity as well as a great way to break an addiction to your phone, all while having cute and eco-friendly incentives to do so. 10/10, indeed
Would recommend 5/5

So helpful 5/5
By Jack Derridog
I was already using a timed method to work, but this takes it to the next level. I also love being able to work with friends remotely. It’s wonderful!
best app 5/5
ahhh i love this app. i’m really bad about picking up my phone when i’m supposed to be working and this is the first timer type thing i’ve used that actually helps with that. i love that you can set shorter or longer time increments and tag different activities so i can see how much time i spent working, studying, etc. i wish there were
more seasonal/regional tree options? like i feel weird planting grasses/apple trees in january but that’s a personal preference.
Cool little app 4/5
For some reason it really makes me stay off my phone, I don’t want dead trees!
Useful academic tool 5/5
By little green lady
I'm in my eighth semester of a rigorous computer science program. This app helps me focus and nudges me to take periodic breaks. Looking back at the amount of time I spend studying for each class gives me a sense of accomplishment. It also provides data I can use to identify patterns and make appropriate adjustments to my study routine.

Super fun and unique way of staying productive. Definitely worth the two dollars.
Amazingly helpful 5/5
I respect what is made for us to change BAD habits.
Have trouble in signing up 1/5
By Iris djj
Every time I want to create a new account, it’s always in processing, and after a while, it says error occurs, so I wonder how to handle it🙃
Very helpful 4/5
Using forest has been a really good tool to cut back on my wasteful use of time. I find myself being more focused and present, which helps my moods and overall morale. I do wish it allowed you to have like 1 min to respond to a text before your tree dies. That part is a bit annoying. But I know texting is problematic for some people so I can see why it’s not allowed during a planting session. For me it was really to get me off FB and other time wasters. I struggle a lot with phone addiction and this has helped me to start developing better habits.
I am getting work done.
Really Great!! But one minor thing... 4/5
Gosh I was never able to go more than 20 minutes working on homework before Forest, it has really motivated me and makes me genuinely unhappy when I cancel the tree growth and have to see a dead tree in my virtual forest! I love it so much, I just wish new tree “species” were less expensive than 500 coins, that’s probably 12 hours of “focus time” for one species. I see how that can motivate people to focus and work more, but I think the price should be decreased; people, like myself, like seeing progress and results from hard work:)
Overall, fun and motivating. 4/5
I do really like this app and I have fun with it. But they make it really difficult to expand the forest and buy more trees. I think it’s a little crazy how expensive in coins the trees become, and there aren’t enough achievements to get enough coins to buy the trees. So that’s kind of frustrating.
good stuff!!! 4/5
at first I was hesitant I must admit; paying to watch plants grow doesn’t exactly seem worth it, at least as far as my phone activity is concerned. But, I was not disappointed, and am generally satisfied with what this forest thing brings to my studying. Without the app’s requirement to stay off your phone, I would hate this thing because it would never get used

This is s good app

Excellent app, worth the purchase, I focus much more with this app
It works. 5/5
So far, so good.
best app 5/5
very good for focus
By stella m.-rose
actually gets me to do my homework
Really helpful, would like more customization 4/5
This really does keep me from getting distracted by my phone. I want the tree to grow and I am motivated not to hurt it.
It also works as a timer. You can set it up beside your computer and see the tree grow until it's time for a break. This is a nicely visual method for those of us with terrible time sense, more useful than a numerical countdown.
The tree doesn't die instantly if you leave the app. You can switch away for about 3 seconds, which is important for me because I use my phone for music or audio books all day, and a few seconds is just long enough to switch radio stations or whatever. You can also use the lock screen and the camera safely, talk to Siri, and answer phone calls. So all the really important functionality is still available to me.
I think the app would be a lot stickier if there were more options for customizing the forest besides unlocking tree types. I would like to arrange my trees and choose background colors and grass colors. I'd also like to be able to zoom in more to see my trees bigger. The Christmas trees were soooo cute and I wish I could keep them!
One interesting thing about the app is you can't just buy trees. You can only buy powerups that increase your rewards for using the app. In a way, that's frustrating, because I am impatient haha! But it genuinely motivates me more to use the app. I admire the creator for refusing to take the easy money and ensuring their app is as effective as possible.
worth the money 5/5
great app to use while studying/working. worth the $1.99
Add vibration 1/5
Please add a phone vibration feature when a tree is finished. I often go over the timer because I am too busy studying and don't check my phone for the time remaining.
Best app for studying! 5/5
By Famous Chili
Amazing! It’s kept me focused!
simple but powerful app 5/5
so worth the dollar
Very Helpful!!!! 5/5
Love this app, useful for being productive!!!
Loving it so far! 5/5
I’ve only just gotten this app but it’s helped my productivity loads! The only problem is when I’m trying to use my phone as a calculator or texting a reply and suddenly my trees die, I wish there was a sort of a pause button on it (even though it’s fine the way it is). I also love how you can buy different trees but I wish there were more achievements that one could unlock, I find myself not having enough money to buy items (especially as the price goes up by 100 coins after every purchase). I also wish there was a setting for longer than 2 hours (I usually go out for longer than that but don’t bring my phone with me and I can’t help but lament the amount of coins I wasn’t getting). Besides that, everything is awesome and this app is definitely worth its price.
Good App！ 5/5
helps me focus!
Great application 5/5
Fun and really keeps me focused!
Awesome Little App 5/5
This app is one of my favorite apps on my phone. Its simplistic design allows me to easily use it and prevents me from getting distracted on my phone. I’d definitely say it does its job and it has its fun little reward system that keeps me wanting to stay focused. I would recommend to anyone who has a habit of picking up their phone purely out of habit. This is also a good tool to see how much time I spend on certain activities. Overall, it is fantastic easy to use productivity app.
It really helps!! 5/5
I really like this app. It helps me stay away from my phone while I’m working.
Gran aplicación! Realmente te ayuda
I could never bare to kill a cute little tree so this is the only thing that motivates me to study and not procrastinate. I've tried so many apps and videos, but this is the only thing that works. Nice job on the app guys!
<3 this app 5/5
I’ve been dying to get my hands on this app and I was so happy when I finally persuaded my parents to make my first app purchase ever!! This app is the real deal and the knock off free apps can’t compare to it. It does really help me stay off my phone which helps me focus and be productive with schoolwork! One thing I wish tho was that the app rewarded just a bit more coins because it takes a WHILE to get to just 500 coins for a new tree/bush species. At this pace, I could have the app for years and still have so many trees/bushes to save up and buy. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone who can self-motivate themselves to start using this app!
Great app! 5/5
This app has helped me manage my time, which has allowed me to improve my grades. Overall, this is a great idea!
Eye candy motivation in 3D! 5/5
By Lord Ogilby
I’m a visual person. I HATE “FLAT DESIGN.” I think it’s a horrible trend that won’t die. I miss Steve Jobs’s skeuomorphic design.
This app is a time tracker that incorporates skeuomorphic design! All of the icons and symbols and cartoons are NOT FLAT and ugly and fluorescent and boring, but very much 3D and bold and cute and pop out from the screen!
I actually feel like I’m building something versus gross fluorescent gradient crappy icons that every other focus app uses. Yuck.
Thank you for being a true artist! Form and function exist together in this app.
This app helps me stay productive and helps the earth stay in good health! Everyone should have this app!
Love it 5/5
By Thug lifetime
Honestly it makes being focused fun. Lol
When I use it 5/5
I’m a procrastinator and always find excuses to not do what I’m suppose to be doing. I’m also competitive and want the best forest in the game. When I actually use the app, it works perfectly! Now I gotta force myself to use it more often and stop finding excuses to “be productive” by using my phone.
