If you want to temporarily put down your phone and focus on what’s more important in real life, you can plant a seed in Forest. As time goes by, this seed will gradually grow into a tree. However, if you cannot resist the temptation of using your phone and leave the app, your tree will wither. The sense of achievement and responsibility will encourage you to stay away from your phone, and will help you make better use of your time. Stop getting distracted by your phone, make you self-motivated and get more things done. Stay focused. Be present! STAY FOCUSED: • Function based on the Pomodoro technique (a.k.a. tomato timer, pomodoro timer) • Plant lovely trees and stay focused on what’s more important in real life. • Turn your focused moments into a lush forest. GET MOTIVATED • Earn rewards and unlock new tree species. • Share your forest and compete with friends and users around the world. • Plant trees along with friends & family. • Unlock achievements and earn extra rewards. • Plant real trees on Earth and protect the environment with tree-planting organization Trees for the Future. STATISTICS • Manage your own tags and view detailed statistics of your time distribution. • Browse your weekly, monthly and even your yearly big forest. • Track your focused time in the Apple Health App. • Track your daily phone usage and screen time. • Recall memories of your planting journey with our brand new Forest Timeline!

  • Productive Studying

    I really enjoy this app! I purchased it a couple days ago and I couldn’t wait to start planting trees!!
  • Totally Delightful

    Really enjoy this app. It’s a surprisingly effective tool for resisting the urge to derp around on my phone.
  • Does what it’s supposed to!

    I really enjoy this app, I always feel bad killing my trees so it keeps me off my phone and focused on work! Great idea! I love that you can see all your tree progress and build points for other trees! Some ideas to improve! It’d be cool if you could have an “over all” forest! One that you can combine small trees into bigger ones, make it more elaborate, and potentially a tree community! Like wise, if you buy something, like a new type of tree, you get that amount of trees taken from your community forest! Just an idea 😊 I love it! I just also would like to play more with it after having stayed off my phone for so long 😅
  • Worth the purchase

    By Nicknamebnnjnnnnn
    I have using this app for the pass 2-3 months and it’s been great. I stay focused at work, and any other task that require my undivided attention. I just set a time frame to be productive and it allows a time section for breaks. Give it a try!
  • Great!

    By Reviewer #17565
    This app really helps me focus. My only complaint is that you get just one focus soundscape (rain). To unlock more (beach, cafe, etc.), you have to use coins to unlock more, which forces you to choose between boosting the functionality of the app or planting a tree in real life. I wish these two features didn’t have to compete.
  • I just planted my first real tree!

  • Keeps Me Focused

    By Lukeskins
    I don't want to kill the tree !
  • Great!

    By Ashlimes
    This app really helps me focus, and the rain sound option is extremely helpful. It’s satisfying to see the forest grow.
  • Trees don’t die?!?!?

    By Savie54321
    Ok, so this app is pretty helpful, with cool graphics and all that, but I think it would be better if the free you planted died when you left the app; it would be more of an incentive.
  • Honestly my favorite app to track work

    By Greendog31
    Such a very helpful tool! Truly works especially for keeping me off my phone for chunks of time and ironically motivating to see my forest grow and grow :) One suggestion: before purchasing a new type of tree, if there was a way to see all the stages based on time that’d be awesome.
