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 Mindful Minutes of Apple Health App. • Track your daily phone usage and screen time. • Recall memories of your planting journey with our brand new Forest Timeline! NOTICE • Forest is an app available for both iPhone and iPad, and can be accessed across all iOS devices with a one-time purchase.

  • Pretty good app, however...

    By North Korean Defector
    All around pretty awesome. Easy to understand, straight forward, but it would be great to make the various sounds offered from the app more attainable. I saved and got the beach sounds and it’s been great to study too. To reach the next audio sound will be weeks away and this is without any other spending allocated to trees. I get the idea of keeping coin value high but maybe varying the price of different items or reducing cost of audio tracks offered might allow for more wiggle room among users and create higher drive to use the app.
  • I love this app! 🌳🌲🌴🌱

    By Veronicatxoxo
    This is the best thing to keep me focused at work. Or in any situation where my default mode with a moment of down time is to reach for my phone. It’s training me to focus and to not automatically look at my phone whenever I get a chance. It is easy to use, and really adorable. I can’t say enough good things!
  • For gods sake fix the safari extention

    By Ali Hamodi
    Seriously pay attention to the platforms you are claiming support for. The safari extention for this app makes it almost useless and not working on the blacklisted websites.
  • Why Forest works for me

    By rcrocker13
    I have tried using many app to help me stay on task in the past and none work as well as Forest. What Forest has done is roll the habit and reward into one. Before using Forest I had a great app for focus, but wasn’t invented to keep using it. With Forest I’m planting trees, which feels good and is enough to stay away from distractions during work sessions.
  • Love it

  • I love this App.

    I really love this app, it really works to keep me focused. I have ADHD and the gamification is quite an addictive touch. I hope to see it expand into zoos, animals, buildings, cars, cities etc 😄 I have 2 big feature requests: 1. Please allow us to have an option to exit the app to attend to necessary distractions. As a busy person who’s life spans multiple facets there are times when I simply have to make quick checks, add / edit a to do, quickly respond to an email etc. It’s discouraging somewhat knowing that even when I have to attend to necessaries I will be penalized. We should have an option to set how much time we need to leave the app and come back. Like 5, 10, 15 minutes max possibly with nag notifications to remember that we are to get back on task before we loose our tree and points . 2. iPad Pro 12.9 landscape rotation doesn’t seem to work. Thanks a lot 🤓 🙏
