Forest - Stay focused application logo

## Staying focused with the cutest gamified pomodoro timer.
## Over 300,000 real trees were planted on Earth by our users.
## Number 1 app in 113 countries. More than 1 million satisfied paying users. Featured in Apple's "Amazing Apps" TV commercial.

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.

This app has helped me put down my phone and focus on studying. It promotes a good message and works as a way to positively reinforce studying.


Great for not procrastinating  missesther22  5 star

Love this app! Helps a lot with staying focused and not wondering off and playing games on my phone.


Awesome  Unwritten98  5 star

I use it when I study and I can’t say the amount of times it’s stopped me from going on my phone whilst studying. It would be great if there was a version of this for computers!


Procrastination demolisher.  Kehlani46  5 star

Thanks to this app, my motivation and dedication to my studies has changed drastically. I can now honestly say, since this app, most of the time I want to study, or work on that assignment I kept procrastinating for ages. This app creates an incentive that seems simple at first, yet becomes addictive, as you want to keep planting trees, to see a physical representation of all the hard work and dedication you put in day in and day out! Thank you Forest!


Love it  neddles00  4 star

Sooo useful - maybe a timer that doesn’t make a tree to time breaks could be good?


The best help ever!  Teyah_T  5 star

This is the only focus app that actually works for me. The tree planting idea is brilliant. Sometimes I put the timer on not because I need to focus, but simply because I want to stay away from using my phone and as a result got a bunch of stuff done. The best :)


A great app!  Millie111111111  2 star

I divinely recommend this to any students out there looking to improve their productivity!

Best ideas are those that address real issue  Mary in Australia  5 star

You need this app. We all need this app. Your children need your attention, your work needs your attention and this app brings you presence in the areas that need you most. Don’t delay, small price for big rewards.


Love  Pinkpinkkkiiiii  5 star

I can concentrate way way better with this app. Maybe touching it alot but it helps me not going into all the apps that will make me lose more of my concentrations.


I’ve never been this focused  garbagedisposallisa  5 star

Of all the other phone apps I’ve tried, this one has, hands down, been the absolute best. Not only is the idea of growing a tree cute but the way it is presented it very helpful. Whenever I click out and my tree dies, I always feel so bad. I also like that you can reply to important messages and still listen to music while still keeping your tree alive.

Stay focused  Rabbit Anthony  5 star

Self control is extremely important and this app helps me,I believe you can get the same ability as well by using it


Motivating!!  Strategy123  5 star

This app is worth the dollar, it’s super useful for keeping me focused on my work and its rewarding to see your time and forest grow.


Please make a Mac based version  DC3468  3 star

The browser extension is not adequate when you want this app for all computer work. A Forest version of the Focus app (across ALL devices) is ideal!

Friendly Neighborhood Review

Really great app!  Friendly Neighborhood Review  4 star

I wish we had an option to schedule a time, because I'm really tempted to use my phone at night! It doesn't work so well if you don't use it :)


Best studying app!  jennalynnowens  5 star

I am a biomedical major in college and this app is amazing! I love the concept of the trees dying if you leave the app or if you answer a call/text message. It is very rewarding, and I really enjoy the aspect of being able to save my coins made from successful study sessions and purchasing a tree life tree to be planted, it’s really awesome!! Thank you for such an amazing app! Next, I’m going to try the alarm clock app by the creators!


Fantastic app for productive days!  creedee89  5 star

For someone like myself who will walk past their phone and pick it up and just scroll by habit, this app has extended my days and made me stay more present. There have been many times I look at the clock and am so surprised that the day has gone. You don’t realize how much time you waste on scrolling until you use this app. I love it

Very handy app  _RF_  5 star

I found the app very useful.


Great app, slow progression  JamesRo1993  4 star

Great app, very handy for the studying as I can never seem to keep my phone down for long, although I would say the amount coins earned per time spent growing trees is quite slow making it difficult to enjoy all the different features in a timely manner


A great little app  katiekilg  5 star

Really helps to motivate me to study and work efficiently. You don’t realise how much time you spend on your phone until you can’t use it. Love the fact you can plant real trees too!

Just a bit silly but great

Motivating  Justxjade  4 star

Really motivating, you almost feel bad for the tree if you leave the app and let it die!

Willem Smit

I use this for at least 5 hours a day  Willem Smit  4 star

Forest is lovely. It helped me reduce my screen time dramatically and keeps me motivated ro complete work sessions. I have created tags and so, can see my progress displayed visually, which is motivating and gratifying. Some things could be improved, of course, but overall, the app does its job great and I’m really glad I can use it on my Mac, iPhone and iPad. Keep it up, Forest.

I’m enjoying this app because it truly keeps me focused!


Best study app  Shar0030  5 star

So helpful!

Annie Bakker

But...  Annie Bakker  1 star

I truly love this app, but why does everything get so crazy expensive? From 500 coins to 800 coins for a tree? It’s a little demotivating to be honest. :\ :(


Apple Watch  ;@(!;£&:  3 star

Please allow Apple Watch users to start and cancel timers on their apple watches. It makes it way more convenient and quick. We would really appreciate it.
