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.

Stay focused. Be present!

Wonderful  AzureUni  5 star

Works as described and expected. It's a valuable tool!


Great!  Clurichaun  5 star

The only „timer app“ I use now. The guilt of picking up one‘s phone thereby killing the trees growing so, get less points to plant a real one, works for me. My wish would be it continuously time you, no matter how long if on a major productive binge because once hear the timer go off the natural inclination is to reset the timer and while doing that check email and notifications that can wait. Other than that one can save and plant a real tree which is cool.


Nice  Freeman245677  5 star

Is nice

时间都算不准,各种bug  Bend nudnik11  1 star

最近更新后,我可以在学习中开另一次两个小时,上一天的时间永远120分钟根本不准确,bug都处理不好还好意思做收费app? 对你们最近的更新特别失望


A super fun + charitable way to focus!  Mschosengen  5 star

I absolutely love forest! It seriously is the best app I've ever used to help me concentrate. I guess because I'm from the Giga Pet/ Nano Pet era I can't stand to watch my trees die lol! So I stay focused so my little forest can thrive. Now that I know how to use tasks I can see where my time is spent. Seriously thank you for this app! I also love the fact that with enough coins I can plant a real tree! How awesome is that?!


Awesome, first timer/pomodoro replacement to help me  Neuropus  5 star

This is a very well considered motivation tool. It allows you to create in a rewarding way rather than simply mark time. It also uses procrastinators’ sense of responsibility to *another* organism since “self” preservation doesn’t always help us focus. Also, so adorable!!!! Almost 4 stars only because the rules are not written out in the level of detail that exist in the game. However, that’s more of a problem for them because I think more people would use it if they could easily find out ie how to sync between platforms, that you can look something up on your phone without killing your tree, etc. I would like a Whitelist/Blacklist of apps like the Firefox plugin has. But this is ultimately honor system, so it’s definitely not a dealbreaker. Great job!


Must-Buy App.  Amber122333  5 star

This app has helped so much as I study for my AP classes this year.


Really changes you  Jourdan22  5 star

Each time I look at my phone I always need to use it. With this app, there’s an incentive to not use the phone which greatly gives me more time to do other things. Great app to change habits!


Keeps me focused  Stee-rider  5 star

The gamification aspect of this app keeps me focused like no other timer I’ve tried. Great concept.


Easy, motivating, effective  ijustgetbored  5 star

I downloaded the app for work productivity, but it’s made me hyper-aware of how often I actually pick up my phone. For any task, just having the reminder that my phone is not currently available to me is extremely helpful. I’m realizing that I waste a ton of time that stems from, say, just looking at a text that could wait until later. Moral: don’t think this app isn’t useful because you’re not at a desk all day. It has countless uses. I agree with what other users have said about gamification being a good motivator, and the user interface is very appealing. Creating and naming tags produces helpful data. For instance, if you’re concerned about work-life balance, you can see a colorful pie chart with a few simple clicks. One thing: I’m fine with how the trees become more “expensive” as time passes. However, it can take a long, long time to gain sufficient coins after awhile. I’m not asking for instant and easy gratification, because that’s contrary to the spirit of the app. I think adding more achievement bonuses (that don’t depend on having friends that use the app or on leaderboard performance) would be great. Unlocking achievements is also rewarding and something to strive for, so I’d love to see more!


Helpful  gracechurchill  5 star

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!

Isabella :,)

Fav forever <3  Isabella :,)  5 star

Honestly love this app w all of my liver. Like it helps me to stop procrastinating and the fact that you get points makes me exited to study? 100% worth the $3 I paid. 💕💞💕💞

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.


Great app  Naeeeehereeebetchess010372  5 star

It’s nice and easy to use. This app really pushes you to spend more time on your work. It has helped me with my urges to procrastinate.

Only thing that works!  Sofie ch  5 star

And I get to plant trees in India(though can not exceed the max of 6). Love it!

Avoid Being a Phone Zombie  Brittany Herbener  5 star

Forest has allowed me to stop staring at my phone and start being present! As an added bonus, after 2,500 points, Forest plants a real tree!

Sierra Woods

I love my trees! 🌳🌳  Sierra Woods  5 star

I always had a difficult time studying and putting my phone down, even to sleep. For some reason, I’m in love with growing each tree so I can get more species and make a huge forest! The only thing I dislike is that the maximum is 2 hours, because I wish I could plant a tree for the entire time I’m asleep. But it’s helped me accomplish my summer work in the cutest way possible !!


Hands down one of the BEST productivity app!!! OMG!!  Ifedimma  5 star

I friggin LOVVVVVEEEEEE THIS APP!!! I used to use a regular pomodoro app that just automatically do 25 mins with 5 mins breaks. I’ve used it for a long time until I got introduced to the forest app. I didn’t even bother with the free version, I just bought this app and it was the best $0.99 I’ve ever spent!! It’s literally the best way to gamify your life in a smart way! I absolutely love this new updates with the new graphs and pie charts, like I can’t stop gushing about this app. I’ve been consistently using this app for a good month now and it is going to be in my collection for life. My only tiny itty bitty wish is that I could have the option to use the 12 hour timeline clock rather than the 24 hour military time clock. Other than that, this app is perfection and I 10/10 recommend this to everyone. If I could give this app a 100/100 stars I would!!! Keep it up Forest App crew!!


:)  llucifered  5 star

very cute and helpful. i’m glad i can play my podcasts/music while i grow a tree. has definitely increased my bursts of productivity at work.


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.

Rabbit Anthony

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!


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!


V good  Ger99x  5 star

Thank you!  EibhEircomAcc  5 star

Love this app so much! can't study without it.


Amazing for yourself and others!  BingBongBosh:)  5 star

The fact that you can buy a real tree to help is incredible! Really helps for studying too :)


Love it  Marimatosdias  5 star

Just a bit silly but great


Love it  Izzyluvspugs  5 star

It’s has helped me stay focused and keep on my studying. I definitely recommend this app’


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.


Ariel Fernandes  arielfernandes  5 star

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.

Defiantly defiantly worth it!!! I love the whole concept and everything about this app.


Focus-friendly.  mr.agreeable  5 star

Forces you to stay focussed and stick to a work schedule. Great for people who need a little encouragement (*cough* restriction) to stay on track with a schedule.
