Some bug fixes
It keeps me focused so well omg and I love it so much the only complaint is that it should be a little easier to get coins bec 10 for 30 minutes isn't a lot especially since everything costs 500 coins and to plant a real tree is like 2,000 so maybe like double (or triple) the amount of coins we get. Also being able to add minutes while the timer is three is already growing would be great !! pleasee
Use it everyday at work and it really helps me stay away from my phone.
It’s proven science that positive reinforcement is the best way to develop a habit. I’ve been using this app for several months, more actively this last couple of months to write my thesis, and I’m now in the habit of using it every day to stay productive and it works. You’d think that “killing” your virtual trees would not be enough incentive to not play with your phone, but it is!
I've been using this app for a few months now, and it's definitely helped me get work done. Even though I don't go on my phone that often, it's a good reminder to stay focused on the task at hand. If I do feel like going on my phone and need to work, I'll just open this app and set an allotted time to stay off my phone. I highly recommend this app to anyone who is serious about getting work done, so that the motive to keep your tree alive accompanies the desire to get stuff done. Even if you lack self discipline, I think it's worth a shot. I really like the assortment of trees, so you can set goals to get new trees or get enough coins to plant a tree in real life. Great app!
After getting this app, my phone usage has declined significantly and I have more time to pursue other aspirations.
I use it to stay focused when I have tasks to do. I'm waiting to save up more coins so I can buy different species of plants that can then correlate with the different types of tasks that I'm doing. For example: type A tree for studying. Type B tree for relaxing. Etc.
I love fun productivity apps, and I’ve been in a bit of a rut in terms of focusing lately. This app was exactly what I needed; I’m weirdly super motivated by arbitrary rewards for good habits (e.g. Fitbit, Plant Nanny water tracker, etc). If you’re the same way you’ll love it! I’m hoping that one day the developers are able to create a whitelist feature so I can read in my Kindle app, though I know the FAQ says this may be impossible in iOS. Can’t wait to check out the extension!
I was skeptical that growing a pixelated tree would actually help me, but it really does. This actually works really well with DEEP WORK by Cal Newport; I just finished his book and this is helping having a little incentive to not turn on my phone. This has been the best use of $2 for me in a long time.
So helpful and useful! I love all the additions -- it's clear that they work very hard on this app. There are tons of new trees and features that have been added since I first checked it out. (I hope that someday we will be able to buy different types of ground, too -- can you imagine having a sandy beach under your palm trees? Cute!) Keep up the great work!!!
One of the biggest reasons I get work and writing done
this is one of my favourite apps of all time! It keeps me focused, but also lets you listen to music while it's on (make sure you turn it on beforehand though). I also love the charity aspect of it, once you earn enough coins from study you can donate a real tree, seriously awesome app.
This bug is not fixed.
I have been using this app since it first came Pi. It was brilliant, however this app is getting more and more annoying over time, coz the price for the plants just went exponentially high over a short period of time. I mean if you increase the price once 1 year or even 6 months it's ok, but I feel like they are just increasing it whenever they want. And the small plants are at the same price as the large trees which doesn't not make sense. I have lost my motivation in using the app due to this.
This app has been a wonderful tool to bring some motivation back into my life. Not only does it encourage me to leave my phone alone, the Firefox add-on helps me stay focused when using the computer too.
Honestly the best decision I’ve made in the lead up to my exams. I’ve had it on my computer for a while and bit the bullet and purchased the app. For the price of coffee it’s absolutely more valuable. Love love love it. Especially the timed study break function too, keeps me in check and I’ve found I’ve just naturally been more productive and less reliant on my phone whether the apps on or not, but a great safety net to get me started!
Forest should encourage anybody to stay away from their phone. It combines the pleasures of being environmentally friendly and the sensation of getting your work done in one app! Being able to plant real trees gives a common goal for people to share. Seekrtech must be valiantly commended for this creation!
Thx that helped me
Come along with my VCE
Fantastic app that ensures you don't get distracted by your pesky phone and all it's notifications! It's such an aesthetically beautiful app that grows cute little trees/shrubs as you study or spend time with friends. Definitely worth the 2.99, highly recommend!
Wow it actually works, amazed by how it helps me turn back to what I should be doing. I never realised how much I get distracted until this app. It's almost like I get withdrawal symptoms when I can't use my phone but feels so good to have that extra push to get things done.
Most enjoyable tool I've found to help raise awareness of how I spend my time and just enough analysis to aid in making adjustments.
Simple, clean study aid. It yells at you if you get distracted, and you can change the messages. Please add more trees, the new ones are great.
This is a great app to effectively keep you off your phone. As a result, you’ll see a huge increase in productivity. My only complaint is the Apple Watch app. First, the complication should show the remaining time instead of a leaf. Second, the Apple Watch app should be able to start a new tree of the app is already open and active on the iPhone.
I'm in my first year of college and this app has been helping me stay focused on all my studies. I love the cute lil trees and love the environmental impact it has since I'd like to major in Environmental science 👍🏻🌎🌲
The app is honestly one of the best things that I have ever discovered. I have tried numerous other app to help keep me focused and organized with my studying time and even just everyday tasks. This app gives an immediate reward (the little trees!) for studying that other apps don’t give up. It sounds a little stupid, but honestly growing these little trees gives me the motivation to continue studying because I see how my hard works pays off.
I love this app! It really works and it keeps me off my phone. I wouldn’t change much, except I wish you could make the focus periods longer! Personally, I can work for very long and I wish they were longer than two hours. Maybe you could add a separate forest that lasts forever, and in the forest a customizable or original tree is planted for every real tree you plant. This way, people can get visual incentive for staying on-task even when no more upgrades are available, and they would help the environment! These are some small things I’d like to see in the app, but besides that, it’s perfect! Whenever I need to do something, I use the forest app.
感觉其实是在和手机游戏之类的app争夺我的注意力 虽然并不能完全阻止我在电脑上刷网页什么的 但至少注意力是集中的 不会一直被各式消息打断了 算是一定程度上解决了这个问题吧
This app is great however, after using it for some time now I’ve unlocked most achievements. Can we possibly get more achievements to unlock soon? I personally think it motivates me a bit more.
I needed Forest so badly and I never realized it until I got it. This app helps me stay present and focused better than any other app or productivity tool I’ve ever used! Truly a gift! And the social responsibly aspect- planting trees, REAL trees! Couldn’t get any better.
I used this app to help write my masters thesis, and the browser app is also extremely useful now that I am at work. I’ve introduced this to so many people and not one has said it wasn’t worth the money.
