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. To download or unlock non iOS version of Forest, this requires a separate purchase. However, by logging into the same account, the account data can be synchronized across all platforms. • Due to budget constraint, the number of real trees each user can plant is limited to five. We will be introducing limited time events that will allow users to plant more real trees. Please follow our social media page or check the in-app announcement for more updates. • There is only one version of Forest on the App Store. Other apps that are similar and mimics Forest are not developed by the Forest team. Thank you for your support!

  • Great

    Very simple, very helpful
  • Seems simplistic, but fills a need well

    By AnnieWB
    I wouldn’t have thought that “giving up” or killing/ growing an animated tree on an app would be an actual lasting boundary to prevent me from thinking twice or three times about whether I really need to use my phone but it does! I also like how this defaults to 25 min chunks of time (like the pomodoro technique)- good for being more accountable to my tasks.
  • Great app

    By HollaRalla
    I’m so excited to be able to plant my real world trees soon! So much focusing.
  • Helping keep me focused and off my phone

    By peacelovevegetables
    I love how this app makes me feel good about being off my phone rather than shaming me for the time spent on it. I’ve been using it as much as possible to work toward planting my first real tree!
  • Surprisingly helpful

    By vimspot
    If you sometimes turn to your phone when overwhelmed and stressed, forest is a gentle reminder to get back to your task.

    Good social features
  • group feature needs work

    By smoothsounds
    I have been enjoying this app, but the clunky group work feature is a bit of a hassle and I would love to see some substantial improvements. It seems like even when you’re “friends” and connected in the app, you need to put in the code for the room to access it. You can set the timer after a session for a break, but then cant set it up with a tree again, meaning it is necessary to make a new room and enter a new code if you want to keep working together. Please improve this feature!!
