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.

  • This app is great!

    By Jane GB
    I am enjoying using this app to force me to limit my time on the phone. I am especially impressed by the opportunity which it gives to help in the real world. Keep up the good work.
  • Good, could use a tweak

    By tadalik
    I am strongly motivated by game style apps and this one works well without being exploitative. I appreciate that there is no way to buy the rewards; I have to focus. I would make it easier to enable certain phone apps to work while using the timer. I would like to be able to dictate but I can’t use my phone.
  • Great

    By Ezra calma
    This keeps me off my phone and locked in and if I do pick up my phone I don’t want to see my tree die so it makes me go right back to the task at hand. This has allowed me to up my output of ten pages a day to 100 pages. Best pomodoro app, especially with the achievements and making focus points the currency to unlock more trees and environmental sounds.
  • What a great app!

    By Piter Echagüe
    I find Forest really useful; it helps me a lot when I have to focus on any task. Furthermore, the idea of creating my own forest motivates me and makes me feel productive. I recommend using this app for those people who procrastinate a lot. I know it’s a big issue sometimes, but you can help yourself with Forest!
  • My new best friend

    By Zkleyn
    This app is allowing me to focus on another level in my life, getting more stuff done then I ever have before. It’s creative, it’s smart, it uses foundational psychological principles to help me stay on track and be motivated. Yes yes yes
  • Great as Pomodoro App

    By VaiChidrewar
    Finally a Pomodoro that works!! I love the gamification in the form of growing the forest. I am hopeful of planting a real tree one day after accruing lots of coins.
  • Focus

    Gives a positive incentive to focus, rather than just the usual pressure of reaching deadlines

  • Mcat review

    By louise in the ville
    I’m studying for the MCAT right now and have normally standard, average study habits. However, the days when I study using forest I’m more focused, I’m studying longer, and I’m more motivated until the end of the day. Forest has changed what I think is possible to accomplish for myself. I think everyone should get it!
