## 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! 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 the 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.

  • Helps me focus when I study!

    By erinandgil
    I started using Forest to see if it would help me stay focused when studying and doing all my high school homework. I have to say that it has really helped me stay off my phone. Now all I want to do is grow more trees!!
  • Good, but could be better

    By ajpollard100
    This app does keep me focused, but would be better with an in app calculator and notepad, I did pay money for this app and think i deserve to be able to use a calculator when studying and doing homework
  • Amazing app!

  • Motivating

    By Tracy Hen
    If you find yourself staring at your phone for 45 minutes at a time, this app can help you stop doing that.
  • Use it with friends!

    Study with friends and encourage each other to presist!
  • Limit procrastination

    By ArbonneVP
    I have really noticed a habit of picking up my phone for no purpose other than to waste time or procrastinate doing what I know I need to do. I find myself getting more done in a day.
  • Useless for anyone but phone addicts

    By delete trevor
    The app makes a lot of assumptions about who you are that made it impossible for me to use. It assumes your phone is always a distraction, and so will do things like kill your tree when you text someone to inform them that you completed something for them. I can’t give a productivity app that hurts my productivity anything more than one star.
  • Awesome, first timer/pomodoro replacement to help me

    By Neuropus
    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!!!! FYI, don’t miss the FAQ—especially if you’re the type who like to know all the rules first. Otherwise the app is fairly intuitive.
  • Can’t start timer from watch

    By milet22
    This app is gorgeous and beautifully designed but I just purchased it intending to start and manage timers from my watch, to avoid the distraction of the phone. However you can only see the trees in the watch but you need your phone to control timers. Honestly the watch app is not useful or functional (though it looks great).
  • This keeps me focus

    By J-ultimate
    Im super addicted to my phone. Every time when I was studying, a new notification can keep me off from my work for a good 10 minutes, which is not good. Thus I purchased this app. I purchased flora(the free version) first, but I want to grow a real tree and help out the community... so here I am.
