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!

  • The best focus app!

    By foofoofxh
    It’s design and premise is so cute and easy to use. There’s an online version as well, and it blocks all the websites you’re not supposed to be on.
  • The best app

  • A must have app

    By Malasiah
    Makes it easy to not be so distracted by technology
  • Actually Works

    By Bad Bad Monkey
    It really does work. Trust me, I’m a stranger on the internet. Every time I catch myself scrolling and scrolling and scrolling and scrolling, I think, “Hey! I should grow a tree and move on with my life.” And then I grow a tree and move on with my life.
  • Watch app

    By amirslm
    Why we cant start planting by watch? I think it can help users to have better planting and also they dont need to work with the iphone.
  • Fun way to stay focused

    By Mercy Hill GSO
    Fun way to stay focused and track your progress.
  • Pretty good app, however...

    By North Korean Defector
    All around pretty awesome. Easy to understand, straight forward, but it would be great to make the various sounds offered from the app more attainable. I saved and got the beach sounds and it’s been great to study too. To reach the next audio sound will be weeks away and this is without any other spending allocated to trees. I get the idea of keeping coin value high but maybe varying the price of different items or reducing cost of audio tracks offered might allow for more wiggle room among users and create higher drive to use the app.
  • I love this app! 🌳🌲🌴🌱

    By Veronicatxoxo
    This is the best thing to keep me focused at work. Or in any situation where my default mode with a moment of down time is to reach for my phone. It’s training me to focus and to not automatically look at my phone whenever I get a chance. It is easy to use, and really adorable. I can’t say enough good things!
  • For gods sake fix the safari extention

    By Ali Hamodi
    Seriously pay attention to the platforms you are claiming support for. The safari extention for this app makes it almost useless and not working on the blacklisted websites.
