## 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.

  • Incredibly Useful Time-Management App

    By Sibwisbwuebwnw
    I normally don’t write reviews, but this application deserves an exception. At first I thought it might be somewhat useful; I’ve not found that Forest is an integral and important part of my life. The minimal reward sequencing of Forest, planting a virtual “tree” when you’ve completed an adjustable time commitment to stay away from your phone is a friendly and positive reminder to avoid distraction. The fact that the Forest application actually plants trees when you’ve accrued enough focus currency makes this a wholly incredible idea. I would recommend it to anyone who finds themselves scrolling away valuable minutes and hours of their lives.
  • Something wrong with the time on each day

    Seems to be something wrong with the time on each day display. Maybe because of the IOS 12?
  • Useful study app

    I used the Pomodoro method before with just my phone alarm, but the loud beeping was annoying. The app’s gentle chime is a great cue without disrupting people around me, plus the growing trees part is fun. I wish there were an option to finish a few minutes early or extend the time five or ten minutes depending when I finish my task— I used to do that with the regular timer.
  • Fun trees, great goals, very motivating!

    I’ve had such a positive experience with this app. I use it during work to stay focused, before bed to reduce screen time and I even set it before I drive to cut off the temptation to mess with my phone at stoplights. All of this has helped me cut back on the time I am on my phone. A+ would recommend!
  • Great App

    Helps me be productive
  • Great way to focus

    By DustinH
    Instead of constantly interrupting my work with Facebook and Twitter, now I’m finally focusing on work in hour long sets. Not only do I interrupt myself less but I find myself allowing less other distractions as well. My productivity has gone up significantly since starting to use this app.
  • Beautiful and easy to use

    By TamiD88
    Beautiful design and great app to concentrate or just stop looking at your phone. The only thing that could be improved is better synchronizing between the chrome version and phone version.
  • Great focus app!

    By tdc187
    I love that this app keeps me honest and “prevents” me from using other apps. I wish the Apple Watch app had more capabilities, such as the ability to start a session from the watch.
  • Forest fun.

    By theMozsh
    Great app. I would like to see more options to purchase in game items as to make donating more fun and easy. More trees and shrubs. Remember that there are millions of living animals in a forest. They would be fun to purchase. Keep up the good work love it.
