## Top productivity app in 126 countries. More than 2 million satisfied paying users. Featured in Apple's "Amazing Apps" TV commercial. ## Staying focused with the cutest gamified timer. ## Over 340,000 real trees were planted on Earth by our users. "Forest works well, and if your goal is to be more in the moment, ignore your phone and actually talk to your friends when you are with them, this is the app for you."— The New York Times "In order to establish new, better habits, it's helpful to engage with tools that make it easier to reinforce them. For anyone looking to curtail their phone usage, the Forest app might be for you."— Business Insider 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!

  • Really helpful, would like more customization

    By Rattify
    This really does keep me from getting distracted by my phone. I want the tree to grow and I am motivated not to hurt it. It also works as a timer. You can set it up beside your computer and see the tree grow until it's time for a break. This is a nicely visual method for those of us with terrible time sense, more useful than a numerical countdown. The tree doesn't die instantly if you leave the app. You can switch away for about 3 seconds, which is important for me because I use my phone for music or audio books all day, and a few seconds is just long enough to switch radio stations or whatever. You can also use the lock screen and the camera safely, talk to Siri, and answer phone calls. So all the really important functionality is still available to me. I think the app would be a lot stickier if there were more options for customizing the forest besides unlocking tree types. I would like to arrange my trees and choose background colors and grass colors. I'd also like to be able to zoom in more to see my trees bigger. The Christmas trees were soooo cute and I wish I could keep them! One interesting thing about the app is you can't just buy trees. You can only buy powerups that increase your rewards for using the app. In a way, that's frustrating, because I am impatient haha! But it genuinely motivates me more to use the app. I admire the creator for refusing to take the easy money and ensuring their app is as effective as possible.
  • worth the money

    By divya!!
    great app to use while studying/working. worth the $1.99
  • Add vibration

    By Daxer_
    Please add a phone vibration feature when a tree is finished. I often go over the timer because I am too busy studying and don't check my phone for the time remaining.
  • Best app for studying!

    By Famous Chili
    Amazing! It’s kept me focused!
  • simple but powerful app

    By irnee.hs
    so worth the dollar
  • Very Helpful!!!!

    By Trinissa
    Love this app, useful for being productive!!!
  • Loving it so far!

    By IndigoMist
    I’ve only just gotten this app but it’s helped my productivity loads! The only problem is when I’m trying to use my phone as a calculator or texting a reply and suddenly my trees die, I wish there was a sort of a pause button on it (even though it’s fine the way it is). I also love how you can buy different trees but I wish there were more achievements that one could unlock, I find myself not having enough money to buy items (especially as the price goes up by 100 coins after every purchase). I also wish there was a setting for longer than 2 hours (I usually go out for longer than that but don’t bring my phone with me and I can’t help but lament the amount of coins I wasn’t getting). Besides that, everything is awesome and this app is definitely worth its price.
  • Good App!

    By 游依然
    helps me focus!
  • Great application

    By Robottalk
    Fun and really keeps me focused!
  • Awesome Little App

    By asterrid
    This app is one of my favorite apps on my phone. Its simplistic design allows me to easily use it and prevents me from getting distracted on my phone. I’d definitely say it does its job and it has its fun little reward system that keeps me wanting to stay focused. I would recommend to anyone who has a habit of picking up their phone purely out of habit. This is also a good tool to see how much time I spend on certain activities. Overall, it is fantastic easy to use productivity app.
  • It really helps!!

    By Djhambone
    I really like this app. It helps me stay away from my phone while I’m working.
  • Genial

    By sval29
    Gran aplicación! Realmente te ayuda
  • Exceptional

    By cupataewithsugaandakookie
    I could never bare to kill a cute little tree so this is the only thing that motivates me to study and not procrastinate. I've tried so many apps and videos, but this is the only thing that works. Nice job on the app guys!
  • <3 this app

    By ivyioli
    I’ve been dying to get my hands on this app and I was so happy when I finally persuaded my parents to make my first app purchase ever!! This app is the real deal and the knock off free apps can’t compare to it. It does really help me stay off my phone which helps me focus and be productive with schoolwork! One thing I wish tho was that the app rewarded just a bit more coins because it takes a WHILE to get to just 500 coins for a new tree/bush species. At this pace, I could have the app for years and still have so many trees/bushes to save up and buy. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone who can self-motivate themselves to start using this app!
  • Great app!

    By clarinet_77
    This app has helped me manage my time, which has allowed me to improve my grades. Overall, this is a great idea!
  • Eye candy motivation in 3D!

    By Lord Ogilby 
    I’m a visual person. I HATE “FLAT DESIGN.” I think it’s a horrible trend that won’t die. I miss Steve Jobs’s skeuomorphic design. This app is a time tracker that incorporates skeuomorphic design! All of the icons and symbols and cartoons are NOT FLAT and ugly and fluorescent and boring, but very much 3D and bold and cute and pop out from the screen! I actually feel like I’m building something versus gross fluorescent gradient crappy icons that every other focus app uses. Yuck. Thank you for being a true artist! Form and function exist together in this app.
  • Outstanding

    By fleabledilebewee
    This app helps me stay productive and helps the earth stay in good health! Everyone should have this app!
  • Love it

    By Thug lifetime
    Honestly it makes being focused fun. Lol
  • When I use it

    By ThisNameIsntTaken50773
    I’m a procrastinator and always find excuses to not do what I’m suppose to be doing. I’m also competitive and want the best forest in the game. When I actually use the app, it works perfectly! Now I gotta force myself to use it more often and stop finding excuses to “be productive” by using my phone.
  • Fantastic

    By Yayforpie!
    Absolutely fantastic app. Nothing else to add. Just get it.
  • Very effective

    By JonaElliott
    What a great app. I’m already a pretty disciplined person but this really helps me sit down for half an hour and do my daily reading without distraction, and makes you realize how often you pick up your phone for no reason.
  • Best app ever

    By DesiNoob
    Useful effective tracking promodoro app
  • Love the app!

    By luldelyaonthebeat
    I use forest so much! As a teenager, I find myself on my phone A LOT. So when my friend recommended forest to me I wasn’t sure about it. This app is great for studying and for wanting to put your phone down and going to sleep. This app is great and I find myself on my phone way less thanks to this app!
  • Powerful Motivator

    By Alex141592
    This app has been very useful in keeping me focused while I do schoolwork. Because of the responsibility of keeping my trees safe, I can more easily avoid my phone during homework. Because my phone is usually the main distractor, I end up being a lot more efficient with my time.
  • Love it

    By kawaiicannibals
    This app helps me stay focused on my homework and my writing! I love it!
  • Gamify life

    By JVT91
    A fun way to stay focused and gamify life. So far, so good—easy way to stay productive when I need to.
  • Recent glitches

    By DianaChristine3
    I love this app but I feel like it’s been glitching a lot lately. I’ll leave it running and when I go back to my phone it’s not on the app and/or stopped counting when it hit 25 minutes or whatever I set it for. Hopefully future bug fixes will address this issue.
  • Best app for productivity

    By mmmble
    Love this app, I focus better and stay away from random social network browsing. All because I don’t want to kill my virtual plants. Can we PLLLEEEAAAASE have mor e white noise? I absolutely love cafe in paris.
  • Fun focus app!

    By AFR0831
    Works well and added fun to mix things up a bit for a focus app.
  • Good not great

    By SkepticalKumail
    It is possible to circumvent the block by using Siri or performing actions from the control center.

    By sololange

  • Great for productivity 👌

    By All the memes 👌
    I love this app so much it keeps me off my phone, I never even knew I was so attached to it! It has actually improved my grades because I’m not on my phone as much. it is really encouraging for me, cause Who wants to kill cute little tree? Well I am absolutely in love with this game! Great job forest!!! 😆
  • Interesting!

    By Erhuluanzi
    I like the sense of planting a tree, it gives me sense of achievement!
  • Rewarded ad for iOS

    By nancy1193
    I totally love this app! Perfect for cutting down phone time and getting work done. I see a rewarded ad section for Android which doubles your reward but I don’t see that for iOS. Is this not a feature available on iOS yet ?
  • Worth every penny

    By hgoggle8675309
    I’ve had this app for three years now and it was definitely worth the purchase. When studying, I constantly check my phone when my mind wanders and doing so further distracts me. When I plant a tree, I don’t want to kill it so I put my phone down and get back to work. The different types of trees makes it fun as well.
  • Not a technical person

    By Southa11
    I’m really trying to figure this app out. It was recommended to me by a friend and I still don’t understand how it is supposed to help with restricting me from using my social media pages
  • forest is a great app :))

    By Zana bana
    it has helped me a lot w my productivity! though i would like a feature where i can choose which apps i can access (ex: my calculator app)
  • Amazing

    By Elikanobi

  • It is perfect!!

    By Jmance
    This is a really fun app that is making me a better person. I am addicted to this app that makes me not use my phone! I am addicted to not using my phone!!! I love it!
  • It does exactly what its suppose too!

    By Sezzar3000
    I've only used this for 4 days and i've already improved my focus and productivity for work and studies. Its also forced me to use my phone less in general. Highly recommend this to anyone who want to get more done in their life!
  • Altruistic Procrastination Substitution

    By MayumiAmargo
    This app gamifies and pro-socially influences my self-sabotaging behavior. By planting a tree (timewise) we are able to assist farmers across the globe. Furthermore, impact our corner of the world by improving our own behavior through achieving our own goals. By helping ourselves we help others! Love this app! Novel idea.
  • This app is great!!

    By 잼Sir
    Forest helped me get to almost the pre-smart phone era level of concentration! This is amazing
  • Very helpful

    By Go! Fan!
    It works.
  • I love it!

    By Elnaz A95
    Motivates me to do more
  • Great app! Very helpful

    By Daddy-"O"
    This app is very useful when having to do something unenjoyable
  • This keeps me so productive!!

    By marcbear9
    Every time I would download this app I would delete it because I never opened it. About 2 months ago I decided that I was on my phone way to much and I wanted to challenge myself to do better. I re-downloaded this app and it has been going great! The layout is fantastic and the motivation tactic works like a charm. It is 100% worth the $2 and I recommend this app to everyone. Even without the extra trees/bushes this app is great to help you stay focused on your tasks. The cute extras are just an added bonus. In short, this app is great for getting what you need to get done, done. All you have to do is find how this app works for you and get in a routine for using it.
  • Forest

    By WestLaker2011
    Awesome! The money is worth it. Not too boring, not to active. Focus away! P.S. Don't get Flora. It's only a dumb imitation and exploits you to spend a lot of money.
  • Feels nice to be rewarded for concentrating

    By Checkie
    It’s pretty, easy, and works
