## 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 380,000 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!

  • Excellent! New complications on AW?

    By Julian346
    This app cut off a huge of time I wasted on social networks. Only one feature request: Could we have a new complication on apple watch? Current one is only available on one watch face. Could we have a mini counting down widget available on all faces?
  • Brilliant

    Works well, there are no problems. It it simple for anyone to understand. It really makes you realize how much you use your phone and when you shouldn’t be using it. Before I had this app I used to use my phone for around 8 hours a day but I only use it 2-3 hours!!!!
  • Great app for focus during work

    By demarro2
    Very helpful when studying or doing work of any kind. Also a rewarding to unlock all the different trees/bushes and to plant real trees.
  • Fun incentive to focus!

    By beachwood_ryan
    Well written app, that gamifies focus. Would recommend to anyone as a pomodoro timer that also keeps you honest.
  • 👍🏻👍🏻

    By Kerrykickass
    I love this app. Use it as extra motivation while I study!
  • Great but...

    By Music11235
    It would be so much better if there was a timer option on productivity, counting up how long the productive action can last. I love the counting down, but if being rewarded for lasting a specific time was incorporated, it would be so much better!!
  • Amazing

    By serene_warrior
    Works wonderfully and help you be focused and do some deep work
  • Good app for focusing

    By Rawr!Monster!Rawr!
    I use this app everyday to focus on my homework without distraction.
  • Helps you focus, especially when you use with others

    By Asdfghjkl1947!:hula
    The only downfall is that you can use your messaging apps when you hold down on the notification on the lock screen
  • Improvement advice

    By good using experience
    Should take back the function of automatically counting the over time. When I set a 30 minutes’ clock, and I keep untouched for 60 minutes, it should recognize as 60 minutes. It was an old function that I really like, not sure why it goes away when I update the app. Still a 5 stars though cuz it is a very good/useful app
  • Nice

    By Chemistry crazier
    Just Like the title
  • Great

    By Gunzang
    I use this when I don’t need my phone and I get coins to buy background music when I study and I’m saving up my coins to buy new tree/bush designs and to finally plant my own tree! Totally recommend if you have a spare 2 or something dollars 😍🥰
  • It’s ok

  • Stay On Target!

    By Rory Chaze
    This is The Perfect app to use when you want to stay focused on something! As someone who has problems with ADHD, I use it as a way to stay off my phone and focused on things I need or want to do! Even if it means bouncing around to a couple of things, I’m not getting on my phone and losing myself to multiple hours of social media! So, by my book, it’s a Great app to have! Plus, I love all of my pretty trees! Who doesn’t like planting cool and pretty trees??
  • Watching those trees grow!

    By deanna chappell
    Much more fun than tomatoes haha
  • Helps a lot with school!📒📚

    By Fancyfruit3325
    I read for about 40 mins- 1hr every night. This app lets me track my progress and see how much I’ve been reading. This also helps a great deal with studying for tests and quizzes. It keeps me off my phone so I can focus on what I need to do. If there is one feature I would ask for is a widget in the lock screen so you can check your time or grow a tree without entering the app! Amazing app and would totally recommend it!
  • Good for focus

  • Great app.

    By lizbeth08
    Very effective in making me put down my phone and getting some work done. I love seeing the amount of work that I’ve put in made into a forest. Very cool idea. Helps with time management as well, for me at least.

    By jade431096
    i struggle to stay of my phone while studying. since downloading forest, i get strangely attached to keeping my tree alive and find myself staying off my phone for 45min-1hr which would NEVER happen.
  • Great App

    By Dance lover 2468
    The rainforest sound not only helps for noise cancellation but as well as keeping you focused!
  • New Fav 😍

    By mommommommy33
    I love how this app helps me stay on track! It’s so customizable, & really cool that you can plant REAL trees!
  • Excellent way to keep off your phone

    By MindlessGamble
    I have a tendency to use my phone way too much, so having a “lockout” app is a great way to keep me from getting lost checking various apps when I wanted to check the time. It has an option to quit the timer if you need to use your phone during the timer you set, and an option to keep using your phone with it still going in the background. Highly recommend for someone looking to reduce their time at the screen.
  • Favorite app everrrrr

    By AV182
    I love this app so much! Makes me so productive... I feel like a new student
  • Amazing!

    By EllaSlime1234
    as a young student, like myself, it can be hard to focus and not procrastinate. with this app, it takes care of that and helps the earth by planting real trees. trust me whoever is reading this, no i am not some bot or someone from this company. i am a real user of this app and it is worth your money. it would be nice to have the option to go into certain apps like calculator or calendar, but otherwise this app is life changing!!
  • Global warming isn’t real. Jk

    By pilot juice
    Great and your able to put your coins to something real like saving the earth.
  • Lifesaver, but there’s always room for improvements

    By Nufile
    Recently found out that Android users get the advantage of watching ads to double their rewards. It is sorta saddening? Because we’d love the same features too. Also, Android users can whitelist apps and their stats still count towards the leaderboard, is that it? When I have work with phone and I have to use it for the task I’m handling I can’t because I’ll get half the rewards, so it impedes me sometimes. Other than that I really really love the app.
  • love it

    keeps me focused!
  • Productive

    By Katkatkat696969
    This app makes me want to do homework and chores! It’s super fun to see your forest grow as you get things done. The only downside is how much in-game currency it costs to unlock just one new tree or plant. It takes a while to earn that many coins.
  • It has helped increase my productivity and decrease my phone usage!

    By Kawaii Kait3017373938
    If you're anything like me and you get distracted easily by your phone, this app is perfect for you. Apps like Moment are great for people to become aware of how much time they spend on their phone, but the app Forest is fantastic for helping people actually stay off of their phone. The visual forest one can build gives an extra boost of motivation to stay off of your phone. I would say it was well worth the two dollars spent to buy this app. The only thing I would change is increasing the potential tree growth time to more than two hours. If you need to get stuff done, this is the app for you!
  • good app

    By chad lundberg
    This app has helped me a lot get all the studying I need to, I have adhd and often get distracted easily when studying or writing papers the app allows me to stay focused by not allowing me to use my phone or get distracted by it. Truly a lifesaver
  • Error

    By Minkang Seo
    I do not know why but it doesn’t seem to be properly working on my phone. Even when i am using my phone after while plating a tree, it does not say like stop using your phone or the tree dies. All it says is that your tree has successfully grown. Can anyone help me??
  • Great **iPhone** app to stay focused

    By Jake 10S
    This is a great app for iPhone. Does not work for iPad, tho, FYI. Otherwise a solid choice.

  • Awesome!

    By Ras Tanvir
    I tend to use my phone to procrastinate all the time, so this app keeps me from constantly checking it so I can focus on other things, like school or reading. I love all the new kinds of trees that keep coming!
  • Love this app!

    By kels.grind.
    This app is so cute and motivating at the same time, really appreciate it and it’s definitely worth the $2!

    By Bob56779974334
    This app gives me motivation to be productive. It tracks what you do when you’re off your phone and it’s motivating to see your progress. I highly recommend this for people who wish to focus on things like studying.
  • It’s cool

    By electricethan31
    It’s a cool way to set your phone down while receiving little rewards.
  • Love Forest!

    By angezao
    I love this app! I've been using it for years as a student and it's the best study productivity app I've ever used. So cute and simple and motivating!
  • This app is fantastic

    By Silverose1414
    Hi! I would just like you to know this app is fantastic for studying! In the day and life of a nursing student it can get distracting to try to study. Yet, with this app is becomes easy and fun. I always love going back and seeing how many trees I’ve planted and it pushes me to try to plant even more. If you are a student who strives to focus but gets distracted this app is for you. I promise you it becomes amazing in a year how many little trees you planted.
  • Superb

  • Excellent

    By GnomeZ1
    My little sisters and I have all gotten forest focus and absolutely love it. We have a daily competition to see who has the most hours of focus and it keeps us from getting distracted when we should be fully together.
