## 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 400,000 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! STAY FOCUSED • A interesting way to help you beat phone addiction and overcome distraction • Turn your focused moments into a lush forest. GET MOTIVATED • Earn rewards and unlock more than 30 new tree species and white noises. • 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! It's never to late to build up productive habits! 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. • Due to limitations of the iOS system, we cannot detect what app the user is using, so we cannot implement the whitelist feature. As a workaround, we added the "Work with Phone Mode" so that users who need to use their phones for work can also plant trees and keep track of their focused time. • 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!

  • Helps unplug for ever aspect of life

    By Aqua death
    Getting a goodnight’s sleep and staying off my phone during an essay has never been more motivating. The rewards and ambience music this app provides will make lonely homework nights bearable. You will be surprised how much a dead tree will keep you going.
  • Great!!

  • Worth the $2 - Get Sh*t done!

    By tclapstorm
    It might sound stupid to most people that may say “why should I care about growing a stupid tree?” Well if you treat it as a constant reminder that this tree will die, hence my work progress will die, but I only have “x” amount of time left until I can take a short break. I built an Alexa Skill while using this App! Also you should use the desktop version/browser plugin to help on all fronts of distraction! Happy Planting!

    By emtakesovertheworld
    I’ve had this app for quite a while, and I love its simplicity and functionality. It really motivates me not to pick up my phone and I think it’s smart that you can’t spend real money to unlock trees faster because it makes me use the app even more!
  • Pretty cool app

  • Definitely recommend

    By okayeb
    This is one of the few apps that keep me on task and off of my phone, and being someone who works well in a work environment this apps makes any environment into a work one very easily. The only complaint I have is that on androids the app is free but switching to an apple phone recently and having to pay was something I really complemented on doing but I know that for me it will pay off.
