    I had a REALLY bad day of studying yesterday. That’s what prompted me to download this, and so far I don’t regret the purchase. It helped me focus for 140 minutes already and I plan on using it more in the coming weeks. Surprisingly the incentive really is there for me. I love phone games, which is part of what distracts me from my studying in the first place, and this method works great with my compulsive personality. So far I enjoy setting my goals in shorter increments of time, 30 minutes or less. When my phone goes off, that tree almost fully grown gives me a little extra resolve to ignore that text (it can wait, after all) while I finish up what I’m studying. Keeps me on task, when those small breaks to check Facebook, texts, or games often spiral into an hour of scrolling. Productivity also has another purpose with this app. It’s nice that someday soon I could use my points earned to plant a tree in real life, though I wish there was a separate currency for this as I’d also love to have more species of trees for my forest. Earnings so far are really slow since I only use the app for studying, and then in fairly small increments. I think it will be a while before I can afford any cosmetics, much less a real tree. Like another reviewer, I’d appreciate some sort of whitelist that does not penalize for using certain apps. Forest lets you access other applications but will cut your earnings in half if you select that option. It’s better than nothing, but I do like to use Quizlet on my phone. Overall, great app! Really helps with studying.
  • It's great for keeping from checking my phone, but it crashes from time to time

    When it crashes I need to turn my phone on and off to get the app to work - using iPhone 6

    Excellent idea to keep you focus, rewards you for it, and you he to review how long you focus on a nice display. Just need a bit more content.
  • No wifi

    I have started school like 2 weeks ago and I have lots of trouble staying focused, but this game helps me a lot! I like to go against my friends to see who can have a better forest. Overall this is a really helpful game that can help you a lot if you have trouble staying focused like me! 😜
  • Great idea, terrible user experience

    I like the idea but it's difficult to use - not clear how to sync phone and web browser on another device, interface severely lacking in the user-friendly dept.
  • Great app!!
