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.

Pros and cons of Forest - Stay focused app for iPhone and iPad

Forest - Stay focused app good for

It helps me a lot to do all my work! I dont want to kill my tree so I never leave the app....:3
This is a very smart idea and really helps motivate you to stay focused! It has a nice layout and helpful features to track your progress. It would be really excellent if it had a Mac desktop version!
I never want to kill the tree, so I never use my phone! It really curbs distraction, and I feel so accomplished when I have a bunch of trees in my forest!
This is the only focus timer app Ive tried that motivates me to stay off my phone and focused - I dont want to kill the tree! It would be nice to be able to continue growing trees - for example if it takes 120 mins for the tree to get to its final form, Id like to be able to select that tree and continue growing it for the day in smaller increments. It would go nicely with the tagging function and would motivate returning to the same task. Plus, I hate that I cant ever see the trees in final form if I work in 30 minute increments!
It keeps me focus on important things. Sometimes I leave phone to focus on reality:-)
One of the best applications Ive got. It helps a lot to be more focused, thank you so very much!

Some bad moments

This trend of requiring account for basic task is disturbing. I dont know the developers. Dont want to know or have to trust them. What benefit does an account have when iCloud APIs are freely available to us?? Next thing the coffee makers will ask to create an account too. Went to give them a feedback in app, guess what, need an account for that too. Please side with simplicity efficiency and privacy.
I like the app, had me really focused, but then I realized it didnt kill the tree when I left the app. And yes, work mode is off. Kind of worthless if it doesnt hold me accountable. Please fix and you will gladly get my 5 stars!
It is amazing! Ill give you five stars after I get it to iPad resolution.
Im really annoyed because the app keeps crashing. It opens for about three seconds and then closes again. If you have a paid app, it should work all the time! :(
