## Top productivity app in 126 countries. More than 2 million satisfied paying users. Featured in Apple's "Amazing Apps" TV commercial. ## Over 340,000 real trees were planted on Earth by our users. ## Staying focused with the cutest gamified pomodoro timer. “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: • Function based on the Pomodoro technique (a.k.a. tomato timer, pomodoro timer) • Plant lovely trees and stay focused on what's more important in real life. • Turn your focused moments into a lush forest. GET MOTIVATED • Earn rewards and unlock new tree species. • 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.

  • Waste of money :(

    By erose78
    I couldn’t get features to work. When I tried to use the FAQ feature for help, it would never load. Basically, it’s not worth money. There are plenty of free apps that are easier and more beneficial to use. I hope they fix the feature glitches in the future. It’s very frustrating for a first time user who is trying to use the app but can’t access tools for help.
  • Get it.

    This app is the only reason I get anything done.
  • Great pomodoro, but poor initial variety and monetization

    By Pollock Whale
    I’m usually tolerant when it comes to in app purchases in free apps, but if I already am paying for this app upfront, why not just let me access all of the available trees? At increase the amount of coins earned per time, if anything. It is going to take allot of time to unlock the content I already paid for, and the menu incentivizing me to pay extra for a limited time enhancement of this ability leaves a little bit of bad taste in my mouth—especially when other free-to-start pomodoro apps start with more variety.
  • Fun and freeing

  • A Review

    Amazing app! I recommend it to everyone. It taught us how to not use the phone and keep our eyes’ health. In addition, planting a tree will have tremendous benefits whether it’s for nature, animals, or people. This is what excited me the most. A huge thank you to the founders and all the staff of this app.
  • Lacking Apple Watch Support

    By jkobesz
    I bought this app thinking it had full Apple Watch support. Unfortunately it’s missing a timer complication, or any visible timer for that matter. The watch app just displays your forest, which is a feat in itself, however, that forest doesn’t reflect the arrangement of the forest displayed on my phone. It seems like a less solidified victory when such details change. Trees also appear on the watch app before their countdown is completed. I really wanted to give this app a 5 but I get the impression that the developer hasn’t fully considered Apple Watch use cases. The watch’s timer app is more practical to use than this for the time being.
  • Lovely and briliant app

    Nice work guys, thank you
  • Love it!

    By KM13!
    I LOVE Forest. It keeps me on track for long periods of time and is the only app that can truly prevent me from touching my phone. I love that when I earn enough points through focusing and getting my work done I will be able to plant a real tree to help our environment! So cool, definitely recommend!
  • Amazing App

    By Jojo2249
    Not only I more productive but the added benefit of working towards making real change by planting a tree is huge! With other focus apps I use I had no incentive but with this I feel obligated to remain true to my timer. I have had the app for a week and I study (medical student) 5-7 hours a day. I have only broken my focus once (keep in mind I only do 30-40 study intervals) Definitely recommend!
  • A great app!

    I always procrastinate, and often use my phone to do so! This app is surprisingly simple, but has been effective for me so far. Recommended
