I was sceptical about this but actually

You know what it’s really useful. Whack on airplane mode and set the tree growing for a study session and you don’t want to take airplane mode off and kill the tree and waste time faffing. Actually works even without airplane mode - usually my phone pings and I go to the app that’s calling me and suddenly I’m in the hole and god knows how long I’ll be there before I realise. Now even when I get a WhatsApp or a Instagram notification but I have a tree growing I think no that can wait I’ll work until my tree is done. The fact that if you grow enough trees they plant a real one for you is pretty cool too. Wish there was a way to plant multiple different trees coordinated with subjects (ie cedars for chemistry, oaks for physics etc) automatically and without having to pay!

Prefer the look and less-cluttered feed of Forest to rival Flora, though both are good. Flora has so many disparate features rammed in that it gets a bit much for me, and for the look of it too I think. While Forest seems to be a bit more… focused? One quibble is that until recently I was unable to activate Deep Focus mode, or any of the other features under that menu. That recently changed and I’m not sure if it was a bug they have fixed or if it’s just that you can’t unlock those until you have clocked up a few focus sessions. If the latter, that REALLY needs to be explained next to the unusable features (eg a ‘why can’t i use these yet?’ link). But if it was a bug, thanks for fixing it.
Great for keeping off social media when you choose
Batmav78 on 2021-07-30
I use this app at least several times a week (and should probably use it more often!) to help me schedule productive time where I am NOT ALLOWED ON MY PHONE - especially social media. It works really well for me and means I’m much better at sticking to my timings. I love the trees you plant when you’re successful and am slowly collecting my virtual coins so I can plant a real one eventually! Love the little messages it gives you to remind you to put down your phone if you try and pick it up mid-productivity session! Great app, have recommended to lots of people I work with to help productivity.
Seems solid
Glennium88888 on 2021-07-30
I’ve only been using it a few hours but it seems like a solid way to focus. There’s a lot of IAPs but none of them affect the way the app works and constant maintenance, new content and server upkeep comes at a cost so having the option to support the devs is nice, plus I’m fairly sure it can all be unlocked by planting trees anyway so that’s nice. Overall seems like a very good app but if anything particularly egregious happens I’ll update here :)
No more widget?
Tanya.s on 2021-07-30
I love this app! It’s helped me so much to keep track of all my uni work and helps keep me focused/not distracted. The only reason for 4* rather than 5* is I just switched to the 12 pro max and can’t seem to get a homepage widget like I could on the 8 plus. Perhaps it’s not available on the newer software? It’s very useful though for seeing an overview without opening the app
Can’t get deep focus mode
rollingduck on 2021-07-30
Can’t get deep focus mode, meaning I can leave the app with no consequences making the whole thing pointless after spending money on app. If there is a way I can? As have looked in system pref to no avail, I will happily remove bad review, but it’s not obvious and if is the case a really stupid design flaw. So be warned before purchasing.
So encouraging
hdidiosfifoejn1232 on 2021-07-30
It doesn’t bombard you with notifications and nothing is overwhelming, which is so needed for me as a pin dropping in the next room is enough to distract me. With this I could track my improvement in concentration and actually got things done.
Saved my productivity!
EV-MU on 2021-07-30
I’ve seen such an increase in not only my work flow but also my ability to actually appreciate my down time rather than spend it mindlessly scrolling on social media. Thank you, Forest. ❤️
Fun app
jd1!2!3!4! on 2021-07-30
