1.) It helps me filter out distractions. Like most of us if we are being honest, a mobile phone can be the enemy of concentration. This app prevents you from playing on your phone & incentivises you to focus & stay off it. You plant trees by achieving concentration for a set time & this builds up to a forest ⁣ ⁣ 2.) It breaks my study time in to manageable chunks. A bit like the Pomodoro technique, with a countdown timer & the inability to use your phone, else your lovely little plant won’t grow ⁣ ⁣ 3.) It reduces my screentime. I imagine I’m not the only person who has been horrified by their screen time reports, especially during the lockdown. The app makes me less dependent on my phone & helps me focus on work, rather than being a slave to notifications ⁣
Brilliant app

This was recommended to me by my counsellor as I have a horrible time focusing on my work especially when my anxiety is running rampant, which it has been since lockdown. I was a little worried it wouldn’t work for me as I was convinced you’d need to tie me to a chair and force my eyes to my screen for me to focus. But it’s amazing how the small incentive of planting a virtual tree for your virtual forest makes a difference. This is just a wholesome app that has made a huge difference to my workday and I’ve pretty much recommended it to anyone who would listen. If you find yourself procrastinating instead of getting stuff done, this app is for you.
A must for procrastinators!

What a brilliant idea. If you’re a results-driven person who is unhappy with the amount of time you’re spending faffing on your phone, this is worth trying. The idea that - with regular use - you’re doing good by concentrating on a task (or even just leaving your damn phone alone!) is a winning one. No-one wants to see a tree whither and die - virtual or otherwise - so it really does help you to stay focused. Plant trees, get stuff done - then plant a real tree. I love it.
Only fun for a few months

I’ve been using the app for a few months and have unlocked all the trees and sounds and reached the 5 real trees limit. I don’t know what else I can do with the coins I’ve collected and the app seems to have lost it point. I don’t think it’s worth the money I paid for it if it’s only playable for a few months. I don’t understand why the developer put a 5 real tree limit - surely you’ve earned enough money to plant more real trees.

As someone with ADHD I find this app especially helpful when I have school work to complete. I really like that you can change the amount of time you want to focus for, as sometimes 5 minutes is all i can manage. Would definitely recommend if you’re studying for exams or even just want to practice putting your phone down every now and then. :)
Fantastic way to manage distraction but...
VicViper9 on 2020-06-07
...unless you use Deep Focus Mode you can just grow trees and continue to use your phone as normal which renders the app pointless. This could easily be resolved by, for example, doubling the rewards for Deep Focus. I would definitely rate this app 5 stars if that could be addressed - as is just 3 for now.
Deep Focus really works!

For the longest time I’ve struggled focusing my mind to do one task at a time, I usually multitask and easily loses focus ending up not finishing any task at all. With the help of this up I can both focus and have fun whole doing it knowing I get to grow a tree after I’ve done my task/s.
Great app if you lack focus
Russell9898 on 2020-06-07
Amazing way to stay focused. You also feel a sense of achievement seeing your tree grow afterwards. Would be 5/5 if more trees were easier to unlock (given you paid for the app) and more trees looked different depending on how long they were growing for, minor nit picks though.
Really clever idea!
William Shelton on 2020-06-07
Brilliant idea to deter you from using your phone and keep you focused on what you should be doing. To make money to plant real trees! Only wish is that when the phone is locked you can check remaining time from the lock screen! Apart from that I have no complaints!
Couldn’t live without this app

I adore this app and have for the past 3 years yet please change it back to way how you could see planted time in minutes not hours. The new update has changed everything into hours and I can’t find the old option that allows you to choose between hours or minutes.
