Great for Developing Study Habits
msarmiento1 on 2021-09-21
Overall, this application is 5/5. The visuals and theme are beautifully done and cohesive throughout all aspects of the application. It is perfect for users seeking to break unhealthy habits so common with cell phone usage. It could be particularly useful to adolescents as their limbic system and prefrontal cortex develop at separate times creating the need to practice and develop executive functioning skills explicitly (Laser, J.A. & Nicotera, N, 2021). Using a rewards system, this application effectively promotes self-discipline and self-regulation. The positive reward of growing a successful tree or forest capitalizes on adolescents heightened sensitivity and desire for reward (Steinberg 2014). Instead of creating a punishment or negative consequence for the inability to stay focused and off other apps, Forest rewards time well spent. Users can choose what type of trees they want to plan and work towards earning coins to buy a bigger selection of trees and plants. This allows the user to really make their forest their own and become invested in it, therefore helping positive brain development. A huge benefit is the ability to train the user’s brain to focus for extended periods of time. By starting at ten minutes and with the ability to go to 120 minutes, the user can increase at their own pace the amount of time they can enter focus mode. Through varied rewards, the application encourages the practice and growth of self-discipline. The achievement badges for users who plant trees multiple days in a row and establish practice patterns really emphasize the importance of practice and repetition for positive brain development and self-regulation. The more the user practices self-regulation and self-control through the app, the easier it will become.
Very Good App but with a very annoying flaw
Aye.en.dee.why on 2021-09-21
The app is great for what it does. It’s not too complex, but just has enough fun functionality to keep you motivated and involved. You might not like these kinds of gamified time trackers if the game part isn’t attractive to you (aka you don’t like growing trees or raising an RPG character), but for everyone else they should like this. There is only one very very annoying flaw. There is no landscape mode, at least not on tablets. People have been asking for this for a while now and it still hasn’t happened. I understand why they’d hold off on making it initially but with the release of the Magic Keyboard (which is now gen 2) that puts iPads in landscape, they should have developed this by now. Essentially it’s their way of saying only use this app on your phone. Also it’s not a bad web plugin but I don’t really find it that useful. Maybe if your workflow lived entirely in a browser, it’d be more helpful. This isn’t to be a downer though. It’s a very good app, it just has some flaws that are puzzling at best and keep it from being really great
Great for people with ADHD
Oliviagirl1,000,000,00 on 2021-09-21
As someone with severe adhd in high school this app is amazing! 1. It helps me stay focused and not start scrolling social media like I usually do. 2. It shows me how long i’ve worked for and keeps track of it (which is very helpful when entering my attendance for online school) 3. It has greatly improved my time management skills, I am able to set time for work and breaks! So much better than a normal timer app. Four stars because I do use my calculator on my phone a lot for school and it would be nice to have one in the app, but not a huge deal at all.
Helps me focus
anoint maryam :) on 2021-09-21
I’m so glad I bought the Forest app. I saw other people use it so that made me use it as well. I really like this app because it helps me focus on my tasks and prevents procrastination. I recommend this app if you want to get things done without distractions- but in a cute way because the planting is quite nice and adorable. I removed one star because I think I was supposed to get 2 trees for 24 minutes in stopwatch mode but the app only gave me 1. Any way, this app is great. 🌱✨
ijc33 on 2021-09-21
I do online school so I get easily distracted by things in my room. I also have adhd which doesn’t help. But this app helps me focus on my schooling! And I love being able to see at the end of the day how many trees I planted! And they have a huge variety of trees you can plant. Amazing and worth the money! I have seen a huge difference in my time management! If you have trouble focusing or need somthing to motivate you to get work done this is the app for you!
Fun and helpful
Olivia_grace01 on 2021-09-21
I enjoy this app because it keeps me focused. There’s an option where you cannot go on other apps and that had been beneficial to me not going on my phone and getting distracted. The only thing I don’t like is that I paid for the app and then there are things in the app you have to unlock and you have to have coins to unlock them. It’s just annoying cause I didn’t want to lay for it and not be able to have more accessibility within the app.
Great app with small problems
Toshiro_ on 2021-09-21
I like this app so much and i love using it with friends but the only problem if you use it with friends you have to make a new room every session which is annoying because we do it 6 times a day and in every time it takes almost 5 minutes just to make a new room and invite friends Small problem and easy to fix but it wastes a lot of time unfortunately Hope developers solve this as soon as possible because its really annoying
Reclaim Your Time
TheDavidLaws on 2021-09-21
This app is great. It's helping me reduce how many times I pick up my phone, and get off it earlier at night. I usually plant a 120 min tree right before bed so I really won't be tempted to doomscroll if I can't sleep. It would be nice if there was a feature to allow phone calls and several other basic features without killing your timer plant, but overall it's a simple app to help you build different habits.
I want to see the tree grow
尼克皇 on 2021-09-21
When I finish the time focused on my things, I would like to see the tree grow with my hard work, and next time I see this tree with a feeling of continuing to help it grow, then it will always be growing or in a state of growth when I use this app to follow my work time allocation. I love this app and hope it will be much more creative in associating with the my mood, just like watching a child grow.
Honestly my favorite app to track work
Greendog31 on 2021-09-21
Such a helpful tool! Truly does the trick especially for keeping me off my phone to do desk work. One thing I’d love to see is if there was a way to track the same type of tree in weekly or monthly categories. I tend to separate what project I’m working on with different types and it’d be easier if it was summed up instead of tallying each one.
