Ratings and Reviews
This app helped me focus a lot more when studying. I was a bit unsure of paying money for this app, but it is completely worth it!! I used to always pick up my phone during studying to socialise or play games, but now I have no need to because Forest encourages me to stay focused! I would recommend this app to all students who need help to focus, or even just to get off your devices for a certain amount of time! I would also like to suggest two new features. Firstly, it would be nice to be able to decrease but mainly increase the time when you are using it because sometimes I do homework for longer than expected. And secondly, it would be amazing to be able to use study apps such as google classroom or restricted google use (maybe like a category based list like Apple screen time). An easy way of doing this, would be to add a way to edit a list of apps or categories you are allowed to use during the time when you are studying.
Thanks so much!
Definitely worth it
This app is definitely worth the money! I was a bit hesitant when I first saw it, and I thought it seemed counterintuitive, but it is so useful for studying- I don't know what I'd do without it. Once you set a timer, you can't leave the app or the tree will die, meaning that you're less likely to go on social media or games to procrastinate. Knowing that you have a timer also makes you want to stay focused rather than zoning out, and there is a sense of pride when you see how long you've managed to stay focused for. I managed to study for about three hours on one of the days and didn't feel emotionally or mentally drained because of the ability to set a rest-time timer. I really liked the rest timer because it doesn't let you add more time on once it's up so you can't be tempted to say "just five minutes more" and then not get back to work. When I wasn't using the app, I would procrastinate for hours and relax when I needed to study, but as soon as it was on I got heaps done. I really recommend the app.
Really helpful, still require self discipline
So I’ve been using this app for quite a while now since it was recommended at a study skills talk at my school. I downloaded it immediately, and since then I’ve found it extremely helpful when I’m trying to knuckle down and get things done. It really gives you the incentive to work for the entire duration of the timer, and then you get a nice pay off afterwards.
The only thing to note is that you need to have the discipline and drive to actually use it, and use it to its full potential. You may be tempted to just not set the timer and trust yourself, or you might want to have a quick look at something and so you let your tree die.
Otherwise, wonderful app, perfect for students who struggle with procrastination and distractions (such as myself).
