Brilliant for reducing screen time!

I use this app for two purposes, primarily it reduces distractions while i'm studying - i have a clear time goal, a way of monitoring that time goal and the reward of a cute little tree at the end of that study session. It breaks my study time into manageable chunks and i know that if i do get a text or notification, i only have X minutes before i can check it.
The second reason i use this app is to reduce my screen time - restrictions on apps do little to stop me hitting "ignore time limit for today" and mindlessly scrolling for sometimes hours at a time. This app is a really effective way of getting me off my phone and into the real world and at the end of the day i can see just how much time i have spent away from my phone.
Overall a brilliant app for people who struggle to focus and also great for those with a little bit of a phone addiction like me!
The trees and plants are a really good idea and i'm waiting for the day this app lets me plant a real tree - i'm not far off now!

Perfect for Revision!

I never leave reviews for apps because I feel I have better things to do, but I cannot emphasise enough how worth it the £1.99 I paid for this app was! I’m currently going through my GCSEs, I take them next summer. This App was recommended to my whole school year by one of our teachers to help us with Pomodoro Studying, and I’ve never been so motivated! The app could just use a couple of tweaks, but other than that I have no complaints! I feel the need to study because otherwise the little sad face sign that’s on your daily refreshed garden if you haven’t done anything make me feel really guilty! I feel pressured to study in the good kind of way, and it’s really helping me! I managed to get a really high mark in Chemistry for an end of topic test that I wasn’t present for, for most of the teaching due to ill health - that made me feel amazing! I feel like I’m finally regaining those top marks I’d started to lose since my younger years, let’s hope that this sticks around!! Thank You!!!

Forest is literally the best app I’ve come across for revision or just to keep me motivated. For a while now I’ve struggled with becoming distracted or discouraged From completing tasks or work. This app has pretty much turned this around making studying fun! So far I haven’t killed any of my trees because, although it sounds silly, the sheer guilt I feel of I stop. It allows you to do small manageable chunks but at the same time pushes you to do more by offering you the option to get a fully grown tree. Also, once you have built up your virtual coins you can spend them on: new bushes; new trees; new sounds and even plant a real tree somewhere around the world. This forces you, in a good way, to keep going as you want to unlock all the cool, new things and build your forest. You can even create a forest with friends and build it together which can be extremely motivating because you almost don’t want to let the team down. Overall the best app I’ve ever had and definitely worth the money!
