• Forest is available for iPhone and iPad, and can be accessed across all iOS devices with a one-time purchase. To unlock the non-iOS version of Forest requires a separate purchase. However, by logging into the same account, your data can be synchronised across all platforms.
• Due to iOS system limitations, we cannot determine what app the user is currently using, thus Allow List cannot be implemented. If you wish to access other apps without affecting your tree, please turn off "Deep Focus Mode".
• Due to budget constraint, the number of real trees each user can plant is limited to five.
• There is only one version of Forest on the App Store. Other similar-looking apps are not developed by the Forest team.

simply life-changing.

This app is a simple and a useful means for productivity. Whenever I plant a tree or a bush or etc. I am always determined to not let the plant die because who doesn’t want a perfect streak with no withered plants? Whenever I feel like I spent way too much time on my phone, I just immediately go to the Forest app and plant to hinder me from using my phone any longer. I am much more encouraged as well to actually plant these plants that do not want me to use my phone because as I build up my coins, I can also help in the tree-planting project the Forest team is promoting and is also their advocacy. I have currently purchased 2 actual trees for the Forest team to plant and I can’t wait to purchase more actual trees! This app is very simple yet very useful for everyone trying to combat their phone addiction and finally live life outside our digital screens. My life has improved so much from the past few months with the help of this app and I have never regretted ever purchasing this app.

With a Little Honesty, You can Improve Performance Awareness and Work Efficiency

When you plant and track hours here, you can't open other apps or your plant will die. Therefore, zero activity on the phone. But you can still visit facebook, instagram, and other distracting sites using your other gadgets. That's the setback. That's why I said, you have to be honest by not visiting other non-related sites in your other gadgets while you track hours using this app on your phone. If you do this, you can view from this app the trees and bushes you planted and label them according to the task you were handling during these hours. By looking at your activity page in the app, you will see the work you've accomplished and the number of hours or minutes you spent on them. Great app if you'll only be honest!

A Surprisingly Effective App

I have been looking for ways to help me study since I would be distracted by the tiniest of things, whether it be a message notification or one from a game. I got into a study group online and they recommended this app. This app is paid so I was double taking if it was worth it. I saw the reviews, their opinions and how this app worked and so I bought it. Not only does it help you lessen your time on gadgets, it also helps you plant REAL trees around the world! Getting off the app, when the right option is activated, kills your plant (not the real one) and ruins the look of your forest and nobody wants that, right? It’s honestly a great idea and I love it a lot.
