Adorable game and an effective app

I very much love this game. It’s so adorable and it excites me to know what other species of each realm I have unlocked. I personally love this game a lot because it revolves around gardening; I garden myself and I try to learn more about it. The game itself is self-explanatory for the most part. The game itself is manageable without any in-app purchases in my opinion. I have no particular issue with app thus far. I can’t wait for the upcoming updates for this app although. I’m not sure if the 3rd stage evolution of the plants is a secret that must be figured out or if it just hasn’t been patched in yet. I’d like to get insight on that to be honest. Overall, great app that has adorable characters/plants/atmosphere.

In regards to its effectiveness as a focus app, I’d say it does a great job. I honestly have a phone addiction and I’d spend hours on my phone watching YouTube/Netflix, scrolling through social media, and so on. Even with the app limits that Apple implemented, I still find myself bargaining with myself to add more time to these apps. I consciously know that I’m doing it, yet I can’t get myself out of that habit quite yet. The basic function of the app which is focusing for durations of time to earn more water to grow and to plant new plants has helped me reducing my screen time and focus on my coursework for college. I’m so grateful to have come across this app and the developers who created it.

Thank you so much for this game!!

This app is the only one that actually motivates me so much more to focus on my work!!

The many plants and levels you can unlock keeps this game going for me. Bonus—everything in this game is so adorable and the animation is joyful and nice to look at.

Also, THANK YOU for not making this app so ad heavy like other apps can be! The only way you need to watch ads is if you want bonus rewards which is a pretty good incentive because I always want extra rewards to grow my plants and buy more things from the store 🙂

I really can’t wait until the developers make a multiplayer mode for focusing on tasks, I think that’d be pretty cool!

One thing I think would be cool to add, is if you can actually see the gardeners around the plants! I find myself pretty disconnected from the gardeners so adding this feature would make it much more enjoyable and realistic? 🙂

Lastly, if there could be more options for land bgm and white noise such as coffee shop jazz or people talking in the background, etc., that’d be awesome! Instead of me having to go on my laptop to play some bg noise, this would be convenient!

Other than that, great job developers! Keep up the good work!

Questionable.

This app is somewhat effective, I suppose. However, exiting out of the app cancels the timer, and it wants to you to not turn your phone off at all, claiming that flipping your phone over saves more battery than turning it off. It still gives you rewards if you quit halfway through, which seems counterproductive to me.
On strict mode, it doesn’t allow you to go into apps; which is fine, accept that it completely restricts your ability to go into apps at all. You also have to use suns in order to put apps on a whitelist.
When I told it not to send me notifications, it responded with “Are you sure you don’t need a little reminder to stay off?” Which just makes me personally very uncomfortable.
It’s a fine app in regards to focusing, I suppose. However, certain things (like the ones I mentioned) make me feel as if there’s more going on in the background, and most definitely does not make me feel like my phone is safe. It seems like they’re trying to mine your data.
It could be just me, but it could also very much be more. The whole thing is suspicious, in my opinion.

Hi, thank you for trying Focus Plant - pomodoro study timer to grow forest and flora. The flip mode is recommended because locking or turning off your phone won't work sometimes (iOS will remove apps randomly from background and will fail your focus session). Whitelist requires sunshines because the whitelist feature counters productivity if using abusively (whitelist game app for example) and we encourage our users not using it at all. Hope we can help with your study, productivity and to-do!
