I love the app. The functionality is amazing. It keeps me off of time-wasting apps. My review is more about the events. For the events to be included is indeed fun. But the time sensitive nature of them makes me want to rip out my hair and delete the app. I've used Forest for about 6 years and have missed EVERY birthday item because their free collection period for the events are generally about 4 days. It really ruins the fun of it when you're actually busy irl (summer) and don't check the app.

Hi, thank you for the feedback. Every exclusive tree is once free to unlock for a few days. We made sure that users can be notified in the app as well as across the social media so that they won't miss the redemption. If you're interested, you may consider unlocking exclusive trees with Time Crystals. Thanks for your support!

Amazing app, works as described. However, whenever the tree has finished growing, the "background noise" (beach sounds, cafe in Paris, whatever) plays full blast on my speaker until I turn it off. It's been a huge annoyance, especially when I'm in study groups or in the library. I would love to know how to fix this distraction. Edit: I stopped using the app because of this glitch. Even after the update, my timers are still ending with random noise, even if I turn off the background noise.

Hello, that's unusual. If you're a Pro user, please reinstall the app after manually syncing the data. If you're a free user, please try restarting your phone and see if that helps. Thank you!

UPDATED 4/25/24: I really liked this app but it doesn't work anymore. In spite of controlling my Allow List I can still open any app and forest doesn't interfere. Hope they'll fix this. This app is super helpful. And I like that it vibrate without making another noise when the timer is up. Plus, the different tree/plant options are so cute.
