-1 It's messed up that we have to buy the app again if we switch from iphone to Android and vice-versa. Especially since after I purchase the app, you can just sync the previous account. If you can sync the previous account anyway, why not just do that from the start instead of making us pay for it twice? It's upsetting. However, I do love the concept of the app, so it still gets a 4. I hope others are aware, though, before they make the purchase.

I actually really like this app but today I was trying to test the screen reader for a work thing and the forest app wouldn't let me! Then I couldn't go back to the app to stop the tree because it was stuck. I ended up figuring it out but I really do think any accessibility features need to automatically be exempt from the app just like talk and text.

Hi, most system apps are allowed during planting. If you upgrade to the Pro version, you'll get access to the Allow List feature which allows you to use apps that you've selected during planting sessions. We hope you consider. Thank you!

My favorite study tool! It's really helpful to set the timer and just focus on my work until I get the notification that my tree finished growing. That way, I make sure to include breaks while still keeping on task when I'm working. Plus, it's motivating to visually see my forest grow after having worked a lot. The trees and plants you can get are so cute too!
