I think to make this app more addictive, it needs a daily target system. Users would need to meet their own targets (e.g. planting trees for 2 hours a day, or 10 hours a week). It would motivate users to keep the app open, because otherwise they wouldn't meet the targets! You could get extra coins for doing so, maybe. It would help me feel the need to use the app more. Also, it would help if you added a circle timer/clock timer around the tree (a line shaped like a circle that grows shorter until the time runs out). It makes the time remaining look more visual, so I could manage time more easily. Otherwise, 5 stars!
Great application. No big complaints. However, it would be nice to choose a plant easily instead of going through all of the plants including the ones that aren't purchased. And, is there anyway for the tree to not wither by receiving a message? I leave my phone on and when I get a message it dies, given the fact that I do not look at my notifications. I had to add Whatsapp to my "Whitelist" to keep the tree alive. Other than that, I love this application. Keeps me focus and productive.
This app is helping me so much to focus. It's not so much about keeping away from my phone as much as telling myself to focus a certain amount time and getting a reward. I love the fact that I can tell it to keep my screen on so I can see the timer and the recently added nature sound. I just have one idea: a widget so that when I wake up in the morning and see my home screen I can be inspired and motivated to use the app. Or possibly a daily reminder to start getting to work. Overall this app is very helpful to me as someone with lots of trouble concentrating!
Just this week alone, I have focused probably more than I ever have with this app. This app is truly a life saver for those who just can't put their phone down for a few seconds and really take in what's around them. Seeing everyone glued to their smartphones, I love the idea behind the app. Being able to earn a currency to buy new trees gives me even more of a reason to plant and focus. Adding tags is also nice; being able to look back at what I did in the week can be very rewarding and fulfilling. As a bonus (with payment of course), it's an even greater feeling knowing that the trees you grow actually help the world out, I love that added support. Speaking of which... I'm writing this review instead of focusing!! Keep 'em growing!
Works perfectly! It's a gentle carrot and stick approach that actually works. Having your productive time visualized as a tiny forest really helps you track whether you are doing the necessary amounts of work each day. I didn't realize how much I procastinated till I used this app. Keep up the good work Devs.
I absolutely LOVE this idea, but it doesn't work on my phone :(. I have a Samsung Galaxy 5, and I can click the home button and use any apps I want while the Forest app is running, without killing my tree. Developer, is there any way to fix this? I desperately want to be able to use this app. Please help!
