I really enjoy this app, it's been quite helpful. However, though it counts the time you exceed the preset goal you don't get any extra trees/bushes. This means that I sometimes go over my time focus goal, but only see one lonely tree for my efforts. Good bit of a bummer. Otherwise, love the app.
Loving this app, but frustrated that calls/texts, even phone alarms, make your trees die, even if you ignore them! Please fix! Right now, it feels like the app is punishing me for actually staying focused. However, this really IS a great app apart from this issue: with an adjustable timer, ability to label your sessions to see how much time your dedicating to things, the free nature soundtrack (great for reading), and just an overall interesting way to incentivize spending less time on the phone. Right now, it is more of a game to me (trying to see how many trees I can grow), but with as much time I'm away from my phone now, I really have started to get more done. I'm also really interested in the "plant a real tree" initiative.
Great app until it wouldn't let me sign in anymore. Changed my password a few times and nothing. I emailed them and they responded once, asking if I had changed my password which I did, and then never replied again. Very disappointing seeing as I grew so many trees and can't use the coins to actually contribute.
I really love this idea, and I want to love the app! Unfortunately, it will wither my tree because I got a text message alert. The app isn't supposed to punish you for having distractions, it is supposed to punish you for succumbing to those distractions!!! If this mistake gets fixed, I will rate Forest at 5 stars.
I stopped using this app a while ago. Then I recently realized I'm now less focused and less productive. So now I am downloading it again and buying the paid version! I can't wait!
This app has helped me stay focused and get 100% on my recent online college exams. I seriously cannot find any other app in the play store that's comparable to this one. I have planted many trees and will be looking forward to planting a REAL tree through the app in the near future.
