The genius of this app is it's simplicity. The apps works by encouraging not using your phone versus locking you out of your phone or apps. The incentive is little trees you grow by twenty-five minutes of no phone use at a time. If you give up during that, you get a withered tree instead on your plot of forest. It's making staying off your phone a game. I've just been using the free version. The paid version is very cheap and a one time purchase. I'm considering that as well.

I've never been able to study or do my homework because of my adhd, which I get easily distracted with, but with this I'm able to focus and occasionally look at the screen to see my tree has grown, its amazing and really rewarding. If you leave the app and give up your trees wither but if it gives you a warning and you go back then they keep growing which is pretty cool. Its an amazing app to use, I highly recommend it, and no, this isn't a fake review :) love this app <3

I love this app so much, it helps me stay focused and is cute and visually appealing. I had one problem. The trees that you grow change their looks the longer u can stay focused. But it's like it requires u to stay focused the whole 120 minutes before u can grow your tree to it's full capacity. Considering this is listed as a pomodoro app I'd have thought that you can add breaks every 25 minutes. It's really sad and dettering. I wish it had breaks u can adjust it to.
