This app markets itself as "the best cure for phone addiction" and that is pretty accurate. I can still text if I need to, but "phlubbing" about on instagram means my tree stops growing and dies. It is surprisingly satisfying to see how many trees you grow in a day. I like that you can tailor the amount of time to fit yourself and your needs; it has definitely helped me focus on school work and get more done.
Fantastic app, I'm studying for my GCSE's at the moments and by using this it enables me to stay focused and I recommend you to use it, it gives me a clear incentive that I thrive to achieve. There is no chance for procrastination using it, making it very difficult to stop working. The timer allows you to keep going and to make sure you get an extra task done... 5/5
I love this app! I have OCD which makes phone addiction quite hard to contend with, and this app is the only thing I've found which actually works to help it! The trees are beautiful, the gamified elements are very well designed, and creating your daily forest is very satisfying. In short, this app will make you happier!
great app, but recently theres been a bug where when I turn off my phone (without exiting the app) it notified me to return to the app or else my tree would die. I turned my phone back on several times, and my tree was still alive. Now I ignored the message, thinking my tree would be fine. I checked occasionally, making sure it was still there. But at the end of my 25 minute timer, my tree died. Please fix these bugs, I enjoy this app
Great idea.. but does not treat use of chrome or youtube as phone addiction. Thus, I can continue wasting my time on YouTube while the tree grows. Considering your reply, I have checked all the permissions that the app needs and have enabled each one of them. It doesn't help in any way though. It works for all the installed apps but does not block the use of any of the pre-installed apps.
I think this app is brilliant as it is such a simple idea but somehow manages to keep me on task (I am usually very easily distracted)! One small issue I seem to be having is that I can't set a 5 minute timer? The minimum is 10 minutes. Without this small annoyance, the app would be worth 5 stars in my opinion!
