I'm a senior in college and I've been using the app for 3 semesters now and I'm OBSESSED. I love how you can actually see a physical representation of your hard work, and the plants are adorable! It really helps me avoid getting distracted by my phone both while studying and doing tasks like cleaning. It doesn't completely drown you with ads either, and the few automatic ones are very short. Overall great user experience, the devs did a fantastic job!

Changes my mindset about focus. I somehow switch to focus work much more easily when I think "I'm going to plant a tree now" (positive) instead of "I'm should stop doing this distracting thing" (negative). I paid a little extra for pro so I can set an allow list with apps I need for work - worth it. Unfortunately a known bug I reported months ago is not fixed (ringtone sounds when a session completes). I'd like to use this for bedtime, but then it starts making noise at 1am (overriding DND!)

I've been using Forest across multiple devices for a long time. My only gripe right now is that this app doesn't have a landscape mode. I use a tablet and keyboard in class and when I teach, but the Forest app doesn't rotate and becomes hard to use in those contexts.
