[Edit to add: I'm lowering my rating because the devs have stopped adding new species. ☹️] I've used this app for over 3 years to help me put down my phone & focus. At first it was great but after I aquired all of the interesting trees it got boring & I no longer feel motivated to use it. I've given it a lot of thought & think the app needs the ability to do things like design trails, add streams & waterfalls, etc like an actual forest. It also needs more well designed, detailed tree species.

Hi, thank you for supporting Forest. Since adding new tree species requires careful consideration and design, it usually takes a long time for us to release one. But we'll continue to release more tree species in the future. If you have any ideas, please feel free to let us know by emailing us at Thank you! 😊

Love this app! I use it in conjunction with a physical timer, that one is more for the alarm aspect, this one really helps me not get distracted by social media. It's easy to select which apps you want to allow use, though selecting the system ones can be really tedious because of all the different system functions for one action. But, it's not a deal breaker. Would recommend to anyone looking for a satisfying reward to not letting your phone distract you while you're trying to focus.

This app has really helped to improve my focus while working, bc it's encouraging to know that I'm growing a forest, while using my time intentionally! The rain ambiance is very nice as well, and overall I celebrate small wins when I see how much time I've focused on my tasks. There are some parts of the app that are a bit confusing for me and I wish it were a bit more detailed in usage. Overall the app is useful and the Tiny Tan ver. is so cute! 💜💜💜
