The idea of Forest is great, but there is one major flaw. Even though I fully turned on the setting that would allow the app to stop me from using other apps, it didn't work. I was tempted to scroll social media and play games instead of focus, and the app let me do that. Despite me not focusing, my tree grew fine and the data at the end of the timer showed nothing. I really hope this gets fixed because it would work great for me without the mistake.

Hi, sorry about this. Sounds like Forest app has been removed from the background by your device system, and apps can't function properly when closed! Please refer to this article and configure your device settings: If the problem persists, feel free to email us at Thanks!

[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! 😊

Hi, I'm a forest pro member and I had started a tree and had to pause because I realized I needed to get a few things ready. I decided not to delete it and saw an option, I thought, was to show why that was in my forest. Instead it was "Because you gave up". Pretty rude and a little childish considering the lack of options to pause. Edit: I have since discovered how to edit the messages, so I'll add another star seeing as I really do enjoy this app. Still, pausing should be a thing
