Great, but one big flaw. I love this app and its great for productivity, but I work off my tablet with a keyboard, meaning I put it in landscape mode. Unfortunately, this app is only in upright mode, so any time I have to set a timer or adjust my settings/tree selection, it defaults into that mode and I have to either turn my head or adjust my whole tablet. Please, if it's at all possible, I would LOVE to have this work in landscape mode and change my review to 5/5.

Everything used to work great, but I think in their new update, they have added a new sound each time the countdown is finished, a terrible sound is played which I guess it's a "jungle sound" but it's really more like loud white noise! There is no way to turn it off in the settings. Plz fix this. I'm not using the app as much as I used to, because of it

Hello, sorry to hear about this. If you're using the Pro version, please sync your data manually in Forest Settings and then reinstall the app. If you're using the free version, please write to us: Thank you!

I don't ever rate apps but I really like this one. I have pretty bad ADHD and it makes it hard for me to sit down and study or do homework. I get distracted easily and don't feel like I really accomplish anything. But Forest really helps me stay on track by locking me out of apps and I get to actually see my hard work through my cute little forest. The pro version is definitely worth it (its only like $3) and I love all of the cute trees and flowers. :)
