Comments and Ratings for Forest: Stay focused, be present

Great for study! (3.23)
17/01/2017 12:35:00 5/5 By icarrus0156
This is the only thing that will motivate me to study, previously I've tried to study with my phone, but I just end up going on the internet. Now I can really focus and get work done, while remembering what I've actually written! The system of buying trees is quite difficult to achieve though, I've used this for a while now and I'm still a while away from getting a new tree 😭

Brilliant Idea (3.22)
10/01/2017 21:05:00 5/5 By Jack Hart
This app has made studying much more enjoyable. It neatly splits up my study periods whilst allowing me to have a positive impact on the environment!

Beautiful, wonderful app and perfect for many different things!! (3.22)
10/01/2017 16:42:00 5/5 By iNoddy
This has helped me study, meditate, nap and go out and enjoy the world without going on my phone. 100% an essential especially for tree lovers🌿🌲

Really does work !! (3.21.1)
10/01/2017 09:07:00 5/5 By Bexbogle
Friends now know I'm probably growing a tree if I don't response straight away and that along is saving me hours . Soon as I want to do something I set my timer 45mins is a god length and start my task . It's amazing how many times I go to look at my phone and I think ' on no , don't kill the tree ' Well done !!!

Love it, just one issue (3.21.1)
08/01/2017 18:22:00 4/5 By Panda-Frog
Love this app, great idea however, when my phone is locked and my tree is growing, sometimes opening my phone just takes me to my homepage so I lose any progress :(

Great app (3.21.1)
08/01/2017 09:28:00 5/5 By Christym91
This is app is very effective. It stops you checking your phone, when you didn't even realise you were checking it!

Simple and effective (3.21.1)
08/01/2017 06:18:00 5/5 By bigandyherd
If you can't put your phone down when deep down you know that you really really should, then this app is for you.

Transformational!! (3.21.1)
08/01/2017 03:37:00 5/5 By Gav2520
I've always had a real problem with procrastination. Spending hours and hours on my phone scrolling through social media. This has changed everything. Plant a tree, develop an emotional attachment to the tree by giving it a name, and you won't go back on your phone until it's planted. Then spend that time getting things done.

Good but More points should be rewarded (3.21.1)
08/01/2017 00:43:00 3/5 By Laaaaaalaaa124
I think the number of points you get for each time you relax is too low and I think the number for unblocking is too high

Simple & efficient (3.21.1)
07/01/2017 15:25:00 5/5 By Hanne Stawarz
I've had this app for several months and have consistently found it helpful for preventing procrastination, particularly when studying. I'm really happy the developers added more tree species and achievements in the recent update as it's very motivating. I also love the seasonal updates! Overall really happy with this productivity app and would recommend it to anyone looking for more focus! 🙌🏻🌲✨

literally the best ™ (3.21.1)
07/01/2017 04:21:00 5/5 By LockieCS
i would be so so behind on revision without this app. definitely the best money i've ever spent, it's probably my most used app now. a must have for any student who finds it difficult to focus and revise without constantly going on their phone.

Nice app. (3.21.1)
06/01/2017 14:09:00 5/5 By Jacs2570
Just got this yesterday on a friends recommendation. I do 'tomatoes' anyway so this is a nice change, love the functionality and motivation of growing trees. I really want enough worktime coins to unlock a different tree, so I am remembering to track and sticking to time better than usual. You can customise the work and break duration as you go. Nice app.

So helpful to stay focused - I'm hooked! (3.21.1)
05/01/2017 23:51:00 5/5 By CaitlinRemy
So useful for staying focused and actually seeing the progress you've made. Giving points also gives you something to work towards. Awesome.

So far so good (3.21.1)
04/01/2017 10:21:00 4/5 By Kevmister24
So far so good, but I want more features, like some more interaction with the forest.

Great app (3.21.1)
03/01/2017 10:31:00 5/5 By RevisingForSociologyRN
Beyond helpful. I have never been so productive

Good but not perfect (3.21.1)
03/01/2017 09:33:00 4/5 By Powderpuff9021013453358654
I love this app, as I'm studying for exams it really helps me to concentrate and stop looking at my phone, however the features are quite basic and the coins you receive don't add up to much and to buy new things costs more and more every time

Really good for revision (3.21.1)
03/01/2017 08:24:00 5/5 By RaeRaeReyRey
Helps you to do short bursts of really focused work and I've found I get a lot more done now I'm not as distracted. Really helpful to be able to see how much your friends are doing too as it spurs you on to do more

Great App To Avoid Procrastination! (3.21.1)
02/01/2017 09:34:00 5/5 By Master of Peace
This app has been a great help in allowing me to get things done, from schoolwork to exercise. Rewarding and motivating it's 100% worth the small price. Love the feature that allows you to plant real trees! 🌲🌲🌲

01/01/2017 15:58:00 5/5 By Dhope17
I am an A level student and I always find a different way to procrastinate. But I am also a perfectionist. When I go the app I wasn't expecting much but the dead tree you see when your off task makes you think no I don't want my app to look tacky 😂. I love the app and I love how for each tree you can add a note. I LOVE THIS APP

Absolutely Essential!!! (3.21.1)
31/12/2016 15:59:00 5/5 By DaisyDoddle
I've never been so focussed on studying and efficient at managing my revision time! My studying time now has structure and I can keep track of how much time I've spent doing work. I love seeing how much time I spend each day doing something productive. And obviously, it stops me from getting distracted and switching to other apps. Don't know how I've got this far without it!

Great, helpful app (3.21.1)
30/12/2016 06:55:00 5/5 By fifixandxlola
This app is brilliant for keeping yourself on track with your revision and study time and as an A Level student, very little is more important. Offers a lovely, simple reward after staying focussed and really does trigger you to want to do more, and eventually allows you to plant a real tree for the planet after collecting coins from virtual trees you grow. A win-win app and very cheap for what it offers. Definitely a must have 🌲😊

Very helpful (3.21.1)
30/12/2016 00:34:00 5/5 By ZumbaIzzy
I've used this every day since I bought it. At night I love the different background noises, they help me go to sleep. In the daytime it really helps me to get things done!

Brilliant! (3.21.1)
29/12/2016 12:48:00 5/5 By Katieisonfirex
This app has really helped me concentrate when I do work!

The only reason I got into Uni!! (3.21.1)
28/12/2016 10:52:00 5/5 By LouTommoBraces
Helped me so so much with my A-level exams, it's a nice little reward after focusing in the form of a tree. I also like how you can still listen to music while this app is working, as long as you don't go to change the album (you can still skip a song). Highly highly recommend!

Boring need more options (3.21.1)
28/12/2016 10:41:00 1/5 By R0bust
I've tried to use this app but I just kill all the trees, as it gives me no push to stop using my phone. What it really needs is a whole forest you can keep adding to not just a patch of land each day. Would also be cool if you could move the trees around.

Great App to defeat procrastination, just a few bugs (3.21.1)
28/12/2016 03:30:00 3/5 By stevenalexbaird
This is app is fantastic to defeat procrastination, and the reward you get is great, and it's great to tag what you were doing and see what you've worked on and what you need to do more of. A couple of nice things to improve would be for the rain sound to carry on even though the timer is up. Also, I have this app on my iPhone, iPad and Google chrome extension, and it would be great if with one button it all syncs up, rather than saying I've done 180 minutes of focus when I've only done 60. The Be focused pro app does this perfectly. Overall though a fantastic app with a lot of potential!

Actually a 5 only gave it a 2 for the humour (3.21.1)
27/12/2016 12:21:00 2/5 By Jocmpbll

I love this app! (3.21.1)
24/12/2016 05:13:00 5/5 By Bethany bookworm
Thanks to this app I have been able to concentrate so much on my work and revision! It's amazing and worth the buy, I don't think I would be revising and getting better grades right now if it wasn't for this app 😌 I would love to see more trees on the market, but all the ones that are there right now are so cool and I love how they change the more time you spend revising! Thank you so much for this! (((please put some new trees on there, I'm running out of ones to buy!!)))

I'd fail without this app! (3.21.1)
24/12/2016 04:44:00 5/5 By gamerloi
A must-have for procrastinators (yes, you're one too)

Better than the rest because of its features (3.21.1)
22/12/2016 05:52:00 4/5 By Matabata
I have tried several apps for productivity and this one simply stands out. You can choose for how long you want to concentrate, it lets you annotate your activity and put it under different categories. It is also easy to go back and see how much time you spent on this or that. Not really using sounds but I guess they are useful for some. Smooth, nice design and you can actually plant trees for real. Good stuff.
