The Forest Keeps Your Phone From Being Distracted by Growing a Virtual Garden

Android / iOS: Your phone is a distraction. If you find it difficult to resist the impulse to check notifications, Forest helps balance that impulse with a virtual garden with play.

The app has a very simple basic premise: once you launch the app, you won’t be able to use your phone for 30 minutes. In these 30 minutes, a small tree will grow. He will stay healthy and prosperous as long as you don’t use your phone. However, as soon as you close the app to check your email or browse Facebook, the tree will die. You can grow more trees throughout the day, each representing a 30 minute period during which you stay focused. By the end of the day, you will have a productive forest. It’s not much, but a small reward can help motivate you enough to keep working.
