The mechanics of Forest are pretty simple. First, select a timer between 10 to 120 minutes. As the timer runs, your tree would grow. When the timer ends, your tree(s) will be added to your garden. However, there’s a catch. If you unlock your phone before the timer ends, your tree dies. This dead tree will also be added to your garden and you must spend about 60 coins to delete that record. You are able to view your garden and statistics in the app as well. Also, you are able to plant a real tree in life for 2500 coins! How cool is that?

What I Like About The App

  1. It has a minimalistic design
  2. It’s simple to use
  3. The plants in the app look absolutely beautiful!
  4. It provides additional motivation to stay focused
  5. You can save the world by planting a real tree for 2500 coins!

How It Benefits Our Lives

In the present world, staying focused has never been harder. With technology everywhere, it is easy to be distracted by our devices and surroundings. In fact, our mobile phones are major sources of distraction. One notification is enough to draw our attentions away. Forest is a solution to this problem. By using positive and negative reinforcement, focusing becomes easier and we are able to focus on our tasks at hand. Seeing the trees you have planted in your garden also provides a sense of satisfaction and joy.

Conclusion

We all need a break from technology and Forest does just that. In fact, this app is so powerful that I recommend it to all students and working adults.
