“Have you ever been addicted to your phone and just cannot put it down? Forest provides an interesting solution to beat your phone addiction. You can plant a seed in Forest. In the following time, this seed will gradually grow into a tree. However, if you cannot resist the temptation and leave this app to check Facebook or play a game, your tree will wither away. With this interesting mechanism, the sense of achievement and responsibility will drive our users to stay away from their phone with no pain.” About Forest App
Today, try out Forest and tell us if it helped you stay focused. We thought this offers an interesting perspective to stop unskilful habit, offering a pleasant and nature related activity to be rewarded by as you focus on what matters. We love the thinly veiled threat: leave the app and you will kill the tree! Well, not a real tree but is the idea enough to keep you off social media doing some deep work?
