⚠️ They Track YouThey track you across apps and the web. Do you really trust a company that does that? See the App Privacy section of their App Store page for details..Version: 4.31.2

Please focus on developing software itselfWe aim to use this software to track study time not seeing unrelated pop up messages when we open the software. SO PLEASE FOCUS ON THE BASIC FEATURES. I DONT WANNA SEE ANY IDOL RELATED THINGS THERE! They are too extra and make no sense. Btw, if your marketing team consider the portion of new target customers and their phone usage preferences? Is their portion large enough for you to ignore existing customers’ expectations on maintaining/developing good features? Is your product a good fit with them? It was a good product and I had a general good experience using it..Version: 4.54.4

Planting Real Trees?The only reason why I don’t rate this app 5 stars is because, it takes a long, long time to get the 2,500 coins in order to plant a real tree. I’ve had the app for quite some time and have only planted one real tree from the app. And also the fact that certain ‘virtual’ trees cost 500 coins, and therefore I’d rather not buy the virtual trees because it takes so long to even get 500 coins, let alone another 2000 to plant a real tree. I would suggest that there be two different currencies/points, so coins go towards buying virtual trees, and diamonds or something go towards planting real trees, so that you’re able to both have the fun of having a decorative forest as well as the main reason of the app, for doing your bit to plant trees. And hopefully as well get double points for working an extra hour or something, make it more exciting and be able to earn coins easier. Thanks.Version: 4.33.1

UselessOnly works if you actually close the app, you can still do everything on your phone..Version: 4.52.2

Save your moneyVery frustrating to pay £2 and have only 3 options of trees to choose from, coins take forever to earn even after lots of hours of using the app, so feel I’ve been a bit robbed. Good app in theory but poorly done, seems like a bit of a money grabber when it is supposedly for a good cause as it takes forever to earn enough coins to get anything out of the app and takes hours of your time. Considering there are now search engines that you can get for free that will plant trees for you, it is frustrating how much you would need to pay to get anything done in this game. When purchasing it looked really good, but after using for a few sessions realised it was not worth the money at all. Should be getting a lot more for what you’re paying, if it was free I’d understand payment for more options but almost feels cheeky asking for more money after your get sod all for £2.Version: 4.30.1

Only so-so.The method is sound, we all know that our phones are distracting and by locking us away from using them it can encourage good focus and help us to complete tasks while being visually rewarded with a forest. My issue is that there is unlockable content but focusing for 2 hours only earns 40 coins, the content starts off at 500 coins (20 hours of focus) but each time you use your coins the price of the next unlock increases by 100 coins. They say to utilise ‘achievements’ to get more coins but a large number of them involve connecting with friends, which is plain stupid since it’s just penalising anyone who is focusing alone, I don’t expect all my friends to pay £2 so I can connect with them! You can pay money to triple the rewards of focusing for a few days but this just makes the developers seem greedy since it’s a paid app and once the content is developed it should only require a one off purchase. Really discouraging..Version: 4.8.7

An excellent conceptI have problems focussing and this app is definitely an excellent reminder clock. I would rather pay AUD$5.99 or the like to unlock all the trees, bushes and sounds. It seems it would take a large amount of usage and consistently paying for elixir to unlock the ones I want. While I understand this is a good way to build a habit, the developers clearly don’t understand common game mechanics. I’m a lot less likely to stick with using this app if the quickest way to setup the study environment I desire (tree and sounds I want) involves paying over and over for elixir only to have the silly price increase after each purchase! Try looking into Logarithmic Curves for reward systems instead of constantly making us pay over and over (food for thought)..Version: 4.4.1

A little ‘harsh?’So the app is quite cool and all, but what bothers me is the messages. While the timer is running, it will display messages like ‘Get back to work!’ , ‘Put down your phone!’ And so on. This app is so cute and kinda relaxing so I just find these a little harsh? Not a reason to not get the app though, just something that they could maybe work on :).Version: 4.19.0

Don’t care about the appI don’t care.Version: 4.10.6

Changed the app on an update- now totally uselessI’ve sadly had to change my rating. This app WAS amazing, so helpful at keeping me focused for uni study and not looking at social media. However, NOW it’s basically useless. They have updated the app so that now, when you exit the app, nothing happens. Your tree doesn’t die, you can use whatever other apps you want. They say it wasn’t working on iOS, yet I never had an issue before. Now, you need to turn on “deep focus” mode in order for it to work as it did before. This requires a passcode (no idea why you’d need that) so if you don’t want one or can’t use one (which I can not), too bad. Totally changed the app, no longer what was signed up for..Version: 4.10.3

Love the iPhone app but the watch app isn't workingWhen I open the watch app (watch series 3 and iPhone xs with all latest updates) you see the Forest grid and when I tap on that it just says "start planting today!". But there's no way to start planting on the watch app (without going to the phone to start). Which kind of makes the watch app of minimal if any use if you have to have the phone right there to start it? The whole point of the series 3 and 4 Apple watches is that they can be used independently of the phone. If I'm getting it wrong or misunderstanding how it works then I'm happy to change the review. Otherwise maybe replace "start planting today" with "open the app on your phone to start planting"? One tip if possible for the phone app is to allow a whitelist of apps. One of the tasks I do is reading and use Kindle on my phone for that. However the app kills the tree everytime I do that task. However I understand if the limitations of ios means that you can't whitelist..Version: 4.4.1

Amazing except for 2 thingsThis is a really good app for those of us with bad habits of picking up our phones and mindlessly and needlessly distracting ourselves. It feels great to see all the trees you've planted through your focused time. Two things that would really make the app even better: 1) it's too difficult to get coins. When new plants/trees can cost over 1000 coins (even 2000 coons) and you get less than half a coin per minute of focus time, it can feel way too difficult to unlock new plants for your forest. 1) emergency button of some sort - it would be great to have an option to have some kind of emergency "need to exit the app for this one tiny thing without killing my trees" button, even better if it's a kind of timed feature, like you have 1 minute to do whatever you need to do before your plant dies. I started planting some trees for a 2 hour session before realising that I needed to look at my notes app because I couldn't remember a password. I had no choice but to leave the app because I needed the password otherwise I couldn't connect to wifi and get on with my work. Unfortunately it cost me 4 dead trees. It was disappointing because I did actually focus for the time period, but just needed to pop out of the app quickly to get this password..Version: 4.47.1

Not for meI feel like this is a concentration tracking app more than a productivity app. You plant a tree for every task you wish to concentrate on and if you break your focus (leave the app) the tree will wither. The problem here is that I need to concentrate on work, to work I need to use my phone. This app allows you to create a white list of apps that are required for your task, however this feature is not available in IOS devices. This renders the app to be nothing more than a tea timer and a graph depicting how many times you set the tea timer. You are allowed to create your own tags, but you can’t assign a task to your session until after the session is over, this means that if you read a book 7 days in a row you plant 7 trees instead of continue to water the same tree to keep it alive. I only bought this to be a visualization of my consistency with the various aspects of my life, but the app doesn’t work this way. I don’t see why this app isn’t free with ads considering that one of its most important features does not work on iPhones..Version: 4.10.6

Brilliant app but full of botsI love using this app to help me with my reading, I use to always get distracted by my phone when reading but since using this app it helps me stick to reading more than playing on my phone. This app would be 5 stars but the biggest issue is the obvious bots that are on the leaderboard. According to the leaderboard there are people using this app constantly every second of every day, there are achievements to be in the top 100,50 and 10 of the global leaderboard, could be achieved with dedication if it wasn’t for bots that are using the app 168 hours a week what would be impossible for anyone a human to do. This is saying that around 10 people are not sleeping, eating or doing anything else except using This app, over 100 people possibly into the thousands are using this app all day every day. Very unfair and the developers need to sort this to make it more fair or add something to help people achieve the achievements, I wouldn’t normally bother with the achievements but with the fact that using this app enough will help grow real trees what I support then they should definitely fix this as soon as possible.Version: 4.49.0

Comprei só para Watch, mas não serve!É uma pena! Um ótimo app mas que não tem controle de começo ou parada de foco no relógio. Ou seja, não temos controle dele no relógio. Só visualizar o quanto fez! E nem avisa no Watch quando acabou! Realmente uma pena! Vou ter que usar outro app, mesmo tendo comprado este! Se tiverem mais opções de controle pelo Apple Watch, com certeza vale 5 estrelas!.Version: 4.52.2

Motivating!Good use of technology!.Version: 4.51.3

Tiny tan not availableI bought this app especially for the Tiny Tans characters but I have no options to buy them..Version: 4.54.1

AggravatingThe app is a great idea, and has a really cute premise. After a few hours with it, though, I had to uninstall it. It wasn’t worth the aggravation. The problem is it isn’t sophisticated enough to differentiate between work and recreation. If I suddenly remember I need to reschedule a meeting in the calendar app, I should be able to do that without killing my tree. This might be an OS limitation, but if so they could have found some way around it, through different mechanics. There’s no way to pause cycles. If you need to have a messenger conversation about plans later that day, your tree is dying, no way around it. There might be some way using the in-game currency, but it shouldn’t need that. Why is there even a currency system for a pomodoro timer?? I get that companies like making money by selling you ephemeral nonsense, but they charge for the basic things you’d use the app for. Its messaging is also really harsh. “Go back to forest immediately!” is pushed when you change apps. While in the app, it says things like “stop looking at me!”. And yet it’s hard not to look at it, as things keep changing/moving onscreen. By killing the tree and leaving its corpse in your field, they punish you for failing. I’d rather you just lost progress and had to restart planting that tree. I wish they focused more on positive reinforcement and less on punishment. I feel like they put a lot of effort into the aesthetics, making it cute and pretty, but not enough into user research and usability. I’d give it a 1-star in terms of how well it accomplishes its goal. There are better pomodoro apps. But it is very pretty and there’s something soothing about seeing a field full of trees. It has the skeleton of a great app, but it’s not fleshed out..Version: 4.6.5

Beautiful yet more to improveThe app is simple and nicely designed the plants are so cute, creative and relevant. The rainforest and bird sounds inbuilt in the app is one of my favourite sounds by far. There needs to be more ways to attain new trees for free as it is taking forever to reach the amount to buy a different one. Another issue I’ve encountered when studying with friends is that I have to start a new room every single time my session is finished. It’s so bothersome to send an invite room every 25-30 minutes. There is no way to continue the session after the break. The only option is to disband the room..Version: 4.30.1
