Remember to Focus

Tools that remind you to focus can reduce distractions and let you get back to business.

Forest - Stay focused

Reduce procrastination and contribute to nature at the same time.

Forest - Stay focused

Set an amount of time to focus within

For procrastinators who like games or the environment.

Procrastination is inevitable. You know you should be focusing on something besides your iOS device, but somehow you end up in the Facebook app yet again. Forest hopes to eliminate that distraction with a timer that can be used in a pomodoro-like way, but with an incentive. As long as the app remains open in the foreground while the timer you set counts down, a virtual tree will grow, and you will be awarded coins. The goal is to grow a tree with each timer you set by not exiting the app and, thus, not getting distracted by your phone. Over time, the virtual trees you grow will make up a virtual forest displayed in the app, and you can compete with friends in doing this as well. Finally, coins you gather by focusing can eventually be used to plant trees in the real world once you collect enough.

Why we love it

This app allows users to use timer-based techniques to focus, and actually provides a solid incentive for staying off of your iOS device.
