Forest is a free app that allows you to increase your productivity by stopping you from using other apps on your mobile for the duration of your working time. To use the app, you simply open it up and select a time frame, then plant a tree. Your tree will grow and if you use any other apps during this time then it will die.
In this way, you’re incentivized not to use other apps or games and instead to focus on the task at hand. Forest is a great way to put your phone down.
What’s more, the more trees that you grow, the more points you get, which you can later spend on planting real trees! Forest works with environmental organizations to help protects the world’s rainforests. Try it out today for free.
