Flora - Green Focus
Flora is a new way to stay off your phone, clear to-do lists, and build positive, life-changing habits. Whenever you want to make progress towards your goals, plant a seed in Flora. As you work hard, the seed will grow into a healthy tree. Let the tree be your coach and grow yourself with it. You will be amazed by how great you can be. FOCUS TREES Have trouble putting down the phone? Flora blocks distracting apps in a pleasant way to help you focus on what’s more important in real life. If you cannot resist the temptation of using your phone and leave the app while growing a tree, the tree will be killed! But if succeeding, you'll unlock new trees. DOUBLE EFFICIENCY WITH FRIENDS Things get even more interesting when you challenge your friends to plant trees together—you will see who kills a tree (ouch). However, if you successfully stay away from your phones together, each of you will win an additional tree from a random friend. You can also chat and share your progress to motivate each other and keep everyone on track.* * Flora is the original app for multi-user tree planting and delivers the best features that help you and your friends be productive. TO-DO LIST & WIDGET Flora is a to-do list, and more. Simply create a to-do item and set a reminder, then you will never forget a thing. Even better, you can tag your trees with a to-do item to easily track the progress towards each of your life goals. No matter if your goal is daily, weekly, or monthly, Flora will help you follow it through and achieve it. HABIT TRACKER Enjoy a rewarding daily habit routine. If you grow trees regularly, you will earn yourself a beautiful, vibrant garden. Take a look at it and feel proud of yourself! Each tree records your perseverance and a step towards a healthy life. You can also view the daily, weekly, or monthly statistics of your activities in Flora to find opportunities to improve your time-management and planning skills. REAL TREES, REAL IMPACT Why not plant REAL trees while improving yourself? Flora proudly offers the opt-in Price and Care services that let you plant real trees on the earth if you kill or successfully grow a tree in the app. We partner with tree-planting organizations in Africa and East Asia, such as the, to plant fast-growing soil rebuilding trees, fruit trees that diversify incomes and nutrition, and trees that can provide forage and fuel-wood. All these trees help make the earth greener and provide long-term financial aid to families who need it most. Sounds good? Download Flora and join our 2,000,000+ productive users now!
Nice app
by Lainey Natierra on 2021/06/11 02:50
This is a nice app! I’ve been having trouble staying focused but this app encourages me to stay on task especially when it comes to writing my thesis. I like how there’s the positive reinforcement using the concept of growing little plants the more I use it to stay on task and that there is an option to bet against myself if I notice I am not staying focused. I do wish I could sign in to my account on multiple devices without having to sign out from another device.
Very creative!
by 007owner on 2021/06/11 01:42
Super cool way to encourage less phone usage. Highly recommend!
Anything better to do ?
by Kampfos on 2021/06/11 00:23
I love this app simply because it allows you to do a task and not get distracted. The idea of the you killing a tree does guilt you into focusing which is smart as it makes you work and keep your eye on the ball. I love that it challenges me to be a better version of myself and learn to focus on a task at hand while making the world a better place for the future.
by Mimi Fedor on 2021/06/10 19:03
I’m the type of person who needs someone to make them study in order to actually do it, and flora really really helps me with that. Not only does it make me study, it makes me actually excited to see my progress. Its very simple and easy to use, and that’s all I really have to say!
by crosby🥰 on 2021/06/10 15:32
I read much easier thanks to this app!! It makes me so happy to see my tree growing!! ALSO THE ART IS SO CUTE!! 🥰🥰
by LMBlaze on 2021/06/08 00:52
Flora is so cool and helpful!
Good app, but some suggestions
by jasren1925 on 2021/06/07 22:53
1. It would be cool if we could customize the quotes that come up during the session and put our own 2. It would be cool if we could customize the sound byte that happens at the end of the session
Easy to Use!
by KT Culbre on 2021/06/07 19:03
Enjoying putting Flora on in the background of my day. I’m happy knowing I’m donating just a bit to plant trees!
Love the idea of the app
by meiennnnnn on 2021/06/07 02:52
I really think about the premium can let people plant trees remotely is just dope
Great App!!
by JessicaJoy2100 on 2021/06/07 01:43
My productivity has greatly increased since having this app!
by kyyleeee on 2021/06/06 23:39
Helps me get my stuff done and i love the aesthetic! Easy to figure out too
Flora rocks!
by Ze izzy on 2021/06/06 20:22
I have been using flora for about two years now and it helps me to focus and stay off of my phone. I also purchased the add on where every 24 hours logged I plant a real tree! It gives me motive to keep using the app. I also bought the Amazon rainforest pack and am looking forward for new packs to come out!
So cute app

Best app for studying
by liljmless on 2021/06/05 18:18
It gives me a great motivation to study, I love it so much. And it’s so amazing that you can study with your friends too
by Abcdaaaqw on 2021/06/05 03:07
1.如果可以选择到时间只要不按停就继续计时会更好 2.结束提示音太小经常错过 3.种植物是不是也可以换成养动物、孵蛋?
Great study app!
by sseymens on 2021/06/03 20:54
I’ve tried lots of apps with a similar purpose but this is by far the best. Easy to use, highly informative, and beautiful graphics.
Love it
by StephanieA31 on 2021/06/03 13:04
I just got this app and so far I love it. Before I would never get off my phone to work or study but now with this app I can stay off. With the planting of trees it helped me stay focused since I do not want to kill my tree.
by Lollaa2120 on 2021/06/02 19:58

I love this app
by rafidX on 2021/06/01 19:25
Great app👍
by TSudul on 2021/05/31 19:01
Love this app, helps me concentrate more and stay off my phone. I have really bad attention problems. If I pause it for something I’m quickly prompted to return to my task in order to continue doing what I was doing. I just wish there was an option to deduct or add on minutes once you’ve started planting a tree, because sometimes you don’t know how long a task will take. Also, I’m 2/3 weeks in and I’ve already planted “around the world.” I wish there were endless amount of places to plant in, instead I feel like I’ve completed the “game.” 😔
by KarinaMCarrillo on 2021/05/31 16:53
This app is amazing, it really has helped me to improve my time management skills! I highly recommend!
The focus app
by TheGreenSoul on 2021/05/31 02:12
It is a cute app, it is touching, friendly and effective.
Great Positive Reinforcement
by idfkjsiaic on 2021/05/30 23:50
Would love to know more about the benefits of buying the full version. Follow up about trees planted. . The free version has great design and layout. Only one crash upon connecting to Gmail. Crashes can happen if timer is interupted
Super dope app

I loveee
by halatharissa on 2021/05/29 21:47
Great app for focusing but!
by Nmelendez1 on 2021/05/29 03:18
Its an amazing app for focus however they send too many notifications when you don’t use it for a couples days, when you use it it says a summery like “master of focus” but after one day of not using it you get “zero focus” which in my opinion sounds kinda judgy but besides that it’s great
Best app for focusing
by Rilmadash on 2021/05/29 01:04
I have a hard time focusing, and easily end up scrolling through Instagram and tiktok when needing to get things done. This is a good challenge for me to actually put it down and do what’s most important
Love this!
by claire0915 on 2021/05/28 18:55
This app helps a lot with my productivity. Knowing I’ll kill the tree if I switch apps is a big motivator. And I like seeing all the trees and plants from around the world!
Good but need new trips
by aa_2172a on 2021/05/28 16:35
I finished my trips. No new trips. It seems that I must pay for new trips 🙂
Amazing app
by Peytonsayswoofandwoof on 2021/05/27 22:57
So I’m super addicted to my phone and tiktok and Flora helps a lot for me to get my schoolwork done and study definitely download it
Helpful for focus
by lyd the law student on 2021/05/27 20:43
I am a law student and it is imperative that I spend time reading without distraction. I rely on this app heavily to help with my studying and writing.
So Helpful!
by T!TAN!C🥸🌹🚢🌌 on 2021/05/27 18:42
I have really bad ADHD and a huge love for nature, this app has helped me so much. And I love the pausing option being a busy teenage girl. I mainly use this for school since it’s so easy to get distracted from homework assignments and stuff. I also find it helpful for keeping me off of Pinterest while I straighten up my room and keeping me from texting while I do my devotionals. And the best part is that it’s FREEEEEE!!🥳
This app is amazing!
by Tyuiookjgfdcvb on 2021/05/27 17:31
The layout is really calming and stress reducing. Fun and cute plant themes and a ton of really cool productivity tools im really excited to explore!

Excellent App
by Camila 41934D6E92 on 2021/05/25 14:59
Flora definitely helps me focus. I’m a freelancer working from home, so distractions can really be a problem. Flora makes focusing actually fun.
by puthisgameinaditch on 2021/05/25 04:19
This is a great app it really helps me study and do my work, I’m really happy that it gives you the options for breaks because there needed I wish that it locked ur phone tho because u can just pause it but overall it’s awesome
Good Homework Tool
by Kylannah S. on 2021/05/24 21:45
I have severe ADHD and this app really helps me see what i'm doing with my time and how much im really spending on homework. It also helps me to take breaks between doing homework (especially large chunks of work) instead of getting sidetracked and doing something else because my brain isn't stimulated enough to keep in check with the task. The little trees motivate me. :)
Fun and helpful!
by SUlanski on 2021/05/24 18:13
So far, I really love Flora! It’s interactive and fun while helping me be more intentional about my screen time and avoid those chunks of time I habitually spend on my phone!
One of, if not the, best productivity app I have ever had
by amberelea on 2021/05/24 16:50
This app was the only one out of several productivity apps that finally helped me to get out of procrastination.

Love this! The app had helped me through burnout, I feel that now I have a better system in place taking advantage of the pomodoro technique!
I improve my productivity while planting trees!!!
by Yulia Azriel on 2021/05/23 15:41
This is a brilliant App that helps me stay focused on 1 task at a time. In the world of millions of distractions, emails and notifications, I take on training my mind to stay focused on 1 task at a time. My productivity increased tremendously all while knowing that I’m supporting the most important cause - planting trees and restoring our precious Earth!
One of My Favorites During Exam Season
by TruthTeller1001 on 2021/05/23 14:29
This really really helped me focus throughout the season on my studies and stay off my phone and I really enjoy the friends feature and the variety of plants. I’m really hoping they introduce a feature to organize gardens soon!
Focus with Flora
by HND2013 on 2021/05/22 20:26

by annikazitto on 2021/05/20 19:57
i love using this to keep myself focused on small tasks, having a timer set helps to keep on track but also makes the time you spend working even more focused and efficient:) i really like the betting feature, it makes it harder to ignore the time limit:)

The reason I LOVE flora
by SKEETDUDE on 2021/05/17 13:27
Ok, ok. Everyone has been looking for an app that lets you study and is also very very fun to use. I personally, needed an app that was fun and that I could use for when I am studying. But. The thing is. You have to TRY not to get distracted by Flora. I know it is a very fun app where you can plant trees and add friends, but you have to try not to get carried away with it. BUT!!!! It is a very very fun app to use!
6 starts✌🏽
by bazaart is awsome on 2021/05/16 15:32
This is app is awesome. I would really recommend if you are trying to accomplish goals like me.

Helps with focusing and putting your phone down
by user13587654 on 2021/05/12 16:47
I normally don’t write reviews, but this app has helped me focus on my online classes. Every time I would want to go on my phone, the app would kinda guilt trip me into not going on my phone. Not to mention, it’s environmentally friendly. This app is also pretty aesthetic; it has really nice visuals!
Actually makes me focus!
by Aj1100s on 2021/05/12 03:53
They executed this perfectly.
I’ve written one before and I’ll write one again
by Bdhjt on 2021/05/11 16:06
I’ve reviewed Flora before but I guess my phone forgot, so I’ll write another one! This is a great app. It has helped me get so much done and remain productive while caring for trees. I dig it!
Love it

by ANA A12345678910 on 2021/05/11 03:04
This app really has helped me especially with not picking up my phone and going on Tiktok. I wish it had a little buzz or vibration to let you know when you are done with your timer.
It’s great
by 123school456 on 2021/05/10 17:11
I really like Flora it’s helped me a lot with my productivity rate
Great for focus and well designed
by SRJWHITE on 2021/05/10 17:05
Grand tour feature is great fun. Please keep adding more locations and tree varieties which can be unlocked with milestones. Also please allow multi device support. Flora care is a great idea, but it’s expensive. You can never plant enough trees to recover your cost (actual real tree donation costs 25c each). So half the money paid will never be used to plant a tree. That’s my only concern.
Helps productivity
by marilugop on 2021/05/10 04:44
It keeps me motivated
Keeps me focused
by Lunaokami on 2021/05/09 22:01
I don’t rate things too often, but I felt it deserved a decent rating because it’s definitely helping me keep focused while I get my assignments for school in.
A few small problems, but good free app
by Jace Hanso on 2021/05/08 16:31
Overall a great app! It has a timer to keep you on task, and gives you breaks in between. You can customize how long the work and break times are, which I really like. Also has an option to pay if you want to have real trees planted for every 8, 24 or 48 hours that you focus, but all of the functions are still available if you don’t want to do that! Some of the setting can be a little bit hard to flip between, and the break portion is a little bit glitchy sometimes, as it will end the timer if you try to do anything else in the app. Other than that, super helpful
Love it
by zayahary on 2021/05/08 16:08
Really helps me focus on my studying!
Great app with a great cause attached
by 紫音9 on 2021/05/08 14:42
This app has kept me motivated and improved my focus. I love that I have the motivation of the tour maps and planting real trees to keep me going! Only wish I could use a separate study app while using this app simultaneously. Great! Thanks!
So helpful
by tayjay36 on 2021/05/08 00:36
I can listen to music while I use it, but it keeps me focused and off my phone as a constant reminder to keep going, which is great because I am easily distracted. Very helpful.
Love it

The only thing that can help me stay focus

Love the app so far, remember seeing it on YouTube but never downloading it but a friend had reminded me today and started using it ASAP, and it’s been very intuitive and productive! Will definitely trying to incorporate this into my everyday routine. 💯✨

Studying Better
by ariel.jaq on 2021/05/06 02:50
I haven&#39;t felt focused and responsible at the same time since I attended school in person. I recommend this app!
This app is really inspiring
by Used to be a mad user! on 2021/05/05 21:19
This app helped me focus a lot
super simple, great for focus
by ehmk8 on 2021/05/05 19:32
i love this app for when I need to get off my phone and get focused! super easy to use, all graphics are aesthetic and pleasing to the eye. I have no complaints! Also I love that its for a great cause, it would be cool if there was a live blog that updates about where the actual trees are being planted at least biweekly-weekly-monthly. I’d like to see more accountability to what they claim to do with the revenue that’s made from the app!
So far so good
by Chicnic9 on 2021/05/05 18:58
I’ve had ADHD all my life. I’ve learned to mostly manage it at work and school, but now that I’m working from home I’m needing additional tools to keep me on track. So far this is working, I hope I can keep to it!
by taetaeishot on 2021/05/05 14:50
Love using it so far! It’s useful and simple and has worked well for me :) trying to get my friends to download it as well hahA
Super fun!
by princess_penny-bags on 2021/05/05 12:39
Apart from the aesthetic graphics this app will definetly make you feel good about studying! Wish they could let the tree grow even if your phone is off, that would def save some battery lol. That’s my only suggestions though the app is great.
Great Overall App
by eshermz on 2018/09/25 09:38
I started using Flora in the middle of August at the beginning of my senior year of college, and apparently, I’ve studied/stayed focused for over 100 hours! Which is great because I was recently diagnosed w/ severe ADHD. This app has been such a useful tool in helping me actually put my phone down and focus on my schoolwork. Not only that, but seeing exactly where my time goes when I do study via the convenient “tags” feature helps me to efficiently plan out my days so I know exactly how much time I need to spend on which subject. However, my only questions/concerns are a.) can you only have 6 tags? I’ve tried to make more, but I can’t find a way to create a new tag or even delete old ones. Even just adding a section about this to the FAQs would be really helpful; b.) sometimes I’ll set a timer, and since Flora has gotten me used to not checking my phone for 1+ hour(s) at a time, I’ll go back an hour or so later to check how much time I have left to find that the app reset, and all that progress I made was lost! This can be very frustrating especially when I’m specifically trying to study a certain amount of hours per day. Other than that, great app; thanks to the developers for helping me stay focused this year!!
Needs some fixes
by jpomarino on 2018/08/29 18:21
I love the concept behind this app, but I’ve experienced some problems with it in the past. For example, there are times when I spend 40-90 minutes studying and once the timer is up, I’m directed toward a “connection failure” menu even when I’m connected to the Internet. This screen will not disappear until I close and refresh the app, which prevents me from earning the time spent on my different goal trackers. At times, when I open the app after the timer goes off, there are messages saying that one of my tress was killed, even when my phone remained untouched the whole time. It would also be helpful if there was a “0 minutes” mark when planting a tree for when people want to focus for exactly one or two hours. Maybe you could also add minutes that are not just multiples of five for those that need to concentrate for a very specific amount of time. This last point is not a flaw but something I would like to see in the app. As a busy student, I like to keep track of multiple aspects of my life, and I would like this app to have more than just six goal trackers if it were possible. It would be truly beneficial as there are some aspects of my life I’d like to monitor too besides my six main ones. This app has helped me a lot in concentrating on my homework and studying during the summer and with some fixes, it could be even better.
EDIT: Thank you!

Thank you SO MUCH for adding other login options than facebook. I’ve been loving the app so far, and I’ve gotten so many things done today. It’s cool how you added the Sign-In With Apple option, too. Now I don’t have to download a paid app to get all the nice features that this app has. Thanks again! I’ve been waiting to use this app for almost a year now, since I’m only in middle school and can’t download the paid Forest app and don’t have a Facebook account to log in to this app. It’s kind of annoying that when I found this app I was like “FINALLY I’VE FOUND IT,” but then realized that I couldn’t even log in. Now it’s been 12 months and still you have not released another email option. Is it supposed to take this long? I know I’m being impatient, but you’re blocking out so many users because of the limit you put on them. You shouldn’t expect students to have Facebook, anyway. So many people are in need of this app, and I’ve signed up for the email notification and everything. Please, please release this option as soon as you can. I’m almost in high school, and this app will be so beneficial in helping me stay focused. Thanks!

I really love this app; it’s helped me be so productive, haha. It’s simple but works really well. The Grand Tour feature is also really cool! Plus, I like how you can set goals and how many hours you want to focus on the goal, although it would be nice to be able to reset the goals like every week or something. Another idea is maybe to have an option where you can silence notifications from other apps while planting a tree, because I know those lock screen text notifications can be very tempting, haha. Also, it would be cool if a timer could be added to your phone’s lock screen while planting so you know how much time you have left. Or maybe a widget. Finally, I think there’s a glitch of what plants I planted? When I planted one orange, it somehow duplicated and replaced other existing plants so now I have three oranges instead of the just one orange that I planted. I don’t mind that much though, since it still looks very nice, haha. Overall, I love the concept of this app and how it lets me channel my inner focus!

ny time I am trying to study Are use the Flora app and it can be used for anything and you can set reminders and your tree will grow and there’s also a premium where you can actually plant real trees it’s amazing and also this is how your tree grows you set a timer the lowest setting is five minutes and It goes all the way to ours so you can pick hours and minutes then if you go and open any other app then your tree will die and if you pause then your thing may not look at sk it goes all the way to ours so you can pick hours and minutes then if you go and open any other app then your tree will die also Florida is the best app you can friend people and you can grow trees together it’s amazing I love this app so much but you do need to login with either Google Facebook or email but if you don’t wanna spend any money then you don’t have to it’s a free amazing app all the sponsoring Youtubers and stuff they were right everything they said was right by the way this review is not sponsored
Couple bugs
by Effy_wolf on 2018/05/29 23:59
Pros: really does help me and my sister to focus on our work together and overall a really helpful app with lots of nice features. The all around the world feature is by far my favourite as well as the group planting aspect. Very helpful app overall if you just want to get off you phone. Cons: there are a couple bugs which I feel need to be addressed. One is that sometimes when logging in with Facebook it’ll say the login isn’t associated with a account but opening the page in safari seems to let you log in as normal. Another con is the fact that it’s Facebook only but I understand that the team is looking at adding more options soon so it’s not that big a deal. Just a small feature I would like is for me to see on my lock screen the time remaining as a notification so that I don’t have to unlock my phone but that’s just a nitpick. Overall: the app works great and gets the job done. Obviously there are downsides which many people see as having a big impact, but personally if you don’t mind using an old Facebook or making a throwaway one, it helps a lot and I would highly recommend.
If you struggle with procrastination GET THIS NOW.
by TACOS FOR ME!!!!!! on 2020/11/13 22:51
Stop reading download this app right now then come read this review. Done? Ok let’s start. I struggle with procrastination, lets be honest, we all do. As a high schooler , college student , and eldest immigrant daughter, it’s hard to motivate yourself. You have so much on your mind and you slowly sweep into this pool of emptiness. It’s hard to get back in track and keep pushing. This app really helped me with that. To push away pleasure from games and texting and just focus on work. We tend to avoid things when we are stressed, but then end up in regret right before a due date. This app rewards your studying (and good habits) and helps you get back on track. It’s refreshing to see your plant grow at the end of your progress. The Friends feature is motivating. You get to see your friends progress and their little garden. The feature where both you and your friend get a shared time and if one of you goes on an app for too long... the tree dies. It helps keep both of you in check and be responsible. Quite funny when they kill the plant on purpose just for sh**s and giggles HAHAHAHAH!!! Anyways, even if you aren’t a student and just want to just sit down read a book or work on a personal project, this is a great helper! It’s free download it and explore it yourself! For a new app, it is almost perfect. I’m quite excited to see what they have in store for us. I don’t have any problems with it yet! Enjoy~❤️
Effective and fun!
by jMAOO on 2021/01/05 22:08
I’ve used many different productivity timer type apps and even some that lock me out of my phone for the duration. I’ve stopped using all of those because it was either too restrictive or too lax. Flora is the perfect happy medium - no one wants to kill a tree even if it’s a cartoon one! That alone seems to motivate me enough to not switch to any other app on my phone during a timed session, unless I absolutely have to take a call or something. I like that I can be flexible in the work time I choose, so as to not stick to rigid time intervals such as pomodoro timers. And it’s just so pleasant to “travel” around the world and plant different things. I have also opted to pay for the “plant a real tree” option for a certain number of hours worked. That’s so creative and inspiring! Thanks for designing an awesome app. I wish there was a short pause function instead of all or nothing with killing the tree, but this is minor and not worth taking any stars off for.
Love the idea
by etruhart on 2019/01/02 19:30
One of the first things I did with this app was set aside time to read a personal book. The timer is a really easy way to focus on one thing at a time and get an idea of how much time you need for certain activities. I love that they include Flora Care which is a charity you can donate to and in exchange a certain number of hours logged in the app translates to a real tree planted. However the only way you are able to use the app is if you have a Facebook account, I haven’t used my Facebook in months but was lucky enough to remember my login. Although after only a couple days of using the app I was told I needed to log back in to Facebook and was redirected to a Facebook security measure asking for a photo of my face -after this i was told i had to wait for the photo to be reviewed before i could log back in. It would be much easier to use an account that I use more readily such as gmail, or even the option to create a new Flora account not necessarily connected to another social media
by Dawncermcd on 2019/11/23 20:49
After just two days of using this app, I can finally say I have found a tool that actually helps me focus. I love the incentive of planting trees, it is an incentive outside myself which is more motivating than a cup of coffee. I feel that with each plant added to my personal garden I am working to make a difference! The reason I didn’t give this app a 5 star rating is the lack of alarm when the goal has been met. It doesn’t seem to have one (or I just can’t find it). I like to break up my tasks in smaller increments which this app does wonderfully, but it doesn’t alert me to when I need to take a break or switch to a new task. Ultimately, I have found myself working for an hour instead of 25 minutes (who CJ is GREAT, don’t get me wrong), but it also doesn’t show a true reflection of my focus and doesn’t show me true progress toward my goal. I’d love to have the option for a notification. (If it’s there, please point me in the right direction!).
LOVE, and Want for iPad
by grievedghost on 2021/04/28 17:26
I’ve tried a lot of different habit/to-do tracking and focus apps, but none that had both the rich feature set (habits, to-dos, focus, connections) and the real-world benefit (beyond my own). I also love the “journey” concepts that are unlocked with reasonable engagement with the app, rather than high-bar “purchases” that constantly seem out of reach as I’ve experienced with other apps. It’s truly an app that balances a motivation to use it with a motivation to put down my phone and focus. I like it so much that I wish there was an iPad version to complete the iPhone app, perhaps even one that syncs so that if I start a timer on one device, the same timer starts on the other (maybe if I choose for it to be so)... I sometimes find that it’s too easy to lose focus when I have another device to get around using my phone. Thanks so much to the developers for their work and impact!
Seems good but don’t have Facebook
by A Friedly User on 2019/05/06 02:02
Update:it’s May 5 of 2019 and you STILL DONT HAVE A EMAIL LOGIN OR ANY OTHER LOGIN ALTERNATIVE. You say you’ll add it as soon as possible but you updated the app last week and still NO EMAIL LOGIN. Just look at your negative reviews for 5 SECONDS and you’ll see that’s all we want. I have it as 4 stars in hopes that you will see this. You guys say that you’re “working on email login” but it’s been months. Why is it taking so long. Almost all your low star ratings are because it’s Facebook only. This isn’t good for your business because people won’t use the app because of Facebook login only. You might be working on it but make it a priority. I don’t want to use forest cause it cost $ and I just want to be productive. I understand it takes time to implement this but people have been asking since AT LEAST 2017, I didn’t scroll further cause it was long. Most apps that have sign ins have email function so why is it taking so long. At least give us an explanation
Facebook mandate
by AletheaAy on 2018/06/05 00:50
Flora is a great app and concept, I’m not sure if this or Forest: stay focused, came first but either way I appreciate the idea and the fact that this app is free makes it accessible. It truly does help my workflow. However the face that you HAVE to log in with a Facebook account is annoying and frankly a huge turn off to a lot of users, especially those in the 16-24 range I imagine. If the app wants folx to plant seeds together consider looking into airplay compatibility or simply generating share codes for long distance collaboration. Finally and this is a minor note, I used one other app similar to this and one of the touches I appreciated was as you racked up more time you unlocked different plants and could get an overview of your ‘garden.’ Perhaps integrating these features would veer to close to a copy right infringement. I’m not sure. But overall flora gets the job done it’s highly customisable in terms of time and relatively intuitive; though I will say returning to the planting screen after finishing a session isn’t the smoothest transition. 3/5 keep going !
Idk what’s happening.....
by Amylyn Brooks on 2020/12/07 19:51
So I got this app literally TODAY. My sister recommended it to me and said it is a great app. So I downloaded it. I got some work done with it and it really does help me. But then after I completed my second session of using the app, it wouldn’t load anything. Then after not doing anything, it randomly took me through the tutorial. I was so confused because I had already made an account and gone to through the tutorial already. Then when I go to check my account, it has no info. No name, no email. So I log out. Every time I go to log in it just stops at the same page. It says something about needing to put in my email again to verify. I put in my email and then I press verify. NOTHING HAPPENS. I go to press verify again and the same thing. I have tried going through the “Continue With Google “ and I have done the “Continue With Email” and both of them end up on the same thing. I have no idea how to fix it. It seems like a great app (I have read your reviews) but I can’t seem to be able to log in to use it.
Good, but a bit buggy
by MissJubilee on 2018/04/22 16:45
I love how this app encourages me to put down my phone and keep my hands off for a time. Also, a recent update lets me plant while offline. And of course it’s cool that o can plant a real tree with a donation. However, there are still a lot of bugs in the basic functions. If I plant offline and then turn the WiFi on, or vice versa, the finished plant doesn’t show up in my garden. And if I open the app while offline, it often gives me a login page that requires me to turn the WiFi on again and log in via Facebook - which I’m usually not willing to do at that point, since my goal was to get OFF the phone and internet. Strangely, when I come back to the app with the internet on, later, it doesn’t require me to log in again, but goes straight to the planting screen. I really don’t think an app about putting down your phone should require any login, internet, or other special steps to use unless the user requests to make it a social event for that particular time. (It also requires a social use to get past level 9.)
The best tree timer app on the market
by Maxcnw on 2020/08/28 20:40
Great app to help me stay focused while doing my necessary reading. I’ve always had problems concentration, but that has been made worse since the COVID quarantine and my reliance on phones/computers. It had gotten to the point where I would sit down with a book or something and within minutes I would be back on my phone checking something or responding to someone without realizing that I was no longer reading or doing my task. Now, I automatically pick up my phone and I’m gently reminded that I’m working on something else. Plus, after paying a few bucks, there’s an added benefit of slowly working towards a tree donation. I think that helps me stay concentrated, the award of getting my little digital plant as well as working towards a real tree. It’s worth a download to try and it’s definitely better than the app charging money to do something similar.
Great app—for phone addicts
by Cre8tv on 2021/04/03 19:41
If you can’t stay off your phone and need to get other things done, then I highly recommend Flora. It’s motivating (I recommend opting into Flora Care for the motivation of planting REAL trees!). Unfortunately, I wish there were a Flora version for us lazy ones who don’t have a phone addiction issue. I simply procrastinate a lot. I’ve found Flora is a great motivator, but the problem is that many of the things I’m procrastinating about are phone calls I need to make. That this is geared for the phone addict crowd limits its usefulness as an aid for those who are simply habitual procrastinators. It’s the reason I’m now looking at other apps to try to fit my need to be able to get things done when they sometimes require phone use. I would recommend Flora either put out other Pomodoro-style apps or open up availability to other uses, which would help people like me as well as likely expand their consumer base. But as an app to keep you off the phone and motivate you, this app deserves FIVE stars. Areas where it could be improved: Better tutorial and FAQ. I have had to email the developer a couple times for answers to what would seem like basic questions yet aren’t covered adequately in their tutorial or FAQ. The developer has been very friendly and responsive, btw.
Good yet Frustrating
by Bo116 on 2018/04/12 15:46
I do like the incentive to put down the phone &amp; focus, BUT there are two main problems. First, it is dificult to navigate the &#34;grand tour&#34; because it MANDATES that you get a friend to play, and some of us don&#39;t like to prosyletize our apps (or &#34;play&#34; with friends in this way). Since I didn&#39;t invite a friend to play with me, it just stpped progressing, which was quite depressing. Second, sometimes the app stopped counting down when my iPhone went to black screen. So I&#39;d be focusing for 50 minutes, and over an hour later I&#39;d check my phone (why don&#39;t I have a tree yet?) and the countdown clock would be at 48:33. I found that I had to keep the screen live the whole time sometimes just to get it to actually countdown - which was beyond annoying and really undermined the entire purpose of the focus app which is, after all, to focus AWAY from the phone. That glitch seemed to be fixed when I restarted everything, but still, quite annoying.
Helps me stay away from my phone!
by asdfghjkl-/:;()$&@"" on 2019/02/25 05:43
I’m going to be real, I really enjoy this app. It makes me feel terrible to kill a tree, so I can focus more instead on getting assignments/studying done. I also like how you can categorize the time you spend not on your phone- I use it to keep track of how many hours I’ve worked/studied for each of my classes, and it helps me balance out the hours for each subject! There are a few bugs though, sometimes when I set a timer and turn off my phone, the app will stop, and refresh. Then the timer will be completed, even though it is not. It gives me free time on the app, but I didn’t actually earn those minutes. I think another feature that would add to the experience, could be a log of each week’s total hours. I know you can scroll through your feed to see it, but if you did a lot of sessions, scrolling can take a while to see these summed up. Overall, would recommend!
Game changer!
by Bryn 😍 on 2021/01/09 00:46
I have ADHD and have always struggled with focusing like most of us do in general. I’ve tried so many techniques to focus but nothing ever seems that effective. I’ve tried to delete apps but I’ll just redownload them or get distracted on the lamest apps just to avoid my work. This app has helped me be conscious about picking up my phone when I should be working and it helps me keep track of time. The best part is helping the planet! I always want to do more and be a humanitarian or some kind but that can be difficult as a college student with a job. I paid the $10 so I can do as much good for the earth while doing the same for myself. I also like this app personally more than forest or other apps because you have the ability to grow more irl trees. I just started this app this week and it’s already helped a lot!! Thank you!
It’s a great app, but...
by liv'n the life 🎡🎢🎠 on 2021/02/20 18:16
I love this app and it is sooooo helpful. But I can’t pause the timer if I need to text my mom or I need to just look something up when studying. It has the option to pause, but it doesn’t do anything, it’s like it’s just there for decoration. So, ofc, I have to kill the tree. I did a timer for 3 hours and like 5 hours or so later I went on my phone and it said I killed a tree! What?! Plz fix this, cause it’s getting on my nerves 😖 Another thing, is that I don’t have Facebook so I can’t connect with anyone, and it’s really annoying. I would love to see my friends accomplishments and and join their sessions. Why can’t it be like Among Us where u don’t need to sign in to be with people? Edit: for the past month of doing flora, all my trees are algae- I literally haven’t had a single different tree! It’s really annoying to work so hard for the same tree you’ve been getting for days
Working life changed!
by lifechanged 2020 😊 on 2020/12/10 00:09
I had been struggling for months feeling like I was wasting time at work, and therefore working more hours than I needed to be and beating myself up in the progress. I felt so guilty I literally started praying for an ability to focus. Enter the flora app. With this app, I can now focus on commas as it keeps me from my major distractors. I’ve also learned more about myself, like how much focused time I really have in me in a day and how long I can actually sustain focus on average. I cannot recommend this app enough. And in fact, I’ve been recommending to everyone I know. Additional Perks: I like that I can still have music playing in the background, since that can sometimes help me focus. And I also like that I can pause the countdown for quick things, like if I’ve forgotten to turn on said music. 😉
Best concentration app
by Dsilva1028 on 2020/11/10 02:01
This app really helped me be motivated to NOT grab my phone. The free way of using the app is by growing plants. You do this by starting a timer of your time choice. If you do not tough your phone in the time you selected the plant grows and adds to your garden. If you grab your phone and leave the app to do something else like social media the plant dies and none of your time is recorded for that session. You can get serious with the app and do it the “ putting money where your mouth is” way by betting a dollar amount of your choice that you will complete the time you selected. If you don’t complete the focus time the money you bet goes to many different great organization for developing countries and forestation organizations. Also, the app allows you to have friends to motivate each other. Love this app!
Like it more than I thought!
by Aquinomorets on 2020/11/14 17:45
I first got this app because while doing school online it’s easier to get distracted since there is no one to tell me to get off my phone. I love that every time you focus and reach your time you unlock a plant from that region of the the world. I love the fun facts that are presented and I often find myself trying to get more done just so that I can focus and unlock a new plant! There is also an option to pledge money if you kill a plant which is nice for those who find it extra hard to keep the phone away but I like it more that it is optional and you can keep things free if you want too. I’m pretty sure it asks you to put in a Credit card but you don’t get charged for anything unless you pledge money and end up killing the tree. Overall, love the app and it’s cause!
Flora and Fauna? Garden Wilting?
by rnariam on 2020/09/28 20:33
This is not in the name of the app and it may seem sadistic and extreme, but I think it would be highly motivating to be threatened with the sickness or death of a virtual animal. That would come with much higher stakes than plants and completely ensure I get my work done. There is no app like that on the market. Call it the fauna of flora! My less extreme suggestion is an option to have our garden wilt if there is no activity in the app for a whole day. It’s an incentive for constant productivity. I need help with not just adherence to productivity sessions, but initiation of those sessions in the first place. Because I’m very aesthetically motivated, further customization and personalization of our garden would be cool too. Maybe different illustrative styles. All of that being said, this app is very effective and I enjoy growing my plants.
Fun Approach to Productivity - ADHD Tool
by trever_the_clever on 2021/02/27 06:08
This is a great way to take your attention away from those distracting apps and onto the task at hand. I have only used it for a day, but I can tell that Flora definitely has the potential to help me power through my next chunk of college reading. I already killed a tree, though.☹︎ For my ADHD self, intrusive thoughts can pop up and steal my attention in an instant, causing me to close the app and start up a pointless video without even realizing it, before I can even process the fact that my tree wasn’t done growing. At the very least, this app will help me to become more aware of those impulses. The tree is a small but helpful barrier that slows down the thoughtless phone-grabbing process just enough to analyze my decision a little bit more before making it.
I would give this app a million stars if I could!
by Rose19Cactus on 2019/07/15 16:27
I love flora! It’s just the most amazing focus timer app I have. I have trouble concentrating but I’m a very driven student and I constantly have to study. I love plants and I love “traveling the world and growing their native plants” in this app. It’s just the most rewarding experience in my opinion. I downloaded this app last week and I’ve already completed 22 hours! That’s a lot considering it’s summertime right now and I only have one online class. I also really like the fact that I can take a break. Things always come up when I study and I have babysit my brother when my moms at work so being able to pause to do my chores and etc is a wonderful feature. I highly recommend you get this app and actively use it to focus if you are a student!
I love this app!
by Briittz on 2020/09/19 20:19
Once I figured out how to switch the seeds (click on the seed and you can pick what you plant, swipe right for a new location you unlocked), I became a wee bit addicted to making a nice looking garden. I was eternally stuck with roses for a week before I looked up how to switch the seeds. I would recommend switching the tutorial. It’s not really user friendly and I didn’t learn how to use the app. (I just swiped right and didn’t pay attention to it after I realized it was just slides of images.) I learned more about it after the tutorial. I think an interactive tutorial would be better or even a small video. But it didn’t prevent me from enjoying the app. I still don’t know the purpose of the to do list. Is there anyway to make some items recurring?
Love this app, but I have a few suggestions!
by Grayshka on 2020/09/11 15:24
I’ve only been using this app for a short time, but I love it! It’s very useful for me with online school because I tend to get distracted and have to work until 5-6 in the evening when I could’ve been done by 3. My main suggestion is a way to add time. I always put in how much time I think my work will take, but I tend to undershoot it by anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes. If there was an option to add time so you don’t have to stop working and make a new timer, it would be amazing. Also, the daily summary doesn’t work for me. Even on days where I use the app for 2 hours, it says I haven’t done anything that day. The time is counted in the app, but not in the summary notification. Other than those two things, I love this app, the graphics, and the simplicity of the interface!
Best app for studying
by synthlegal on 2021/02/16 15:26
I’m sure everyone uses the app for different reasons. But for me I love the progression that makes it feel like a game. However, once I reached the max level it kind of seems pointless because there are no more trees to unlock. Could you make a reset button where we can reset out progress? Or if it’s easier, could you make a button where instead of choosing the tree we want it will randomly choose for us? I like to immediately click start again when I’m focused and sometimes I have 8 tomatoes and nothing else in my farm. Having the random button would help. Although, this is just a suggestion and the app is great regardless. Ill just be creating a new account instead since I can reset my progression that way.
It’s good
by meloan on 2018/09/08 17:31
I like the idea, and it works well for what it is. It has helped me control my impulse to use my phone. One time I left the app without even thinking about it and then freaked out and reopened the app. Luckily because I hadn’t entered another app, my tree survived :) The reason I took off a star is the in-app purchases. I thought I would be able to plant real trees without paying, but I was wrong. That isn’t a big problem, but I wish I could help while still being a starving student. I also do not want to participate in the paying section that involves putting money on your ability to stay off your phone. Overall I use the free parts and like it. The tags are cool because I can see what I’ve worked on. I think I’ll be using the app in class too because I have a bad habit of checking my email instead of paying attention.
Great App, just needs some major fine tuning
by Dawookoo on 2019/06/22 19:36
This is a great app, there are very affordable plans if you want your focus time to actually contribute to planting real trees in the world. The only issue is when you want to study with friends who have flora. The only issues I have with this app are: 1) The timer starts as soon as you send a request for your friends to join your study session. This means that time is wasted until they can all actually join rather than all of us starting at the same time. 2) Inviting friends is very old school and clunky. If you request for a friend to join your study session directly through the app, it’s a hit or a miss. Sometimes they’ll get the invitation and sometimes they won’ that’s more time wasted (keep in mind the timer has already started) 3) The only reliable way to make sure your friends get the notification to join the study session is to text them a password/key to join the session. Now they have to wait for the text, get the password/key, type it into the app (you can’t copy-and-paste), and you’re friends are finally joined...oh and the timer has already finished a few minutes...why can’t there just be a link that friends can click on and automatically join the study session?
by Pannyker on 2019/12/08 06:13
The reason why this app is awesome is because it actually helps you, scientifically if you understand why. The use of it is simple. When studying you can’t just sit for hours upon hours and retain the knowledge. Our brain naturally stops focusing around 25 minutes. If we take a step away from our work for as little as 5-10 ten minutes to tidy up, talk a walk, go on social media, or play games etc... and go back to study our brain is refreshed and ready at peak effectiveness. The incentive and the little Forrest you develop is really cute and gives you more reason to stay on the app while doing your work. Also the fact you can donate money by your hours of focus is also an incentive to work hard so you can give back to the world! Love it!
Timer and alarm would improve this app
by Oxcamilaxo on 2020/09/19 21:10
A timer that shows up in the locked screen with how many minutes are left should definitely be a part of the app. Is annoying to have to unlock my phone and go to the app to check how long I have been focusing or have left. An alarm should also sound once you have completed the focus session. Is happened to me countless of times that I intend to focus for lets say 40 minutes and then end up studying for an hour or more because I wasnt alerted that my sessions had ended. While is important to focus, breaks are much needed so you dont overwork yourself. Plus we could had gotten more flora with the minutes that were unaccounted for. The reward of seeing what type of seed sprouted is the fun part of the app. So if it was more interactive or the rewards were more interesting then it will encourage users to do more sessions. The idea is fun, but small changes could greatly improve it as well.
Real tree planting and timing needs improvement
by Lily28s on 2019/10/16 12:47
Planting a tree if you kill the tree in app doesn’t make sense, because the more trees planted means more people killing their trees in-game. I think the flora care plan is better or more effective for planting real trees because you plant a real tree only if you succeed. It is a better incentive because you are rewarded for your focus and the more time you focus using the app the more trees are planted encouraging you to keep growing the tree in game. Also, the timings on the front page don’t make a lot of sense, 25 minutes should be half an hour 50 minutes should be one hour etc. Please allow us to set the time for focusing to a longer time, up to 24 hours because I like to run it while I’m at school since I can’t have my phone out at school and I have to reset it after three hours
Facebook only??
by learningtocode on 2019/02/12 16:21
I thought the app had an interesting concept and a beautiful layout from the pictures so I was willing to try it to help with my focus and concentration. It’s really surprising to see there is only one login method: Facebook. I feel that in itself is a really poor design seeing how there are people such as myself who are not on Facebook and neither do I wish to even create a dummy account. You would think there would at least be a way to sign up using your email and a password at the least. That should even be the standard. But I’m pretty shocked and disappointed that this app is for Facebook users only. I don’t think I’ve ever run into this problem with any apps I’ve used throughout the years. They are apparently working to include other login options but I can’t say I’m just going to sit around and wait for that. Surely there’s another app that’ll provide what I’m looking for.
Good stuff
by magikarp1234 on 2018/09/15 00:26
I really really like Flora as a way to set my phone aside and get stuff done! Aside from some crashing issues that have since been resolved, I haven’t had any problems. It’s simple - you plant a seed, adjust how much time it will take to “grow,” and then you’re obligated to stay within the app in order to keep your plantling alive! It’s a great idea, and sooner or later I’m going to get around to digging into the other options it has (I’m really in need of one that lets me set goals of different types, because I’m trying to keep up a couple different habits at once - will see if that’s an option here). Anyway, give it a try if you’re looking for a cute way to turn your phone (and all its distractions) into a brick for a while!
Mixed review for ADHD
by dermaldenticle on 2019/10/28 22:54
Flora certainly won’t solve all your concentration issues, but I find it a helpful tool to have on my phone. You can set a timer for concentration time and another one for when it’s time to get back to work. The app performs exactly as its meant to and is very attractive. My only issue is with the world tour. As you progress the time needed to unlock plants increases. What works best for my ADHD is 25 minutes of concentration and then a 5 minute break, but if I want to progress, I must set my timer for 50+ minutes. I could take a break after 25 minutes, but this seems a little silly to have to do each time, particularly given the purpose of Flora. Overall Flora does what it says and is charming, but is perhaps better suited to those looking to increase the length of their concentration periods.
If you want to concentrate YOU MUST GET THIS APP!
by KitKat6381 on 2020/10/27 02:18
This app is the best if you want to concentrate on homework, work, or you just want to get a break from your devise. With hard times right now like distance learning and working from home, it can be challenging to stay focused. But this app really helps. How it works is you plant a seed and set a timer for however long you want to focus. If you leave the app to do something else on your phone, your tree will start dying. So it forces you to stay in the app. If you don’t care about trees dying, this app is not for you. Also, you can pay so that whenever you want to focus on something and you set a timer on the app, it will plant a real tree! Now I think this app is the best! YOU MUST GET THIS APP!!!!!
Beautiful app
by lydkid1761 on 2021/02/07 23:11
I’ve been using this app for a couple of months now. When an update changed the interface a few months back, it first lagged a bit (it wouldn’t clock in all the hours I’ve spent planting in the total score), so I didn’t use it for some time (even though I never got rid of it). The latest updates are a game changer! Not only is the app running smoothly, but the whole Grand Tour and all the different plants you get are really helping me want to plant and be more and more productive! The fact that I’ve never bothered to write a review for any app I’ve used and loved up until now, should be compliment enough. Thank you and please keep up the great work! 🪴🌷🌲🌳🥑
Love the app but lots of bugs
by eukoolyptus on 2020/11/09 08:29
Hello! I’ve used this app for over a year now and it’s really helped me get more motivated and productive. However, I’ve noticed that the app seems to bug a lot for me from plants disappearing to my friends disappearing to my stories not loading. There is even a bug I’ve experienced multiple times now where a tree will finish growing but I will never get it in my garden. Then for several consecutive attempts at growing more trees they will grow immediately and show up in my garden. I’ve noticed that most of these bugs occur at the beginning of a new week and usually fix themselves as the week continues and most of the effects are not permanent (like trees don’t disappear permanently for the most part) but they’re still extremely frustrating to deal with. I hope there will be fixes for them soon!
Amazing cause and helps me get work done
by sweaty froggie on 2020/08/03 05:53
I have tried other apps before that try to get you to concentrate by putting on a timer for you, but none of them worked. However, because flora allows you to plant a tree by simply using the app and getting work done, I am able to genuinely put my phone aside and concentrate. Having the incentive of planting trees really motivates me because it is more than just an app. By using the app and concentrating on work, I’m able to make a difference and help flora plant some trees. You do have to pay a couple dollars though, but I only had to pay $2 (1 tree planted every 120 hours for a whole year). I love it so much. Would recommend 👍🏼
Simplistic and Motivating
by Basement_Dweller69 on 2021/02/14 12:36
I love how this app manages to integrate nature into motivating a person to focus. Flora is smart in that it rewards the person using it with a place marking reward to help commemorate an achievement. It makes me feel like doing my American Politics work is actually worthwhile, and I would say that is a feat. I also appreciate how this app gives you the chance to actually pay to make a difference in your world. I don’t like the insistence for me to pay, but I appreciate the sentiment. I haven’t used this app for a long time, but as far as habit forming goes, I’m building on what I have, and that is special. Highly recommend if you want an invisible force driving you to get something done.
I’ve been using it for a long time and it works very well!
by followundongoofedlena on 2020/11/11 15:46
I’ve been using this app since I was in 9th grade, i’m a junior now. I’ve worked very hard to collect different plants from different countries. I love the graphics and the Pomodoro method employed and used in this app. I only took one star off because I tried to log in today and it asked me to sign in again, which I did through my facebook, but it told me that my email was already being used. I logged in with my email just to investigate, and found out that it was an entirely new account, with all of my progress lost. Is there a way to fix this? This app has been a necessity for both my phone and school device and I’d hate to lose all of my three year progress. Please help.
Definitely Useful! Buuut…
by sayakay on 2019/10/12 02:28
it would be great to see something like a Chrome extension or a version of the app for web browsers. There are definitely times when I need a little help staying off my phone, but much more often I find myself *clicking* off task when I need to be doing something on another site. There is another app (which, out of respect of Flora’s devs, will remain unnamed) which already has this feature and it does function but I would love to link my focus time on the computer with my time in Flora. I think this app is GREAT (hence the five stars) so don’t take this as a negative review. It’s just a request that I think will make this app better than it already is ☺️
Great Alternative to Forest
by MeganAF114 on 2019/05/01 21:27
I was looking for alternatives to Forest when I stumbled upon this app. I have no idea why it took me so long to follow it because they were once tied together! I’m having lots of fun using the app while writing, and I’ve loved discovering what flora I’ve grown at the end of my sessions. I plan on buying more “tours” (packs of flora to grow—there’s only one besides the free one at the moment) when I’ve got the coinage to spare. I did knock off a star because the only way to log in is through Facebook. I began using Facebook when I was a child, and I’m in just a tad too deep to extricate myself, at least for now. All those groups! I figured whatever data Facebook could collect from me using this app, they probably already have, unfortunately. Nevertheless, the devs say they’re working on alternative ways to log in. If you download the app, open, and scroll down, you can see they have a spot to give them your email address so they can give you a heads-up when that’s ready. I highly recommend doing that if you’re worried about Facebook mining your data (who isn’t?).
Flora 🌹🌳
by july28030 on 2020/11/09 03:18
It is a wonderful app that really works, i just recently downloaded it after a friend recommended it to me, and it has already helped so much. Weather you need to focus on something or you just need to take a break from using your phone this is the app for you , you can unlock different plants and each them grow as time goes by. If I was to change anything it would be more stages of plant growth, or maybe after you complete your first session a tree gets planted for free. but that’s it; and that’s after thinking for a while what could possibly be changed about this app. Overall this is an amazing app , and I would sooooo recommend it to friends.
SO disappointed
by Biyxtren on 2018/04/27 22:29
I had been using this app faithfully and liked it more than the similar app that you have to pay for. Recently, I woke up to a dead tree and notifications that made no sense whatsoever. I had one notification from 3 hours prior saying my tree had grown successfully (no such tree ever showed on my feed). Then I had a notification from 2 hours and 40 minutes after that saying to go check on my tree. I never planted another tree. There was no tree to check on. But apparently I killed this make believe tree and that is all that shows on my feed for that day instead of the tree that I actually grew. I can&#39;t even delete the dead tree that I didn&#39;t kill. There is no customer service whatsoever so there&#39;s not even any point in &#34;leaving feedback&#34; in the app. They have only ever responded once despite multiple issues and have never done anything to fix any of said issues. Haven&#39;t used the app since.
Hands down to the best app ever!🤩🤩🤩🥳
by crystalxxxxx on 2018/11/08 03:29
Seriously though, I love this app so much! I just downloaded it because I thought it was the Forest app that I used previously. But i started using this app and I’m in love! I love the fact that you can use your own money as a “mortgage”, which really gives me pressure NOT to touch my phone !!! Well comparing to last time I used Forest, I didn’t care even if the plant died because it didn’t have much effect on me! So now with this app and my own money in danger(lol) I could actually force myself not to use my phone!!! GOOD JOB TO THE DEVELOPERS ILY XOXOXO HOPE YOU GET #1 IN PRODUCTIVITY LOLLL I HAVE FAITH (PS. Is there any other way to customize the name and pic and stuff? I don’t wanna use my FB profile pic it’s really ugly lol)
