This Forest App Stops Your Phone Addiction

Posted in Android Application, and IOS

Forest is an app helping you stay away from your smartphone and stay focused on your work.Your phone is distracting. If you have a hard time resisting the impulse to check notifications, Forest helps balance out that impulse with a gamified virtual garden.

Actually it is a pretty inventive way of getting you to focus by bringing you virtual tree incentives. You start out by planting a seed in your forest. For every 30 minutes that you stay away, the seed will grow into a tree. If you’re a good girl or boy, at the end of the day, you might have grown a forest or at least a grove of trees, if you stayed away from your phone. But every time you touch your device, your tree will wither away.

If you do as much as launch a game, take a phone call, or press the “Give Up” button, your budding tree dies… just like that. The weirdest part of it all is that you care for this inanimate, digital plant organism. You know it was only your fault that the tree you planted never came to be! If only you could discipline yourself and stay away from your smartphone for the full 30 minutes, you would have seen your tree grow.
