Forest is a great app for staying focused and productive. It's particularly good for brief periods of intensive work or study, such as when you want to focus for 15 minutes at a time. It's design is cute, fun and highly engaging and the app's features are simple to understand and use. Even better, there is the option to boost the environment in the real world by using the option to plant real trees and a sense of community. It's a great way to get the most from your study or work time and to avoid unwanted distractions on your phone!
