Irritated b/c app is crap - 2021-03-01 02:00:22
Unclear rules to games. They need better transparency
1-star for unclear marketing leading to unfulfilled promises. I was so excited to get a free "starburst bush" via the app-game to "find your tree." In the rules laid out on the game itself, there was no indication that there was a limit to when one could earn the starburst bush, only an invitation to keep playing until you earned it. I played and played until I figured out how to get it. I tapped and held the image as directed and nothing. I was unable to collect the prize I had put so much energy into. I contacted customer service and was informed that there was a cut-off date that was not made available in the game itself but was apparently made available in a part of the app I hadn't noticed prior to being directed to it by customer service. They told me “it was advertised for over a year” which is great, but I’m a new user. There’s no way I could have seen that. advertisement and clearly, I didn’t, which is a fault in their marketing, promotion, and game design. I feel that if there was this cut-off, that 1, I shouldn't have been repeatedly encouraged to replay until I got the bush, and 2, the cut-off should have been made clear both in the encouragement to replay as well as on the final "congrats! You won the bush!" page itself. I'm taken aback by the lack of transparency in the design of this game and the fact that the rules were tucked away in the app itself in a spot that if you didn't know where to look, one would not have looked. They are now telling me that the only way to get the bush I earned is to either give them my credit card number to buy gems, or to invite my friends to the app, in which case, they would be subjected to the same lack of transparency I was. Why would I do either of those things for a company that isn't clear on the limits of their promises? I'm hurt and disillusioned by the cavalier attitude of the customer service team as well as the lack of clear transparency. I would be willing to remove this review, or raise it a few stars in exchange for a starburst bush as well as their commitment to make the rules transparent on the games themselves, not just in an obscure spot in the app, in the future. I tried to attach screenshots for reference but apparently can’t do that.

Longtime user as focus aid for ADHD
I’ve been using Forest on and off across Samsung, Microsoft, Apple, and Google devices for years and am very happy with it. It’s gotten better and better and the format is so pleasing to the eye. I am working on adapting to my ADHD and the motivation of keeping my little tree alive is fantastic. I especially like the deep focus mode that kills my tree if I exit the app. The app allows for use of Spotify or other listening apps while also blocking off other apps so you can continue to listen and adjust what you’re listening to while still locking the phone down. I honestly love it and am so glad I’ve stuck with it all these years.

Although I don’t scroll around social media much, I didn’t realize how much I tend to pick up my phone while studying just to check notifications. This app forces me to put my phone back in an instant. I’m sure my dependence on my phone will reduce over time. This app is addicting because I want to achieve making a nice little forest! I use it for an hour before sleep to keep my phone away, for eating, and for studying. Hopefully much much more!! My only complaint is that have an iPhone so I don’t have the free version. I only have the option to buy it, unlike the android play store.
