A gamified method for boosting your productivity

THE VERDICT

Phubbing is one of the reasons our productivity drops off. It's difficult not to take the bait when push notifications are constantly tempting us to do so. Forest: Stay Focused has come up with an excellent app concept to keep us glued to our work.

THE PROS

Forest is a gamified concentration method. Whenever you want to focus on a task, you plant a virtual tree. In the next 30 minutes, the tree will grow only if you don't tap the "Give up" button, which will kill the tree automatically. If you unlock your screen, Forest will show you messages such as "Stop phubbing" and "Don't look at me" to dissuade you from responding to your push notifications.

The more loops you complete, the lusher your forest is. You can share the progress of your phone addiction treatment on your social networks.

THE CONS

Although the concept is powerful, it needs more gamification elements. Unlockable items and a more lively forest would make it more challenging and, in consequence, more effective.

The best cure for phone addiction.

Have you ever been addicted to your phone and just cannot put it down? Forest provides an interesting solution to beat your phone addiction. You can plant a seed in Forest. In the next 30 minutes, this seed will gradually grow into a tree. However, if you cannot resist the temptation and leave this app to check Facebook or play a game, your tree will wither away. With this interesting mechanism, the sense of achievement and responsibility will drive our users to stay away from their phone with no pain.

Features:
• A self-motivated and interesting method to help you beat phone addiction
• Cultivate your personal pattern of time management: make good use of 30-minutes to fully concentrate on your work and finish it effectively
