Forest – Stay Focused $1.99
Forest is an app that helps you stay off their device. You “plant a tree” at the beginning of a task. Meanwhile, the tree grows while you stay off the device. The longer the device remains untouched, the taller and lusher the tree becomes. In addition, small bushes can be planted, bird nests appear, and other details unlock as commitments are met. If the screen is unlocked before the task is completed, consequently, the tree dies. This app is a great resource to curb cell phone addiction. In the same vein, another app, Flora – Focus Habit Tracker, is free to download for Android and iOS.
