We all know we can’t stay off our phones when we have exams, assignments or anything important to do. We are always fidgeting on our phones – doing nothing mostly. We know we have to put our phone down because we have something more important to do than playing games, scrolling through news feed in Facebook, etc.Well, there’s an app just to help you achieve that. We know we are not believers of such apps because for some it works but for mostly it doesn’t. This app is a different one, a unique one in fact, with a different and entertaining concept to help us stay off our phones.
Well, there’s an app just to help you achieve that. We know we are not believers of such apps because for some it works but for mostly it doesn’t. This app is a different one, a unique one in fact, with a different and entertaining concept to help us stay off our phones.
This app called “Forest: Stay focused” developed by forestapp.cc is entirely different and amusing from other apps with the same purpose. This app revolves around a tree and a forest. If you want to stay off your phone, you open the app and plant a little tree that grows to become a fully-grown in about 30 minutes. The tricky part is letting it grow. So while it grows you should stay off your phone. If you try to launch a game, even take a phone call, press the give up button, or even minimize or close the app, the tree dies which you don’t want. This little tree is what makes it worthwhile because you care for this small tree. Many people feel guilty and sad to bring down the tree that they themselves planted in the first place, they would want to see their tree grow and grow fruits or flowers or whatever they expect.
I know, staying off their phones for many people is impossible and I know the app is implausible but kudos to the developers of Forest for the fine concept of the app. Well, I don’t know if this app would help anyone to be more productive or not, that depends on the person using it but like the title says it’s a unique app and the concept is really cool.
