Focus for 30 minutes at a time. Or a tree will die. 🌳😵

@emieljanson @PieterPaul Currently, we are working on more advanced features, like detailed statistics, graphic improvements and other cool things. We plan to release a free version months later with in-app purchases for those “pro features”. People who purchased our app before then will have all pro features (and incoming features) without extra charge.

@shaokanp don't make it too complicated. Your app makes me save time, keep it that way.

Would be really cool if a real life tree was actually planted somewhere in a deforestation prone zone

@acondurache @amy_jeng If you'd like to add "planting a real tree as part of reforestation" through a well-renowned NGO via an API, let's talk (ping me at ph@wolf-xaver-merkt.eu; I've API-fied tree planting for said NGO).

@acondurache Hello, the real-tree-planting feature is already available in our iOS app. We have donated and helped Forest users plant over 28,000 real trees. And this feature will also be available soon in our Android app. :)

I could see this go viral if the app was available for free. @shaokanp, did you consider other revenue models?

Love this! Have you considered a free version with in-app purchases? I would be happy to spend on different trees, surprise coupon reward eggs, ... grow cute animals or let them die... lots of interesting directions you could take this!

@PieterPaul We are planning to add more kinds of trees and achievement system in the future. Thanks for your suggestion. :)

Just want to add to potentially making this free with in app purchases. nnI tried to download it (screenshots REALLY intrigued me), but my CC expired and I didn't want to deal with adding another, thus closing the App Store and probably forgetting about this entirely. BUT luckily I use product hunt and am going to see this again

Clever... Forest is like the anti farmville game. The more you don't use it, the more trees you grow. Ha!
