    Very nice UI and UX



    This is amazing so for. It really keeps me going on my task t hand and let me leave my phone totally alone. The idea of growing something (for yourself) because of focussed time, is beautifully illustrated and simply a truth.

    I worked 6 hours yesterday, doing 25 minute chunks with 5-10 minutes of breaks in between. It really helped me to get something profound done.

    Daniel Kiedrowski has used this product for one day.

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; I've API-fied tree planting for said NGO).

@wxmerkt @acondurache @amy_jeng @wolf there are APIs for everything nowadays...

@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?
Pieter Walraven@pieterpaul · Founder & Product @ Pie -
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!
AmyJengMaker@amy_jeng · Developer, Forest App
@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
