Forest – grow trees and break your smartphone habit

Putting our phones down can be hard. They’re little boxes of distraction filled with all of our favorite ways to procrastinate and they can come with us just about anywhere. If you have hard time putting your mobile device down, check out Forest, the app and web extension that lets you grow trees in your off time.

This app gamifies your time away from the screen by rewarding you with growing trees. The longer you stay away from the device, the more trees will grow. Each tree takes a certain amount of time to grow and if you come in before that time is up, your tree will die.

As you “play” the more trees will be unlocked so you can grow your own beautiful forest. The best part is, you don’t have to do anything! In fact, that’s how you win, just let your phone or computer alone so that the forest can grow. You can do this. Forest is free for desktop, Android, and Apple products.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
