    This is probably the most innovative and unique app on this whole list. Forest is an app that keeps us focused and productive either on classroom or home-study. All of us have faced the situation where we badly want to check our phones while studying. It helps to alleviate that through a fun game that also helps for a social cause. Forest tries to force you to remain focused by growing a virtual tree. It takes thirty minutes to grow one tree which will then be added to your forest. But if you turn on your phone or visit the sites you blacklisted during that time then the tree will die. More trees you grow, you’ll be given coins and these coins are used to plant actual trees around the world. An app that furthers social cause and encourages us to stay focused and productive during study hours.

    • Fun way to stay focused.
    • Helps further social cause of “Green Earth”

    I personally use forest everyday. Helps me loads - I still am skeptical about the actual impact, but it feels good to have the environmental altruism which motivates me to work!

    When I "used to" study😅, was kind of addicted to this. Like you said, its a feel good thing really.  SelfControl helped me more but Forest was more fun.
