P> Forest iPhone App Many people who own a smartphone are distracted from it too often. The iPhone App Forest tries to motivate you playfully to a smartphone-free working without distraction.
Forest: planting trees for focused work
In Forest you plant a virtual tree, which is fully grown after half an hour. If you do not leave the App during these 30 minutes, you will get a healthy tree that will become part of your virtual Forest.
If you interrupt the App during this time, for example, to open the Facebook App, then your tree dies - and your Forest does not look pretty anymore.
Thus, concentrated work is rewarded by the virtual estate of a beautiful Forest, which you can then share on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter with your friends.
Conclusion: Forest motivates you to fight against your smartphone addiction. Certainly, the gamification principle does not work for everyone - but its still worth trying.
