    "Forest: Stay focused is an interest concept in the way to keep you focused away from your phone. This app basically rewards you for leaving the phone alone, and kills off the tree you are trying to grow if you mess with the phone too much. It's a good first step to those who think they are losing too much time to constantly checking their phones."

    "Well, it works. It lets you block apps you don't want to interrupt you. It works great because you can set specific times, so when you are in class or are at work and don't want to be interrupted by certain things it'll block them. I use it all the time."

    "Have trouble focusing or staying on track with your goals? Remente might make your life better! I found it helped me a lot to keep focused on my goals and see progress to keep me motivated. I also like the mood tracker to uncover things that make me happy that I might not otherwise recognize. The pricing leaves a bit to be desired, so I can't give it a full 5, but it's pretty darn good."

    "This app looked promising, however I cannot say it was exactly what I was looking for because it is only available for iOS. However, it seems like if it were available for my device, it would be very useful in helping me keep on track."

    "It is a very decent app for mediation and keeping your record about it. But I was waiting another app as a solution for keeping us focused. Welzen maybe does the job but through mediation. "

    "This is a joke. I thought it might help me not get distracted from my phone, but on the contrary now I just feel frustrated and annoyed and it distracts me that I can't use the things I need. It's like I'm punishing myself! I will not be using this app anymore, but I guess it could be useful for people who want to limit their kids from using certain apps or maybe even themselves, although that whole concept just seems weird to me.
