    "This is one of my all time favorite apps. I am one that has issues with setting goals and completing them. This app allows me to set a goal, create a timer to focus on that task daily and also set breaks during my task so I don't get burnt out or stop doing the task. It has tons of different timer settings and colors can even be changed to my preference. I can also see my goals in a chart setting. "

    "If you need a break or some reining in of your social media habits, you should check out Forest. It can keep you from using social media, and it can help you with focus and motivation (if you're on an iPhone, that is). It can help you track your time on different activities, too, which is awesome. It' s like seeing the 'forest through the trees', ha. Give it a try! The ads are awful and a little intrusive, but other than that it's pretty great!"

    "It doesn't work for me, not saying the app doesn't work, just the method it uses to try to keep you focused does nothing for me. The Pomodoro technique has you work on a task for a certain amount of time then take a break, and that repeats. I thought it'd work for me, it doesn't, it might work for you. The app itself is lovely and wonderful, so if you are interested then I suggest giving it a shot."
