Featured App
Forest App: Stay focused, be present image
The Forest app helps you focus on the work in front of you by blocking distracting or productivity-sapping websites such as social media. Tap on the app, and click "plant a tree." A 25-minute timer starts, during which the tree grows. To go to a blocked website while the timer is still active, you must kill the tree. Learn more at www.forestapp.cc.
