Whether you have been using Forest on a Windows Phone 8 powered device or are just now finding out about it, it’s a good opportunity to learn about the recent update for the app making it available for Windows 10.

Forest is a unique app that works in a unique way: Plant a seed with the app and it will start to grow into a fully mature tree.  The catch, however, is that you must remain within the app for it to continue prospering. If for any reason you leave the app, whether it is to play a game, check some funny posts on 9GAG or anything else that involves you not being in the app, the tree begins to decay and will ultimately die. The purpose of the app is to reinstate a sense of responsibility into the user and help them control phone addiction by rewarding them for not being on it. Phone addiction often leads to serious work performance issues, and people find themselves not being able to get their jobs done due to always being on their mobile devices.

Forest users may share their achievements with friends and see how they have grown their forests in return. The app provides an impressive motivational boost and in the grand scheme of things, not only will users get their work done more efficiently, but also rehabilitate and learn to function without a permanent connection to a mobile device — a trait newer generations that grow up with these devices most certainly have.
