Users who are simply too attached to their smartphone apps or the like to put down their phone could benefit from the 'Forest' app as a way to help make a game out of curbing use.

The 'Forest' app works by having users set the amount of time they would like to be productive and not use their phone. The app will plant a tree that will flourish and grow during this time, and that will die if you disturb it when you should be avoiding phone use. The various trees grow a small virtual forest that you can admire when looking back on your week or month of use.

The 'Forest' app takes a fun, interactive approach to deterring you from using other smartphone apps and your device altogether in order to bolster your overall productivity.
