Forest: This is an app that is great for those of us who have trouble putting their phone down while they work. Open the app, plant a ‘tree’ and the tree will grow as long as you don’t touch your phone. You can work towards building a whole forest and have calming sounds to accompany you. The app has even partnered with Trees for the Future and let users redeem their coins to plant a real life tree! This app does cost $1.99
Engross: This app is a time management app that improves focus and manage distractions. It works by breaking work into 25-30 minute intervals based off the Pomodoro Technique.

You hit it when you are distracted then it will give you the statistics about when you are most distracted. That way, if you find you are most distracted between 1-3pm then you can tailor your day around that. This one is FREE!
