AppLovin Recognizes Mother’s Day: Reasons We’re Thankful for Our Moms

by AppLovin on May 6, 2021

At AppLovin, we have so much to be thankful for. It’s been quite an incredible year—from our recent announcement that we’re now a publicly-traded company to having Adjust join our team.

We’re extending that gratitude to that person in our lives who has always been there to support, love, and shape who we’ve become—our mothers. So, for this year’s Mother’s Day, we asked AppLovin employees why they’re grateful for the wonderfully wise women that taught us so much about life. 

Of course, we also asked about what apps they believe are popular for moms.
