Apple has put the spotlight on one particular app in celebration of Mother's Day.
In a press release (opens in new tab), Apple is highlighting Winnie (opens in new tab), an app that helps mothers find childcare. Samantha Burns, a mother who had a tough time finding childcare during the pandemic, was able to use Winnie to find someone.
Sara Mauskopf and Anne Halsall are the minds behind Winnie. Both were mothers with young children when they met at the same startup six years ago. The two started the app, which helps parents find "safe and certified childcare in their area."
The app, which is five years old, now boasts a network of over 200,000 licensed childcare providers.
To celebrate Mother's Day, Apple sat down for an interview with Mauskopf and Halsall. You can check it out on the Apple Newsroom website (opens in new tab).
