Happy Father's Day from the Adjust Team: Lessons from our dads

As much as we love apps, we love our dads’ jokes more. Besides being comedians, dads are one of our pillars of strength, biggest supporters, and lifelong teachers. So, in honor of Father's Day, we asked the Adjust team what the top life lessons they've learned from their fathers are - and (of course) to share which apps their dads use most.

From forwarding news articles via messaging apps, listening to podcasts while out for walks, and watching movies in their free time – our dads are using apps from a huge range of verticals.

Keep reading to discover apps that your dad might like and to hear the lessons they’ve taught us over the years. Maybe they’ll come in handy for you, too!

The apps dads are using most

The most popular vertical amongst Adjust dads is social, with 31% using messaging apps on a regular basis. In second place is productivity and education, at 23% - with audiobooks and podcasts being the top choices within the vertical. And finally, entertainment came in third at 15%, showing that dads also want some downtime.

The best life lessons we've received – and our dads' top apps

Nicholas Leask

My dad has taught me to never give up and keep pushing forward. He mainly uses news apps and streaming apps to watch content when not at home.

Anne Lukas

I've learned to have an open mind and be open to different cultures, ideas, and opinions from my dad. He loves to use Readly - an app with tons of different magazines and newspapers - to read about different topics and stay up to date.

Ipek Hasturk

My dad has taught me to be the best version of myself no matter what I do. He uses games and social apps the most. I was surprised that he uses Twitter more than me - and more effectively, too!

Oliver Hill

I got my passion for traveling and backpacking to remote places from my dad. He mainly uses news apps but is also on stock trading and messaging apps.

Niall Condon

He's taught me that the best things in life are often the simplest. He uses Spotify the most often for sure—he has over 20 walking playlists - and still growing!

Maki Lokibe

Some of the things my dad has taught me are to look at things in the big picture, and that when you have stress, always get to the core of what’s causing it - face and defeat it. He uses LINE - a communication app, the most.

Anne Verhoeven

From a young age, my dad taught me that the world is my oyster. That confidence in me has fuelled my adventurous life, living and working all over the world. He's also taught me the value of hard work and persistence as key ingredients to achieving your goals. And that it's never too late to take a leap and go for it - his recent career pivot from antique dealer to podcaster is so inspiring! As a music buff, dad is obsessed with Spotify and probably clocks 8 hours a day on it.

Mae Mavroudi

My dad taught me to be happy and smile no matter what happens. Everything fades away pretty soon, so stay away from toxicity and be positive. He loves to use Duolingo.

Monaka Nukui

I learnt how to love and be passionate about what you're doing from my dad. He uses the NIKE Run Club most often.

Bubunyo Nyavor

The best lesson I've learned from my father is that if you haven't succeeded, it means you haven't tried hard enough. He loves to use the camera app - he takes pictures of everything and anything.

Let them know how much you care

While our dads or our beloved father figures deserve to be thanked and appreciated every day of the year, we don't always let them know how much they mean to us. So, on this Father's Day, even if you can't be with them in person, call them, share a playlist with songs that remind you of them, or send a funny joke to let them know just how grateful you are. Happy Father's Day!
