We're helping people live better lives—one mobile app at a time.
Started in 2008 by an original Google employee, MotherApp specialises in enterprise app development in Hong Kong. We consult with clients in Asia, North America and Europe. We are constantly exploring innovative mobile solutions to the problems people face every day.
We anticipate people's needs.
We're the first company to build an app to view TED video for iOS and Android – long before the official TED app was launched.
TED is a global conference dedicated to “ideas worth spreading”. The MotherApp team is a big fan of TED. We saw an opportunity to use mobile enterprise apps to spread TED inspired ideas even further. So in 2009, MotherApp built one of the earliest unofficial TED apps on for iPhone which we later extended to Android and Windows phones. This app for enterprise allows people to browse and watch all the TED videos right at their fingertips wherever they may be.
We design real life solutions.
We helped reconnect separated families through the love of reading together with FamLoop.
At MotherApp, we love reading. And we know that parents love to read aloud to their kids. We discovered modern parents were all to often at work or traveling and couldn't share that reading experience with their kids. Parents felt guilty and kids missed out on that special bonding time. So we created FamLoop — a family friendly network for parents and family members to take part in a child's learning activities, so they can always be reading and learning together.
We make our work matter.
We think slavery's a problem business can solve. We're creating mobile apps to help.
MeKong Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to fight against the business of slavery. Over 9 million people live in slavery in Asia. We developed pro bono a slavery victim identification app that allows law enforcement officials to question potential victims without speaking their language with the use of simple pre–recorded videos and questionnaires. This app helps officials identify, communicate, and rescue potential victims.

We’re an agile team of designers, developers, account managers, project managers and entrepreneurs focused on helping solve your toughest business challenges with mobile technology.
Chief Executive Officer
Ken Law witnessed firsthand that a company can make money and contribute to society at the same time. After earning his MS degree at Stanford, he joined Google as the first group of interns and became a full-time employee in 2000. While at Google, Ken developed a patented algorithm to find related pages. In 2007, Ken returned to Hong Kong and started MotherApp, which at that time the iPhone was not widely adopted and no Android devices even existed! When Ken isn’t steering the Mothership, he’s avidly reading and traveling.
