Spotify grew by more than 1 million DAU; the app generates feed and Ticker stories every time it’s used. Other Open Graph apps that automatically generate stories included: Yahoo, Pinterest, Grooveshark and Bing.

The greeting card applications on the list all work similarly: the apps offer users the chance to be reminded of friends’ birthdays or a personalized calendar of birthdays. Daily Horoscope offers users a daily post, offers a pop-up of reminders for users’ friends birthdays, and then asks users to share the app with friends.

21 questions and Between You and Me are quiz apps that generate feed and ticker stories. Finally there was schoolFeed, which creates an interface on Facebook that highlights high school friends. Games that made the list ranged from Words With Friends and Bubble Witch Saga to Texas HoldEm Poker and Ninja Saga.

All data in this post comes from our traffic tracking service, AppData. Stay tuned for our look at the top emerging apps on Friday.
