The Rotten Tomatoes Timeline app grew by 2.6 million MAU and Yahoo‘s social reading integration grew by 2.4 million MAU. Professional apps BranchOut and Identified both made the list. BranchOut is an Open Graph app, but Identified hasn’t taken advantage of Timeline and Ticker capabilities yet. İzlesene is a Turkish video sharing site that has integrated Open Graph.

A pair of quiz apps, Between You and Me and Truths About You, made the list. Then there was a TripAdvisor web integration that allows users to see the traveling activity of their friends.

All data in this post comes from our traffic tracking service, AppData. Stay tuned for our look at the top weekly gainers by daily active users on Wednesday, and the top emerging apps on Friday.
