Draw Something by OMGPOP grew significantly as more people begin to play the Pictionary-like mobile game with their Facebook friends. There were a few virtual world and gambling games on the list, too.
As mentioned the WP Social Reader was a big gainer on our list, as well as Yahoo, which brings Open Graph integration to its news sites. The Open Graph apps for Rotten Tomatoes and Turkish video site İzlesene were popular, too.
Foursquare made our list for the first time in a while, likely as a result of new Open Graph integration that displays photos larger in News Feed and plots check-ins on the Timeline map.
SmoothTV is a canvas app to find videos. The app seems to have bursts of daily active users followed periods of complete inactivity. It does not appear to be available today, however.
