As mentioned, Digg topped our list; the Open Graph app shares stories you read to the stream and allows for easy sharing. There were also two non-English news apps, L’Express and the Russian Look At Me. Another very popular app was The Travel List Challenge, which is a quiz of places a user has traveled that publishes results to the stream and allows for interaction and comparison with the same quiz from a users’ friends. Quite a few games on our list were led by Playrix’s Township.

Elsewhere on the list were a pair of calendar apps, ปฏิทินของฉัน and ΗμερολόγιόΜου, which request users invite friends before providing the customized calendar. Virtual gift apps Friend Hug and Speziell Für Dich! ≧✯◡✯≦ allow users to send friends gifts, creating feed stories. Then there was a tab app, Static HTML… [Eighth Tab].

Social Video allows users to view and share videos to their stream, and posts videos to a users’ stream regularly when used.

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