Younews.in topped our list with 580,000 MAU; the app is basically a news feed on Facebook of popular stories. A Turkish news app,  Mynet, also made our list. 내 상위 통계 이번 주  was also very popular application, but essentially publishes Facebook statistics to the feed. There were a series of tab applications, one for documents, another to create a landing page and a few others.

Video applications were popular on our list, too. Socialcam allows users to capture and share videos for mobile devices, Social Video posts interesting videos to users’ feed every day, and Ustream allows users to share live broadcasts online.

Games on our list were led by Gangs of Boomtown. Many of the other games our titles we haven’t seen on our lists before.

Then there was Waze – Drive Social, which provide users weather-related traffic information. Finally, two applications that allow users to share virtual gifts with their friends, or to the stream: Friend Hug and Oferece uma rosa.

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.
