No. 2 was Disney’s Ghosts of Mistwood, which reached 500,000 MAU this week. Zynga’s The Ville is just short of the milestone, coming in at No. 3. Zynga’s Ruby Blast came in at No. 14.

No. 4 was GifBoom, an app for iPhone and Android allows users to create animated gifs and share them on the social network. No. 6 Via.Me is another mobile app, this one allows users to share both photos and videos.

No. 8 Crazy Penguin Wars is a multiplayer shooter game for the Facebook canvas. No. 9 GiveMeFootball is a social reader app for Football news. No. 18 UFC.TV App is a website integration for the UFC, which uses Facebook login but not Open Graph, as it doesn’t appear to share user activity to Timeline.

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.
