BO.LT, Circle, Tango, MyFitnessPal, more on this week’s emerging Facebook apps

Page tab customization app Static HTML… [Ninth Tab] led our list of emerging Facebook applications by monthly active users this week with 153 percent gain.

We define emerging applications as those that ended with between 100,000 and 1 million MAU in the past week. This week’s top apps grew between 110,000 and 460,000 MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook.

BO.LT debuted at No. 4, picking up 219,000 MAU. The app is a Pinterest-esque site where users can share and save items from around the web.

Mobile app integrations were also popular this week. No. 5 Circle – Find Nearby Friends for Android and iOS helps users locate their friends and discover new people nearby. No. 6 WhatsApp is a cross-platform messaging app that has been on our list for a few weeks, as has No. 7 Flickr with its new iPhone app.

No. 10 Tango is a free app that lets users make free calls and texts. No. 13 MyFitnessPal is available for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone. No. 14 Viddy is slowly rising after plummeting from a peak of nearly 37 million MAU in mid-2012.
