Games dominated our list this week, along with a few apps that are regular top gainers, such as No. 2 TripAdvisor™, No. 6 Instagram and No. 9 Are You Interested?.

No. 14 Snapchat is a notable addition this week. The mobile app allows users to take photos and share them with friends for a limited amount of time, usually just a few seconds. Users are notified when their friends view their photos or if they try to save the image by taking a screenshot. It’s a unique type of chat app that has taken off among some groups of friends. Since releasing an Android version of the app at the end of October, growth has taken off. Last week Snapchat passed 1 million Facebook-connected users, though it’s likely the app has a large percentage of users that do not connect with their social network account.
