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.
