Made by VisionSync, Social Connect is a little different from the big dating app that has been tearing through the rankings lately, Badoo. Instead of using the popular Hot-or-Not style ranking screen, Social Connect tries to be more like a full-featured dating site with search, chat, full profiles and messaging.
Profile Banner is by MiniMax, a non-game app developer that has been doing quite well of late. Having a banner isn’t an intentional feature for Facebook, but it’s possible with some careful photo album manipulation, a trick that Profile Banner exploits quite well.
And the third big gainer on the list is Draw My Thing, an OMGPOP mini-game that the developer pulled over from its destination site with a few interesting adds, like the ability to make a wall post of your Pictionary-style attempts to sketch out words.
