Tag Friends is a modification of the popular friend quiz format. Where a friend quiz has you answer a question about your friend, which is posted to their wall, Tag Friends simplifies the process even further by just asking you to click on a tag. Game of Truth, the second fastest-growing non-game app, does much the same thing with yes / no questions.
Island God is a game that’s quite similar to GodFinger, an iPhone game that was popular several months back. In Island God, which is by Digital Chocolate, you take control of a tiny island on which your worshipers can build various structures. There are plenty of interesting games, but we’ll cover the rest this morning at Inside Social Games.
Although neither Tag Friends nor Game of Truth gives the friend quiz a really unique spin, friend.ly actually does. It still asks you questions, though about your own opinions. The really interesting part, though, is that these questions are shared out among the general userbase of friend.ly. The app bills itself as a way to find new friends.
