My Photos+ with 590,000 MAU, Mejores Amigos with 410,000 MAU, My Photos with 190,000 MAU and the Italian version of this latter app, Le Mie Foto with 100,000 MAU, were basically the same. They presented users with a photo gallery of their friends’ photos, allowing them to Like or save them. Liking them publishes a feed story. Then there was a leftover Halloween app, Your Fa.ce in a Hole | Tu Cara en un Hueco, with 180,000 MAU, and the app allowed users to add their own photos, or those of their friends, to Halloween costumes, then published the photo to the stream. Finally there was Pixable with 80,000 MAU.

The next most interesting addition to our list this week was Washington Post Social Reader, which grew by 80,000 MAU. The rest of the list was a mixed bag of different types of apps.

Horoscopes grew by 340,000 MAU and asks users to sign up for daily horoscope Wall posts. The Red Bull Home Tab grew by 270,000 MAU. ShareAndTell.com grew by 250,000 MAU and appeared to be little else than a website on a tab that then asks users to login via Connect. Endomondo with 230,000 MAU and Chat Pro by mSonar with 170,000 MAU were not available to review.

The Puss in Boots Fan Tab grew by 110,000 MAU. Auto Collect Games Bonuses grew by 100,000 MAU and is an app that allows you to see all your game bonuses in one interface and then collect them at once. Kraft’s Huddle To Fight Hunger also grew 100,000 MAU and basically is an app on the Page that lets you Like it to donate a meal for charity. Finally there was Halloween Treats with 90,000 MAU; this is one of those apps that asks you to invite all your friends to use the app before it does anything. It also asks you to sign up for an email list.
