As you can see, the top gainers this week were Valentine’s Day gifting apps. Cool Animated Gifts, Manda un Beso Sexy!!, I Love Chocolate, and Send Love Hearts all grew by about 100% in the last 7 days, as Facebook users turned to Facebook Platform applications to send Valentine’s Day greetings and flirts to their friends.

In addition, SGN’s Free Gifts saw a major resurgence last week, growing by nearly 50%, or over a quarter of a million active users, during Valentine’s Day week.

Meanwhile, LOLApps’s Quiz Creator has been gaining major steam lately as well. The venture-funded company makes white label apps for users to create custom experiences for their friends.

In the French market, Jugement exploded this week by over 40%. It’s like Compare Friends – a simple way to “judge your friends and see what they think of you.”

Finally, Scriptures & Uplifting Messages is one of the few religion-themed applications that we’ve seen grow to this size so quickly. As you may expect, the application lets users send Bible verses to friends.
