A number of canvas-based photo apps got a lift this week, including No. 2 Photo Love, No. 4 Photo Contest, No. 10 Photo Roll and No. 17 Photo Passion.

NOOK by Barnes & Noble is on the list at No. 5 after returning to DAU levels it was at earlier in the month. The e-reader fell from 460,000 DAU to 7,000 DAU last week possibly due to a reporting error.

Zynga’s FarmVille 2 is No. 8, crossing 300,000 DAU after launching on Sept. 5.
