Applications on our list for the top 20 emerging Facebook apps by monthly active users this week were mostly games, then the apps that weren’t games, varied from a mobile Facebook app, a photo integration with TripAdvisor, a Page app and a few friend quizzes.
The apps on our list grew from between 137,900 and 556,100 MAU, based on AppData, our data tracking service covering traffic growth for apps on Facebook. All in all, it was a pretty typical week for the emerging category, which we define as apps that grew between 100,000 and 1 million in the past week.

Facebook for Every Phone is an app from Snaptu that is a mobile Facebook app, growing by 556,100 MAU this week. Sayfa Önerme grew by 193,100 MAU; the app is for a non-profit, is in Turkish, and takes the user to a tab with embedded videos to view, and also invites the user to Like the Page. Welcome is an app that grew by 161,600 MAU and helps Page administrators add a welcome tab to their Page.
Chatterbox with 164,200 MAU and Seçim Anketi 141,700 MAU. are apps that allow users to answer questions about their friends, publish the answers to the Wall and thus grow virally. The one difference is that Seçim Anketi, called Yes or No in its English version, asks the user to post to your Wall daily.
Finally, TripAdvisor TripWow is a really interactive and interesting app that takes a user’s photos, turns them into a 3-minute video, accompanied by music and animations. The main point of the app, which grew by 141,800 MAU, is to be such a cool video that users share it to their stream — not hard to do given how engaging the video is.
