Playdom has some distance to go before City of Wonder tops the highest point achieved previous hit city building game, Social City, but it’s now within four million MAU of that point — so it’s also not too far, considering the three million MAU gain over the past week.

At number two, Phrases has caught on with international users, allowing it to become truly huge. Although the stated purpose of the app is user-generated collections of quotes, much of its actual growth appears driven by short quizzes.

At number three, Are YOU Interested? continues its steady march toward dating domination. It’s not alone this week, though; Zoosk is on its way up again, having just moved past six million MAU.

The non-game apps on this week’s list are rounded out by Give Hearts, which is now Facebook’s largest gifting app, and Celebrity Birthdays, which tells users which celebrities they share birth dates with.
