As mentioned, Draw Something by OMGPOP topped our list of apps growing by DAU, with more than 6 million alone during the past week. Every other game paled in comparison to that growth. Then there were two types of birthday apps. American Greetings’ Birthday Calendar, which creates a calendar interface allowing users to select friends to whom to send e-cards and the MiCalendario – Cumpleaños or MyCalendar – Birthdays variety, which auto-selects all of a user’s friends for app requests.

Timeline apps on our list included Spotify, with a whopping 6.5 million DAU, and a good amount of growth in the United Kingdom. Formspring is back with its Timeline app and BranchOut has added a button allowing users to invite all their professional friends to the app with just one click.

Microsoft made the list twice, with its Bing app and Microsoft Live app, which asks users to consolidate their Facebook profile with their Windows Live profile. Other apps of note included Pandora, Yahoo and Family Tree,  a genealogy app that works better the more people you invite to use it.
