Melhores Amigos and Meilleurs Amis are the same app, but in different languages. They ask users to invite all of their friends to see an integration with their top friends’ photos, statuses, birthdays, and more. A calendar app also appeared on our list in a pair, 내 캘린더 and ปฏิทินของฉัน, and operated similarly, in that users must invite all of their friends to the app before seeing their customized calendar.

Timeline apps that made the list include news site Digg, travel app Gogobot, and social browser RockMeltHey Tell is a mobile voice messenger app that last week added the ability to log in with Facebook, thus the sharp rise in users.

Games were led by the Arabic  مدينة الأهرامات, which had 100,000 MAU on any other game. Tabs on the list were interesting because one in particular, TradableBits, is optimized for Timeline. Many page tab applications have been losing daily and monthly active users as pages convert to Timeline, which does not allow default landing tabs. As a result, companies have been trying to adjust their strategy, as we’ve seen several band apps do.

All data in this post comes from our traffic tracking service, AppData. Stay tuned next week for our look at the top weekly gainers by monthly active users on Monday, the top weekly gainers by daily active users on Wednesday, and the top emerging apps on Friday.
