開心水果(开心水果) and La Ferme are both farming titles, but they are in, respectively, Chinese and French, and contain features mostly not common to English-language farming games (like stealing crops). Meanwhile, Warstorm is a rather geeky strategy game, and Mall Dreams is a glitzy shopping-oriented title. Further down the list, there are store management, sports and arcade games.

Non-game apps aren’t as well-represented on the list, but there are still a few. How old do you look? is the first. The app’s method for guessing ages isn’t clear, but it was actually somewhat accurate, coming within three years of my age. Fun Cards – Birthday & More!, at number eight, is a pretty standard greeting card app, with wall-posted cards for most occasions and an event calendar.

We’ve seen Who Missed You today?; the simple app, which picks one of your friends out for you to message, may cross a million MAU in the coming week. Finally, قارئ افكار الاصدقاء is a growing Arabic-language app that guesses at a favorite Facebook activity based on your profile.
