Apps like My Best Friends of 2010 aren’t unique; for the most part they copy existing, larger titles. The other holiday apps on the list are all greeting apps: ·٠•●★●·Blessed New Year To My Friends·●★●•, Christmas Card, Happy New Year♥♥Especially for You, Merry Kissmas and Happy New Year! and New Year Greetings to all my Friends.

Famous Status Update is a lot like My Best Friends in that it looks over your wall activity to come up with a top activity, but it’s not tied to the holiday. The better name for the app might be (Your) Famous Status Update.

Komşu Çiftlik is the first of the games on the list, although oddly, its developer did not classify it as a game on Facebook. It’s a Turkish-language title, and one of the first polished sims we’ve seen in that language.
