Video applications were popular on our list, too. Socialcam allows users to capture and share videos for mobile devices, Social Video posts interesting videos to users’ feed every day, and Ustream allows users to share live broadcasts online.

Games on our list were led by Gangs of Boomtown. Many of the other games our titles we haven’t seen on our lists before.

Then there was Waze – Drive Social, which provide users weather-related traffic information. Finally, two applications that allow users to share virtual gifts with their friends, or to the stream: Friend Hug and Oferece uma rosa.
