First the contest-ey apps. There was Red Bull Home Tab,  topping our list with 310,000 MAU, but the app just appeared to be a tab on the Page. Then Amazon Sweepstakes with 260,000 MAU and Win Free ASOS For A Year with 130,000 MAU appeared to work with Connect.

JibJab continued to grow on our list despite the fact the app says it does not work, it saw 230,000 MAU this week. Halloween Treats with 120,000 MAU appears to allow users the chance to send a virtual gist to friends, but first it asks you to invite all your friends to use the app. Quora’s app works with Connect and grew by 120,000. Another broken app, Playboy – Bad Girls, grew by 110,000 MAU. Dating app Fbp grew by 110,000 and Pieces of Flair, which says it provides personalized buttons as virtual gifts, grew by 90,000 MAU.

Then the media apps.

Grooveshark grew by 130,000 MAU; the app uses Facebook Connect to allow users to utilize a separate website as a music player with which they can search and share music. Photo apps Pixable with 120,000 MAU, Profile Banner with 100,000 MAU and Big Photo with 90,000 MAU made the list. Finally, Breaking Dawn – Part 1, which is just a video app, saw 80,000 MAU.
