Snaptu’s Facebook for Every Phone topped the list with a whopping 1.1 million DAU this week, outpacing almost any other app but for Spotify with 1.1 million DAU. We reported earlier this week that Spotify has been using popular musical artists to award accounts.

Everything else varied. 60photos grew by 619,200 DAU; the app basically posts tons of feed stories as users rate their friends’ photos. MyCalendar in English with 313,700 DAU grew significantly over last week and its German counterpart, MeinKalender, grew by 125,400 DAU. Social Statistics jumped by 271,300 DAU this week; it’s an app that publishes your “top friends.” A quiz app that publishes copious feed stories, 21 questions, saw 232,400 DAU this week. Then there was Welcome tab app for Pages with 121,000 DAU and a profile banner app, Banner de perfil en espagnol, with 101,900 DAU.

There were horoscope-like apps; these tend to post to a user’s feed daily, that’s where they generate virality. Daily Horoscope grew by 186,500 DAU, Astrology by 125,100 DAU and Your Luck [daily] by 121,300 DAU.

Rounding out the list were apps from big names:  Yahoo with 240,000 DAU, Windows Live Messenger with 141,200 DAU and YouTube with 132,200 DAU.
