DoAlbums helps users create photo albums on Facebook by uploading photos from their computers or Instagram accounts. Video apps were popular as well. There was Polish video site Vidd, group video chat app ooVoo and mobile video effects app GifBoom.

House M.D.: Critical Cases led the games, and quiz apps continue to be popular. Cute Smileys grew by postings a photo to the stream of a user’s name designed with smiley faces. Crush Meter tells a user which of their friends has a “crush” on them.

Finally, online community Waze – Drive Social, page app  The Fan Machine and Chinese music platform KKBOX (not available in the U.S.) rounded out our list.
