Games

Zynga’s latest hit Adventure World sends you on a number of quests, and manages to take a skyrocketing leap forward. The game leads with a 11,515,754 weekly growth total.

The social gaming app also successfully manages to oust the tough rival now found in second place – The Sims Social. The Electronic Arts game increased by 4,822,447 players.

Three places behind, 6wave’s Airport City has 755,224 new players constructing airports. Metrogame’s Coco Girl sends 532,493 shoppers on an imaginary spending spree, for a 17th place week.

The competition – Static HTML Iframe Tab: Custom Icons by Woobox – is found in the distant 14th spot, although; a 653,970 is certainly a noteworthy rally for the page building tool.

Friskylab’s 60photos is sitting pretty in fourth; 2,044,468 new adds give it another consistent showing. MyCalendar — Birthdays improves by amassing a 1,483,908 increase that jumps the app three places to sixth.

Posting scenes from Happy Potter seems to have become a hit, and fbpotterapps.com appears in 8th place, nabbing a 1,265,725 growth total.

The overly simplistic premise that is found in its name does not stop 764,765 application users from adding Write Your Name In Fire Alphabet, putting the app in 10th place.

The lone question application that in this week’s ranking, comes in 13th place, as 704,596 curious minds added 21 Preguntas.

Networking

For dating and online chatting on the social network, TopFace seems to be taking a stand as a hot spot for the singles out there. The application was added by 1,710,100 people, putting it in fifth place on our list.

It will be interesting to see whether schoolFeed can succeed as the school semester continues into the fall. The group project helper is on thin ice in the final position, and a 466,930 growth increase leaves it falling three more spots compared to last week.

Spotify ends the week in seventh place, down one spot from its debut last week in sixth. When all is said in done, 1,359,377 more synched accounts added to the flow of music selections showing up in people’s news feeds.

Giving you a basic grade on friend counts to status update totals, Profile Report Card leads what appears to be a new trend in applications,with a 794,928 weekly growth total — and that’s inclusive of people who’ve reported technical issues with the app.

Report Card is very similar in its features but ranks lower, at 15th place with 605,263 installs.
