AppData has released figures today, showing the Daily Average Users of Facebook titles, and Zynga tops the list with five: CityVille, CastleVille, FarmVille, Texas HoldEm Poker, and Words With Friends. Good news for the firm, which is getting ready to launch its initial public offering. Figures range from 10 million for CityVille to 5.7 million for Words With Friends, with the later gaining 500,000 users in the last week alone.
