Quiz, Opinion and Top Friends for your Ning NetworkNing Apps
Since launching Ning Apps in September of this year, we’ve been working with both external developers and our internal team, to create Ning Apps that add new functionality to your Ning Network. We’re excited to announce the availability of three new Ning Apps: Quiz, Opinion and Top Friends. Let’s take a quick look at what you can do with each:

To install Top Friends, click here. Here’s how it looks:
There are additional Ning Apps on the way, so stay tuned to the Ning Blog, or head to the Developer Ning Network to learn more about developing on the Ning Platform.
