chorusChorus is an iPhone application that uses social data to help you find other iPhone applications — the idea is that you can find apps that you’d like by seeing the ones that your friends download and recommend. Now envIO, the company that created the app, has released some lists of Chorus’ top apps for November.

These lists obviously don’t reflect the entire audience of Apple’s App Store, nor are they meant to. Instead, they should give us some sense of which iPhone apps are more “viral,” i.e., are more likely to be shared among friends and to spread socially, the way apps do on sites like Facebook.

enVIO says the average Chorus user has 54 friends, and that its top apps lists are based on “thousands of user actions,” as well as 25,000 purchase and download attempts. You can check out Chorus at this iTunes link.
