Every week, Gamasutra rounds up the top-grossing iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store. This week's U.S. revenue charts see Temple Run and DragonVale earning top iPhone sales, while Battle Nations and Modern War emerge as big sellers on the iPad. These charts allow end users to see who is making the most money on the App Store that day. It differs significantly from the Top 10 Games chart, which is ranked by sales, and therefore is dominated by lower-priced titles that sell more copies. Data comes courtesy of Apple's public sales information. All titles in the App Store's "Games" category are considered in chart rankings. This week's top-grossing iPhone titles are: 1. DragonVale (Free) 2. Temple Run (Free) 3. Poker by Zynga (Free) 4. Scramble With Friends ($0.99) 5. Slotomania (Free) 6. Smash Cops ($2.99) 7. Bejeweled Blitz (Free) 8. World War (Free) 9. Kingdom Conquest (Free) 10. Tiny Tower (Free) Backflip Studios' DragonVale overtakes last week's chart champion Temple Run to become this week's highest-grossing iPhone app, as Poker by Zynga continues to generate steady microtransaction sales at third place. Newcomer Scramble With Friends earns fourth place in today's chart results, while Playtika's slot machine sim Slotomania and Hutch's police chase title Smash Cops enter the top ten at fifth and sixth place. Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad applications: 1. DragonVale (Free) 2. Battle Nations (Free) 3. Modern War (Free) 4. Slotomania HD (Free) 5. Poker by Zynga (Free) 6. Slotomania (Free) 7. Mystery Manor: Hidden Adventure (Free) 8. The Sims: FreePlay (Free) 9. Smurfs' Village (Free) 10. Card Ace Casino HD (Free) DragonVale also heads up the iPad charts, fending off competition from Z2Live's Battle Nations and Funzio's Modern War. The Slotomania series captures two spots in this week's rankings, while Game Insight's hidden object game Mystery Manor: Hidden Adventure returns to the top ten at seventh place.
