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 Draw Something
and Angry Birds Space
earning top iPhone sales, while DragonVale
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. Angry Birds Space
2. Draw Something
4. Poker by Zynga
5. Texas Poker
6. Draw Something Free
7. Galaxy Empire
9. Kingdoms of Camelot
10. Bejeweled Blitz
Rovio's recently released Angry Birds Space
leads over OMGPOP's former chart champion Draw Something
in today's iPhone revenue charts, as Backflip's DragonVale
recovers to claim third place after dropping to sixth last week.
The free ad-supported version of Draw Something
continues to generate a steady stream of microtransaction revenue at sixth place, while Kabam's recently upgraded Kingdoms of Camelot
beats Bejeweled Blitz
for ninth place in this week's rankings.
Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad applications:
1. Angry Birds Space HD
3. Modern War
4. Draw Something
5. Poker by Zynga
6. Kingdoms of Camelot
7. Slotomania HD

Angry Birds Space
also leads the iPad charts this week, reporting greater earnings than DragonVale
and Funzio's multiplayer war sim Modern War
falls to fourth place after heading up last week's chart results, while Kingdoms of Camelot
emerges as a popular pick in the face of competition from longtime favorites Smurfs' Village
