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 Infinity Blade II
earning top iPhone sales, while Battle Nations
and Angry Birds HD
remain 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. Infinity Blade II
2. Poker by Zynga
4. Dream Zoo
5. Words WIth Friends
6. Modern War
7. Tiny Tower
8. Batman Arkham City Lockdown
9. Angry Birds
10. Family Feud & Friends
Though it no longer ranks as a top App Store title in terms of units sold
, Chair Entertainment's Infinity Blade II
remains the iPhone's top revenue earner in its second week of release, beating the microtransaction-supported Poker by Zynga
and Backflip's DragonVale
