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
and The Heist
earning top iPhone sales, while Smurfs' Village
and Casey's Contraptions
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. Texas Poker
2. Zynga Poker
3. Infinity Blade
4. The Heist
5. Tap Pet Hotel
6. Tap Zoo
7. Angry Birds
8. Words With Friends
