Top-Grossing iOS Games: Tap Pet Hotel Overtakes Zynga Poker

Apple's latest U.S. App Store game charts by revenue see Tap Pet Hotel and Tiny Tower earning top iPhone sales, while Smurfs' Village and Tap Zoo rank as big sellers on the iPad.
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 Tap Pet Hotel and Tiny Tower earning top iPhone sales, while Smurfs' Village and Tap Zoo rank 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. Tap Pet Hotel (Free) 2. Zynga Poker (Free) 3. Angry Birds ($0.99) 4. Tap Zoo (Free) 5. Texas Poker (Free) 6. Top Girl (Free) 7. Tiny Tower (Free) 8. Smurfs' Village (Free) 9. World War (Free) 10. iMobsters (Free) Pocket Gems' social management sim Tap Pet Hotel unseats last week's chart champion Zynga Poker to become this week's highest-grossing iPhone app. Rovio's Angry Birds trails at third place, as Tap Zoo takes fourth. NimbleBit's Tiny Tower drops to seventh place after claiming fourth last week, while Storm8 returns to the top ten with iMobsters and World War. Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad applications: 1. Tap Pet Hotel (Free) 2. Smurfs' Village (Free) 3. Tap Zoo (Free) 4. Angry Birds HD ($4.99) 5. Flick Golf Extreme! HD ($4.99) 6.
