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 Smurfs' Village and iMobsters earning top iPhone sales, while My Country and DragonVale 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. Poker by Zynga (Free) 2. DragonVale (Free) 3. Smurfs' Village (Free) 4. Angry Birds ($0.99) 5. iMobsters (Free) 6. Angry Birds Seasons ($0.99) 7. Texas Poker (Free) 8. Crime City (Free) 9. Tap Fish 2 (Free) 10. Bejeweled 2 + Blitz ($0.99) Poker by Zynga and Backflip Studios' DragonVale claim top honors in the iPhone's revenue charts for the third week in a row. Capcom's Smurfs' Village returns to the top ten at third place following a recent Halloween-themed update, as Storm8's iMobsters trails Angry Birds at fifth. Recent top earners Scribblenauts Remix and Infinity Blade disappear from this week's rankings, meanwhile, as microtransaction-supported titles like Tap Fish 2, Crime City, and Texas Poker remain popular favorites in the latter half of the top ten. Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad applications: 1. Smurfs' Village (Free) 2. My Country (Free) 3. DragonVale (Free) 4. Tap Pet Hotel (Free) 5. Angry Birds HD ($4.99) 6. Poker by Zynga (Free) 7. Angry Birds Seasons ($1.99) 8. Contract Killer: Zombies (Free) 9. We Rule Deluxe for iPad (Free) 10. Tiny Zoo Friends (Free) Smurfs' Village climbs to the top of the iPad's charts after finishing at third place last week, overtaking former chart leaders My Country and DragonVale. Pocket Gems' Tap Pet Hotel beats Angry Birds HD for fourth place, while Ngmoco's We Rule Deluxe for iPad ranks in ahead of Tiny Zoo Friends at ninth.
