Top-Grossing iTunes Apps: Angry Birds Rio Leads in Debut Week

Apple's latest U.S. App Store game charts by revenue see Angry Birds Rio and Tap Zoo earning top iPhone sales, while We Rule Quests and Smurfs' Village emerge as big sellers on the iPad.
Every week, sister iOS gaming site FingerGaming rounds up the top-grossing iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store, and this chart is now available on Gamasutra. This week's U.S. revenue charts see Angry Birds Rio and Tap Zoo earning top iPhone sales, while We Rule Quests and Smurfs' Village 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 sales chart, which 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 and iPod Touch games are: 1. Angry Birds Rio ($0.99) 2. Tap Zoo (Free) 3. Angry Birds ($0.99) 4. Tiny Wings ($0.99) 5. Smurfs' Village (Free) 6. Zombie Farm (Free) 7. Words With Friends ($2.99) 8. We Rule Quests (Free) 9. Texas Poker (Free) 10. Infinity Blade ($6.99) Rovio leads the iPhone's revenue chart this week with a new Angry Birds spinoff based on the upcoming animated film Rio. Last week's chart champion Tap Zoo falls to second place, as the core Angry Birds app overtakes Tiny Wings for third. Ngmoco's free-to-play We Rule Quests takes seventh place following a recent anniversary update, while Words With Friends and Infinity Blade report steady sales in the face of competition from the free-to-play hits Smurfs' Village, Zombie Farm, and Texas Poker. Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad games: 1. Angry Birds Rio HD ($2.99) 2. Smurfs' Village (Free) 3. Angry Birds HD ($4.99) 4. We Rule Quests for iPad (Free) 5. Infinity Blade ($5.99) 6. Plants vs. Zombies HD ($6.99) 7. Scrabble for iPad ($9.99) 8. Real Racing 2 HD ($9.99) 9. Fruit Ninja HD ($2.99) 10. Angry Birds Seasons HD ($1.99) Angry Birds Rio also tops the iPad's charts in its premiere week, overtaking last week's sales leaders Smurfs' Village and Angry Birds HD. We Rule Quests sees a resurgence of popularity at fourth place, meanwhile, as PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies HD returns to the top ten following a weekend-long charity sale.
