Every week, sister iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad 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 Call of Duty: Zombies and Infinity Blade leading iPhone and iPod Touch sales, while Osmos and Wheel of Fortune emerge as top 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.
