Every week, sister iPhone 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 Lego Harry Potter
and RAGE HD
leading iPhone sales, while Trucks and Skulls
emerges as a top seller 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.

1. Angry Birds
2. Smurfs' Village
