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 Tap Zoo
and Restaurant Story
leading iPhone sales, while Modern Combat 2
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.
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. Angry Birds
2. Restaurant Story
3. Cut the Rope
4. Tap Zoo
5. Kingdoms at War
6. Haypi Kingdom
7. Baseball Superstars 2011
8. Fruit Ninja
9. Spider-Man: Total Mayhem
10. We Rule Quests
App Store customers gravitate toward free-to-play titles in today's chart results, as TeamLava's Restaurant Story
and Streetview Labs' Tap Zoo
rival reigning chart champ Angry Birds
with impressive microtransaction earnings.
A Thinking Ape's Kingdoms at War
and Haypi Kingdom
also emerge as top-grossing free-to-play titles, as Gamevil's Baseball Superstars 2011
