Top-Grossing iTunes Apps: Skate It, Zombie Infection Enter iPhone Charts

Apple's latest U.S. App Store game charts by revenue see Skate It and Gameloft's Zombie Infection debut in the iPhone charts, while Scrabble leads iPad game sales -- Top 10 charts within.
Every week, sister iPhone 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 EA's Skate It and Gameloft's Zombie Infection debut in the iPhone charts, while Scrabble leads iPad game sales. 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 ($0.99) 2. Bejeweled 2 ($2.99) 3. Iron Man 2 ($6.99) 4. Plants vs. Zombies ($2.99) 5. Skate It ($6.99) 6. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies ($9.99) 7. Doodle Jump ($0.99) 8. Words With Friends ($2.99) 9. Zombie Infection ($6.99) 10. Tetris ($4.99) Clickgamer's Angry Birds continues its month-long reign as the App Store's highest-grossing game app, as PopCap's Bejeweled 2 moves up to second place after taking fourth last week. Gameloft's Iron Man 2 drops to third place in today's results, but otherwise remains a strong seller. EA's skateboarding sim Skate It finishes its debut week at fifth place, while Gameloft's Zombie Infection enters the chart behind Doodle Jump and Words With Friends at ninth place. Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad applications: 1. Scrabble for iPad ($9.99) 2. Real Racing HD ($9.99) 3. Plants vs. Zombies HD ($9.99) 4. Pinball HD ($2.99) 5. Angry Birds HD ($4.99) 6. Brothers in Arms 2: Global Front HD ($7.99) 7. Need for Speed Shift for iPad ($9.99) 8. Flight Control HD ($4.99) 9. Iron Man 2 for iPad ($9.99) 10. X-Plane for iPad ($9.99) EA's Scrabble overtakes Firemint's Real Racing HD for top honors in today's iPad sales chart. PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies HD creeps up to third, knocking Gameprom's Pinball HD to fourth place. Gameloft's Brothers in Arms 2 enters the chart at sixth place, as the iPad version of EA's Need for Speed Shift sees a jump in popularity after dropping in price to $9.99. A recent content update puts Firemint's Flight Control HD at eighth place, while Laminar's X-Plane closes out today's results at tenth.
