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
2. Bejeweled 2
3. Iron Man 2
4. Plants vs. Zombies
5. Skate It
6. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
7. Doodle Jump
8. Words With Friends
9. Zombie Infection
Clickgamer's Angry Birds
