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 Sonic the Hedgehog 2
and Gameloft's Ultimate Spider-Man
leading sales on the iPhone, as Angry Birds HD
and Medieval HD
top the iPad charts.
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.
