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 Tetris
edging out Splinter Cell: Conviction
, as Civilization Revolution
competes with Scrabble
and Real Racing HD
in iPad 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.

1. Angry Birds
3. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction
4. Bejeweled 2
5. Fruit Ninja
7. The Sims 3
9. Plants vs. Zombies
10. World War v2.0
This week's chart features a number of Electronic Arts-published titles, thanks to a recent round of price drops. EA's Tetris, Battleship, The Sims 3
, and Scrabble
rank among today's top-grossing titles, while Clickgamer's Angry Birds
