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 Angry Birds
and Doodle Defense
earning top iPhone sales, while World of Goo
and Dungeon Hunter 2 HD
emerge as big sellers on the iPad.
