Every week, Gamasutra rounds up the top-grossing iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store. This week's U.S. revenue charts see Draw Something
and Galaxy Empire
earning top iPhone sales, while Slotomania HD
and Sky Gamblers
emerge as big sellers on the iPad.
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. Draw Something
2. Draw Something Free
3. Poker by Zynga
4. Galaxy Empire
5. Texas Poker
7. Bejeweled Blitz
10. Kingdom Conquest
Paid and ad-supported versions of OMGPOP's hit social drawing title Draw Something
lead the App Store's revenue chart for the second week in a row, outperforming Poker by Zynga
and Tap4Fun's interplanetary colonization game Galaxy Empire
drops to sixth place after finishing third last week, meanwhile, as Sega's Kingdom Conquest
continues to generate steady microtransaction sales at tenth.
Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad applications:
1. Draw Something
2. Galaxy Empire
3. Slotomania HD
4. Poker by Zynga
6. Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy
