Every week, sister iOS games site FingerGaming
rounds up the top-grossing iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad games, 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 Tap Zoo
and Angry Birds Rio
earning top iPhone sales, while Contract Killer
and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12
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 game sales chart, which is dominated by lower-priced titles that sell more copies.

1. Tap Zoo

3. Angry Birds
4. Words With Friends
5. Tiny Wings
6. Smurfs' Village
7. Fashion Story
