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 Minecraft: Pocket Edition
and Amazing Breaker
earning top iPhone sales, while Battle Nations
and Smurfs' Village
emerge as big sellers on the iPad.
