Every week, sister iPhone site FingerGaming rounds up the top-grossing iPhone and iPod Touch applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store, and this chart is now available on Gamasutra.

This week's U.S. iPhone revenue charts see the Tapulous-developed Riddim Ribbon surpass Doodle Jump in its debut week, as Assassin's Creed II rivals Chinatown Wars in daily sales numbers.

This chart allows 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 U.S. App Store titles are:

1. Rock Band ($6.99)
2. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies ($9.99)
3. Bejeweled 2 ($2.99)
4. Riddim Ribbon feat. The Black Eyed Peas ($2.99)
5. Doodle Jump ($0.99)
6. The Sims 3 ($6.99)
7. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars ($9.99)
8. Assassin's Creed II: Discovery ($6.99)
9. All-in-1 Gamebox ($0.99)
10. Words With Friends ($2.99)

Electronic Arts' Rock Band takes the top chart spot for the second week in a row, as Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies moves up past PopCap's puzzler Bejeweled 2 to place second.

Tap Tap Revenge developer Tapulous has a chart hit this week with its recently debuted rhythm-action title Riddim Ribbon, which finishes ahead of Lima Sky's popular Doodle Jump in today's rankings.

Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars has seen a sharp drop in popularity, meanwhile, ending up at seventh place after taking third in last week's charts.

Finishing up this week's results, Ubisoft's stealth platformer Assassin's Creed II: Discovery makes its chart debut at eighth, as Triniti Interactive's app compilation All-in-1 Gamebox pushes past Newtoy's Words With Friends to take ninth place.
