Top-Grossing iOS Games:  Tiny Tower  Climbs iPhone and iPad Charts

Top-Grossing iOS Games: Tiny Tower Climbs iPhone and iPad Charts

July 6, 2011 | By Danny Cowan

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 Zynga Poker and Tiny Tower earning top iPhone sales, while Smurfs' Village and Tap Pet Hotel 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. Zynga Poker (Free)
2. Tap Pet Hotel (Free)
3. Angry Birds ($0.99)
4. Tiny Tower (Free)
5. Tap Zoo (Free)
6. Top Girl (Free)
7. Texas Poker (Free)
8. Smurfs' Village (Free)
9. Zombie Farm (Free)
10. Tiny Zoo (Free)

Zynga Poker reclaims top honors in the iPhone's revenue charts after being overtaken last week by FarmVille, as Tap Pet Hotel and Angry Birds remain top earners at second and third place.

NimbleBit's Tiny Tower climbs the charts after debuting at ninth place last week, and finishes ahead of Pocket Gems' Tap Zoo and Crowdstar's Top Girl in today's results.

Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad applications:

1. Smurfs' Village (Free)
2. Tap Pet Hotel (Free)
3. Monopoly for iPad ($0.99)
4. Angry Birds HD ($4.99)
5. Tiny Tower (Free)
6. Tap Zoo (Free)
7. Tiny Zoo (Free)
8. NBA Jam for iPad ($0.99)
9. Texas Poker (Free)
10. Fashion Story (Free)

Ngmoco's We Rule Deluxe disappears from the iPad's top ten after topping the charts last week, while Capcom's Smurfs' Village and Pocket Gems' Tap Pet Hotel rise up to take the top two spots in today's results.

EA finds chart success after dropping the price of Monopoly and NBA Jam, as Tiny Tower competes with the free-to-play sim titles Tap Zoo and Tiny Zoo.
