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 Dream Zoo
and Amazing Breaker
earning top iPhone sales, while Battle Nations
remain 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.

1. Poker by Zynga
2. Dream Zoo
3. Amazing Breaker
4. Angry Birds
5. Texas Poker
6. Smurfs' Village
7. My Town 2
