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 EA's Rock Band challenge Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the top chart spot, as Bejeweled 2 overtakes The Sims 3 in daily sales.

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. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars ($9.99)
2. Rock Band ($6.99)
3. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies ($9.99)
4. Bejeweled 2 ($2.99)
5. The Sims 3 ($6.99)
6. Doodle Jump ($0.99)
7. Tetris ($2.99)
8. The Game of Life: Classic Edition ($2.99)
9. Madden NFL 10 ($6.99)
10. Words With Friends ($2.99)

Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars tops App Store sales across all categories for the second week in a row. EA's iPhone version of Rock Band moves up to second place following the recent release of a free demo version, pushing Activision's former chart leader Call of Duty: World at War Zombies to third place.

PopCap's Bejeweled 2 moves up past Electronic Arts' The Sims 3 in today's rankings, as Lima Sky's 99-cent Doodle Jump settles in at sixth place after taking fifth last week.

EA's Tetris and The Game of Life: Classic Edition also see slight drops in popularity, finishing at seventh and eighth place. Madden NFL 10 follows at ninth, as Newtoy's Scrabble-like multiplayer word game Words With Friends enters the chart at tenth place.
