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 Draw Something
and Galaxy Empire
earning top iPhone sales, while DragonVale
and Angry Birds Space
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.

1. Draw Something
2. Galaxy Empire
3. Angry Birds Space
4. Poker by Zynga
6. Texas Poker
8. Draw Something Free
9. Bejeweled Blitz
10. Clear Vision (17+)
