 DragonVale  remains the top grossing game on iOS

DragonVale remains the top grossing game on iOS

February 1, 2012 | 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 Where's My Water? and DragonVale earning top iPhone sales, while Slotomania and Modern War 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. DragonVale (Free)
2. Poker by Zynga (Free)
3. Temple Run (Free)
4. Where's My Water? ($0.99)
5. World War (Free)
6. Scramble With Friends ($0.99)
7. Card Ace Casino (Free)
8. Slotomania (Free)
9. Stardom: The A-List (Free)
10. Kingdom Conquest (Free)

Former chart leader Temple Run falls to third place in the iPhone revenue charts after being overtaken by Poker by Zynga, as Backflip Studios' DragonVale keeps the top spot for the second week in a row.

Disney's Where's My Water? returns to the top ten at fourth place this week, as Glu's recently released social sim Stardom: The A-List claims ninth place in its debut week.

Here are this weeks top-grossing iPad applications:

1. DragonVale (Free)
2. Modern War (Free)
3. Battle Nations (Free)
4. Slotomania HD (Free)
5. Smurfs' Village (Free)
6. Slotomania (Free)
7. Card Ace Casino HD (Free)
8. Poker by Zynga (Free)
9. Mystery Manor: Hidden Adventure (Free)
10. Tiny Zoo Friends (Free)

DragonVale maintains its lead in the iPad charts, as Z2Live's Battle Nations and Funzio's Modern War trail close behind at second and third place.

Capcom's Smurfs' Village moves up to fifth place this week, meanwhile, as Playtika's Slotomania games remain strong sellers at fourth and sixth place.
