Who’s making money from free on iPhone

By on January 17, 2011

After the report that 34 of the top-grossing Apps on iPhone were free to play, I went to have a look myself.

(The only place I can find this data is in iTunes. If anyone knows where it is on the web, please let me know.)

I’ve marked the free ones so that you can see for yourself. Congratulations to Tap Zoo at #2. It’s always impressive when a free-to-play game is right at the top of the Top Grossing list.

I also note that two free-to-play games are grossing more than Infinity Blade.
