A small list I made comparing the 25 “Top Paid” iPhone apps to the 25 “Top Grossing” ones (Finnish store, 10/09/2009 14:33):

Top Paid / Top Grossing

  1. Geared (0,79 €) / MobileNavigator Nordics (49,99 €)
  2. Playman Track & Field (0,79 €) / MobileNavigator Europe (99,99 €)
  3. Camera Genius (0,79 €) / TomTom Western Europe (99,99 €)
  4. Civilization Revolution (3,99 €) / TomTom Nordic (69,99 €)
  5. Pajatzo (0,79 €) / The Secret of Monkey Island: SE (5,99 €)
  6. Sonar Ruler (0,79 €) / CoPilot Live Europe (79,99 €)
  7. UNO (3,99 €) / UNO (3,99 €)
  8. I Am T-Pain (2,39 €) / TomTom U.S. & Canada (79,99 €)
  9. Moto X Mayhem (0,79 €) / Need For Speed Undercover (3,99 €)
  10. Need For Speed Undercover (3,99€) / Civilization Revolution (3,99 €)

Finland may not be the largest Phone app market out there, but there are nonetheless some interesting points to be made here. While GPS applications are clearly the highest grossing, the only apps that appear in both sections are games priced at 3,99 € (Civilization Revolution, UNO and Need For Speed Undercover). Not a single 1 $/0,79 € app or game is in the “Top Grossing” section, but cheaper games are beating more expensive but also more well-known game franchises in the “Top Paid” section.
