    Thats pretty darn cheap. I assume it's some sort of drive to get people to register their credit card on android market?

    If it's only for 24 hours, it is just marketing. By increasing the visibility of the product by having more phones with it, they would hope the popularity of the game increases so more people will buy it *after* the sale. Likewise, the site is increasing its popularity as being the place to go for cool apps.

    Based on the early version I tried on my Android, it is 10 cents too much.

    Well, you are getting an alpha version. As pointed out in http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum...craft-pocket-edition-updated.html#post3357981 , they still have lots to add in the near future.

    While it is up to you whether you think it is worth it, think about the history of the Java version and how much has been added to it over time.
