    Android Market Sale

    Android market has a bit of a sale on today. You can get the full Minecraft app for a measly 10p, as well as some other paid apps.

    Really? I don't think Google has the power to do that? I thought you had to set up a Google shopping account, and it used that when you click buy.

    I'm getting the same thing. Would be much easier if you can add the cost of apps to your phone bill.

    my vodafone contract makes me register a credit/debit card with market and then bills me when i purchase something.

    However, it doesn't bill me every time. If i buy several cheap apps within a couple of hours of each other it lumps them all together, but if i buy a 60p reference app, it doesn't charge me untill i buy something more expensive. so far i have an engineering reference app that cost 65p that i've not been charged for, for 4 months because i haven't bought anything else!

    Are the people paying via bill using the 'Android Marketplace' or one provided by their operators? I have 3 appstores on my phone. The Android Marketplace (paid for via google account), Samsung Apps and Orange Apps (neither of which I have purchased from, but assume they might charge via phonebill.
