Android Marketplace has just pushed its 10 billionth download. To celebrate, Google is launching 10 days of offers, with "top premium apps" being priced at only 10 cents each. Of course, games are a big part of the app ecosystem, and you'll be able to pick up quite a number of bargains today, like Minecraft: Pocket Edition for a dime.

The Android version of Minecraft won't give you the full experience of its PC brethren, but for ten cents, it's really quite hard to complain. Other games included in today's promotion are: Asphalt 6, Great Little War Game, and Fieldrunners HD.

There are some great apps on sale as well. We recommend SoundHound Infinity and SwiftKey X. Check out all the bargains directly on your phone, or here.

      I bought most of these because one dime, but felt kind of stupid making 7 separate 10 cent transactions one after the other. Google needs to add a shopping cart.

        This also.

        Normally it's not an issue, because I do tend to do single transactions, but it would save them transaction fees if nothing else.

      Seems kind of silly not to buy the top apps for only 1$ ? right?

        Not $1, $0.10

            Yes. 10 apps a day each for 10 cents.. So 10 apps for a dollar.

        ^^ This is why I bought Minecraft even though i don't want it installed right now.

        I got it for $0.10. Regardless of how long it stays on sale, regardless of where the price goes from here, I can be pretty sure it'll never be cheaper than $0.10 unless its free. And I'm ok with eating the dime.

        I saw it on their landing page just now, but I didn't purchase it.
