My son bought this thinking it was minecraft, it's shameful someone would try to sell this for .99 much less 2.99. If anything, this taught him to let mom look at it. I hope ripping off an 11 year old for his birthday money makes it worth the sham for the person selling this.

All this is is photo stills of minecraft, posted here as "mindcraft" in the hopes of taking advantage of the purchaser. There are a lot of these bogus shams out there, so be careful. I hope people look at the comments written. The 5 star rating comes from someone who admits that he didn't buy it and noticed it was a fraud and is laughing at the others who fell for it...not sure why successfully ripping off people would warrant 5 stars and laughter?

In our case, it was my CHILD who purchased it after handing me the money--doing so after he bought skins for his minecraft application on here and it worked great. No child expects the world to work this way--but lesson learned. We were naive, I just hoped to stop others from the same problem. A sad case of lesson learned for my child. Be sure you have the real game, or real skins. They are on here, and those are worth it. My son has spent hours enjoying them!

This app says it is "Min*D*craft" but shows a picture saying "Min*E*craft" (emphasis on D vs E - mine), which seems to exist - basically - to fool consumers into thinking they are getting the real Minecraft app from Mojang. (It even has the "Pocket Edition" slogan in the title like the real game.) Instead, this app is a series of pictures and not a game at all.

Amazon needs to have better quality controls. How long until a devloper or company that owns the copyright decides that Amazon and Google Play are responsible for profiting off the sale of apps that infringe on copyrights? And how long before Amazon customers hold Amazon accountable for selling them products that seem to blatently mislead and deceive? I'm voting this down because I want Amazon to clean up the store. We should be able to buy products that clearly state what they are and actually BE those things. I shouldn't have to worry about buying a "game" that turns out to be a series of pictures.

How is this not illegal? According to Wikipedia, Fair Use "permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders. Examples of fair use include commentary, search engines, criticism, news reporting, research, teaching, library archiving and scholarship." The developer says this app is for educational purposes. I'm pretty sure that isn't the case, although I'm not a lawyer.

If you want to overpay for an app ($2.99?!) to look at pictures from Minecraft then go ahead and buy this. But that's all you'll get.

This is a ripoff. I'm going to find out how to hold the creator legally accountable. I'm tired of these people taking advantage.
