5% - 15% Off Select TVs
That's a huge difference between ratings, but the Google Play rating comes with 858 of them, overall. The Amazon Appstore rating, though, comes with 102 reviews, which is a lot more than the typical app in that marketplace.

A look at the reviews in the Amazon Appstore clears it all up. Not only does the app cost $4.99, which is pretty steep for a mobile app, it has in-app purchases, as well.

Based on some reviews, it appears the in-app purchases are relatively new, which could explain the app's high rating - despite a few complaints - in Google Play.

Let's Create: Pottery is also available in the iOS App Store for $4.99. There it has received 4.5 stars for the current version and 4.5 stars overall.

In the iOS App Store, you can see a list of the in-app purchases. It's probably similar to the Android version, so you can see what you're up against.

Since the app is free, we'd get it now.
