The world didnt seem bigger than before. The update is good, finally theres crafting albeit somewhat limited in the things you can make but its a step in the right direction and or sure makes things a lot more interesting in survival mode.

I'm worried about the in-game material amounts being balanced enough with such a small landscape. Do trees grow on their own or is there a limit to how much wood you can get? Is there enough coal to make a decent amount of torches? Etc...

The fact that Minecraft PE has been out for months and just now includes CRAFTING and still doesn't have real cave systems is just laughable. It's like releasing an FPS and not including the guns.

Add in the fact that the world is TINY and Mojang is slanging this woefully incomplete shizzy for 7 bucks, and it all becomes even more hilarious.

Hi all.. I've never played MineCraft and just downloaded this edition..

I'm reading that there is crafting, but unsure of how to do this? Mind you, I'm not playing survival so I don't know if that comes into play.

Also, for flying, I can get into that mode but can't seem to ascend/ descend?

Finally.. I think I would really like this, would you guys recommend that I buy this for my mac (slightly off topic I know), and how much would it cost? Any ideas?

Thanks all..

Only stone pick axes ?

I've only just picked up the pocket edition and haven't yet spent much time with it but, from what i can tell, there are only wooden and stone tools so far ?

People are right in saying this pricey title is severely lacking, when compared to the PC version. However, this is the future of the game for people like me, who have stopped using computers. Thanks to this Pocket Edition, I am atleast able to enjoy some form of Minecraft.

Probably. Christ, it took them six months to add CRAFTING to Minecraft PE. Probably will take them another six to add actual caves or a world larger than a couple hundred blocks square. (How big is it, anyways? 128x128? 256x256?)

Mojang is sitting on literally millions of dollars and still ships a laughably incomplete game as a seven dollar product and then updates it at a glacial pace?! Fudge that noise. Buy Junk Jack.

Id have to agree. For a company like Mojang, I would expect better.
