How do u use/activate seeds?

Also, are they planning to make the world bigger because the lite edition seems small in terms of map size?
Also, what is the Nether? I saw that the next update will add it to the pocket edition
Using an activating a seed on Minecraft PE is simple, you create a world and you'll be asked to name it and if you want to add a seed for the world generator. If you don't, you leave the box blank and hit create world. If you do, you type the seed in.

I believe they do plan on making the world bigger in the future, but not in the next update (0.5.0). In the full version, I don't think the world is any bigger than it is now, which is 255x255.

The Nether, on the PC version of Minecraft, is "hell." It has lava pools, and new mobs such as
zombie pigmen, magma cubes, and Ghasts. The Nether isn't being "added" to PE as far as my
speculations go, because reading the dev's tweets, theres something called a Nether reactor, which is very mysterious. All I can tell you, is, for the Nether addition, you'll be able to get the materials you would find in the Nether on PC on PE without actually going to the Nether using the reactor. The reactor consists of gold, iron, and diamond blocks, and in the next update, the only mob we'll be seeing from the Nether, as far as I know, is the zombie pigman. I reccomend to check out twitter.com/jbernhardsson or the Minecraft Wiki: Pocket Edition Upcoming Features pages.

November, and the update will add melons, mushroom farming, lots of bug fixes, zombie pigmen, glowstone, and a "nether reactor." Also the fog is less intense.

Can anyone tell me how to use/ build the nether reactor core?

So is the nether really just a room of obsidian? Lol holy snaps that is ...

Anyone else lagging a lot after the update?

No lag - I just figured out a weird little trick. After you kill the zombie pigmen in the nether, immediately destroy the nether core and everything will freeze. The blocks wills stay red and the obsidian never breaks down. It stays night time until you hit a bed. I've also decided to just hit the build the nether portal in the same spot just so it doesn't eat up space on the map.
I took some screenshots but I can't figure out how to load them up. Give it a try

You need to tap and hold a sheep with shears, and the wool should fall off, I believe
