Questions About Minecraft PE

I will put 10 bucks on my iTunes later, and I've been thinking about getting Minecraft PE for a while. I wasn't willing to spend to spend 7 dollars if it isn't worth it. Answering my questions would really help me choose whether I should buy it or not?

-How much space does it take up? I only have 8GB, and only have about 339MB left
-Can you craft lots of things?
-Is there any technical issues on iPhone 4? Like lag or constant crashing?
-No need to compare this PE to the PC/360 edition, but think about it as it's own game. Be honest: is it worth $7? I'm trying to be careful with my money.

Thanks in advance.

Answer: uhh, check it out yourself bro, get to appstore. I remember it to be super light, less than 30MB

-Can you craft lots of things?
Answer: damn lots of thing, u will be drown in blocks

-Is there any technical issues on iPhone 4? Like lag or constant crashing?
Answer: no idea, i m on ipod gen4

-No need to compare this PE to the PC/360 edition, but think about it as it's own game. Be honest: is it worth $7? I'm trying to be careful with my money.

Answer: ? Worth 7 bucks compare to what? Do u need the money for other game?

My install is 4.1 MB installed with a good handful of worlds. It's pretty small.

You can craft all sorts of things. The crafting UI is menu driven, more like the 360 version.

Runs great on my iPhone4. Like butter with fancy graphics off, a tad slower with them on.

It's well worth it if you want to play the real thing - it has the same 'feel' as the PC version. Survival mode is well fleshed out, more so than I ever expected (I thought it would be geared more towards creative, as it was originally.) Multiplayer is great if you have someone to play with (and online is coming soon)

The one thing I don't like about it is world size - it's a measly 128x128 blocks. Enough to play, but you can't really explore.

If you want a Minecraft experience on iOS, but aren't dead set on the real thing I would recommend checking out some of these:

Eden: World Builder - Creative mode only, but has HUGE worlds, and runs fast. You can easily trade worlds online as well.

Junk Jack - Best 2D Minecraft I've played on any platform, with controls built for a touch screen from the ground up, and LOTS to build & do. Creative and Survival modes are present & you can manually transfer worlds through File Sharing in iTunes.

Both of these have great developers, have received numerous updates and will cost you considerably less than MC:PE.
