What about for the Ipad? It has got more processing power and the larger screen would make for an easier interface. You could, for example, press on blocks to destroy them and use a two fingered touch to place them. Problem would be the software, but that's easily circumnavigated with a little forethought.
Even if it did come out as an app for the (Ipod??) I wouldn't get it. The graphics would be horrible, the actual game-concept/controls would also stink. Why not just wait til you get home to play on a computer?
yeah, that is a nice one, but the problem is that is not directly supported by mojang
(or acknowledged as far as i know), which means it could be a copy, leeching off the virality of minecraft,
using directly the name and logo,
Bad idea to even have it for any portable device. Why?:
Hard to make an absolute full version for it, even the new ipods have max 140mb of useable memory.
Would you really play minecraft for THAT long? You would probably get bored of the game after playing it so much and almost stop playing... It may not seem like it could happen to you, but for me I can't do anything for many hours a day every day and not get bored of it after a while.
And a lot of people have a jailbroken iPod that could download it for free, and use your account.
