Pocket Edition Sneak Peek

Daniel Kaplan has revealed a teaser image for the upcoming Pocket Edition update! The image reveals an interface similar to what MCX360 is expected to use for crafting, albeit more compact for touch-screens. When is the update, you ask? Soon - very soon. The image above isn't expected to be the final rendition of the menu, nor the sole update for the game; even so, it heralds exciting things for pocket-sized crafting.

Ask Mollstam Anything? You Still Can!

Tobias Möllstam - Front-end developer of Mojang - will be answering questions...any questions at all! There aren't many opportunities left to be this close to Mojang, so be sure to visit this AMA session - and the few remaining beyond it - you could get your question answered by Mojang themselves!

Don't forget to check out the AMA schedule, so you can ask your favorite developer anything!

Playing Pocket Edition is a bit like reliving the early history of Minecraft that I've read about on the Minecraft wiki.  I'm happy that it'll have crafting soon.

I know there's a lot of haters out there who think it's pathetic and a 'watered down' version of minecraft, but chill out. It has more than classic and, my big point, means I can play with my friends on a server even though my computer is pathetic.

I agree the classic online can't beat MC pocket edition

still not playing if there are no fricken CAVES. Minecraft with no mining is just legos.
In a personal conversation with Kappishe, some guy told me caves are confirmed.

When I make banners, people always say "THANK YOU SO MUCH OMG YOU ARE AWESOME" but never give me a +1. It makes me sad.

Also, I BARELY EVEN USE SURVIVAL MODE. I used it about 10 times.. and I don't get the point.

The point is that it is actually interesting, unlike Creative.
There used to be a picture here, about mods I like. It was outdated, and keeping up with which mods are still updated is difficult. Also, go look at my album art on the Aether Soundtrack: http://emilevankriek...ther-soundtrack

Give a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day.

Why is that UI not part of the PC version of Minecraft?

My thoughts exactly. Yes, there is the wiki and other online sources, but having something like this in-game would be that much more convenient. Experienced players may not need it, but it would be great for beginners, and would be helpful for when you might be away and don't have internet access. Seems like they would be way ahead of the community's thoughts and have this already.

Guhhh... more on this horrid, watered-down version of Minecraft.  Minecraft on anything but PC is far too limiting to be of interest to about 95% of PC gamers.  There must be more news or at least digital diamonds to show rather than this... Does Pasidon want to hear about the watered down version of games?  Not really... no...

Relax, dude! If they made the Minecraft Pocket Edition not "watered down", then everyone who is deciding to start playing Minecraft will just buy the Pocket Edition because it's just a dollar or two. Then Minecraft PC will not gain any more buyers.
As what Jeb said, it won't be completely similar.

P.S. It's Poseidon, not Pasidon.

Well, it isn't on Minecraft PE. You can't even craft anything, and you have infinite wooden planks and pickaxes and other stuff. And the only mobs are zombies, which burn in sunlight!

Finally, the news I have been waiting to hear. I was worried it would be like the PC version, as some phones have really small touch screens, and some people have really chubby fingers!
You seem awfully suspicious?
