The 0.7.2 update for Minecraft - Pocket Edition is going live, even as we speak! The change-log isn't as bulky as they often are; however, the current design focus for MCPE seems to suggest a heavy leaning towards improving performance, and player-assisting enhancements that are specific to mobile platforms. In addition, Mojang is hard at work getting Realms in order for MCPE, so that players can share in their awesome portable builds, no matter where they are!

ADDITIONS:
  • Nametags for multiplayer
  • Player List
  • Chat will be easier to use

BUG FIXES:
  • Loading a world with a dot after the name now resolved

Great but it is not that special.It has only few features.The news should normally show major updates like 0.7.0 which was not shown.
Also minor updates with exciting features.

I love the fact that Mojang introduced MCPE and the updates are amazing, although I do feel as if MCPE is [i]somewhat [/i]neglected.
Yes, I understand they have to appeal to the larger community on the computer, although I do feel as if MCPE needs slightly more per update, whilst I say this, I'm extremely excited for the planned updates to come on MCPE.
PK Fire!

This is exciting. I have all version of Minecraft, and honestly, MCPE is the worst out of the bunch... hang on... I don't have the Pi addition... Eh, well, MCPE is not the best. It needs bigger and better features. The problem is that it's further behind and it lacks the things the PC and Xbox versions have. Proper controls. I mean, I don't have enough control with my tiny screen (well, not that tiny, but you get the picture). I know I could get an Ipad, but I have android... I'd need to pay again. What I want is more stuff to play on it. More buttons, more options (I like to fiddle with the options in my games to see what the best options are), more multiplayer! It needs MORE!
