Hey everybody,
So when I want to play pocket edition multiplayer, it won't work, it just says searching for wifi games. I disable proxy settings, made sure we are on the same wifi, are on the same device (ipod touch), and made sure we were all updated to the current version. I think it still has something to do with the proxy settings. If anyone knows a solution, please don't hesitate.

If you're on the same wifi. Have the host open his world. Hit Pause, and make sure the bottom button says "Server is Visible". You should be able to connect to the others game then.

How is it a bug? It's probably your wifi. I had four devices connected to the same game on local wifi: 3 iphone 4s and an Ipad 2. Not the app's problem. Either your wifi or your device.

I came here looking for answers that might help this problem I'm having, I can join my friend's worlds, but he can't join mine. We're on the same wifi, and sometimes get glitches and lag on his worlds. Like I can see a glitched monster and he can't, and I can see him, but he can't see me. He's connected to my wifi, and I have high-speed Internet. I hope someone can help me, but idk any answer to your problem. Sorry. :(

I want to join my little cousin's server, and he wants me to help him with his house.
It works only at night for me and I don't know why...

It is a simple fact that iOS devices are protected on some incoming ports by design.
To get round this without at the need to Jailbreak your iphone / ipad or buy third party programs you can connect multiplayer in he following way.

1 Create a Minecraft PE world
2 Disconnect from any Wifi AP
3 turn on Wifi Hotspot
4 Other people wanting to participate in your game should Connect to your Wifi hotspot
5 run Minecraft PE on other device
6 connect to the game

Tested on the iPhone 4S / 5 / 5S iPad 3 / 4 all running iOS 7.02
There is no reason why android devices should not connect but I have not tested them
