I just asking why MineCraft is not on the Apple App store? by this i mean the App store for the computer and not the app store for the iphone and ipod touch. I think that this could really increase the MineCraft sales by allowing people with out a credit card to buy MineCraft because the App store use iTunes gift cards and it now has a gift card. if any one can give me a good reason why not do this please speak up.

Minecraft is still in beta. Mojang isn't going to make any ports until the game is finished.

What are you on about?
All thats being said is that minecraft should be sold on the App store on the mac so people can buy it from somewhere other than the minecraft website

I want an iCreeper. Is it like a white Creeper with the Apple Logo on it's back?

Minecraft should not be put on app stores owned by companies that are against open sourcing and free developement.

You must pay them to make a program that gives them popularity T_T

Yes, but the Mojang would only have to fix it for 3 more devices. iPad, iPhone & iPod Touch. With Android, there are too many devices to make an individual Minecraft for. Different screen sizes, processors, OS versions, etc. Android is just fragmented.

what the fuck are you talking about? screen sizes? processors? You can be a fan boy, but at least learn what you're talking about, especially before making assertions, you ad bot. fragmented like your sheepish mind . . .

what's with this influx of sheep?

So it's:
1. Build amazing app.
2. Sell app
3. Profit!!
4. Build another app.

Or:
1. Build amazing app.
2. Remove amazing bits so it runs on Apple iOs
3. Sell on Apple Web store
4. Profit!!
5. Give profit to Apple.
6. Give IP to Apple.
7. Give unborn souls of all your decendants to Apple.
8. No longer profitable to Apple, so they block you.
No, I will not subscribe to your channel because you asked... but I might if it's *good*.

Just a question: Is it really so difficult for Apple users to download Minecraft from the main website that Mojang should give up some of their profits and some of their creative control to Apple so that it can be available on the App Store?
