Mojang has released a fairly substantial update for the Pocket Edition of Minecraft, available for iOS and Android. This release focuses on adding more mobs, features and extended functionality, while also addressing the size of worlds and squashing any known bugs affecting the immersive experience.

Version 0.9.0 contains quite the feature list, so be sure to check out the list below for a full run through.

  • Infinite worlds
  • Caves
  • Loads of new blocks and items including Monster Eggs and huge mushroom blocks.
  • Wolves! Tame a loyal companion.
  • Loads of new flowers! So pretty.
  • New mobs, including the spooky endermen and less spooky Mooshrooms.
  • New biomes from the PC version, including mesas, jungles, swamps and extreme hills.
  • Abandoned mineshafts, villages, and many other cool places to explore.
  • A brand-new "interaction" button. Never accidentally punch a sheep again!
  • New feature generation, including lakes, vines and monster rooms.
  • Many bugs fixed, and possibly a few added.

Better, still lacking red stone, texture packs and cloud storage. Survival craft is still much better. It's a shame, I love MC and they need to pull their fingers out.

Just updated this on my Daughter's tablet. She's been talking non stop about the update coming soon. She thought it was due tomorrow so she's in for a surprise today when she goes to play it. I tested it out and seems to run OK on her Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 .

Lol, I'm glad I'm not the only one who's kid has been excited about this update. My son has been taking non-stop about this update ever since I told him it was going to include wolfs. He has this installed on his Nabi and has been playing it for a few months now and he just loves this game.

Android TV is going to be awesome for playing games like this on your tv without having to dish out big money for a regular console.

My Kids have tried playing Minecraft PE and screen casting to the ChromeCast. Even when lag is minimal there is a disconnect becuase the controls are on their Nexus 7s and they still need to look at their screens to see where they are touching for input.

Infinite world's! Finally! Been waiting ages for this! Can't believe mojang took so long when survivalcraft did all this a long time ago.
