Ummm awesome. Looks like I may be redownloading this.
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. Posted via Android Central App

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 . From the DeathStar using my rooted LG G2
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.
My kid love's the update. Very little lag if you cast it to tv. Posted via Android Central App
About time! Posted via Android Central App
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. Posted via Android Central App
