Minecraft Pocket Edition has been updated to offer a crafting interface similar to that found in the multi-million selling PC original.

The Pocket Edition was criticised at launch for lacking most of the features which made the PC game so popular, but the new update follows the addition of the survival mode, making the game much more appealing to those wanting the true Minecraft experience on their mobile device.

Version 0.3.0 updates:

  • New crafting UI reachable from [...]Inventory -> [Craft]
  • Cows and chickens!
  • Damageable items
  • Drop items from your selection slots by press and hold
  • Some resources can only be gathered with specific tools (see crafting descriptions)

Minecraft Pocket Edition is priced £4.99 on iOS and £4.29 on Google Play.
