Originally released as a desktop game for the Microsoft platform, Minecraft has enjoyed tremendous success, to the extent that it was soon released in mobile format for both Android and iOS. Minecraft is one of the simplest games ever released, with basic graphics but it is also one of the most fun games. The idea of Minecraft is to build a home and survive by gathering resources, growing your own food, crafting weapons and fighting enemies.
Minecraft Pocket Edition is proving just as popular, but you do have to pay for it when you purchase it through the official appstore. We’re going to show you how to get it for free.

You may experience issues with Minecraft PE crashing after a few days. This will happen because the app certificate has been revoked as being unofficial.
