Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.8.0 submitted, will be available in a few days

Screenshot_2013-11-22-21-23-58

Pocket Edition players, today is the day. Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.8.0 has been submitted to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Today on Twitter, Pocket Edition developer Tom said "XCode didn’t really want to cooperate, but we have submitted 0.8 to Apple! Android final will be out together with iOS." If you haven't had the chance to join the 0.8.0 beta, the release will be available to you soon.

Typically after the app is submitted to the Apple App Store, it can take anywhere from 1 day to a week for it to be available for download. Mojang usually waits until Apple approves the update to release it on Android, so players get the update at the same time. We have updated our Updates box on the right of the page to reflect the updated release dates for both 0.8.0 and 0.9.0. Hang in there Pocket Edition fans, the update is coming! Here's the full changelog, and the tweet is in the source link at the bottom.

This is a big update! Great news! :D Corbin, do you think that MCPE devs will added a auto update feature so it can enable snapshots for iOS, and other platforms that aren't Android. And so we don't have to wait 2 weeks or so for the update to come out? I would seem simple, like if mcpe creates files to save worlds, and edits them to play in them, can't they have something like that triggered when the app is loaded (during the mojang screen), and it would ping a server for updates, and would ask like in the old launcher "A new Version of MC is out, wou you like to update? Yes or No" And if you select Yes, a updater screen would show, and it would update, and you can just minimize the app, and let it update, as if it was updating from the store. I think this would help a lot with the entire aspect to waiting 2 WEEKS for the update. Honestly, I get a bit impatient when it comes to waiting.

The major thing holding Pocket Edition back is Apple. Apple does not approve apps that write and execute binary code (so a launcher that downloads and runs MCPE).
