Release date

March 14, 2012

v0.2.1 alpha was a minor update to Minecraft: Pocket Edition that was released on March 14, 2012 that added new control options, as well as other changes and fixes.[1]

Additions[]

  • New controller option – Split Touch controls
    • This option may be more suitable for devices with larger screens. The crosshair is in the right half of the screen.
  • Added bookshelves in Creative mode.
  • Sugar cane is now infinite (unable to collect them).

Changes[]

  • Pigs now naturally spawn.
  • Flying is changed – ascend/descend by sliding from the center button to the up/down button.
  • Bigger screens have more hotbar icons.
  • Blocks now have 'cracking' animation when destroying them.
  • The circle shown when breaking blocks is sharper.
