Diversity

Where as the PC version, now formerly known as Minecraft - Java edition, is written in Java, Minecraft has been ported to C++ to function on mobile processors. Even though Android can support Java, since iOS is incapable of supporting Java, C++ is used for cross-platform compatibility.

Since the Bedrock engine is a full rebuild different from the Java edition, there are noticable difference between Bedrock and Java edition. A full list of exclusive features for Bedrock may be seen at Pocket Edition Exclusive Features.

Reception

Minecraft has received critically favorable reviews, earning a 4 out of 5 on PCmag and a 7.5 out of 10 on IGN. It remains #1 for top paid apps on the App Store and is #15 for most grossing app overall.

Trivia

  • Amazon Fire TV is the first system to allow controller support with Minecraft.
