There are currently two default skins in the game-
Mojang has released official skin packs containing a variety of skins, mostly based on one or more themes (eg. Star Wars, Marvel, etc). These can be either free or paid.
It is also possible to upload a custom skin into the game if the player chooses to do so. They can do so using the Minecraft: Skin Studio Encore App，,or SkinSeed. They can also download a skin file from the internet, save it in their images, and access it through the game.
- Skins were originally planned for Update 0.10.0, but were postponed as they were too buggy.
- Before Update 0.11.1, There was a bug were Skin Packs could not be purchased.
- A bad glitch occurs on older devices like ipod touch 4th gen which doesn't allow custom skins to work.
