Update again: still crashing.... nobody can play for more than five minutes before a glitch and crash. Seriously, this game has sucked since June of 2016. It’s had a moment here and there where it’s world okay, but with the constant updating, y’all have ruined the pc game.
UPDATE: September 28, 2017 (continued from the bottom....)
Absolutely HATE the new menu set up and how it works! One of the perks of MCPE was not having to jump through all the extra hoops that PC players did. You just clicked what you wanted and that's what you got. It was simple and easy. The set up made sense, too....
I hate the fact that I now have to take extra steps to put things in my inventory. Used to be click and its there.... Now there are extra steps that just make it more confusing.
Speaking of confusing.... What's up with the new menu set up? I can't find anything now! HATE IT SO MUCH!!!!
If you want to add things, fine.... but quit screwing with the set up! The set up was fine! Has been fine from the beginning! Put it back how it was!!!!
Also, we HATE being forced to have an Xbox live account. We don't want to play with anyone else. Why not make that optional???
Last.... IT STILL CRASHES WITH EVERY UPDATE!!! I would think by now, you'd at least have figured that one out.....
(sometime before June 2016): I used to love playing mc with my kids, but now we can't go into each other's worlds anymore. Also, it crashes all the time, making it too much of a pain to play. Any building or other work I do disappears when it crashes, too.
Updating with new stuff is great, but I'd just like to have a game that functions properly.
Okay, the texture packs are fun, and horses(!) are great, and all the new stuff is probably amazing.... BUT WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO TO HAVE NEW STUFF IF YOU CAN'T USE IT???!!!??
Seriously, the game crashed 8 times in less than 10 minutes.... and at least a gazillion times before we started keeping track! It's not fun to play a game that you have to keep restarting. PLEASE fix the crashing issue!
Still crashing, super slow, and where I first could go into my kids' worlds, now I can't again..... REALLY would love just an update that only fixes the issues.
Crashing, crashing, always crashing! Please fix....
And we still can't play for more than three minutes without crashing.... it's getting to be so not fun to play!
IT'S WORSE!!!! I can't play 20 seconds now before the stupid game crashes! I used to love this game, but now it just isn't even worth bothering to open it....
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!! With all the "updates" and "bug fixes" that keep getting put out, WHY is this game still crashing all the time????
Well, I thought the latest update had made a dent on the crashing issue..... but no. After a couple of days of being able to play for almost 15 minutes at a time without crashing, we are back to crashing every two minutes again.
Mojang, instead of constantly adding new things to make MCPE just like the PC game, PLEASE FIX THE CRASHING ISSUE. People who want the PC standard can go spend the money on the PC game, which means you make more money. This version is called the Pocket Edition for a reason....
FIX THE CRASHING!!!!! Thanks....

Aaaaaand we are STILL crashing! There were a couple of weeks that I could play with my girls without crashing, but then we had another update and we are back to crashing..... Sigh.....
June 9, 2017
Guess what? We gave up on playing for a few months.... picked it up again a week or so ago.... it's still crashing. AND, I can't even get it to open on my kindle....AND my texture packs don't show up anymore... AND, is still CRASHING.
So. .. still crashing... can't play more than a few minutes before crashes. Also, it doesn't even register that I have Minecraft on my other device, even though I have been playing on that device for months. I can't get any of my texture packs on my other device, and we have family sharing set up, and prior to the most recent updates, I had all the same texture packs as the rest of my family. On that device, without the texture packs, I can play a bit longer, but it doesn't save any of the building that I have done. It's stupid.
The coin thing is a rip off. You end up spending more on a texture pack than you normally would, due to the way it's set up.
I already spent way too much on this game. It's not worth it!
Update: September 28, 2017
So.... I gave up on the idea of having texture packs on my other device, and just played in regular mode and it worked okay for a month or so. Still crashed, but less than usual. My kids could occasionally play in each other's worlds, but not often, and not for long. Now we have had several updates....
(I wanted to update this review a couple of weeks ago but it still isn't showing on my other device, so I wasn't allowed....)
Actually, I'm going to add this to the top of this review.... I just realized that would likely be more efficient!
