Hi, we have an Ipad and our 8 year old really wants to play minecraft. When I go to the APP store I find hundreds of choices. what is the best app to start with? Free would be great. Thanks so much!!
It can be confusing, can't it! Most of the apps on the app store are not the Minecraft game itself, but rather apps that support the game or somehow leverage off the popularity of it. The only official Minecraft game available in the app store is called Minecraft Pocket Edition, and it costs about $8. That's the one you should get, ignore everything else.
Hope that answers your question!
