Transferring Minecraft: Pocket Edition to a new device

We're often asked if players can download Minecraft: Pocket Edition for free after purchasing it on a device using a different app store. Unfortunately, this is not possible. For example, if you made your initial purchase on an Android device and then want to play Minecraft on an iOS device, you will need to purchase it again through your iOS app store. 

Apple's App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore each sell their apps separately and do not coordinate sales with the competing companies. Unfortunately, it is not possible to download a previously purchased app, including Minecraft: Pocket Edition, to a device that uses a different online marketplace.

If you've deleted Minecraft: Pocket Edition, and want to download it again using the same app store account and device type on which it was purchased, you can visit your device's app store, search for Minecraft, and re-download the app for free.

For more information on these policies, please contact your app store's support center:
