      My son has purchased Minecraft Pocket Edition and has been using it on an original Apple iPad running iOS 5.1.1 (as this is the highest iOS that you can run on this device). iPad is NOT jailbroken and never has been.

      Minecraft Pocket Edition version 0.10.4 has been working well on this device (with one exception: Infinite Worlds mode would crash out to the main menu). It did not freeze.

      However the new update version 0.11.1 is extremely crash prone: it freezes frequently. (Note that the version number shown in the Apple App Store is 0.11.1 but the JIRA Create Issue form does not have that version listed so 0.11.0 is the closest I could enter).

      My son wrote the following list of problems:

      It lets me on for a minute then everything freezes, have to click the home button to get out.
      Same on multiplayer.
      If you try to edit a world, does the same.
      Create world freezes.
      Languages & settings freeze as well.
      Pretty much everything freezes.

      Will you please fix this freezing problem?
