Minecraft: Pocket Edition has just been released on iPhone. It'll set you back £4.99 / $6.99. It's been available on Android devices for a while.

Don't get too excited though. This is a scaled down version of Mojang's blocky building/adventuring sim; it doesn't feature item crafting, NPCs or biomes. You can still build stuff with 36 different block though, and even invite a few friends on the same wi-fi network for some co-op creations. As for the controls: it's no mouse and keyboard but it's playable. Mojang are hoping to improve Pocket Edition with incremental updates over time.
