I have two small kids and I'm trying to get them set up so they can play in the same world over our wifi. Having trouble making that happen. Both are on version 1.2.9 of Pocket Edition, one on an old Ipad and the other on a Kindle Fire. Don't really want them to have to sign into accounts if that is possible.

I've tried adding a server entering our IP address via Play>Servers but the game just hangs on 'locating server.'

Videos and websites offering advice about this I was able to find all appear to be for older versions of Minecraft and the settings don't look the same.

If anyone could please help I'd really appreciate it!

Hi there! Have you clicked "Open to LAN" in the settings on one of the two tablets? Are they both connected to the same network?
