My friend is on his Samsung Galaxy tablet, and I'm on my iPod 5th gen. It's not letting us be on the same server. We are both using the same WiFi. I have Minecraft PE and my friend has PE Lite. When I go to "join game" and click on his server name, it says locating server. But after a few moments it says could not connect to server and returns try again. Why isn't it letting me?

It is possible that Minecraft PE doesn't support cross-platform play (either both of you need to play on iOS device, or Android device) –  DISREGARD MODS ACQUIRE REP Jan 27 '13 at 4:41

Okay, from what I procured from the wiki: The multiplayer mode is cross-platform compatible between Android and iOS, but not Demo/Lite with Full version –  DISREGARD MODS ACQUIRE REP Jan 27 '13 at 4:43
    
What game do you have? If it's Demo/Lite, I don't think it'll work. On the other hand, as the wiki says, if you both have Full version, it should work. –  DISREGARD MODS ACQUIRE REP Jan 27 '13 at 4:46

Your friend has the lite version, as you stated above.

The Minecraft Pocket Edition wikia says:

The multiplayer mode is cross-platform compatible between Android and iOS, but not Demo/Lite with Full version

Basically, both of you need to have the Full version in order to play with each other.
