I have a river of lava near my base, and I'm not sure what I can do with it. What can I do with lava in Minecraft Pocket Edition?

You can use it as a mob killing trap. Hostile mobs go towards you, so you can have lava between the both of you. A cool thing to do is to make sort of a lava-fall. It's like a waterfall, but with lava. Finally, a very useful design would be to dig very deep, so the lava could sink in and build a bridge over it.

This question is asking about the Pocket Edition, not the PC version. Please edit your answer so that it fits this. – Jeffrey Lin Feb 15 '13 at 0:37
@DanielPalamarchuk I have rolled back your tag edits, as they are not appropriate for these questions. Minecraft and Minecraft:PE are two separate games. Please familiarize yourself with how tagging is used here before doing any further retagging. – Frank Feb 26 '13 at 21:12
