I bought Minecraft PE on kindle and want to play on ipad? Can this be done or do i have to re-buy? Many thanks!

You'll have to re-buy it if you want to obtain it legitimately. Same with buying an app on Android then wanting the same app on an iDevice

No, you can't share or transfer an app purchase from your Kindle or other Android device to your iPad, or vice versa. There are some exceptions for in-app purchases (like comic book apps), but generally, purchases from one marketplace will not transfer to a device on another marketplace. This is the case for MCPE.

I believe you bought the game from Amazon Appstore, but they do not develop and publish the iOS version, since this is against Apple's policy/EULA. So if you want your Minecraft PE Version on your iPad, you need to rebuy it from Apple's official App Store.
