How do you place redstone dust in Minecraft Pocket Edition. I looked at my redstone book but it doesn't tell you. I've tried just placing it like a block too but it doesn't work.

    Please don't change the tag again. We use a different tag for the pocket edition because of the significant differences in that version compared to the desktop version.

As of Pocket Edition Alpha 0.13.0 (released on 19th of November 2015), redstone dust can be placed on opaque and transparent blocks, upside-down slabs, upside-down stairs and hoppers. To place it, tap on a block while holding on redstone dust.

Redstone dust cannot be placed in pocket edition, it is a crafting material, nothing more.
