Version 8.1

Finally I found some time to update iRedstone, yeah, what should I say? University takes more time than I expected.

So I decided to provide new instructions via app updates (Apple has way better servers than me).

New instructions:
• 3x3 piston-slime-door
• item-frame-secret-door
• dancefloor
• particle
• scoreboard
• create mobs
• create special Mobs
• summon-command
• create animals
• particle-fun
• slime-clock
• slime-plane
• slime-upwiring
• slime-block
• slime-tramoline
• immediately exploding TNT
• fun with skulls
• counting machine

other fixes:
new minecraft item-notation: »item-strings« instead of numbers
and I fixed the app-crashes which sometimes appeared on older devices with bad internet connection

Thanks for supporting iRedstone! You are awesome!

PS: please rate iRedstone in the AppStore & send me new ideas for the next update :D
