Make sure that your devices are within the same Wi-Fi connection. Both iOS and Android users can do this in the Settings menu, in the Wi-Fi menu sub-item. This requirement is the main one, and without it you will not succeed.

Step 2

Go to Minecraft: Pocket Edition on the first device, then click the big Settings button at the bottom of the screen. Select the menu item called "Local Server Multiplayer".
