Hey guys, I just recently realized that the mechanism to request refunds for the Pony Creator through Google Play is still in place even though the app was taken down. So if you previously purchased it but can't install it anymore, feel free to request a refund and I'll process it as quickly as possible.

To request a refund:
1. Go to wallet.google.com.
2. Find and click on the Pony Creator purchase.
3. The purchase information will open up on the right side of the screen. Near the bottom should be a link that says "Contact GeneralZoi" or something like that.
4. Click that link to get taken to a contact page.
5. Under the "Choose request type" dropdown, select "I'd like to request a refund or return an item."
6. Click Send!

That's the easiest way for me to process the refunds, since once I get the request I just have to press a button to make it go through. Hopefully this will help anyone who got a new device and lost access to the game.

Also, the app is still available for Android on the Amazon app store at this link: www.amazon.com/GeneralZoi-Pony…. Honestly I kind of forgot about it because I've sold so few copies from Amazon. But if you still want it you can get it from there, or by opening the Amazon app on your device and searching for "Pony Creator" in Apps & Games. Note that you will need to purchase it again since it's a separate sale from the Google Play version. But if you've already bought it, just go through the refund process above and I'll refund your money so you're not paying for it twice.

I hope this helps some people who still want to use the app. Thanks for all your patience, and let me know if anything's not working or something above is wrong. Thanks!
ETA 7/19/2016: The Pony Creator is still available in the Amazon App Store here. See my latest journal entry for info about it and about getting a refund for the Google Play version of the game if you want one.

As a number of you have noticed, the Pony Creator Android version was removed from the Google Play store. This was for violating their impersonation policy. As far as I can tell what this means is that nothing in the Pony Creator was a strict copyright violation, since it wasn't removed for a copyright violation, but because a lot of people kept associating it with the MLP show it was removed because it wasn't an official app. Unfortunately Google didn't tell me exactly what part of the app would have to be changed to make it compliant with their policies. Turns out developer are actually barred from asking for specific details of why apps are removed and what needs to be changed.

I may update the app and try to resubmit it, or I may not. I'm not sure how I feel about it at this point. Mostly because I found out piracy is a huge problem on Android as well as online, and from the investigations I've done I may have lost up to 80% of my sales to pirates. That kind of takes the wind out of a girl's sails.

Unfortunately what this means is that if you purchased the Android app and get a new device, you won't be able to reinstall it from the Google Play store. I'm pretty pissed about that too, but that's just how Google's policies work. It's not something I have any control over.

The online version will stay up for anyone who wants to use it, and the iOS version is still available. As for the rest, I'm going to have a long think about it, and we'll see. I'm feeling a bit beat down at the moment. It may be time to move on to something else.
