So I might as well start talking about this. Here are some things to keep in mind.

1) The app version will not be the exact same as the online version. The online version will probably have at least a couple things the app version won't; the app version will definitely have some oft requested features that the online version doesn't.
2) The app will cost 99¢.
3) I still don't plan on updating the online version with any of the new features the app will have. I figure if you guys are going to spend some money, you deserve something special for it.

Note: Everything to follow is still tentative and subject to change at this point.

What the app may not have:
1) As many hairstyles as the online version. I won't be putting hairstyles in unless I can get permission from the artists to include them. Unfortunately, this means I may not be able to include hairstyles from the MLP cartoon in the app. I'm actually trying to contact someone at The Hub to see if I can keep them, but without their explicit permission I won't include them. I'm sorry; I know this is a big loss, but I'm hopeful some of the new features will make up for it.
2) Fully customizable posing. There will definitely at the very least be some predefined poses available, but fully customizable posing will depend on whether or not I can figure out a good way to implement it on a tiny touch screen, and whether or not I can improve the admittedly buggy skeleton.

New features the app will (probably) have:
1) Some new hairstyles to make up for the ones I have to remove.
2) The ability to turn the pony's head so that it's facing 3/4s view, front, or backwards. Meaning the pony is looking backwards, not that you can see the back of the head. All these view will be facing the user.
3) More accessories.
4) More options for posing the wings and tail--again, this is dependent on whether or not I can do customizable posing, but either way it will still be incorporated into the poses.
5) A way to quickly and easily save ponies for future editing that is easier to handle than the ponycode.
6) A scene editor that will let you put multiple ponies together a scene.

Finally, there will be ponycode compatibility between both versions of the game. Now, this doesn't mean that you can make a pony in the online version using a hairstyle the app version doesn't have and the hairstyle will magically appear. BUT, if you've already created a pony and want to import it (even if you have to pick out new hair), or if you make a pony in the app and want to use the hairstyles/posing features of the online version, you will be able to do that!

Additionally, because it is a pay app with a built-in way to deliver updates to the users, there's a good possibility I'll release more content and functionality as I go. Because I have lots of ideas, but I don't want to make you guys wait too long for the first version!

What about the bonus styles, like the ones from other things (EX: the homestuck manes) still be in it?

No copyrighted hairstyles will be in the game.

This is the best idea since sliced bread!I'm not sure if you're accepting Ideas and if you're not I'm sorry but here's a list:

1) Make the whole pony be able to change view 360 as well as the head by itself
2) You should have some preprogramed cutie marks
3) Spend more time on how a zebra looks cause no offense the original game doesn't portray them well

That all I have and again I'm sorry if you don't like people posting ideas.

1) That's not possible in the currently, 2D, posing game.
2) Nope. That's something that should be 100% original to your pony.
3) The zebra looks exactly like Zecora from the show. So if there's a problem, it's there.

Oh ok, take your time.
FestiveColors38 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
So when are you planning on releasing this?
generalzoi Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
When it's finished. Unfortunately I don't have a date for that yet.

Great idea! Can't wait!
But there's only a few things I need in order for me to spend a buck for it. :3
1. Spitfire's mane
2. Spitfire's tail
3. Secondary color on mane and tail enabled
4. Dependent snout and hoof color
5. Custom colors
6. Special deal; like, on the first day or do its free

Thanks, and that's all! ^^
generalzoi Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012
So you'll only spend a dollar on it if it's free? I'm not sure that logic follows. ^^;

Sorry; typo. All I'm asking is that we get a special deal so, for example, on the first day it'll be free, then it won't after that day.

...Also, can I get an ETA of the app?
