The long Winter and Autumn holiday filled break is pretty much over, and I'm sure I'm not the only one that spent a bit too much time devouring the piles of food that these seasons bring. We have been toying with the idea of running a summer-long event dedicated to helping the masses of pony fans out there to get in shape, but need to gauge interest and generate some ideas on how exactly this would go down.
So how many of you would be interested in joining your fellow pony fan in a summer of self improvement? A few things that have been tossed around the ideacloud are cross-meetup group competitions and a daily side bar workout routine for you all to dig into. We've already bugged The Brony Health Group with the idea, so we have the template. We just need to implement it!
If you have any suggestions, or just want to voice your support for the idea, hit the comments up! Chances are we will have to wait until after the majority of college/high school campuses to finish their final testing weeks, so we have a bit of time until anything begins. I for one could use the motivation to start exercising a bit more, and I know I'm not alone!
We start with a bit of epic orchestral dedicated to Fluttershy, followed by some Swing jazz with some excellent vocals to compliment it, and finish with a bit of soft orchestral Snowdrops tribute music! Check them all out below.

4DE has released images of the second pony in their line of show-accurate 10.5" pony toys, focusing this time on Pinkie Pie. Pre-orders aren't open yet, but you can check her out over in their shop. The price appears to be the exact same as Twilight Sparkle, so I'm assuming we can bet that the rest of the mane six will follow a similar trend.
And if you missed Twilight Sparkle, you can find her over here!
This reminds me of that Blood Dragon Far Cry thing I need to play.
Onward to wallpaper! We have 40 total this time around, hopefully your rotator thingy has room!

Description: Lightning Dust has seen better days. She’s on the verge of becoming a full-blown alcoholic, and her career is in shambles. She’s gotten so desperate that she even found a support group to help her work through her problems, but the first meeting turns out to be nothing like what she expected. This isn't the gathering of former antagonists that she was looking for. In fact, some of these creatures shouldn't even exist!The OC Support Group

Comics! We have some origins of Cadance, some making fun of Trixie, and a bit of simple 8 bit stuff. Click for full as always!
The march of progress cannot be stopped!
In this set of updates, our awesome developer Gameleon has implemented the most-requested features asked for from the last update. The iOS version has preliminary iPad support, all versions have support for tumbnails next to posts (since we know you guys love images!) and some minor stylistic and sharing feature changes. By changes, I mean he added the ability to share posts to other applications. It's like magic!
You probably have both versions set to auto-update, but just in case you don't, you can grab them and see the full changelogs here!
Just a quick note: we realize the Android update has been out for a while. We're usually left waiting on Apple's submission process to get them both up to sync.
If we've missed a feature you'd really like to see, leave it in the comments! We enjoy your feedback and we read everything.

Description: Twilight Sparkle has hit a wall in her studies. So when she is tasked by Princess Celestia with joining an expedition on a faraway island, she can't help but see it as a form of punishment. Nevertheless, she packs her bags and heads to Baltimare, one of Equestria's many port cities. It should have been simple: find a ship offering passage and pay them to take her to Haven. She soon learns, though, that ponies are afraid of the unknown waters past Eternity's Crossing. Despite her best efforts, she is unable to find a ship willing to take her there. That is, until she meets Captain Rainbow Dash.
Brash and enigmatic, Rainbow Dash, along with her crew, are the only ones willing to ferry Twilight on the waters of the Forgotten Sea. She expects six months of quiet travel that will allow her to continue her studies. What she gets is an adventure that flips her view of Equestria on its head, and the realization that the line between right and wrong is never as clear as it seems.
