|Club Penguin App|
|Released||May 9, 2013|
|Supported Devices||iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini, iPad Air, iPod Touch, iPhone, and (coming soon) Android|
The Club Penguin App (formerly called My Penguin) is a free mobile application for Club Penguin, fully released on May 9, 2013. The app is compatible with any iPad™ with iOS 6. The only languages at the time are English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian. Club Penguin plans on making it work in more languages and on more devices soon (such as Android™), confirmed by Spike Hike in a blog post. It was released on iPhone™ and iPod™ Wednesday, 16 April, 2014. Spike Hike has stated that it will take at least 6 months or so to get the app on Android™.
Since then, players have been able to play two exclusive mini-games, decorate their igloos, chat with their friends, adopt puffles and see their penguins in a new, more detailed 3D penguin avatar.

- 3D artwork: A new type of penguin sprite was shown in WaddleOn Episode 6, and in the corner a small print stated "My Penguin footage shown." This sprite is seen when waddling around in igloos. It took the team one year to make every single item in 3D.
