| Featured Article
This article is, or once was a Featured Article of the Month, meaning it is one of the best articles on the wiki.
Club Penguin (formerly known as My Penguin) is a mobile application for iPads 2 or higher, iPhones 4 or higher and iPods Touch 4th generation or higher with iOS 6 or higher and Android devices with Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0.3 or higher, relating to Club Penguin. It was released on May 9, 2013. It became available for Android devices on the Google Play Store in December 2014.
It was found in Club Penguin’s files, meaning it will most likely have some in-game connectivity (this was confirmed by Spike Hike on the What's New Blog). Its name was confirmed at Club Penguin Media Summit, as well as the fact that you will be able to edit your penguin's player card. You can also obtain items for your penguin from the in-app Penguin Style catalog, or the “Sushi Drop” minigame. It is available in English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. German and Russian were available until September 2015, when both languages were extinct from the game.
