This article is about something that was for a period of time or is no longer in Club Penguin.
|Club Penguin App|
|Released|| May 9, 2013 (iPad),|
April 16, 2014 (iPhone and iPod),
December 18, 2014 (Android devices)
|Latest version|| 1.6.23 (iOS),|
|Supported Devices||iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone, and Android devices|
- For the reboot of the game, see Club Penguin Island.
The Club Penguin App (formerly known as My Penguin) was a free mobile application for Club Penguin, fully released on May 9, 2013 for Apple devices and December 18, 2014 for Android devices. The app was compatible with any of the aforementioned brands with operating systems of either iOS 7 or Android 4.0.3 and above. In addition to being released for iPads on May 9, 2013, the app was available to download for iPhone and iPod on April 16, 2014.
Users of the app could choose to play in several different languages: English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian, most of which are available in the regular version for Club Penguin as well.
As informed by a parents update email, the app was removed from the App Store and Google Play on February 27, 2017, a month and two days preceding the discontinuation of the desktop version of Club Penguin. Unlike the iOS version of the app, which was completely removed from iTunes, the Android version still can be downloaded by following a direct link to the page. However, it cannot be found through the native search of the Google Play website and, like the desktop version of the game, its servers are offline.

— Club Penguin summarising the app
Both versions of the game offered a new art style towards Club Penguin; turning the traditional sprite artwork into a 3D model which was used by penguins and puffles. In addition, they both allowed you to play most of the games from the desktop version (however on Android the game does not host Card-Jitsu Snow).
- Edit Penguin: Can edit your penguin's clothing.
- Buddy List: Brings up your Buddy List, and allows you to throw a snowball at your friends. You can also accept or deny friend requests through the app.
- Penguin Style: Can buy clothes from a Penguin Style catalog, including mobile exclusive items.
- Blog: Can read the latest posts from the What's New Blog.
- Videos: Can watch the latest videos from Club Penguin's YouTube channel. Was removed in version 1.2.
- Games: Can play Club Penguin minigames such as Puffle Rescue, Puffle Roundup, Ice Fishing, Pufflescape, Sushi Drop, Card-Jitsu Snow, Jetpack Boost, Bean Counters, Pizzatron 3000, and Smoothie Smash.
- 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.
- Igloos: Can edit and visit other igloos.
- Rooms: Can visit rooms on the island such as the Town Center, Coffee Shop, Dance Club, Clothes Shop, Dock, Beach, Lighthouse, Beacon, Snow Forts, Pizza Parlor, Skatepark, and Mine Shack.
- Jump to Friend: Can Jump to Friends by clicking on their player card and then clicking on a little curvy white arrow.
