Club Penguin

Review Excerpt: Recurring in-app purchases meet a seven year old’s desire to collect things to decorate an igloo, in this new iPad version of Club Penguin ($free, http://appstore.com/clubpenguin). The free download lets you have “many of the same gameplay and social features” found in the virtual world, plus recurring in-app subscriptions. I downloaded the app, and logged in to find my five year old Club Penguin, still dressed like it was 2009, with 15,367 coins. But when I tried to buy a holiday wreath for the igloo, I got the message “unlimited access to Igloos & Furniture requires a paid membership.” In other words, you can still can see cool stuff, but when you touch to get it, you are told that you must buy a membership. Prices are still $8/month, but you have to remember to cancel.
