Unfortunately, any app can be responsible for this. Developers do like to get paid for their work.
A few ideas....
1. Try purchasing the full version of apps to support the Dev and as a side note, get rid of ads. LOL
2. If your rooted, try install a firewall app like Droidwall or LBE Privacy Guard. These apps allow you to choose which app can connect to the outside world.
3. If rooted, get Titanium backup. Backup your apps and then you can try to remove them in reverse chronological order (newest to oldest) to see if you can root out the culprit.
If not rooted, you can get the app Super Manager. It has a backup function as well.
