"I'm an iOS user with an ISY Controller, which version is right for me?"
If you have an iPhone with no plans on purchasing an iPad, then MobiLinc Pro is the right app for you.
If you have an iPhone and an iPad, or are planning on purchasing an iPad, then MobiLinc HD or Orchestrated MobiLinc is the right app for you.
MobiLinc HD and Orchestrated MobiLinc are nearly identical with one key difference. Orchestrated MobiLinc comes with the Resource Manager plug-in built into the app. Resource Manager is an optional paid plug-in for MobiLinc HD. For more information on Resource Manager, please see our plug-in page.
"What's the difference between MobiLinc Pro and MobiLinc HD for iOS?"
MobiLinc Pro is an iPhone app only. It will run on the iPad, however, it will be 2X simulated on the iPad screen. If you have an iPad, planning on purchasing an iPad, or have multiple iOS devices, MobiLinc HD and Orchestrated MobiLinc are Universal apps that will run on all your iOS devices that use the same iTunes account and is the recommend app.
When running on the iPad, you will see the custom iPad interface we created just for the iPad. When running on the iPhone, MobiLinc will look like MobiLinc Pro tailored for the iPhone interface.

"What's the difference between MobiLinc HD and Orchestrated MobiLinc for iOS?"
MobiLinc HD and Orchestrated MobiLinc are nearly the same. The only difference for ISY users is the Resource Manager is built into Orchestrated MobiLinc whereas Resource Manager is an optional plug-in for MobiLinc HD. Both support the ISY and will give you the HD interface on the iPad and iPhone interface on the iPhone/iPod Touch.
If you intend on sharing the app with your family consider the following:
If you know you want the Resource Manager functionality, go for the Orchestrated MobiLinc version as you'll be able to fully share this with other's on your iOS 8 family sharing plan. If you go with MobiLinc HD and then purchase the plug-in, Apple currently does not allow plugins to be shared with family members.
"I use MobiLinc Pro for iOS, how to I upgrade to the iPad version?"
With iOS 8, iTunes introduced App Bundles to allow developers to bundle multiple apps for purchase at a discount. One of the features is if you already have an app in the bundle, you can "complete" the bundle for the difference in price.
We offer two discounted bundles for our MobiLinc Pro users looking to upgrade to an iPad UI solution:
MobiLinc HD Bundle
Orchestrated MobiLinc Bundle
Please be aware that Apple does not allow plug-ins purchased in one app to transfer to another app. Any plug-ins purchased in MobiLinc Pro would need to be purchased again under MobiLinc HD or Orchestrated MobiLinc.
