Matt or John - When do you guys think you will release a version for the iPad. I currently run SQ on the iPad but in 2x zoom the graphics are grainy.

Jeez, they want $200+ for that dock and in glossy white????  Not to mention that the entire thing sits proud of the wall.  If that is the best option out there for the price, I think I'll consider Velcro (white), magnets, or build my own picture frame dock constructed out of wood moulding and a charge/sync cable.

I'm still waiting for the next generation of iPads, before I buy a used first generation ;) ...ok, yes I am frugal...

Thank you for the link, I am always looking for docking options.  Unfortunately, I vote against an iPad version for now(until I get one).   Although if SQ Remote is completely overhauled to be optimized for the new screen size, with all that extra real estate I could squeeze all of my buttons onto only 1 or 2 pads.

please pardon my dumb question below. i remotely access V2 through my iphone via https://cp2.mios.com/mobile.
if i ever decide to get another gateway say for example from homeseer, will sq remote/sq blaster work with other home automation gateway. put it differently do sq remote and sq blaster only work with vera? until now i havent decided between ivera and sq remote; $30 is a lot of money for a retired person like me. i apologize for my stupidity.

First off, if you want to control IR devices with SQ Blaster then you'll get the app for free when you buy the Blaster.

SQ Remote/Blaster is tied to Vera for home control and Z-Wave control.  Square Connect has and will port their remote app to work with other systems if the demand/price is high enough.  Chances are that Homeseer will probably continue to use thier own iPod app, but who knows there might be a relationship between them in the future. 

iVera works strictly with Vera and Vera only, while SQ Remote at least has the IR blaster side of things being independent.  Also Square Connect is always forward thinking and I believe they have some tricks up their sleeve for control sans Vera, but we'll have to see.  To summarize, if you are budget concious and not sure which HA system you'll be tied to, then you might wait and continue using the web interface.  If you know you want IR blaster functionality then get the Blaster/Remote App combo, the response time using SQ Remote is much faster than the current Vera web interface.

shady, thank you very much for your feedback. i think i will take your advice to continue using the web interface for a while. i am leaning towards buying the blaster with free sq remote rather than the ivera. anyway, i only have 6 zwave devices for now; so no rush for me.

I can add to the list that would love an IPad version. I purchased a Sonos multi zone music system for our yachts solely on the IPad interface....the best music interface I have seen!
Point being.....you will sell more hardware if you hurry and bring one to the market.
I hope this helps build the fire.

@Maartenvt

Yes we are working on an iPad version. I cannot say when it will be ready for release. I can say that it is one of our top priorities.
