It will work.
Okay, I can give you more details, but you really don't need them.
You should go out of your way to contact the original installer and get your original source code from them. Make sure it is the EDITABLE source code with no passwords preventing you from getting a third party to edit the code. Especially if they are proving to be difficult to get in touch with.
That said, the new Crestron for iPad app follows a completely different protocol than the Crestron Mobile Pro G app that was out there.
The apps do cost $100, but that's a steal compared to what Crestron would charge if you actually purchased any of their panels brand new.
It is stupid when dealers 'give' you the app. It's just a sign that they don't know what they are really doing. You buy the iPad, you buy the app, then you own knowing your password and login information. Plus, you can install it on several iPads without issue or needing to re-buy it again. When our company sells a client an iPad, I create a new account for them and give the client their login information for the iPad so they can add/replace the unit later on easily.
So, get Crestron Mobile Pro G for your new iPad and you should be good to go. I have both on my iPad Air and it works fine.
