Getting started with iAquaLink is as easy as 1-2-3:
1. Have your pool professional install the iAquaLink Web Connect Device (IQ900) to your AquaLink pool automation system and configure it for a wired or Wi-Fi connection. Your pool professional can help determine which hardware is right for your application.
2. Create a free account at iAquaLink.com, then add the device to the account.
3. Download the app to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to control the system anytime, anywhere.
iAquaLink Web Connect Device upgrades are available for virtually any Zodiac or Jandy AquaLink control system ever made – consult a qualified pool professional or licensed electrician familiar with pool automation systems for hardware recommendations and physical installation.

Not much of an update...it's been almost 2 years and almost nothing was changed. All the developers did was update to the io7 skin, added some smart JVAs and changed the look of the set temperature arrows. Wow, That's it.
Also for some reason in the change temp menu they replaced the "back" button with a "cancel" button which seems really stupid b/c once you change the temp you now have to push "set" then "cancel". Why? Here's an idea for your next update, allows users to email the app developers directly from the app.
To anyone new to this app, the app works great in the first 3 tabs. The fourth tab, titled "Web" has a very clunky interface whose buttons are often unresponsive. You have to push them slow and deliberate.
To anyone that is having problems with the app saying "offline" don't use the wifi. Run an Ethernet directly to your iAqualink. I had "offline" issues for 2 years (even with a 4/5 signal strength) and there's a forum dedicated to it. Jandy is no help whatsoever. I absolutely didn't want to run cat5, but was left with no choice. I haven't seen an offline error on the app since the day I ran a super long cat5. Good luck!
Great idea, extremely poor execution
I have to give this a single star. It has to be the most poorly executed "cloud-based" system I've ever seen. The "app" is mostly just accessing a web page and when it works, it is clunky, non-intuitive and slow. Most of the time, the buttons on the web page wont work from my mobile device. I've only been able to update the schedule from my desktops or example.
Today I discovered that the stop time on my filter pump was suddenly set to 39:50 (which finally prompted this review). Obviously Zodiac's server is on a planet where the days are significantly longer.
As bad as my old aqualink was before this "upgrade," at least it worked all the time and the worst issue I had to deal with was changing the batteries.
Update: Still awful. Having constant connection issues despite wireless access point is less than 10 feet from the receiver and no other devices have connection issues.
App states "Offline" far more than it doesn't. Often first page in app looks like it's would work but toggling switches does nothing and by clicking on another tab and going back reveals it was really offline. Some days it works, some days not.
Thinking about going back to old system.
About the same
The app's greatest virtue is that it allows you to log in to the web interface pretty easily.
I can't believe that the bug with temperatures is still present. On my system, if I set temp2 it swaps them and saves temp2 as temp1 and vise versa. So I am forced to use the Web app for temperature updates.
I reported this to Jandy about two years ago and was assured by the regional rep that this issue would be resolved in the release that fall.
Also, I do not understand why every weather app out there can show me a temperature that is not exactly up-to-the-minute. Yet the Jandy app immediately stops showing me the pool temperature the moment the pump is turned off. Why can't they continue to show the temperature with a small notation indicating when the reading was last taken? I have to fire up the pool pump and let it run for several minutes every time I want to see my temperature. My pump runs regularly throughout the day, and the pool is not going to change temperature that quickly where a reading that is 30 minutes or an hour out of date is going to be wildly inaccurate.
