    You cannot develop for the iPad in .net

    Unless you are working on a jail broken device, you need a development license ($99 a year) and you need to use Apples development environment. You don't need to go through the App store for your own device or a limited number of test devices.

    You can no more run .exe or .net applications on an iPad than you could on OS X or Linux. iOS (the iPad's operating system) is not compatible with Windows, not even a little bit, not even with an emulator. Can not be done.

    If you want to write an app for the iPad you will have to write it using tools designed to create programs for the iPad. Apple's XCode is the Apple approved developer environment. There are a few others.

    As a paid developer ($99 a year) apple gives you codes and tools that will let you install your own apps on your own devices. You can get the developer tools from Apple, create apps, and test them in emulation mode without paying anything. You just need to register. Oh yes, you need a Mac to run XCode.

    If you feel like learning how to develop your own apps you can do so for free. Go to iTunes on your iPad, click on 'iTunesU' at the bottom right hand side, select 'Universities and Colleges', then scroll to Stanford. Scroll right through the courses and you'll find a 25 lecture course on programming iPad apps. It's free and, by the end of the course, you'll be able to program some simple apps yourself. It's a great resource from one of the best Universities in the world.
