But...you will need a Mac to build those apps with Xcode and load them into your device. The process is very easy, requires a few seconds and it's almost automatic. Xcode is free on the Mac App store. And if Apple decides to release Xcode for the iPad, things will be even better. With iOS9 we got this new possibility. It's my favourite iOS9 feature. It's a small, but very important, bit of freedom and I hope we will get great apps that can't be on the App store. Until today things were very calm...but... But today is a special day: the f.lux team released a version of f.lux ready to be loaded on non jailbroken iOS devices. It's probably one of the most useful Apps you can have on your iPhone, iPad and Mac and I recommend giving it a try if you have never heard about it, because it's one of those small things that can make your digital life better. That said, it's not f.lux per se...the important thing is that this might start something bigger and more important. I hope other apps will follow. Having an alternative to the App Store and its rules is an important part of the process that will make the iPad an alternative to traditional laptops. Check out f.lux and follow the instructions to install it on your devices: https://justgetflux.com/sideload/ Note: iOS9.2 is still not supported by the stable version of Xcode. Keep this in mind.
