There should be no reason that the developer of those Flash apps can't create a version to run on iOS devices, submit the apps to the iOS App Store, and have them accepted. Adobe's Greg Wilson (@gregsramblings and http://gregsramblings.com) has a bunch of information on his website on how to do this. FWIW, the same tech can be used to generate Android apps. For users of the apps, you should contact the publisher and ask that they publish your apps for iOS. If this software is required or recommended by the course instructor, you should also contact the instructor and ask him to contact the publisher. This should be a win-win for publishers of such Flash apps: their apps will be available for a whole new segment of the marketplace, and they can easily update the apps whenever desired in the iOS store. Ask your iPad-buddies at your school and other schools to do the same.
