    Make a web app.
    Put it on a web server.
    Give your customers the URL of the web server.

    Seriously. Your entire app consists of "Enter your email address", a blank field where the address is entered, and a "Submit" button. All the hard parts are going to be on the server that's receiving the submitted form data. The web app doesn't even need JavaScript, it's just a simple HTML form.

    After you get the web-app working (which includes all the server-side stuff), you can turn it into an iApp with tools like:
    Sencha: http://www.sencha.com/
    PhoneGap: http://www.phonegap.com/
    QuickConnect: http://sourceforge.net/projects/quickconnect/

    Here's an example iPad app made using PhoneGap:

    It's a much more substantial app than the simple email-address-submitter.
