Cdog: You'll want to take a look at DSLR CONTROLLER. Works perfectly with the google Nexus 7. This combination sets THE standard for how we should be using these tablets in the field.
The app is android only, which is a shame as the Ipad retina screen is best but the form factor (and price) of the nexus 7 is actually preferred for this application. Here's some feature's, and it's only in Beta. (the light weight of the Nexus allows me to attach it to my tripod using a manfrotto nanoclamp and a belkin fat gecko.) The 7" tab actually fits in my pocket and camera bag so I actually take it with me!

One thing to consider, wet the bottom down a little bit (spit will do!) to give it a better seal. Do a test run above a soft surface before committing too. If you attach it dry, it will fall off eventually, I did a video shoot for 4 hours today and had no problems (wet it down first).

They make a dedicated mount for the ipad Waiting/hoping DSLR Controller will find a solution for apple, there are many more options for mounts, cases etc for the ipad and offers a bigger screen.

It's nice to know if you have a cable and either a tablet or an android phone all you need is to carry a cable and you have a remote, timer for bulb, long exposure, HDR, time lapse etc and off camera monitor at your disposal whenever. Not absolutely necessary but handy, especially if your already on android.
