You can buy an app on an app store, or have one developed to special task either inserted directly in to the tools you use like Excel or on SharePoint.
I personally am looking at Excel apps, as I think for Big Data this is going to be a killer app.
Things are changing in the App world for SharePoint, Microsoft is doing what it does best, copying what other people have already made. And Office and SharePoint are embracing the App model based on open web standards.

We all know that iPads and Android tables are great. But we also almost all have felt that these new tools sadly are not so useful at work. I have found that Office 365 actually can bridge the gap, allowing me to use my iPads as a tool to create documents, wikis, lists and links in my iPad.
I am currently working with SharePoint in Office 365. Though full use of Office 365 on iPad is not possible. Office 365 needs Napa which does not run on any of the browsers, and you can't open Office documents. But, if you configure you SharePoint site to open documents in browsers an Office 365 site will let you suddenly turn an iPad in to a enterprise productivity tool with all of major Office features.
