So, I wonder why there is not a way of putting one's iPad app onot the 
web in a way (and I don't mean via Cydia)
that will allow people to download it onto their tablets independently, 
as one can do on an Android device?

Therefore allowing those "millions" of people (i.e. the 25 who are 
interested in "Fred Flintstone's" app) the abi;lity to choose for 
themselves.
