@dvader9: I've done ad hoc deployment to local iPads. The template works well on the few examples I've tried. The modifications I had to make to the info.plist file are the "LSRequiresIPhoneOS" key as I mentioned above and that "Skip Install" flag in the Build Settings that you mentioned.
The kids in my class will soon be creating apps for submission -- I'll let everyone know how that goes.
@OMZ: Thanks again for all your work!
