Apple's App Store license is incompatible with the GNU GPL (all versions).
Apple would allow the license conflict but a contributor could contest it
and it would be pulled from the app store (much like what happened to VLC
for iPhone).  For now a great graphics program in the App store is Art
Studio for iPad <>.  I've got that
one and found it very easy to use knowing how to use Gimp.

Other than that, I doubt Gimp will ever come to the iOS App Store unless
Apple modifies it's terms to be GNU GPL friendly.  Email Apple about it
with the request.
