WinBoard is a Windows program; various operating systems are not compatible with each other. (Except that OSX has some support for Linux programs.)

I have no Apple stuff, but what I understood is that iOS (used on iPad) does not allow the separation between GUI and engines. (Apps cannot invoke each other there.) So engines available for iPad come as apps with their own GUI.
