I've seen a short youtube video of someone doing what I want, but no explanation was given. I would like a text input box on the iPad which would send that string data to the Arduino. Any ideas?

I appreciate the heads up but the $50 connection seems steep to me. This guy did it without the aid of special equipment:

He likely jail broke the iPad.

I don't mind jailbreaking an iPad, I just have no clue where to start. I'm a little surprised there isn't much info out there about this.

You might not need to jailbreak, but you will need a Mac, Xcode and $99 to put your program on the iPad by joing the Apple Developer program. Check out the Apple developer forums:

This sounds far simpler and safer than trying to establish hardware connections to the iPad.

I just thought about it but there is another solution but you'll still need an ethernet shield. There is an app called Arduino Manager in the app store that allows you to control various elements on your Arduino through your ipad. In the description for the app it says there is a way to send text commands to the board which should allow you to do what is shown in the video above.

BTW You can do it the way the video shows but it is much harder to accomplish because you'll need to be able to create your own IOS app.

True but you still need an app to do something with that connection. I'm not trying to discourage the OP from taking that route if he really wants but more than likely if he is asking these questions he probably isn't familiar with programming IOS apps and probably doesn't realize how tough it will be.
