If a parish has an altar missale, it's ridiculous to use an ipad instead.  It's even far more ridiculous and utterly irreverent to leave it on the altar <i>as if it was</i> a table.  Or leave it on the table, for that matter. 

If he's using it simply to read his sermon or look at notes for it, no problem- but there's no reason it should be anywhere but on the pulpit itself, and set up there before mass.  The congregation shouldn't really even notice.  It's a terrible sign of disrepect to simply put things not in use that have no liturgical purpose on the altar.  The only excuse I can see is if the parish actually didn't have a missal.  But considering i-pads are 5 or 6 hundred dollars and I can get an altar missal on Ebay for 3, there's no excuse.  None at all.  I would talk to the priest/and if that doesn't work, report it to your bishop. 
yes he is using the ipod instead of the altar missale - the missale is no where to be found!!
