I have a MySQL database that I would like to create a simple IPad front-end for.
The database is accessibly locally in the office via WiFi connection. Is there a tool or an APP that will allow me to create some forms for viewing and data-entry? Thanks.

Probably quickest easiest way is to create a website using jquery mobile.  Since your users need to be on the office wifi there is no reason to create a native app for ipad.  Also a site with jquery mobile will not be restricted to just ipad or ios.  You would need to create a web server and code to display the data how you want and you front-end it with jquery mobile.

I agree that building a custom app is overkill in this case. I had considered building a web interface to distribute this, but I am trying to avoid writing all the PHP that goes along with it.
Jquery is very cool and I can see using it in the future, but if I'm reading the documentation correctly, I'll still have to program the database interface myself.

I was hoping for a product like FileMaker that works with MySQL which will allow me to build queries and forms quickly. Thanks!

Nothing here that is "plug and play" but thanks for the information.
Looks like I'll be using JQuery and learning PHP.
