Is it possible to launch an IOS app without being in the app store, those avoiding the 30% cost and the feedback?  Does IOS let you be a compatible IOS app, but not have to be listed in the app store?

The short answer is NO .. you cannot .. unless you are targetting users with jailbroken iOS devices.

Only jailbroken iOS devices can install apps from outside the Apple iTunes App Store.

The only other option is with a developer or enterprise license you can install a limited number of devices with your app without going through the App Store but this is really only viable for internal company use and development.
