No, there are apps for everything in the Apple store. Oh, I have little 
doubt that you can find stuff it doesn't do. But it would have to be 
something pretty specialized.    Apple does keep a pretty tight grip on 
what is in the store but, that does have it's benefits. It's not that 
different than debian keeping a tight grip on what's in the debian 
repository. The main difference is that you don't have to do anything to 
go outside the repository. But then debian doesn't offer any warranty 
and Apple does.
