I do on occasion. Here was an article we recently did on the subject.

My (previous)instructor would bring his along on our cross country flights. They are pretty cool, having access to fore flight etc....but I personally prefer the old fashioned method.

 

An iPad is great, but being an electronic device, it's prone to any number of failures (however unlikely). It also takes up a lot of room on your leg. They certainly aren't small...this might not be such an issue in a larger bird, but R-22's aren't exactly spacious, especially if you're 6'3"

 

In any event, I would make sure I always had a paper backup.
