I suppose you could make a GUI, by why? Given that you'll have to be working on a jailbroken device, anyway, one could just as well use one of the numerous terminal emulators now floating around for jailbroken iOS. That said, the idea of people writing Haskell on phones and iPads and so on makes me just a little bit grinny.
