comment NXT Programming not working
For a Text Block, which displays text or images on the LCD panel, it is important the add a Wait Block after the Text Block, to give time to view the LCD panel before the program ends. Wait for 10 seconds should help.

comment Compatibility EV3 software with NXT brick - known limits?
iPad has no USB and doesn't support bluetooth. Even if NXT-G was available, how would it connect to a NXT brick?

comment What are the memory requirements of EV3-G software blocks running on NXT bricks?
I did run into one case of a MyBlock taking unusual amounts of memory. It turned out to be that adding the MyBlock to a program before closing the source program used to create the MyBlock caused the memory usage to explode. Can you check to see if this explains the memory increase you're seeing? I tested 10 blocks and the memory usage NXT-G vs EV3-G was nearly identical.
