I hate to interrupt the discussion of how evil Apple is because of its App Store or whatever, but back to the original question of getting photos of an iPad: Have you tried GPhoto?

My understanding is that iOS devices (unlocked iOS devices anyway) use PTP to transfer the photos.  GPhoto appears to support PTP, therefore should work to transfer photos from your iOS device to your laptop via USB cable.

Both iPads and iPhones are listed in GPhoto2’s “supported cameras” list.
