This is a big deal. Unfortunately, English does not have the depth and breath of Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic. The conventions used to translate the Scripture into English have become very standard over the years.

I went and checked my YouVersion iPod touch app which links to an online version of the NIV and it is correct.

I have been considering downloading one of the stand alone NIV apps. Does anyone have any experience with them and can you verify whether or not this issue shows up in any or all of them?
When it come to online versions of the NIV bible, it seems to be in good shape. I have never come across a problem with biblegateway, crosswalk, and etc.

I am not familiar with ipod apps. I am not sure you will be able to check out the source easily, but I would try. Right now, this seems to just be an ebook issue. From what I can tell, their text parser just didn't get it right. Simple fix if that's all it is. No idea where the app would get the NIV bible from though.
