The easiest way, at least for me, to get an app into /system/app is to use Root Explorer to copy the apk into /system/app.

To do this:
  • In Root Explorer, copy the apk file you want to put in /system/app
  • Navigate to the /system/app directory
  • Tap the Mount R/W button on the top right
  • Tap Paste
  • Scroll down to the pasted apk, long press on it and select Permissions (you'll see 9 check boxes when you do this)
  • Check the Read and Write buttons for User, and only the Read boxes next to Group and Others, then tap OK (once you're done, the read/write permissions under the app name should be the same as all the other apps listed (rw-r--r--))
  • Reboot.
