I purchased the Tab 2 specifically for the irblaster function. After messing with Peel for a short time, decided that it wouldn't meet my needs. I found an app called Touchsquid that looks promising. It has just been released with support for the Tab 2 in May, so there are still a few bugs, but it is very customizable. There is a free trial app that has limited functions, but gives you a chance to see how it works. The full function "home" version is $19, so it's costly - but worth it if it works out. So far, it looks promising. There is a bit of a learning curve.
