It looks like it will do most anything you want with your A/V systems but for the list price of $129.99 I don't see it as a big player any time soon.
Yes, I saw that, but I believe that does not make use of the S4's IR blaster. Instead, you use that app along with a piece of Logitech hardware. The hardware sits on your network, and the app just sends a signal through your network to the hardware, which then sprays out the required IR signal to your gear.

Seems like the S4 plus a very capable app should be able to do it all, including macros, etc.
