Been using TS Pro for a few months now (including trial version). I came from a sony lcd remote (rm-av3100 and other precursors). I like the TS app, using it on a samsung tab2 7. The app has some development "teething" but is moving along, at least my view. It can do most things and if not, as the previous poster indicated, support is pretty good at getting at issues.
Things that you should be aware of and are more applicable to touch screens in general, is people find the loss of "common" hard button functions hard to adapt to. Related to tablet based solutions as opposed to dedicated remotes, battery life may be an issue. I have mine "AC tethered" most of the time which can be a good feature or bad. Cord is short so it can't be easily moved / passed around the room.... but then you always know where to find it which in my case, is the favorite listening / watching place in the home theater / family room.
Personally, for the $200 that you can get the samsung tab2 and the app for, it is probably one of the best remotes out there for andriod based units. I use the TS app for control of 8 devices from lighting (x10), to receivers, players, TV, and media player (old xbox). Used in conjunction with the built in Peel for programming, I think it is a good "1,2" combination.
