Default Ipad Apps. Universal remote control?????

Has anyone come across an app that can be a remote for your entertainment system? or an app that could make someone rich could be an app that turns your ipad into a touch screen remote control for any of your toy's, think about it, they could sell high powered receivers that can be put in all types of models, boats, cars, planes ect. The software would always be upgradable, you should be able to have a multitude of channel options, screen/controller layout options, on screen telementry and data logging and so forth, it's endless what could be customized. A fully programable remote control app that could opperate all your toy's and home entertainment needs, I want it. This kind of app would make a meal of companies like logitech and other home based remote manufactures not to mention the rc based like specktrum and fubata.

For a home entertainment system it would be nice and I am sure there are some out there but for RC.... I would not even consider it. As buggy as those things are I would not trust them with anything RC related....

There are some indoor RC heli's that can be flown with an iPhone and I have seen a video on running an RC car with one but no thanks. As far as a remote for a TV or stereon system it's probably easier to reach the ones on my coffee table.
