    Okay so the S4 has all these fantastic built in little sensors but what apps are taking advantage of them?
    I know the IR Blaster is used with WATCHON. But does anyone know any 3rd party apps that take advantage
    of the IR Blaster, humidity sensor or ambient temperature sensor?

    Weather Signal in the play store uses the weather related sensors.

    Sorry, it was recently taken down from the play store due to unknown reasons, but I emailed them and they said they were working with Google to get it back up again.

    Ya I noticed that. I found their site and the APK But I am a little apprehensive to install it because it was removed from the play store and I have no idea why.

    Just go ahead and try it out, I still use it, a lot better than watch on which only allows you to control your TV, this app however, the list is endless. I even control my xbox with it.
