The EOS Remote App... the images refer to the 7D. How will the 7D connect remotely to a smartphone/tablet?

Via Wireless File Transmitter, I suppose. WFT-E5 is the model for 7D.

Hopefully EOS Remote will support 5D3 + Eye-Fi.

I've got that combination and it would be great if it did, but close to no chance in my opinion. The Eye-Fi is only functioning as a normal SD card that also happens to be able to transmit them remotely. While technically you could use the memory bus to transfer live-view images and start a capture etc it would need extensive cooperation between Canon and Eye-Fi to work, if they'd done that already I'd expect they would have also written software to be able to use the capability from at least a PC.

Most third-party apps seem to need the camera connected over USB to a laptop / PC with Wi-Fi as victorwol said. If you're talking about the official Canon app I think it's only for the 6D, you probably need a 7D Mk 2 :P.
