Is there a way to record macros and replay them? I want to record real touchscreen and keyboard presses I make when I'm using an app, and be able to "replay" them later to repeat the same actions.

Something like iMacro, but for Android instead of Firefox.

You would need root for this with a 100% certainty, and the development for root apps isn't like that of regular apps (due to cash flow), with a few notable exceptions (like TitaniumBackup, which still works a little bit without root I guess). I would say that there's almost certainly nothing like this out there ready made, although it's obviously possible for anyone with the programming skills. –  bigbadonk420 Nov 8 '13 at 13:01
    
How to implement it effectively? The way I can currently imagine is just ptrace'ing Android's system process, temporarily overriding data coming from /dev/input/event* file descriptors. –  Vi0 Nov 8 '13 at 22:48
