  • Used to be great

    By Timp7778989
    I used to love Plex but with each update the apps get worse and worse and less reliable. A new problem every time. The iOS app has such a difficult time connecting to the server- even when I’m in front of my computer with the server open and running and strong WiFi connection and multiple app restarts. It’s a shame how something originally so great is now mostly just headaches.
  • Great

    Been a PLEX subscriber a few years now. Always wanted an efficient way to broadcast local media content and through trial and error settled with this program. Media response is quick and precise with buffering not a big problem. Glad to see extra features such as Web Cast, Pod Cast and such. Great addition to my tech arsenal.
  • Works everywhere for everything

    By IGotNothin
    One of the most useful apps ever. I can watch or listen to everything I want on any device I want where ever I want. High quality streams, easy to use.
  • Amazing!

  • Bug

    By KathitKhambhla
    I love the app and eveything is good except for one little bug that i think need the developers attention. I watch plex on the website from my laptop and also from the app in my phone. What happens is if i start watching a series from my phone and watch a couple of episodes on it and then if i get on my computer and try to watch it on the website then there is an issue where the discrption is the same of the epiode of a certain series i was watching but when i play its a complete different episode of the same series I was watching. So if you could fix that bug everything would be back to normal

    Never wants to work. Working great for awhile can not get to work manually either 32400 on nothing works anymore. Keep changing the look of the app current layout is horrible not user friendly at all
  • Plex is the best!

    By weiland Labs
    I’ve purchased this application years ago and enjoyed it every time. It’s user friendly and snappy. It’s truly great and I’d recommend it to anyone with an iPhone and a Plex server. The one time price of the application is worth it. Update: I had an issue with finding my server on a different sub-domain, but after contacting the Plex Dev team fixed my client issue in mere days! Seriously awesome guys! You rock!
  • Not really worth the $ HOWEVER...I’ll still support the developers. For a bit more

    By Baxstar24
    🤷🏽‍♂️ works sometimes. Can’t ever really watch outside my house without restarting several times. In my house I have to restart serval times a day. Which is fine for me the nerd of the house but not so much for other people.

    Can’t adjust the stream quality most of the time for seemingly no reason. Makes a bunch of my shows unplayable on mobile.
