  • Doesn’t Work!!!

    By LadyFair07
    Put in password and app crashes
  • Works great for streaming, painfully slow for sync

    By Cory_Wil
    If paying for Plexpass and plan on syncing content be warned that all syncs performed are transcoded. Causing the sync to fail or at best take forever. Great at streaming though, as long as the settings on the target device is right.
  • Forces tou to update tour OS

    By kdarnay
    Plex just unleashed a surprise update that immediately disconnects Mac users who aren’t updated to current OS. I have Plex on 3 Roku devices and my cellphone. But overnight a few days ago, Plex uploaded its player “update” that now no longer connects to my Plex server. You get error messages saying Plex server needs to be at least 1.1 something or higher — even tho I’m running the current version. Plex is NOT backward compatible for users. You have to upgrade or quit using Plex. Since I have a number of legit reasons for not upgrading, I have to quit Plex and find alternative software. Plex is poor at communicating with its customers, apparently doesn’t test on various software OS versions (or desn’t care), springs surprise updates that aren’t user friendly or intuitive. Avoid this for now — until they figure it out.
  • On iPhone XS Max the Plex app crashes as soon as it starts

    By Kellik06
    This app crashes as soon as it starts on my phone.
  • Used to be easier to use

    By David of Kansas
    I can't even copy a Playlist from my server into my iPhone anymore. I have to make a new one from scratch.
  • Great in many ways...

    By mjchernis
    This is my go-to media app for my home media collection. Been using it with a Plex Server for years now. Functionality is fantastic but the interface has gotten cluttered and confusing. They update often so I’m hoping 6.0 version will fix the more recent UI weirdness.
  • Awesome. Nothing compares

    By justinsane1
    The best media library manager and player. Buy a plex pass and support it. Now add Tidal and live TV and never leave the app!
  • New design

    By dcdlim4
    Let me start by saying I love Plex the app and all of the possibilities it has and are working on. Let me finish by saying I hate the new IOS design. Please bring back the old design
  • 😐

    By IPADadocious
    Can’t sync. iOS says your server is offline when it’s not. 😐 doesn’t work
  • No iPad Pro Splitscreen

    By Butters48
    My setup at home is an 27” Asus ROG monitor with my iPad Pro connected to it via USB-C. When I use Plex, it properly displays out to the external monitor and is using the full screen instead of just mirroring my iPad display. This is great! However, other apps like Infuse 5 and Twitch allow you to use the app on the iPad to be ran in splitscreen. This gives you the ability to have a video playing full screen on your monitor, 1/3 of the iPad screen to be the app playing the media, and the 2/3 of the iPad screen can be used for whatever you want. I’m hoping they release an update for this soon. Being able to watch shows/movies on my external monitor while I multitask on my iPad screen would be great!
