  • Scam Likely

    By TericaN
    You are required to pay a one-time penalty for streaming your video collection from your server on your network to your iPad. Apple, are you aware of this behavior?
  • No words

    By qwerty keykid
    It is just amazing I just don't have the words to describe it
  • Bad

    Even to playback your content you have synced on your iPhone you still need an internet connection. Even though you have set it in „offline browsing“ you still need an internet connection in order to access your content. Explain that to me please. Worst app on my iPhone.
  • The best app I have installed on my cellphone

    By Khaley Klein
    By far its the most used application I have, also, Just mias the option to select separated servers instead of all library’s of the same kind at one place, but still, the best app I have installed

  • I love Plex

    By ChristopherMN12
    Best media system, period.
  • Roll it back and try again

    By Jasf316
    The new UI is just awful. It won't connect to my main server but it connects to others. The only way I've found to pick the main server is reset the new and improved abysmal home screen which gives me the only place to pick a server. I'm deleting this from my iPhone and if it's the same on the iPad I'll probably cancel Plex entirely. I travel a lot and download stuff on my iPad but if it cannot see my main server than why use it.
  • Music player freezes

    By J McMahan
    Sometimes if I pause a song and than click play it will not start. However if I force close the app and open it again I can get the song to start. Please fix this nagging flaw!
  • Can’t switch servers

    By Vermontier
    I have two servers on Mac and a PC. There is no way I can switch between these two servers on my iPad.
  • Great App, but needs to be more standardized

    By WeaselSW
    Plex is a great way to share and have your media wherever you go, but for some reason each app for each device functions differently and has different features. For instance, using Plex on your iPad may give you the option to save to a playlist, but then when using Plex on your smart TV, that option is not there. They layout may be different as well. It also can use more customization features for the home page...for instance I would want just a list of movies, and you cant do that. The only options are recently added, recently played, etc.
