  • Great App!

    By Jay8307
    Great app! I have been using Plex for years and couldn’t imagine using anything else! Did want to point out to the developers that ever since I latest update I have been unable to access synced material. I can sync material from my server and it says complete, but I am unable to access that material. For example, when I open the app and it has the source in the upper left my phone is not listed despite it saying the material is synced to it. Please fix this ASAP! It is very annoying!
  • Streaming is Garbage

    Don’t waste your money, it literally works less than 1/3 of the time. Find another service
  • Where the H3LL are my folders??

    By Qjqjqjqjqjdjfgfh
    The stupid developers keep changing the app and now all of my folders are gone. I do NOT need any new “thrill of the moment” crap interface. Let me view my media the way I want to. You made me put it into folder and now you make it impossible for me to just look at the folders. On the FireTV app you force me to click twice to get into my folders. Stupid and not at all in line with good UX design. Stop adding crap. I don’t want news. I don’t want this horrible new interface. Add it if you want and allow me to opt-in if I want to use it. But let me save you dev effort. I DO NOT WANT IT.

  • No longer access downloads

    By Yurpy6
    I used to be able to download a movie from plex to my phone, and if I were to go camping I would be able to watch with no service. That feature is no longer there. What happened!? This app used to be great!
  • I hate this program with all my heart

    By good game!!!!!!.???
    This program has never ever worked right. It updates almost daily and you have to input all the acct data over and over and over again. I haven’t been able to watch tv or sports with this program for the entirety of the time that we’ve had it. A total waste of time and energy.
  • May I Never Upgrade Again

    By grreenthumb
    It was so nice. I knew where everything was. Now I cannot find what on my iPhone. Why do these people sit around and feel they have change look and feel. Don’t they have anything better to do? Where is my iPhone desktop on this app? Not good
  • What happened?

    By deleting-it
    Since the redesign getting to your local content is riddled with bugs and incomplete workflows. I am not sure why they assume that if you cannot connect to a remote server it would be an’s almost insulting that they throw an error in the middle of a valid use case, you know like when you want to view downloaded content.
  • I just like it at home...

    By nivekiswierd
    It’s great for organizing my media and playing on my TVs at home, I just have streaming issues everywhere else on my iPhone or Android tablet. So almost not worth paying for the premium if I’m not going to be able to use it outside of my home.
  • Plex 👎👎

    By ANeonChicken
    The Plex app for iPhones is the absolute worst. Any movie I’m trying to watch on there is limited to only 720p. Can’t go higher. My laptop will be fine with the Plex. Plex needs to fix the app.
