  • Fantastic! Fantastic! (One feature I want)

    By bennybaconburger
    I absolutely love being able to watch movies from my own media server. Plex makes it a seamless experience. The only feature I would want is being able to sync only a portion of certain chapters or specific time range of a movie. I am typically watching only about 30 minutes of the media offline. I feel like it would be beneficial to have this feature mostly if I don't have a lot of time to wait for the transcode. I'll restate, there is no other media server that can compete with Plex.
  • Love the new update!

    By FreekieGeekie
    Loving the new update Plex made for the iOS, tvOS and PlayStation 4. Haven’t yet seen the new update for my Samsung Smart TV, but I won’t doubt it looks very similar. The whole new experience is dope and you guys fixed the AirPlay issue so now I can cast to PS4 and tv more streamlined than ever before, as well as the entire software. This update is really good. Five stars Plex. Keep up with the maintenance.
  • Quit wasting time with useless features and fix the bugs.

    By Name675
    The DVR remains an undependable mess while Plex screws around with fringe features no one cares about. Dump the podcasts. Dump the news. Dump the web shows. Smartphones already come with music apps. Focus on the reason people use Plex: watch TV and movies.
  • Plex = the best.

    By You-asked-for-it
    Plex is amazing. The end.
  • Pretty good, when it works

    Overly complicated. Very buggy. Features touted don’t always work. Inconsistent at best. Air video which I had before this was easy to use and rock solid. If this only worked consistently with basic functionality it’d be fantastic and 5 stars. Lack of decent support lowers this to 2 stars. Probably better options out there but they already have my money. Disappointing.
  • Navigation amongst different device player

    By klaatu909
    Difficult to create a standard look to find content. Drives my wife. Crazy. Any help out there?
  • Can’t stream without purchase

    By Panda Drew
    You can’t watch any of your content without paying $5 once per device or getting the “Premium” pass for $5 a month forever.
  • Horrible redesign. Bring back source list!

    By fonehome
    This new design is utterly horrible, confusing and cluttered. Please bring back the old Plex or at least bring back the source list which made every folder one swipe away. Now you have to tap all over the place to get to all my sources and folders. It makes no sense how this is better. Plex website and Media Player has this source list as the main page so why take that away from the app. This new design puts things all over the place and looks extremely cluttered and has sections I never asked for. First time I tried it I couldn’t even find my Other videos. Each section looks completely disorganized now with sections made up that make no sense and ones I can’t remove or customize. There’s a playlist section yet I have no playlists. Top Movies by Woody Allen?? Who decided that should be there? Why can’t I remove it? Why can’t I just go straight to All Movies? Everything seems so random without the option to organize these home pages. Bring back the list of sources as is on the website PLEASE. Everything requires way more tapping now. Completely unintuitive navigation. Before I would swipe and pick a movie folder or any of my Other sources from just a swipe and now you have to tap at the bottom and then the top left corner, the most difficult to reach, just to get to see my other sources and then do it again to see tv shows or films. How is this better interface design than a simple swipe to see everything versus 3 taps now?? And the fact that chaning volume still brings up all the controls and covers a third of the screen is beyond distracting and unnecessary. Time to adopt a minimal volume slider notification as in youtube style or any other video app.
  • Terrible

    By ttpilot
    I would give this no stars if I could. All I want this thing to do is show the video categories I’ve organized on my server—as I ordered them. As it is, I can’t find anything
