More ads that most free streaming services. I calculated 18 minutes of adds during an 140 minute film, not including the long waits as certain ads (Jenny Craig, Anderson Windows) repeatedly took exceptionally long to load. Even worse is there seems to be no algorithm or any sense used to determine when an ad break occurs - including smack in the middle of the climactic battle scenes. Still get 2 stars because it is functional and other than the ads, the movie itself did not have playback issues

Perfect for my own server. Not sure why so many are complaining since I haven't had a single issue with the app on mobile or on my roku tv. I created my own server, linked it to my tv, done. Everything is organized, plays perfectly, nothing is cluttered, and I can add friends if I wanted to. (UPDATE 9/29/22) The only issue I seem to find is the download feature for Plex is horrible. Episodes and movies never download fully without getting a error. Doesn't matter if I'm on mobile or wifi.

the app is a UX disaster. having to re login all the time is frustrating. different looking buttons doing the same thing. adopting a different order of subjects for your server then the web app. EDIT It gets worse. I walk away from Wi-Fi for a minute my playing stops and now I have a flashing "an error occurred while playing this item" in the bottom of my screen that won't go away until I reboot. And now it doesn't work on Wi-Fi but it works on mobile data just fine. Jeez
