Works good except for crummy interface I like this app a ton. For me, it's been much better than PlayOn, etc. Still, the interface is terribly confusing. Initially finding what you've recorded doesn't make any sense (to me) at all. It insists on Views that may not be the view you want. They would be better served to clean up the Interface before adding features.
Thumbs up from me!!!! Great app and works like it says on the tin. Great if you have kids as you can watch films on your phone (I use it on my android phone) while you wait to drop them of at school. My only gripe is that for every device you use it on you have to activate it either with a subscription or a one off payment. If you use it on multiple devices can be costly but saying that it's worth every penny.
Best home server Great most of the time. It has all of the options I need and want, it's just sometimes not intuitive. Other then that it's my go to program for personal music, photos and video
Android app can no longer see a Plex server on a local network on a Samsung phone at the very least.... iOS devices fine.... PLEASE FIX!!!!!!!!!!! UPDATE: I had to change my Plex settings to "Preferred' for Secure Connections. I had to disable this to get my XBox to work though; so 3 stars for now until I can confirm all devices work. (Used to be 5 stars!)
Which side of the fence? I'm a tech enthusiasts and I'm not convinced I'll be any more than that... I've read many reviews about this app. I have no idea how to transcode video or to set play back options for different files. That doesn't mean I do not want the same options available to me as a seasoned technology professional. Thus, plex is a dream for someone like me. On the technical side of the fence plex does all the heavy lifting. Allowing me to do more enjoyable content consuming. To the folks at plex... Keep it coming.! 😇
Missing key features UPDATED: They have since added Playlist syncing and the app is much improved. - - - I like being able to control my media but the app is mixing some key features. You cannot download by playlists. When you sync you cannot play all songs you have to go album by album. Those items make the music side nearly untenable.
• 'Switch to TV layout' option would freeze the app on some phones.
