Was a great app but now it constantly becomes deactivated even after paying $5 for it. Everytime you hit the already paid button it offers to send an email to reactivate it. The response email then tells you to clear the cache/data for Play Store and Play Services and then sign back in and then reinstall Plex from the play store. Being an app developer I understand sometimes things go screwy but this is the 4th time in as many days this has happened. I could understand if this was happening on my rooted/modded phone but this is happening an a stock Galaxy S3. DEVS:Get on the ball!
Used to be decent but has gotten more and more bugs. Can barely play anything on my tablet. On my phone i have to Switch experimental player on/off depending on if i stream or play synced contents. And now i cant even open synced/local contents because i get a message saying it has lost connection to the server (i can browse server contents just fine, but not local/synced)
"If you previously purchased Plex for Android on Google Play, you don't need to pay again in order to activate this app. Send an email to email@example.com and we'll get it activated for you. Please make sure to include the Google Play email address you used when making your original purchase. It might take us a day or so to verify the purchase. Note: Purchases in other app stores (such as the Amazon App STore) do not transfoer over to the Google Play Store.. Got a Plex Pass? Close this dialog, sign into the application, and it will automatically be activated." I paid for this app but after a fresh install on my tablet I have to wait DAYS after manually sending an email with the gmail app before I can use it! I would never recommend this app in its current state.
Excellent app!! A must have for home network and streaming! I have always had a network full of my music, movies and TV shows & now with plex its like having my own personal netfix but better. plex has added all covers and description's to all my files so it looks the part and makes it easier for the family to choose a film to watch. Menu runs smooth & I can now stream all my media anywhere as long as I have 4G or wifi. I am yet to have a problem with plex only thing I could ask for is the ability to use multiple filters when browsing media. five star all day
Still a great app I'm sure some people have issues with the app but I can tell you that for me it's been nothing but silky smooth. User integration is flawless and brings much needed control to who sees what. Player works great...crystal clear...very few crashes...looks amazing!
What a change two years can bring. This app went from excellent to practically useless. Whatever the new buffer/lag/slow-computer feature is makes this worthless. No matter how powerful my server or how many resources I allocate the app still pops up that infernal "server is too slow" notice. Previous releases would at least pause while buffering then resume automatically. This app just freezes and sits there. Really, really bad. My advice to other users? Avoid this version at all costs. Use the web console to stream your content. May 2013 - Just updated to the latest-n-greatest. This thing is AWESOME! Resume feature works EVERY time now, not just when it feels like it. I have a toggle for subtitles (magical!!), my library loads faster, as do my chosen titles. Very VERY good work on this last release guys. I'm gushing here, i know, but i can't get over how slick this new release is! Well done!
- Fix bug which could cause the selected section in the home screen to change unexpectedly.
- [TV layout] Don't crash while browsing Watch Later / Recommended content if no server is available.
- [TV layout] Show correct title and subtitle for TV show seasons on the 'Recently Added' section.
