If you are after the off-line syncing capability look elsewhere for Android, as it is broken most of the time (check the plex android forums for numerous unanswered issues). Will stream content ok most of the time however the android experience as a whole is not worth the money and I regret my plex pass subscription.
This app is by the far the best I've used. Great layout, awesome importing of cover art and title descriptions. I use it with my Google chromecast and to cast to my Samsung smart tv (without additional hardware) this is a must for anyone with any type of digital home media. Plex supports so many file types it's hard not to love this app. So in all KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK GUYS! Not sure how this app can be improved, but I'm looking :-)
Syncs TV shows and movies seemingly fine. Can go into airplane mode and they play. Get on an actual plane a week later and boom, plex can't find media, rendering this solution worthless . I got this and paid the subscription as part of my cable cutting - use tablo to record off air. So far, this hasn't done a good job of replacing direct genie go.
This app sucks on the Mi Box. My network is fine I never have any issues except with this app. It works fine and then randomly says playback has stopped because the connection was lost. If I use the older Plex app built into my Samsung smart TV, no issues. Streams original quality. It's this app, doesn't work right on the Mi Box.
Since the last update(18.104.22.168) the unwatched sticker of tv shows is missing. It's showing up in the movies section, but not in the tv shows section. Since november or so I can't use it right with chromecast since it plays for a while and than it stops. The volume control while streaming on chromecast is broken aswell since around november. I really can't understand why you would update an app that used to work just to break it.
This app no longer works with Chromecast. Media plays for a bit but then stops playing all of a sudden for no reason. You have to stop and restart. If you go online and do a search, other people are having the same problem too with Plex and Chromecast. It's been broken since November time last year. Most WMV files are also blocky and unwatchable on this app, yet they work in the Windows 10 Plex App fine. Again WMV content used to be fine.
