Please Change Something I love this application, most every Plex application/channel available on my devices and I really love the media server software. But I have one issue with the Android application here. I would love to see you change the display of the album artist tag on a music track to display the track artist tag. It is particularly frustrating with compilation albums I have tagged as Various Artists. So please, change this! I've voiced this opinion on your forum as well.
Watch Later not working for Channels Any shows I add to the Watch Later list from Channels I am unable to play. The only way to play is to go to the channels directly. Not a big deal, but defeats the purpose of having a Watch Later option for Channels. I think this may actually be a server issue. The same thing happens when using the Plex app from the Windows store installed on the same computer as the Plex server app.
Fragile App Each release seems to fix some things and break others. Really disappointing that it isn't more stable. Unbelievable.
Excellent This is my go to media streamer. Use it on my phone, tablet, chrome cast and roku. All works great and easily organizes my movies and shows.
Good App I like the app and it works fine. My complaint is the layout on my phone is nothing like the screen shots in the play store.
For viewing videos in their library, this is a great app. The Android app works exactly like its cousin on Roku and other set top boxes. I recently bought a HD Homerun TV tuner so I can watch broadcast TV on my mobile devices. Setting it up on the Plex server required quite a bit of searching on the web. Viewing TV experience is not even anywhere close to using a real TV. It takes several seconds to see an image after selecting a channel. To switch channels, you must first back out of the current channel to channel list, then you scroll to find and select the channel, and then you touch the play button. After all that, you must wait several seconds for the image to appear. There is no program information for channel you are watching. There is supposed to be a plug-in that adds this function, but I have yet to find it. Forget about channel surfing! Plus, it seems to require a lot of bandwidth. While watching remotely away from my home network, I have to switch to SD format before I can even see anything.
