  • Beware! A wonderful thing gone VERY BAD!!!!!!

    By Hoods robin
    We have had PLEX for a long time and the recents updates screwed up EVERYTHING about it that was AMAZING!!!!!! My daughter is a super tech and spent a great deal of time loading it up with great content. She and I HATE the “upgrade”ed version! I’m writing this so nobody will spend their hard earned money and get something that LOOKS like Amazon or Netflix, but doesn’t work like AMAZON or Netflix! I will never understand why companies that have produced a good product always have to make changes that force people to deal with THEIR crazy concepts, which they call “updates”, but they end up being DOWNGRADES!!!!! If anybody reading this has made the mistake of UPGRADING to WINDOWS 10, then you’ll know exactly what I mean!!! The programmers think they have to keep making changes in order to safe guard their jobs, but the upgrades, 99% of the time, just drive people CRAZY!!!!! Run don’t walk away from this program.
  • $5 to unlock a broken app

    By masterchief9567
    Why is it that if I skip songs all of a sudden I get no audio unless I pause the song and play it again? Also if I pick a song from my library while it is in the tracks view why does it start playing the song as if I started it from the album? This app is just as broken on iPhone as it is on android. I paid twice for this trash.
  • Latest update is a total mess

    By Jdsteven
    The latest update is a really big leap backward in usability and I absolutely hate using it now.
  • Make your own Netflix

    By Gradinkoff
    If you have a ton of digital video files then plex is great for organizing and watching them.
  • New UI is awful, this App went from great to useless quick

    By Gund1234
    I am a Plex pass member for 2 years now, loved Plex, but I have given up. I have Home Videos, Other Videos, Movies, TV Shows, I can’t find Home Videos in the library section, I find Home Videos in Other Videos section. I can’t find other videos library, but I can search titles in other videos & play them but I can’t browse them. I was really hoping that this new update released today will fix this issue, I was disappointed to find that it doesn’t. And I don’t care about podcasts & news and I don’t want them in my search.
  • Pleeeeeeease fix this crap app!!!

    Horrid redesign. New Coke all over again. When does version 4.29 come out again????
  • Great idea but flawed app

    By Jake j85602
    Things were great for a while and somehow an update screwed it all up for me. A basic thing got dropped from its features. Screen not falling asleep on you while playing in the app would be great. I hate having to turn off the feature in my phone settings only to remember to turn it back on when I’m done watching it. It’s about to burn a hole in my pocket or start on fire if I forget. A bit of an exaggeration but it’s frustrating that I never had to screw with things until a recent update. iOS 11.4 on iPhone 8 Plus
  • New app is horrid

    By TimStephens
    Too much clicking just to get to unwatched/unplayed tv show filter every time I open the app. The old version was quick but there’s only a small subset of things I can add to the home screen and while unwatched movies is one, unwatched tv is not.
  • Used to be good

    By brick_jersey_johnny
    Terrible UI changes, and app takes forever to load library (even while on LAN with server).
  • Gets better all the time

    By LBIP
    The Plex Tv app still needs work but the quality is mpressive.
