  • Latest Update Unreliable

    By DrMemory99
    If you have to switch between servers or have other personal categories of media then this version, for me, does not work for selecting servers from the home screen (long press doesnt work on my ipad pro) and the library navigation is confusing for personal media categories (training videos one example for me) The earlier version was more reliable and logical
  • Was a 5 Star app, until recently

    By AmorOmniaVincit
    Recent changes have made this app confusing and frustrating to work with, especially with previously synced items, and ability to select a server to view, rather than “movie” and “tv show”. If the app worked as well as the server app did on my Mac, I’d give it a 5 star rating.
  • Useless on an IPad ....unless $$$

    By Moodytx
    I have to be missing something somewhere. Server on PC. Check. organized and playback App on Roku devices. check. Stream like a dream App on iPad... WHAT? I can use the app for control but have to pay to stream to the iPad? Where did I miss that little pearl of information? App Store doesn’t say anything about it.. All other aspects of PLEX... 5 Stars Are we in a pi$$ing contest with Apple or what? Explain it and show me where I missed the IOS part and I’ll upgrade the rating...
  • iOS version of cast listed alphabetical order by first name rather than by top billing.

    By JayTMoney1
    iOS version of the app lists the cast in alphabetical order by first name rather than by top billing. Other than that small gripe, this is the best solution for taking your media on the go.
  • Amazing!!

    By Witchking86
    Honesty Plex is the best media app there is. Every purchase I make revolves around Plex. I bought an iPad again just so I can use it on a larger format than just my phone. Apple needs to thank them for driving business they're way. Thank you so much Plex developers for making such a great media experience!
  • Unable to download

    By jen3370
    This is the most confusing app I’ve ever had . I paid for a subscription and haven’t been able to use it yet! It’s way too hard to get movies onto my account - I’ve called and no one could help me . I can’t even seem to get a refund . Not worth the trouble .
  • None of the paid features work

    By Anijake
    If you pay for a Plex Pass you will be disappointed to find most of the features you are paying for do not work. Sync is a joke, LiveTV and DVD are hit and miss at best. Even the free stuff is almost useless, like Podcasts, that don’t sync correctly and often do not keep your current position. The worst part is this company does not care and just want your money. Read the forums before giving them your money.
  • version 5 changes are bad

    By nycdude88
    was using this app for a long time and it was fantastic until some wizard decided to make this into netflix. long story short the new version does not allow you to group your stuff by library instead everything is sorted into common groups such as movies and shows with no way to change it. what this means is that if you had stuff sorted by library it will be a mess as everything will essentially be sorted into 3 groups - movie, shows, and other. horrible new redesign akin to skype ruining theirs a year ago i wish there was a way to go back but for now plex on ios is unusable.
