Keeps asking to activate for a price
Says it's free but then it says it won't work without Activating it for a price or you can use it for a free trial but you don't get all the features of it. I will try and use it to give it a chance see if it works without Activation I read reviews online it says it's free until you download it we will see. I'll give it a month my review might change who knows.
Fantastic app, works really well
Plex works really well on my iPhone, it makes streaming music around the home to multiple places really easy and streaming my media out and about really easy as well.
Not as easy to use as it could be!
Easy to use if you a tech minded, now trying to show my wife how it works it not that easy, could do with a help guide written by someone with very little tech knowledge
