Customer Reviews

Good. But not always.

Plex is very good and I rarely have a problem with it. Syncing movies and tv while you sleep and watching them whilst you are out and about is what it is all about. The UI and flow has improved, and the devs have made it a bit slicker to get to the thing you want. There are a lot of clicks sometimes, that's my only real grumble.

A few inconsistencies between the app UI and the pc/Mac version and app - the filter options aren't in the same order as those in Plex home theatre for example. Also,I'd like the search option to be there the moment I open the app, so I can go to the show/movie pronto!

I don't agree with the one-star reviews because for me it "just works"...and that's all I can ask. Thanks for your hard work Plex Team; unless you royally screw this up I'll continue to be a PlexPass subscriber for a long time.

Great app

Get the media server, get all the apps, grab yourself a Plex Pass, and you'll be happy!

EDIT: It gets snappier with every update!

Can't clear storage

Have to keep deleting app to free up space.

It's fantastic as long as you don't want to sync your content to your device and take it with you.

Loads of complaints on the forum, they don't seem to listen or care at Plex as there is never any support input.

Shame, been a paying customer for a few years and now about to go elsewhere.
