Customer Reviews

Great app, but new UI seems needlessly complicated

I've been using Plex on iPhone, Windows, Mac, and Samsung TV for some time now. Being able to view my media regardless of my location, with transcoding adjusted to match my available bandwidth, and down sampling even 1080p content so it plays flawlessly on my iPhone makes this a killer app for me.

These days, PLEX (and increasingly my iPhone) is the only way I watch TV anymore.

This latest UI revamp is very nice, but it has made navigating my media needlessly complicated. Discover vs Browse behaves strangely and unintuitively. Syncing causes an almost endless stream of awful distracting pop-ups in the top edge of the display; and if you're watching something in rotated mode it keeps popping the screen back to unrotated! Annoying!

I have recently been traveling and wanted to avail myself of syncing. It sort of seems to work but I can't tell what's really synced, nor do I thinking seeing accurate status of various synchronized shows. It's a bit of a mess really.

I still love you PLEX, but this new UI needs some real UX attention.

Small steps in the right direction

The new version fixes the server picker, which used to be hidden and impossible to operate easily. It's a step in the right direction for the horrific UX in the new update. However, the biggest problem remains: when you "close" an video, it keeps playing in the background (really?), and you have to swipe a tiny bar on the bottom downward (impossible to do) in order to stop it from continuing. This makes no sense as "backgrounding" the video doesn't yield any benefits, while making the act of closing out the video 5x harder than it needs to be. Please keep fixing and optimizing the new UI, Plex may earn a 5 star yet.

The best home media option

In this format it's hard to give a comprehensive review on all the options in Plex. As a video manager which streams locally to apple devices I'd say that it's pretty good, though it's still a bit complicated to set up and use. Trying to stream outside of my network has been problematic, probably because I use a windows server.
As a music and photo server and player it's fine but no where near feature comparity with almost any other service.
I really wish that they'd break this app and service into various parts.
