Customer Reviews

Ugh, it's Windows 8,1, but a little better now...

Well, the developers have tried to respond to criticisms with this patch. They've added back list views and a few other niceties, and I have to give them credit for reacting fairly quickly. Unfortunately, I still like the older interface better. What's there now is choice between a too busy gallery view or a too stark list view. The older interface had a nice hybrid between the two that actually provide a description along with the cover art. Movie descriptions are still deeply buried, and I can't even find the series description for TV shows any more. At least I haven't had any stability issues. Hopefully, the developers will continue to tweak the interface to make it better. Until then, I'm going to hold off updating my other devices.

Original review: "Ugh, it's Windows 8..."

I waited for a while before writing a review to see if I could get used to the new interface, but I can't. They stripped out most of the text and separating space and replaced it with a sea of cover art. While it's great eye candy, it's lousy if you have a large collection because everything just blurs together. Descriptions are now buried, and it seems to take more effort to get to anything than it did before. If they'd put in a way to toggle the interface between gallery view and some type of list view, it would be more usable.

Great design and functionality

Once again, the Plex team has done a great job fixing some bugs. They go out on a limb and push the limits, sometimes creating an experience that ends up being subpar. That said, they always fix up what may be lacking and leave me a happy customer.
I've been using plex for years and years now, since it was in its early beta phase. I have a couple of media servers running plex that work great. Streaming to the phone is flawless and works great. I recommend this app to anyone and is even better for those that are experienced with tech stuff.

From great to infuriating

To the devs: Don't take away features not make things harder to find when updating.

To the user: I use to love this app, I'm a lifetime supporter. I literally fall asleep watching tv with it every night, so when I say that this update has made me consider moving my 6tb collection to another setup know that I don't take that lightly.

This new app, while sparkly, has lost functionality. It's constantly losing my synced data, which takes all day to convert and sync. They took away being able to re-order your synced items. Getting to your tv shows selection instead of their 'discovery' tab now takes twice as many clicking around. Switching between offline and online mode use to be seamless, now you have to go into the settings and manually switch every time. I have other gripes too but everything's been made more complicated with less options. Why?! Don't pull a windows vista on us plex, upgrading for the sake of looks while killing functionality.

Please fix this current version or let us revert.
