Update: What happened to Plex??

This is my go-to app for streaming video. Ever since the last major update, it's very difficult to navigate and things aren't where I want them. The beauty of Plex is that it's fully customizable, and this app strays so far from that concept. Please, whomever is listening, let me customize the app or change it back to the way it was.

Update: The original app was very easy to navigate and was "first time user friendly," meaning that I could find things with ease from the moment I opened it. After doing extensive research online and through forums, I learned quite a few things the new version of the app could do and how it is customizable. I'm giving the app five stars because of the beauty and functionality of it all, but if I could give it four and a half stars, I would, because it's not "first time user friendly."

One more thing: on top of the earlier stated issues, one thing I wish they would add would be easier access to playlists from the home screen instead of having to go into each individual library entry to find them. Do this and it'll be a damned near perfect experience.

Update is lacking...again

I usually don't leave feedback regarding updates, but I must in this case...
I'm a big fan of Plex, and mainly use it on Roku and IPad. I am extremely disappointed that the watch later feature was discontinued recently AGAIN which I used everyday! It was helpful to browse tv plugins on the iPad and add episodes to watch then watch later on the roku....since the roku has NEVER had this feature since Plex was born. Please bring back the watch later feature asap, and please add this feature to Roku too! Also, I am happy with the new podcasts feature but would love a listen later feature for that too! I do not like the webisodes feature and don’t care to see it but there is no way to remove it? Still need tweaking with customization options. Plex is fantastic overall, but I'm giving 3 stars this time, because an update should not keep subtracting from the user enjoyment. Common sense says make things more user customizable, so people can choose what they want to keep and get rid of what they don’t want to see....and with as few clicks as possible too! Please fix what is lacking now, but once was there to enjoy.....for the 2nd time!!!

Works and works well

Best solution to cataloging and playing media across many platforms there is. With a premium subscription and PlexCloud, one can watch videos from just about anywhere you can get a decent connection. While the interface does take some time to get used to, it functions well and actually manages watching or listening for you in a very helpful way, including remembering what you have seen or heard, and continuing in the right places when you come back to something in progress.

And the Plex people are quick to address bugs and issues, and listen to suggestions for improvements. Just finished a trip to Italy and Germany, and had access to my media the whole time. In addition, Plex’s database of images, sounds, titles, and cover art make the interface beautiful and helpful.

The lifetime PLEX subscription was the best decision for me. And no, I do not work for the company, and they did not pay me to say this. Just very pleases with how well this software works.
