Problems with resuming


App has been working really well till the most recent update, issue is when your phone goes to sleep for a while and comes back the app doesn’t remote connect to your desktop player. Forcing me to refresh my desktop Plex then it will only find it again

Family Sharing?


Great app...but I bought this in-app purchase thinking I could share it among family devices (share the ability to playback, not share the app).
Turns out you can't. Family sharing only applies to app purchases, not in-app purchases.
So to my mind (or what I'd like to do) family sharing isn't supported.
Don't make the same mistake I'll need a plex pass or buy the in-app purchase for each device.

11.3 issues


Needs fix for IOS 11.3, not working since upgrade. Excellent application works like a charm, however developers should look into keeping up with phone OS updates.
