  • No longer works

    By crispee
    App has gotten worse and worse. Now I have no idea how to connect to my library. Doesn’t even show up.
  • Good app but server doesn’t work sometimes

    By Jake j85602
    Things were great for a while and somehow an update screwed it all up for me. A basic thing got dropped from its features. Screen not falling asleep on you while playing in the app would be great. I hate having to turn off the feature in my phone settings only to remember to turn it back on when I’m done watching it. It’s about to burn a hole in my pocket or start on fire if I forget. A bit of an exaggeration but it’s frustrating that I never had to screw with things until a recent update. iOS 11.4 on iPhone 8 Plus. 2 stars UPDATE: Either app update or IOS 11.4.1 fixed the issue with screen locking during playback. Now if I could keep my server on so my paid subscription could work while outside of my home.
  • It was all good initially

    By Mia Bia
    I initially really enjoyed my Plex app and told everyone I could about it. I’ve been extremely disappointed the last few months as I have not been able to watch a TV show or movie fully without it slowing down or not working properly. I have checked all of and adjusted my settings as well as restarted my devices and router yet the problem continues. I am very disappointed as of late with this app especially after reading the updates that have been made yet the same problems are still occurring. Then to top it all off as I attempt to contact them through support the forum to fill out and submit button disappear from the support option when chosen. So in order to submit my complaint I had to do so under another menu option.
  • New layout is bad

    By Karen 3jmom
    New layout is very bad, like to old layout where your each Plex sever file type are group together, new layout is set by movie tv instead by each server... please revert
  • Life time baby!

    By Plex-man
    Plex is great. I do wish the features were more compatible with other devices, but that just me being impatient. 5/5😄
  • scam

    By Cute 22
    It doesn’t work I wasted 5$ this doesn’t work
  • Beware! A wonderful thing gone VERY BAD!!!!!!

    By Hoods robin
    We have had PLEX for a long time and the recents updates screwed up EVERYTHING about it that was AMAZING!!!!!! My daughter is a super tech and spent a great deal of time loading it up with great content. She and I HATE the “upgrade”ed version! I’m writing this so nobody will spend their hard earned money and get something that LOOKS like Amazon or Netflix, but doesn’t work like AMAZON or Netflix! I will never understand why companies that have produced a good product always have to make changes that force people to deal with THEIR crazy concepts, which they call “updates”, but they end up being DOWNGRADES!!!!! If anybody reading this has made the mistake of UPGRADING to WINDOWS 10, then you’ll know exactly what I mean!!! The programmers think they have to keep making changes in order to safe guard their jobs, but the upgrades, 99% of the time, just drive people CRAZY!!!!! Run don’t walk away from this program.
  • $5 to unlock a broken app

    By masterchief9567
    Why is it that if I skip songs all of a sudden I get no audio unless I pause the song and play it again? Also if I pick a song from my library while it is in the tracks view why does it start playing the song as if I started it from the album? This app is just as broken on iPhone as it is on android. I paid twice for this trash.
  • Latest update is a total mess

    By Jdsteven
    The latest update is a really big leap backward in usability and I absolutely hate using it now.
  • Make your own Netflix

    By Gradinkoff
    If you have a ton of digital video files then plex is great for organizing and watching them.
