    Sync isn't working. Sits at 0%. If I press sync, it says preparing and converting but still 0%. Otherwise it's awesome, please fix.

    By far the best media server!!! I recommend it to everyone I know. Just make sure you have your files properly named 😉

    Why does the new version need access to my contacts. They are being sneaky here why??

    Love plex, but this app will randomly force close in the middle of a movie without saving my spot; if I try and go back to that spot the sound will not match up with the frames. Love the look, wish the functionality was that good.

    Great app, sadly it crashes a lot.
  • by Eric 10/13/2014
    Technically works good. The UI is terrible. I have all my movies arranged into folders by category. Tv shows into folders under Tv, each show has a name.... But on the phone it's all jumbled together... Zero organization. I only care about viewing my movies/tv by folders as I've created. All that other stuff is useless fluff. The important stuff is not front and center, just another app with priorities misplaced. Not useful to me, there are better DLNA apps. Hate that I had to spend $5 just to see that the UI is horrid. Where is the folder structure of my media? Also, many show file names are "S03-E23 - Name of show". Stupid UI cuts most of it off so you have NO idea what you are watching. Yuck, UI is impossible and not thought out.

    Disappointed, I bought plex to view my media remotely, if I only wanted to view my network media locally I would have happily stuck with MoliPlayer or Smart player, neither of which need any additional pc software or setup, and have DLNA (which I not working on Plex) The server logged in fine but the app has no way to add new server as the ios and android versions do. Plus, why no folder view or search? At $5 this could be considered a premium app, but aside from the amazing poster art matching there is little premium about it.

    I think this is a great app and is a work in progress. Yes, sometimes it's frustrating, but they have always been upfront about their goals and objectives. The price is fair, just needs a little more thought about charging the same user on multiple devices. Their growth is amazing and community is great!

    Please fix audio play back on videos its like 4 seconds behind.

    Works great, but no Chromecast support. However, I understand that that may not be the fault of Plex as Google is being a big baby and not allowing its stuff on Microsoft devices.
