    Awesome!!!! Application. I have three phone OS's, iOS and Android, but works/looks the best on a Windows Phone 8

    Nice app and service. Works well on my Win8.1 PC, Nokia Icon, and my Samsung TV. Great job!

    Fabulous! I have over 1,300 movies and 4,000 songs on my server. Thanks to Plex on my NL920 and Surface RT I have them with me wherever I go. Plex is amazing. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the global search, but why not implement the search function while browsing my library as well?

    Cool but can't play all songs or queue or play by artist from phone

    4/5. Plex Sync made me SO happy, i bought a PlexPass! Excellent for video! Streaming & offline sync works great to play an album, but would love to be able to shuffle all songs!

    Great app, but how can I install it on my windows 8.1 PC? as it's compatible with both but I can't see it on my PC :( I only see the paid app (not in Nokia Collection)
