    This is a great app, but on my 1520, it is regularly getting corrupt or something. The icon shows as blank and it gets stuck on "loading". To get it working again, I have to uninstall and reinstall. It has happened about 6 times in the last 6-8 weeks. How do I report this to developers?

    Works great! Make sure you have configured it properly before complaining.

    Awesome. Keeps getting better with every release as well. With every penny.

    This is the best service... App crashes once or twice but the awesomeness of the whole idea trumps that... Everyone needs this now!

    Horrible! This app doesnt work on my phone (L925). Everytime I play a video it fast forwards about 15 seconds and the audio and video end up out of sync for the entire video. It makes this app that I spent $5 on totally useless. FIX IT!!!!!!!

    The phone version needs work. I try to use it on my commute. When I play music it will play fine with no issues. However when I try to go back into the App and change artists the app looses the connection with the plex server and wont reconnect without me having to reboot my phone.

    The app was working great till the recent update. Now it keeps crashing every 10-15 minutes. Please fix this asap.

    Very good client for Plex, what is missing though is arrow keys so you can navigate when needed/wanted.

    Good update, but still no Chromecast support, no background audio.
