    New update makes this app perfect 👌
  • by Eric 2/25/2015
    This app deserves praise. No compromise media playing abilities, especially tied with a plex pass to allow features like syncing locally.

    The recent update isn't working for the newest update. Stops at 7mb then says attention required.
