3/6/2014I think its a total ripoff to keep spending $5 for this app on every single device, (XBox One $5, Android $5, Windows 8.1 $5, Windows Phone another $5) PLUS the Plex Pass subscription. Its not so good that it should cost this much, the apps should be included with the subscription. Also, the developers need to figure out how not to show duplicates of everything, due to two servers appearing for LAN and WAN networks. I've invested too much money to have two of each folder in my Library, two of everything On Deck. Fix it, please.
3/3/2014Why did I wait so long to install this? Its soooo awesome
3/2/2014Fantastic app! Ive only had a force close when streaming "Maximum" on local WiFi. Only other issue I have is the remote function. I use Plex Home Theater and there is no remote to navigate the on screen display. I can select media from my phone to play and control while playing. There is no way, that I have found. to browse the larger screen with the home theater app and discuss with others who may be present in the room. If the option is available I haven't found it, and simple user guide would be very nice to have. I am currently using the Lumia Icon. Previously on my HTC 8x the app had the navigation remote and on this new Nokia I could not download that same app and had to repurchase this different version, that is all around better, but missing the navigation controls.
2/28/2014Looks great, but extremely limited without sync. Which the developers aren't interested in adding to the Windows apps because the market share is too small. Regret giving these guys my money just to fund their iOS and Android development.
2/26/2014Where is the search feature in Windows Phone. Doesn't make sense
2/26/2014If they add SkyDrive sync and it will be perfect
2/25/2014Outstanding app and server. Very easy to configure, quality is great over LTE and Wifi. Listening to my own high quality music on the drive to work beats out Pandora, having the whole music library available instead of syncing a subset to my phone is great. Some slight bugginess is there but the release today has already fixed some things.
2/25/2014One of the best services and apps I've ever used. Well done in all levels.
2/25/2014I purchased Plex app for $4.99 on 4/4/2013. I find out today that it is "no longer published" and I am forced today to re-purchase the app for the same price. Am I going to have to do this every year? I'm more than happy to support development of apps like these but I shouldn't have to re-pay for an app I already own.
2/22/2014I've been using plex for years. Its become far more feature rich but also far less reliable. This app crashes if I try to play anything (local or remote and direct play on or off) however my buddy with the same phone can play videos from my library. Some videos work on the roku, but not iOS, WP8, or the Win 8 app. All of my videos play in VLC. I know this review should just be for the app but the server application is a requirement and the plex system simply doesn't work very well anymore.
