    Great app. Hopefully they will bring to WP app all iOS app functionalities. Sync is a good start.

    So I pay for the app, and now forced to pay for the same app on the same phone for the newer version because they republish? Got to love plex. Buggy in resuming play, crashes my plex media server

  • by Steve 4/20/2014
    Excellent app, works as a truly premium media streaming and control service effortlessly. Could do with the ability to search and for better remote control features, but otherwise perfect.

    Improving all the time! Need feature parity with Android and iOS apps though.

    One of the best apps out there, and with the frequent updates it's constantly evolving. Can't wait for Xbox one update.
