    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.

    I like the addition of the transparent tile. However, I would much rather the classic opaque tile. Please add an option to switch between transparent and opaque tiles. Thanks!

    Unlike client on android and windows8, delete media function is missing on WP version. I have to open the browser if I need to delete some watched media. Hope this function can be added to WP version. Seems no technical issue there

    After this update .. None English tv show or movies names is not showing.. Please fix it .. Maybe because of the new listing design in this update only for English letters. So other languages like Japanese,Arabic,Chinese..etc is not showing .. Even in show all list ,nothing there
