    The best app for media sharing I was able to find.
  • by Daniel 11/15/2014
    Design is absolutely beautiful. Seeing constant updates to the app is always a good thing. AWESOME APP.
  • by Doug 11/14/2014
    Plex delivers yet another amazing client! This is by far the best app out there to give me access to my entire music collection, not to mention my videos and photos too. Now that it has syncing, this is far better than the Xbox Music app. No comparison when it comes to accessing your music library, let alone your friend's library too.

    Used to work great, but now it is not playing any of my video files. Since the last update I cannot watch anything. It constantly fails to play. I hope there is a fix coming soon.

    Awesome! Buy on Windows phone and use on Windows devices too! Thanks for supporting the entire Microsoft ecosystem, across Xbox One, WP and Surface/ARM. Outstanding work on all app versions; having a Pass is well worth it.

    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
