    After working with Plex staff, they fixed things and the app is working fine. Great staff and great app.

    Had this during the free promotion, now the latest update 4/7/2015 they want me to purchase in app to keep the same features. No thanks. Edit: I'm able to stream now without problems and not having to purchase anything. Thanks Plex!

    Quick and easy to get going. I've setup an old laptop as a server and can now access my content from my phone anytime I want.

    Great software. Thanks for fixing the install issue.

    I had a fully working version of this app for more than a year. Now after the last update I'm being asked to pay $5 to repurchase the features they just removed! I love Plex but this is very unfair.
