    Gravitars not loading and connection to my library keeps dropping out.

    Great idea...but having to uninstall and reinstall the app from my windows 8.1 phone sucks. Without warning the icon goes blank and the program hangs while loading. An uninstall and reinstall fixes it but very poor QA.

    Works flawlessly! Streamed 6 hours of video to my phone during a long trip with only 1 hiccup, likely due to my data provider, not Plex. Simply went back to the home page and clicked resume and it picked up where I left off. We need more well-written apps like this on the WP platform!

    Finally on par with other OSs

    Plex is king. It is all you need for your media streaming.

    Make use of the pin feature. Pin filtered lists... Ex G and PG rated lists of movies. Pin individual movies. This is fundamental to Windows and Windows phone!!

    I love this app and the plex suite of apps. I just wish, for my photo library, there was a way to download an image locally to my phone! Thanks!!
