  • Best Media Player App

  • LOVE IT!!!

    Where have you been my whole life?? Been using Plex for a little over a month now with zero complaints. Plex has simplified our digital media and encouraged me to finally dive in and organize all of our digital pictures even further. Next step is to scan a few decades of film!!! Update 10/19/2018: Not sure what’s going on but the newest version of Plex for iOS makes “Shows” unavailable but other media is ok. Ok on all other clients as well. Need this fixed ASAP!
  • Despite glitches, still the best there is UPDATE

    By H3yd
    I'm a lifetime PlexPass member; I use Plex's various incarnations across tons of devices. Yes, every now and again something goes awry, but to paraphrase Louis CK, "You try building it and making it perfect all the time!" It works 99.9% of the time for 99.9% of everything. Having worked in software development, I can understand how impossible it is to foresee every possible iteration and challenge, but Plex is incredibly stable and reliable. UPDATE: The app is basically broken on iOS 12/iPhone X. Anytime I’m in portrait mode, the close/minimize controls are not accessible, which makes it impossible to send content via Chromecast. Even when in landscape mode, the controls seem barely functional. This has been the case ever since I upgraded to iOS 12, and is extremely frustrating.
  • Great service, awful UI

    By Jason_to82
    This used to be a 5 star app. I love the service. I have Plex Pass to support the developers. But oh my god the UI used to be so simple and clean and a few months ago the update turned it into a god forsaken mess. It’s the same across all of my devices. Just go back to the old UI please.
  • App free when you get Plex pass - WORTH IT! Best media server and app to pull plug

    By NCJaZz
    I purchased the lifetime Plex Pass. The best a/v decision I’ve made. I wish the sync process was easier for offline listening and watching FOR MY KIDS but for me it allows for granular control of kbps rate per song. Interface for me as a technologist is very much self driving and in-play. I think i paid around a bill for the lifetime Plex pass a few years ago and it’s more than paid for itself. The app is free for Plex pass subscribers (monthly yearly or lifetime pass) but even for those who don’t do pass the cost of you have access to a Plex media server with a decent sized media dB is worth the cost to get all the extras. We added a couple of homerun boxes and killed cable which is saving us almost a bill / 100 Per month alone so Plex has been incredible for us at home and at the office and when on the road.
  • Plex is the standard

    By Hmethtr36
    Love my Plex for all my media needs! It’s so seemless between everything I want to play. It just works!
  • not free

    By looking for a few honest apps
    they don’t tell you to pay until AFTER you’ve set up library very deceitful
  • Used to be great

    By 🔥sauce
    Used to be much better before the last major update. Doesn't connect to my server easily anymore.
  • Can’t live without it

    By BigPlexHead
    Plex is by far the best app for running your digital media. If you are OCD like I am and like to have all of your info organized to your liking there is no better app as it lets you access and change the metadata of your files. 10/10
