  • Has never worked on iPhone, but works well on everything else

    Just what the title says; works well on local lan on iPad, tv and computer. But when trying to stream using an iPhone on local lan, the app can never find my Plex server (Update-it's gotten much better). With the new updates, now when I play a movie on my iphone it constantly buffers movies burned at HD. Cant play these at any conversion except 1.5 which looks really bad. Cant watch them at 1080, so pretty bad still. Certainly STILL not worth putting out $ for, but it's ok.... just not 5 stars good. Considering other options for streaming now, maybe KODI.

    Although I wish I could sync my data from my server to my iPhone with the single $5 charge, I'd say some day soon the plex pass will be worth it, considering having Linux as my main OS is problematic with getting movies/music onto my iPhone. It's great being able to stream content locally with this app otherwise and the $5 is worth it

    Been using Plex for several years, back when it had to be hacked onto the Apple TV. It is the biggity biggity BEST. Will always support the developers, they are dedicated and keep making this app the best-in-class. Get a Plex Pass lifetime subscription if you can, it just keeps getting better.
