  • It is better than Netflix!!!!

    By Javierfireman
    I can see my favorite movies and shows anywhere.
  • Great App

    By Clsmith2013
    Great app, but needs to add a watch party feature. This would allow two or three parties to watch the same movies at the same time sub synchronized. When you can't watch in the same room. Great app!!!!
  • Change to privacy policy. Now it's SPYWARE!!

    Google "plex has a new privacy policy" on Reddit. User data collection is now mandatory.
  • Camera upload UPDATED

    By xjames212x
    Updated 8-19 - camera upload in the background broken again. Please fix and add to regression testing. Updated 5-30 - gotta give credit where credit is due - THEY ACTUALLY FIXED CAMERA UPLOAD! Great work, I actually cannot believe it! I can now kick off a sync and "walk" away!
  • Worth every penny!

  • Netflix only wishes it was this good

    Plex is by far the most useful program on my computer (or phone). I've been with them from the beginning, and their routine updates never disappoint. I actually get excited when I see a Plex update email in my inbox. Thankfully I got the lifetime subscription when it was only $75, and I've been streaming my 15tb home collection ever since. Thanks Plex, you guys have saved me countless hours of frustration with home media management, and thousands of dollars on Netflix and other streaming services who somehow never have what I want when I want it. 👍👍
  • Awesome app

    Recent updates have made Plex even better.
  • Plex is awesome, the 30% of the time it doesn't crash...

    Title says it all. Plex is a great product. App design and layout is sufficient to easily access content. But GAH!!! It always crashes, often right when I try to sign in to my accounts. Plex clients work fine on innumerable other devices I own, but iOS app has been flaky as all get-up.
