iOS App Reviews

  • Best Media Streaming app

    By Kraziebone
    The iOS app works very well and the visual presentation of the app is nice and refined. I've used a lot of apps in the past to stream my media content and Plex is by far the best platform out there to stream content from a personal server to another device. Plex's bread and butter is media content served over a server/client connection where the user owns the media server. If you're using it for something drastically different, you're experience may vary.
  • Airplay is funky.

    Was working great until iOS 11. Now AirPlay to my 3rd gen Apple TV is not working. Please fix ASAP

  • A Maze

    If you can figure out how to install this thing more power to you. My rule of thumb is that if it isn’t intuitive and capable of being understood with 5 minutes, then it isn’t worth my time or having. In other words, this isn’t worth my time.
  • Best app

    Best app ever love it
  • The cord-cutter's dream

    By cnicole1919
    So easy and seamless. Great UI. I liked it so much I bought the PlexPass. I love the option to play trailers and the soundtrack while browsing. I also love the channels. I can watch just about anything on network and cable using Plex, too.
  • Please... please....please

    By bluiflip
    Allow for direct playback of HEVC formatted .mp4 files on iOS/TvOS so they don’t need to be transcoded. Thanx!
  • Best Media Server out there!

    By Dj.Eritch
    If you have content on a computer, Plex server is the way to go. iOS Plex app is great way to stream from the Plex server which can be hosted on various platforms and streamed outside your network. Don’t listen to the idiots that can’t set it up right, it’s extremely easy to setup. Point to your library, scan it, share it and stream! Oh, and the idea someone mentioned of “mirroring” your server content to the iPhone in case it’s down... I have way more than the iPhone storage can handle. However there is a way to sync an offline copy to iOS or Android which is great for Airplane mode on long trips. Sync a whole season of Favorite content!
