Plex: Movies, TV, Music & More app reviews

  • Crashes Several Times a Day 2/5

    By Spunkmeyer
    I have to restart the app several times a day because of crashes. This usually happens when deleting recordings or changing from one hub to another. Usually the first restart just results in the app being stuck on a grey screen. Often I have to kill it several times before it will finally proceed beyond the grey screen. Very disappointing since I just purchased the lifetime subscription.
  • It’s perfect 5/5

    By Dr.JGW
    There’s not a single problem I can find with this app. Plex is amazing from every angle that I use it for. (The live TV stuff is an albatross...)
  • No more photo sync :( 4/5

    By Blzrdphoto
    I absolutely love this app. I even bought a Plex pass lifetime subscription to take full advantage of it. Sadly shortly after I bought the Plex pass and an extra 12 TB hard drive for this purpose I found out that one feature I was really looking forward to now that google photos isn’t going to be free anymore was the mobile photo sync. So much for Plex being my google photos replacement. I now have to look for something else to complete that task for me.
  • Sleep timer 3/5

    By man legalization
    The app is amazing for some reason I can’t seem to find the sleep timer lately wish it was still there

    By ANONYMOUS170000000
    This app is SO AWSOME! I can now stream any movie for my family without having to pay for it! Kudos to the developers!👍
  • don’t give up 5/5

    By ro6ot
    folks- if you “pay once” to ‘unlock’ second number sixty-one, then your iPad, or different iPhone a year later, asks you to pay again... just scroll down, there *is* a “restore purchase” button! (and it works!! 8-)
  • I love my Plex more than my daughter 5/5

  • Cannot play a Video on a Photo library on IOS or TVOS 1/5

    By Litefmfan
    For the last couple of releases it has been impossible to play a video on a photo album on iOS or TVOS. When I try to play a video a ger the message: “Couldn’t retrieve the queue for this item. Please try again” This issue however doesn’t happen on Mac Os or android devices. On these types of devices the videos on Photo Libraries run smoothly.. please fix
  • Auto-PiP broken on iPad 3/5

    By Wyldoxz
    Not sure which update is the culprit, but jumping Home from inside Plex now just minimises the app and pauses playback when previously it would automatically throw the mini player onto the Home screen. Running iPadOS 14.4.2.The feature is still working on iOS 14.4.2. The app is up-to-date on both devices. Plex is the best solution for maintaining home media servers, but the lack of support is really frustrating. When I’ve tried to use the forums, my bug reports and issues have gone unresolved, which is especially disappointing since I’ve paid for PlexPass. I’m hoping reporting this bug in a review will result in a swifter solution.
  • Paid for the full version but still won't let me use it 1/5

    By JamesMMorgan
    I paid $4.99 for the ios version of plex but when I try to watch a movie on my iPad it still says "playback limit" and tries to charge me again.
  • Playlist rotation no longer works 1/5

    By Steverdezines
    Up until a few days ago, when I’d open a playlist selection upon it ending it would go to the next song, movie. In other words #2 would play following #1. That no longer works on any of my devices except for firestick and AppleTV. I’ve tried every browswer, and except for firefox on my macbook, none of them offer that feature any longer. I am not a happy camper.

  • Difficulty entering Profile PIN 2/5

    By ArataTakú
    Apple TV version needs to support standard tvOS text/number input for profile PIN (used for parental controls). This way you can use your iPhone or Siri to enter the password. The current design (number picker) allows my kids to see me choose the numbers, and therefore learn the PIN to access adult content.
  • I’m just lucky to have it. 5/5

    By Dash the greatest
    Plex is easy to go on and best for watching movies and has lots of room to keep stuff in it very interesting and I love interesting things so plex is my favorite thing to go on.
  • Works great! 5/5

  • Library not loading/accessible 4/5

    By pppppthhbbb

Have to switch to another app to stop Plex playback, then go back to Plex app. Please fix, and thanks. 5/9/20 - FIXED! Thanks! Old issue: Problem switching subtitles on and off. Please fix, and thanks for all you do. 5/12/20 - FIXED! Thanks! Old issue: Can no longer access contents of folders. Please fix.
  • Removing camera uploads 1/5

    By TippyTipster
    After months of this feature being broken, Plex apparently has decided to say “forget it” and remove the #1 reason to get a plex pass, and the main reason I have the app installed on my phone. Plex functioned as a great way to get my personal photos onto my own personal cloud server. But I guess they just decided to get lazy and ditch the feature all together. Can’t recommend plex pass to anyone anymore.
  • Basically spyware — has third party identifier tracking 1/5

    By Isaac Gray
    I pay for Plex pass and yet the app has embedded third party tracking. The devs are unethical and greedy for having third party tracking based on identifiers.
  • Plex is amazing!!!! We use Plex every day 5/5

    By Mr.Tank
    Love Plex
  • Free movies!! 5/5

    By RedshiftAlex
    I love this app, I have it on my phone and my tv, and I love it because I can watch all movies for free!!! And I don’t have to pay anything!!!
  • The “un-carrier” of Streaming Services 5/5

    By Nike914
    Lifetime Purchase - No further Subscription. Upload your own media - Access it anywhere. Organize movies, shows, music, pictures... etc. Easy UI, plus all the extras. It makes me forget I was ever subscribed to Netflix or Hulu. Probably my favorite, yet subtle, feature ( and quite possibly an unintentional feature) is when I lock my phone and wake the screen, I simply press the play button on the Lock Screen and I can resume audio progress on my tv shows. Would prefer to just have a full-on “continue in the background” feature - but this is sufficient enough. Love having my screen off and listen to TV shows, especially those I have watched many times over. Please never get rid of the Lifetime Purchase option (or raise the price on it - currently $120). Probably one of the most attractive aspects of Plex - you can choose not to continue with a subscription plan and I’m sure it will entice more users.
  • Great option, difficulty with deleting individual shows 4/5

    By Midwife mom
    Loving using this to catch up on old shows. It’s a great option! I wish I could erase shows after I watch them. So far it erases the whole series.
  • I kinda like the live TV guide layout but can you fix this? 2/5

    I kinda like the live TV guide layout but can you fix this? When I scroll and use the live TV guide it lags horribly and it hurts my eves because it keeps shifting and lagging everywhere. And the live TV guide looks kinda sloppy and there are so much great channels but it’s so sloppy like if you touch it it will move from side to side. Can you make the layout kinda like Pluto tv? And the guide scrolls from side to side and lags as it’s doing it too. Can you fix this annoying glitch?
  • Going down hill 2/5

    By dcbd127
    It once was a pretty decent app. But with recent changes, the navigation and UI is horrible.
  • Recommend it 5/5

    By Joedejong.mister horror?
    Last year when I downloaded the app I signed up for my free account had no problems. So far so good love the movies and shows I also listen to podcasts? And I went into the music section I couldn’t find my favorite genre of music that I love I’m a fan of metal music from heavy-metal to dust metal turn true Norwegian black metals I enjoy the genre maybe add more genres of music. But there is one problem when I go to a cast to my living room TV or my Apple TV in my basement I can’t find airplay or a Chromecast please create another update featuring AirPlay in Chromecast. That would be pretty nice to also send me notifications about new releases and recommended movies and TV shows also please add a metal section to the music section because I love DEATH Maddow music that’s my favorite type of genre. So I have to say you guys are awesome Plex is my new home for movies and TV music and podcasts and web shows keep updating keep adding more channels
  • Most of the features work 2/5

    By theeskimo7
    Playback of media files on my devices, casting to my chromecast are working. I did a 1 month Plex pass trial to test out the phone photo backup feature and to my dismay this feature was not functioning. Would adjust this rating up to a 4-5 star if this paid premium feature was actually working.
  • One minute? Really? 1/5

    By Soccerkiller33
    You mean to tell me that on any other platform I can watch anything I want for free... but not on my phone? Come on now.
  • Extremely disappointed in Plex! 1/5

    By Puterdood
    I really wanted Plex to work. Sadly, that is not be the case. One thing is it will not find all of my media, even when giving it the exact file path. The files are all formatted the same and will play using other apps. Another thing is the app on Apple TV crashes just by moving between shows/movies. I deleted it and reinstalled several times. There appears to a very specific procedure of navigation to avoid crashing. I am not willing to jump through such hoops. And finally, worst of all, it is extremely easy to to totally delete entire libraries of shows and movies when you simply want to remove them from Plex. There is no warning at all. Thank God I have backups!!! I would suggest just sticking with the default Apple TV app for syncing with iTunes. It works. It is simple. It’s not perfect, but not nearly as dangerous as Plex. Sorry, Plex. You can do better than this! If you are allegedly the best, then I hate to see what second best is. Fix the problems and I might give you another try. For now, I prefer to stay with simple and safe!
  • Plex pass 5/5

    By Monkeylamp
    I’ve been a plex pass member for years, I love everything about it! So easy to watch my shows when I’m out of town or visiting family. The only thing that would make it better is if it came with a comic book reader.
  • Awesome 5/5

  • Best “MyFlix” App With Room For Improvement 4/5

    By RTM135
    Longtime PlexPass owner. Plex is the best “MyFlix” app out there with room for improvement. Their client app is ubiquitous and easy to use. And their server app is easy enough for non-techies to install and configure. Areas needing improvement are library support and data sources. Since we live in a digital world, adding other sources like books, comics, audiobooks, and music videos would be welcome. Also, it would improve the service if their data sources were brought in-house. (Anyone who has dealt with the political lunacy of TheTVdb will know what I’m talking about.)
  • Can’t drag to fast forward anymore so if the app messes up can’t go back to where I was 1/5

    By rngchiefbob
    Please fix
  • Very confusing 4/5

    By cookecakess
    I love plex and enjoy using it all the time. When I’m logged in on my fire TV though, it has no problem. But when I’m logged into my iOS or on a phone watching it, it always only lets me watch one minute of what I’m watching then cuts it off. There is also no way or instructions on how to log into a member account.

  • If you like commercials 3/5

    By RayROnline
    You will love this app. Commercial blocks come every 10 to 15 minutes with three or four commercials up to 60 seconds each. It’s frustrating because there is a good selection but they’re trying to grab money by over packing the spots.
  • Ads 1/5

    By Tami Neal
    Add Ads Ads & more Ads! TOO MANY ADS
  • Meh 2/5

    By Alerogls
    Finally sprung for the lifetime pass so I could use my phone. It’s a bit underwhelming. Not much benefit to it besides unlocking mobile app. Thing doesn’t sync right with server. All my TVs do but the mobile app doesn’t update what I last played on tv so then I have to figure out where I left off.
  • I paid for iOS , still won’t work with local server 1/5

    By Who cares this app is bad
    I paid for this , it doesn’t work on my phone still. Works on my computers, roku ...etc. but iOS still won’t stream from my local server.
  • Can’t Play Video in Library 1/5

    By DennisLo123
    Started on version 7.8.1 and latest version still didn’t fix not able to play video in Library. Got “Couldn’t retrieve the play queue for this item” message. But I can play videos in Library on my PC and Roku. Also, found out no HEIC support. I’m using this app with WD My Cloud PR2100. A bit disappointed for paying lifetime subscription.

  • Why did you remove sync? 3/5

    By HectorAlondra
    I used to be able to sync all my libraries to my app at home via wifi or cellular and now I can’t. The option was in the context menu under list mode. The option was taken away. It was the only reason why I subscribed to the Plex pass. (Very upset).
