Plex: Movies, TV, Music & More app reviews

  • Almost perfect 4/5

    By this game has bad movements
    There are too many ads and there are happening every 15-20 minutes so if I watch an 1hr+ movie I spend more time watching ads the movie
  • download movies 2/5

    By cozzygram
    i pay the pass and i cant download movies in the ios app, fix it
  • Gross 1/5

    By Friend John
    They left you pay for it but it barely works. Computer dims and goes to sleep if you don't move the mouse constantly. Mouse pointer never fades. Awful
  • Potato 1/5

    By bitemd
    Why do I have to pay to stream it to my phone
  • PlexMaster 5/5

    By asimo0284
    Plex really helps me, but what’s with the problems with it? I mean no offense, but it always lags or keeps on doing the loading candy thing and it’s impossible to watch and it’s annoying. But maybe the developers will fix this issue in the next update? Please. 😒 🙂
  • Plex is the best 5/5

    By Joedejong.mister horror?
    The first time I downloaded the Plex app I was able to create a free account no problems with it whatsoever, and the cool thing about Plex, is that I can watch live TV channels, such as ElectricNow, and dark matter TV, and many others, I also have Plex on my Roku, and I also lots of movies on Plex as well, but one problem I’m visually impaired and whenever I go to look for a channel but I am I watch Plex on my iPad and on my iPod touch, whenever I swipe for channels or to listen to the name of the channels, it only says the name of the TV show or movie that’s on, so if you could fix that feature that would be great, and another thing too, I would love to cast plugs to my Roku express, and my Roku premier, and whenever I go to choose a device to airplay or cast to for some reason it won’t let me cast so please fix that in and that would be great, love Plex I get Plex five stars, so to the developer of Plex love the app keep bringing new features and new updates, and keep expanding
  • I cannot unlimited by $4.99 on iOS platform 1/5

    By JobXulin
    What can I do?
  • Mostly Good 3/5

    By Biggus Bubbles
    The app works pretty well for streaming media at home. Here are the pain points. - if you are listening to an audio book the app has a hard time remembering where you left off. There should be an easier way to manage your audio book listening experience. - Like other reviews, the download content for later feature is crap. It fails to download content. Then it will just randomly delete content you have already downloaded. Don’t rely on this feature if you plan to enjoy your content while traveling.
  • Complaint 2/5

    By pennyscount
    Every time I get a new Phone I have to pay the (Haha) ONE Time fee!!! Repeatedly!!!!!
  • Becoming Unusable 2/5

    By jennd712
    I’m not sure what’s happening on the iOS side of development, but the app is becoming unusable in airplane mode. There doesn’t seem to be a way to delete Downloads anymore, the volume control situation continues to be ignored. It’s been a nice run, but all Plex currently does, is take up space I could use for something else which is frustrating because it works great when I’m at home and online.
  • Solid three stars, minus another 2… 1/5

    By DyreLogan
    Good app, but I use it mainly on my Apple TV 4K with all the updated software, including updated Plex servers. The main problem I have are the subtitles that are grabbed from the net are horribly unstable. Whichever one you choose they show for a short time then disappear. You have to either close the app and open it again, hit BACK on the Apple TV control, or head to the subtitles section and choose the subtitles AGAIN for it to work. But, then it disappears after a few seconds again. This app has been updated MANY times but the developer STILL hasn't fixed this issue. My recommendation, download the subtitles from the net ahead of time and toss them in the same folder your movie is located and then they should work. I have noticed that they remain on the screen when the subtitles are in the same folder and selected that way. Update: Had to change my review slightly and they lose two more stars for “choosing sides” and choosing to represent and care about one small group of people over everyone else. If you want to support the lgbt community, then go ahead, but I cannot support companies that support this community which is very hateful towards straight and nuclear families.
  • Good app but miss now playing often 4/5

    By Cloudboy08
    This is a good app. Works well with the Plex server. However, the “now playing” window is often missing. This lead to no way to stop playing from within the app.
  • doesn’t work well w/ chromecast 2/5

    By Wefubedcnijedc
    once i’ve started watching something with chromecast, if i open the app while it’s playing to pause, change subtitle settings, etc, plex fully disconnects. when i reconnect i have to watch another full set of ads and then the show or movie doesn’t pick up exactly where it left off when it disconnected (skips forward i’m guessing to the next commercial break). this makes the app basically unusable for me unfortunately.

  • Can use 1 app for ALL TV Needs 5/5

    By K.ALF01
    Absolutely Love this app!! Anything TV, I can access from Plex!!
  • Keep it up! 5/5

    By Cerazo
    What a well made and clean app to access your libraries with. It has nearly every feature you want down to even shuffling your media. Good stuff.
  • All of a sudden Tidal only plays previews. I am paying $10 per month to Plex for Tidal. 1/5

    By jerr_gr6
    Tidal is not playing on Plex which is who I pay for Tidal. Nothing in the faqs
  • I can’t watch movies 😡 2/5

    By jacksonguymon
    I can’t watch movies and it won’t let me see any thing when I go on plex I hate this please fix it
  • Great app, but room for improvement 2/5

    By snowboardjoe
    Syncing of content is infuriating and wasted so much time. Not nearly enough information to show how long sync will take. Syncs will not happen background. Many times the sync process gets stuck for no apparent reason. Syncing should never be this hard.
  • always asking for reviews 1/5

    By Filiberto pewp
    here it id, stop asking
  • Solid performance 5/5

    By rwh3591
    Does exactly what it is supposed to do with minimal hassles or problems.
  • Download functionality doesn’t work. 1/5

    By Uwhsushens
    Please hire an outside consultant to fix the download functionality. Your devs aren’t cutting it.
  • Longtime Plex User 2/5

    By Ljmcq
    I have been a plex user for years. I absolutely love it. Having said that, the latest version of the IOS app seems have a problem with the transcoder as my songs don’t play using cellular but have no problem on wireless. It’s not my data plan as I have plenty and my ISP isn’t throttling me. I tested this by playing from my wireless on my iPhone and then on my iPhone from cellular. Wireless was flawless, cellular froze up after 3-4 tracks. Made my iPhone a hotspot for my laptop and was able to play tracks flawlessly on laptop.
  • Beyond amazing 5/5

    By Bigreddo
    I paid for the full version and use Plex on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and FireTV. Plex is awesome.
  • Bad delays 3/5

    By Septer64
    I only started watching movies recently.But lately there has been delays and shutdowns. I’m starting to wonder if there is a bug or something. Hopefully they will fix this . I do like the live TV. There high paying comercial are long. But you can’t go wrong with free programming.
  • Much Better than Android 5/5

    By Modeler_2
    I’ve switched over from a Samsung to iPhone a couple of days ago, and I have to say: I’m impressed! The music library loads much faster, I can skip a song without skipping another song, and I can pause and play for a long period of time (I had to re-open the app on android). Only problem is having Siri to play music. She couldn’t find the application to open music.
  • Loved my Plex for 10 years but… 1/5

    By 10essee
    Ready to move on. It’s no longer stable anymore. I’m pretty handy but sadly tired of troubleshooting every time I want to use it.
  • Needs one feature for mobile app. 5/5

    By helpimonfire
    For the love of god add the skip intro button somehow to the mobile app.
  • Like a science fair project 1/5

    By John_in_IN
    Constantly can’t tune channel. Often fails to record. Great concept. I hope they can get it workkng.
  • Plex downloads are broken 1/5

    By E927
    Plex went to downloads and retired sync at the beginning of this year and it’s never worked for me or many other people. Plex has been made aware of the issue but they have no interest in fixing it. This app is great when it works, but if you’re using it to download movies to your device, forget it!
  • Used to be better with Chromecast 2/5

    By dd36az
    Lately, whenever I switch out of Plex app and switch back, when it reconnects to my Chromecast, it stops it and I have to restart it. It does the same thing on my wife’s iPhone. You should, and used to, be able to reconnect without it disrupting anything.
  • Shuffle still doesn’t work 3/5

    By troyw
    Great app but the shuffle feature is fully nonsense. It shuffles the same few episodes of shows over and over no matter how many there are. Also losing podcasts makes the app a lot less useful for me 🤷🏻‍♂️
  • Insecure connection 4/5

    By leeningfly
    Why there is no allow fallback to insecure connection setting for IOS app? I could find it in PC and Android apk.
  • Excellent App with exception of downloads 4/5

    By Capgun42
    As the title suggests this is an excellent app for managing all of your multimedia! I use it across multiple platforms daily. Everything works flawlessly unless you happen to be in an area without service then you must rely on the download feature. This is a newer service which replaced the old sync feature and unfortunately is flawed and does not work well or at all for larger media files. Often times I will have some files that download properly then at the worst time possible time they delete themselves and try to download again! Very frustrating to say the least. So as long as you don’t have a need to view/listen to your media offline ( like on a plane or while traveling) you won’t be disappointed with this app and the plex services.
  • Ad Breaks Are Too Frequent and Too Long 2/5

    By DrConglomerate
    I only use PLEX as a last resort if I can’t find a movie streaming anywhere else. There are far too many ad breaks and they’re all over two minutes long. It ends up taking over 2 hours to watch an 80 minute movie. Use TUBI instead. Same deal with less and shorter ad breaks.
  • Keeps spinning and buffering 2/5

    By Vermontier
    Can’t pause and resume the videos. Keeps spinning and buffering. Please don’t tell me that it’s my network. Have heard enough every time I asked for help. I have very high speed internet and the mesh network at home.
  • Seriously? 5/5

    By Phoenix021628
    If anyone puts anything less than 5 stars for Plex, they have problems and probably just don’t know how to use it. Hands down, best app you could have if you want to organize your movie and TV show collection. Thanks Plex team. Lifetime Plex Pass member right here.
  • Hit and Miss 2/5

    By CrazyMountaineer
    Great on iPad but lousy on tv. Downloaded app on tv after having a good experience on my iPad. App crashes every single time after commercials finish playing—that doesn’t happen on my iPad. I get an error message to the effect that a playback error has occurred.
  • Stop advertising the bloat. 1/5

    By NerdShowAndTell
    Used to be good, now they are chasing data mining money. Every streaming box already curates your streaming services. so plex is adding redundant features and continues to bloat the app instead of focusing on local server features most originally paid a plex pass for. I have sales notifications off but the app still spammed me during dinner telling me to add my "streaming services". NO.
  • Just wish 5/5

    By gonzo bigman
    Can’t play all my movies on tv especially if it crackle just wish I could
  • Skips ahead 1/5

    By gortex811
    I don’t really understand why no one else seems to have this issue but on my iPad when playing back a movie it will randomly skip ahead 10-30 mins or so. Does anyone else have this issue?
  • Playback unavailable 1/5

    By lars8338
    Always says not playable media playback unavailable
  • Probably 1/5

    By jpppee
    The worst piece of garbage ever.
  • Hate the new logo 1/5

    By XtremeDisappointedToo
    It no longer looks bold & stately. Looks like it was designed by someone that changed the logo on the original SciFi channel to SyFy… and you know what happened to that venture! Please sack the genius who came up with this eye sore and bring back the logo that is pleasing to the eye!
  • Why was the option for background/banner images removed? 3/5

    By Parker J. Williams
    It's all well and good that the app pulls its color cues from the posters of media entries, but it makes it seem otherwise lifeless and boring without being able to see their respective background images. I'm not sure who's such a big fan of the uniform frosted glass look at Plex, but not all of us are.
  • I just want to watch Mandy on my smart tv 1/5

    By Kirikawa
    Casting from the phone app to my smart tv disconnects every 5 minutes, requiring 6 ads everytime I reconnect The smart tv app cannot search movies apparently, so in had to scroll through the entire catalogue to the "M" section to find the movie without using their broken casting app Bad experience, very unhappy, hopefully updates improve the experience (or they release Mandy so I can watch it on Tubi instead)
  • Downloads don’t work anymore 2/5

    By ftrain802
    Can never download movies with this version.
  • I love it 5/5

    By frankmato80
    I give it a 5 of 5
  • iOS Bugs 4/5

    By Cammy Ho
    Been dealing with a really annoying bug on the iOS app. Anytime I turn the screen off while a video is playing, when I turn my device back on and hit play the app will freeze up and I have to force close.
