  • New app is horrid

    By TimStephens
    Too much clicking just to get to unwatched/unplayed tv show filter every time I open the app. The old version was quick but there’s only a small subset of things I can add to the home screen and while unwatched movies is one, unwatched tv is not.
  • Used to be good

    By brick_jersey_johnny
    Terrible UI changes, and app takes forever to load library (even while on LAN with server).
  • Gets better all the time

    By LBIP
    The Plex Tv app still needs work but the quality is mpressive.
  • Update crashes on launch

    By Eriksweeklyphoto
    Formerly excellent app now crashes on launch on my iPhone 6S+ running iOS 11. Totally unusable.
  • Bring back the previous version

    By Polar_Cat
    Absolutely love Plex and use it on multiple devices with multiple users. The new iOS UI is horrible and unintuitive. Everything takes 3 to 8 more clicks than previous versions. Please listen to your users and fix this mess.
  • New UI is a step backwards

    By Chazwarp923
    The UI in that came with the 5.0 update is a massive step backwards in user experience. Many things are now unintuitive and hidden. I am a very tech proficient person and it is still very hard to use. Try getting someone older to learn this app. It's a nightmare.
  • New UI is horrible

    By 10david2
    I love Plex, but hate the new UI for this app! Please change back to the old one.
  • Where the H3LL are my folders??

    By Qjqjqjqjqjdjfgfh
    The stupid developers keep changing the app and now all of my folders are gone. I do NOT need any new “thrill of the moment” crap interface. Let me view my media the way I want to. You made me put it into folder and now you make it impossible for me to just look at the folders. On the FireTV app you force me to click twice to get into my folders. Stupid and not at all in line with good UX design. Stop adding crap. I don’t want news. I don’t want this horrible new interface. Add it if you want and allow me to opt-in if I want to use it. But let me save you dev effort. I DO NOT WANT IT. Start reading your forums and listen you your subscribers.
  • What the heck happened with this update?

    By therealblackburn
    So where is my Plex Server now? Never had any problems, Plex was great, now Inopen the app and there zip, zero, nada. Server is still running, web app comes up fine. What’s up with the phone app? Do you HAVE to claim the server now? If so, way to make a stupid decision.
  • No thumbnails since last update
