Reliable Dashboard App

I think it’s awesome that we have access to this information, it’s something that it’s already from Plex but it’s not easily accessible from their end, with this that has changed, the only thing I am wishing for for something like this is, the ability to change artwork and manage that info, hope there are some updates planned for the future, so far the app has worked flawlessly, I bought the premium so I can take the most out of it, this has replaced Tautulli for me. The only thing I am not a fan of is the name/logo, but that is just me being picky.

Great way to check my Plex server

I love Varys! It allows me quick access to a ton of information on my Plex server in real-time. Being able to change permissions for friends, seeing who is watching what, the performance of the server, and much more really was worth the few dollars it was asking for. I’m glad to help contribute to a worthwhile app that really does offer a good experience and is quite easy to navigate. If anyone is on the fence about spending a few dollars, just do it, it’s something you won’t regret.

Works instantly. Works every time.

I really like this app. My only misgiving is the stance that it shall never incorporate the ability to be used remotely. I understand their reasoning, but it’s not compatible with a major facet and feature of PLEX- its ability for remote usage. Remote usage is an ability many PLEX users celebrate, so I don’t regard the ability as unexpected in a PLEX-related app. The app is great, but being confined to my local network, limits its usefulness to simply saving me the 30’ walk to my desktop.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback! Please make sure you did setup Plex remote access and it's working properly, the app will use the same connection. There are already plenty of users out there that got this app working remotely without any issues :)
