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.

Just what I’ve been looking for

OMG I’m a big heavy user of Plex and I have been wanting this type of Monitor and access control for the longest time but it was never provided by Plex. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I was so excited I bought it before I even used it and I’m totally satisfied. Of course I agree with the last review, Regarding the name and logo, seems pretty simplistic. In any case love you thank you
