This review is strictly for using MrMC as a remote and/or client for Plex. Don't waste your time let alone purchase the full version. This is the typical coder's app. I'm sure it's elegant but only in the mind of its parent. The "human" interface stinks. Nonsense like it takes about 30 seconds to pull up the video controls (pause, FF, etc). Not because the app is slow. But because it is a complete mystery to anyone in this household as to how to access them. 3 of us have spent 2 days trying to find the magic touch that shows them. And all of us have found the only way is to tap all over the place, one finger, two fingers, whatever. Usually takes about 30 seconds before the controls suddenly appear. At which point, if you wanted a pause, you're not too impressed with MrMC. Setup is perplexing. Alphabetical order does not exist in the main menu, nor can the order be changed. I can go on but suffice to say, this might be a great client and/or remote for Plex. But it's not.


Decent app, but horrible on IOS

I wanted a consistent app to play files from my NAS and was using MRMC on my Shield and when I picked up an Apple TV 4K I was happy to see it on IOS, but the functionality is not on par with the Shield and while the Apple TV 4K has better PQ I can not say the same for MRMC which no matter what settings I play with has raised blacks such that there is no perfect black even in the letter box bars. Very disappointed this app is such a mess.

Basically Kodi for tvOS

There have been many updates since many of the negative reviews. Many bugs have been squashed and many new features have been introduced. This app is basically Kodi for tvOS. There are a plethora of options to customize your experience and this is one of the few apps for tvOS that supports 7.1 atmos audio. There is also no subscription, so you get the full deal for only a few dollars. Compared to the Nvidia shield, this app makes tvOS much better.
