Best audio client for iOS

Prism is by far the best audio client available on iOS for Plex users. I genuinely appreciate the ability to download whole artist discographies, specific albums or my entire library without arbitrary limits (looking at you, Plexamp). Downloads are also apart of the library itself rather than split off into a separate UI which makes it seamless to play music regardless of your connection.

The user interface fits in really well with the iOS design and is pleasant to use and interact with. With Jellyfin and subsonic support coming in a future release, Prism will soon become the go-to audio client for all self-hosters.

Thank you Lachlan for building a great app the community can benefit from. One feature request I have would be to add in playback stats. Plexamp can do this with Plex but could be a private API. Hopefully with Jellyfin support, this could become a possibility.

Fantastic!

This is now the only music app used on my iPhone. Streaming my Plex library of flac files sounds incredible in my car. So far I have had only a single instance of connectivity issues, and that was caused by my cable provider. Otherwise no buffering whatsoever. The only playback issue that I would hope to see improvement on is that the app doesn’t always remember where I was when listening to my entire library on shuffle, but to me that’s a very minor problem. The presentation of the album art and track info is gorgeous, and my only other wish would be that the text in dark mode would be changed to all white, the gray used there is a bit hard to read. Other than that, I’m thrilled to have found this app. Kudos to the developers, really well done!

Really excellent for listening to Plex library

I originally bought this app just to be able to access my Plex music library from CarPlay, which it does pretty well. But I’ve wound up using the app all the time when all I want to do is listen to music. The Plex app tries to do too much, and it’s great to have a single app focused on accessing one type of media from your Plex library.

One thing I do wish is if it was easier to find music in the CarPlay interface. Having buttons dedicated to showing all the Artists or Albums in my library is not useful since it’s just a massive list I have to scroll through. I guess I could get to the album I want to listen to eventually, but I’ll probably get in a car accident while scrolling through the list!
