It works.....temporarily!!

Having used the desktop app remotely between my Macs I was somewhat sceptical of the iPad app. I didn’t want to pay for something that didn’t work the way I wanted. I was used to using Air Video but support for that stopped when IOS 11 came out so I had no choice. However, my fears were unnecessary. I only stream movies with the setup being a little complicated at first particularly doing this remotely but it works....well! The option to play the movie in higher quality is a bonus as is the addition of subtitles if available. I also like the fact you can continue on a different system from where you left off.
The small price I paid is enough and I’m more than happy with it as long as it continues to be supported on the iPads.
UPDATE:- no support for older Macs. All of a sudden it has stopped working and is asking for server version 1.3. This would not in itself be an issue but it still works perfectly when streaming to PS4. So it seems that the support fails at the first hurdle as they do not offer help, merely direct you to the forums. This has rendered it useless as a paid app and the customer service is not existent.
Go for a VLC option which is tried and tested.

Media networking made very tiresome at the moment

As a visually impaired user of the IOS app, I am always having to use the app with Apples Voice Over text to speech running to be able to navigate around. This has been fantastic for those like me and those people who may have had to help out when possible in the past. However the latest version has not fixed the 3D Touch problem with voiceover turned on you cannot bring the controls up, which is quite annoying and now leaves me, and for the lack of a better word, blind. The other really irritating NEW thing is totally unresponsive playback controls, where the only way to get it to shut up is to manually close the app. When you do run it again and try to play something, you may now have two different things playing at once, this is probably the AI trying to make up for lost time and just cramming more in. Pretty please Plex team fix my miracle media machine.

Plex is Great, App is deteriorating

I absolutely love Plex, have used it for years, have the lifetime pass etc. However, the iOS app is just getting worse. It has now started refusing to play music tracks that none of my other devices are struggling with and it has never failed to play them before (prompting me to write this review). The syncing process is not easy to be sure if it's working or not. The Offline mode which I really rely on, often isn't in offline mode when it says it is, and you have to switch it off and on again to get it to work. The "Most played in Month" feature seems to pick arbitrary months to display data for, no idea of the logic and I doubt the selections it shows too. Those are the things off the top of my head that annoy me on a regular basis. I will re-do this review of they fix the issues, I've no idea why it's so bad when Plex itself is so good. A big disappointment and a constant frustration. Only gets the second star because it works sometimes.
