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 app for the price!

Pros: -Has a lot of info about your server -Shows CPU, RAM and Bandwidth usage -Shows history of everything played on the server and by who -Has a Dashboard of all your users and the usage between Movies and TV -Shows if there’s an Update available -Shows all users and their devices that have synced media from the server Cons: -The badge icon only shows activity for the current server. Would be great if could send activity notifications in regards to all your servers like the stock Plex app does -Dashboard doesn’t have an overview of all server activity. Have to go into each Server individually to see if there’s activity.

Essential for Plex Enthusiasts!

I can’t express how much I appreciate this app! As a dedicated Plex user, I was searching for a way to effortlessly keep tabs on my Plex account activity, and this app is the perfect solution.

One of the standout features of Varys is its incredibly useful widget feature. Widgets have become an integral part of our smartphone experience, and this app leverages them brilliantly.

This app has truly enhanced my Plex experience. It’s like having a personal Plex assistant in my pocket. Kudos to the developers for creating such a valuable tool for Plex enthusiasts like me. Highly recommended! 🚀🍿📺
