    "Plex is my personal favorite for media streaming. Any video/photo/music file you own on a computer can be seamlessly streamed right to your favorite device! That includes video game platforms such as Xbox and Playstation. Simply install Plex on your computer, show it where to look for files, and done! Open the Plex app on your streaming device and your digital library is at your fingertips! You'll love it."

    "Plex doesn't work very well for a TV guide app. It's great for viewing media that you already own, but unless you have the knowledge or look up ways to integrate Plex into your broadcast experience, it can be difficult to know what shows are coming on without an outside source. It's fairly simple to do, but if you aren't familiar with doing it, there are much better suited apps for a TV guide."

    "This is one of the best apps ever. I was waiting for this because there is so much problem when you transfer or receive a data and it does not play or display because it is not supporting. With this app you do not have to get into any hassle because Plex becomes the centralised controller of your device by automatically displaying in its own app."

    "This app has received a lot of flak lately but the devs have addressed most of the issues plaguing it with the recent updates. Sync works more consistently and the new music player works better now. There's still a lot of bugs to address but it's getting there."
