"Access your media content from anywhere"

Reviewed by / Jun 21, 2013

Plex for Android is a media player that enables users to organize and watch their media content wherever they are

In a few words, PLEX is media player system associated to a media server for organizing and streaming any media content on any device with a Plex app installed. For example, you can stream your favorite series, movies, photos (whatever media) from a Plex media server installed on your PC to your TV/Tablet/Smartphone Plex client app.

In addition, there are some media content channels that can be installed on your Plex app for a faster access. Thus, channels such as CNET, Youtube, Vimeo and many other can be installed on your Plex app and watch their content from any device. Actually, you can even download browser Plex plugins for queuing videos from any supported media content provider.

Plex for Android app has different sections: recently added, on deck, queue, recommended, channels and shared libraries. The latter is exactly what it sounds like: you can share your library with other Plex users and gain access to theirs and, obviously, add those Plex friends.

I can just recommend you to give it a chance. Plex (and other media player system like XBMC) are changing the way we watch and share media content online. Must-have app.

    Plex really needs to add the option to be able to view file names in list view. For long filenames you can't even read the full filename. You can only see the first 14 characters. Covers are fine for movies but not my home videos/photos. I also can't "cast" to my media players with this app, so I use BubbleUPnP. These are big reasons I use BubbleUPnP over Plex.

    Awesome idea that works. Just make sure to have an adequate CPU in the server!

    Phenomenal application. Removed one star for skipping, lack of resume function on Note 3.
