"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 used to be amazing until they raised the price of plex pass to 5 dollars per month, and now to use your plex media server you NEED plex pass...plex, if you wanna charge for plex pass thats fine but you think $5 per month is acceptible? realize netflix is $8 and you get all the content they have. opposed to paying you $5 per month for no content other then what we provide ourselves...if
