Stopped working, really frustrating! Stopped working a month or more back and nothing I do will make it work. Shame as it was the best one I had found for a while and now I'm back to getting up and down constantly! Please fix it soon! Would be more stars if it worked obviously!

Sayaka Bergman

Stoped working,but... At least the plex for android app has a decent remote now.

Caesar Ortiz

Not working Stopped working all of a sudden. It's able to locate serverr and player however it just doesn't react to commands. I would give it five stars if it worked again. Hopefully a fix is coming soon.

Luke Wagoner

Better than built in remote on Plex app This works just as advertised and is much easier to use than the built-in remote that comes with the paid Plex app. Navigation is a breeze. Highly recommended. Great job developer!

Bandsharks Box

Painful navigation Could we please get another option for fast forwarding and rewinding? Its almost faster to just watch in real time, well not quite. Seriously give us at least the option to set the interval of the already existing ui forward and reverse.

Jonathan Fry

Stopped Functioning With Plex server update to add user profiles has broke this app.

Jacob Matthews

Perfect I really have no complaints about this app. It's a brilliant implementation of a remote with a touch interface. Interfaces and switches between plex clients with ease.

Anatoly Kozorezov

Broken after update With the newest update to the plex app, this remote gets confused by the pop-up window plex uses to select a video to play. The button selection is disabled in the pop-up window

David Cyrus

Stopped working I was able to use it once, but now not a single button/swipe works. It seems to be a known bug. This was the best plex remote app I found, too bad it stopped working.

Kyle Darling

Great app! Works just as advertised. So easy to set up, and never any connection issues. Thanks for making this! I would pay for premium features such as change skip length, wake over LAN, and maybe a few more remote buttons like next track, shuffle, etc.

Stephen Stuckey

As stated by others. App worked for a day then stopped the next day.

Scott Thibodeau

Used to Work When it was working it was a great remote. Then it just stopped working and no amount of messing with it will fix the issue.

Michael Conte

Doesn't even see my plex server Yes I've tried the settings, yes my server is advertising, yes my players are talking to the server.

My Droid

Doesn't wr Won't connect to any server or player on local network even when I manually supply ip and port.

Ryan Munro

Does the job perfectly

James Knight

? No idea. First time DL it, finds server and player. I'm streaming Plex via mobile to chromecast. Remote didn't do anything.

Michael Yankelev

Not able to connect to PHT I use the latest version of PHT on my Windows 8.1 desktop, and run a Media server on a separate FreeNAS box. I have ESET installed on the PHT box, but even with the firewall completely disabled, I still can't connect. I have also created firewall rules on all Plex ports as per the plex documentation. Can not get the Plex Remote app to detect any clients, even though it finds the server without issues. The UI looks awesome and I would really like to figure out why it doesnt work.

John Tertin

Good App Overall Good app overall - a couple of suggestions would be a settings area to configure the amount of time the "skip ahead" and "skip back" buttons go (currently hard coded at 10 seconds) and the keyboard pass-through does not work (as I tried passing a "]" to Plex to skip forward 10 minutes at a time). Other remotes that offer the keyboard functionality worked fine for this function.

Gerard Helmer

I whine app doesn't work, minutes later it works! Had no luck with the app all afternoon... Whined about it gave 1 star and the bloody thing started working immediately! I don't know what voodoo my whining prompted but app working beautifully! Thanks for your time and effort as the app seriously made my day!

Thisisnitwit nit

Keyboard doesn't work I would normally use the physical keyboard for my htpc to skip ahead since plex home theater is otherwise pretty flaky when it comes to skipping ahead. The keyboard option within this app doesn't work for this purpose. I'm not entirely sure what it does but this is a big deal for me.

Robby Sohal

Seems to work well But why in the world won't it recognize the web app as a player? That's the only reason I would need a remote. It recognizes my phone as a player but then I would just control plex through the actual plex app... Am I missing something? Feedback would be appreciated

Kyle McEvoy

Works great! I setup a Plex server on my desktop and had been using it with my PS3 but ran into issues with Anime that had embedded subtitles. To get around that I took an old Nettop that had chilling in my closet and installed it with Windows 7 and Plex Home Theater. Using that to stream my Anime is perfect. Only issue was that I broke the receiver on my remote during a move. This app does everything that I need in a remote. Very intuitive and extremely easy to setup. Could not be happier with how this all worked out.

Chris Skinner

Doesn't fiind some clients Doesn't work with Roku or Plex for Samsung. Did finally get it to work with pc based Plex

mince roll

Does not work with rasplex No action with rasplex. Finds server and different sections on plex server but does *nothing* when buttons are pressed. No action at all - no errors, nothing. Has all the appearance of being a dummy app. Troubleshooting guide useless.

Kyle Gusek

Working Great! Never in my life had I thought setting up a home theater would be so easy. This app is just as quick and seamless as Plex so far! One thing, OSD doesn't work, Note 2 + Mid 2011 Mac Mini w/Mavericks

Terry Rayner

Excellent This is by far the best plex remote on the market! Unfortunately since upgrading to Plex Home Theatre it no longer works. Hope it's updated soon.

Kenneth Henderson

Not sure what I'm doing wrong... I have Plex installed on my desktop and Chromecast on my TV. I want to be able to control the Plex server to be able to pause/play etc on my TV. Can I do this? When I install your app It finds the server, but it doesn't find any clients. What would the client be? Thanks!

Craig Parkinson

Suggestions On your blog you discuss how you might drop support for connecting via the media server. Well I suggest that using the client discovery on the LAN should occur first as the application is loading, to obtain the IP address of all PHT on the LAN. A list view then shows the user which devices they can connect. However if the search return 0 results, then the traditional menu system should be loaded. Therefore enabling PMC support as well. I would then use a settings menu to allow for the entering of a server IP when using PHT. Currently the remote discovers my server, but it does not discover my PHT clients.

Kalen White

If you uninstall and reinstall plus home theatre it restores function after the latest update

Mayank Bhagya

Good app but a problem The app works perfectly with rasplex but the keyboard doesn't work with the YouTube channel. That is a severe turn off.

Joel Hasan

Flawless Picked up both devices that were running Plex automatically. Found Plex server automatically. Awesome app!

Collin Hurley

question for the dev about text entry I know where I can go to search from the plex homescreen and use the phones keyboard from there. However, is there a way to do it from within a channel? For example, if I go a channel and want to search TV shows, I have to point and click on the on screen keyboard to type, because using the phone keyboard in the remote does not send any info to Plex.

david bonavita

Excellent Means I don't have to get up to change movies anymore. Works perfectly

Josh Wyant

Excellent Remote! Works better than the official plex app remote. Excellent and easy to use. If using Plex home theater, is there any way to add to a playlist or queue? If there was, this would be perfect.

Tom Lewis

Way to basic Check out inspiration from the variety of xbmc remotes in the play store, learn from these. They are superb.

Chris Bguess

Best Plex remote This remote functions great! Best remote for Plex. For some reason it just started going back to the choose client and server screen every time I go to another app, then go back.

Alex K

Nice and simple. Work as charm

Пользователь Google

Nice, but some troubles... Ok, good and pretty. But I have one proposal and one mistake. 1) mistake - function of autopause when incoming call is not work for me. No reaction for call. 2) proposal - would be cool if we can connect our player not only from local net, but from wan (internet) too (as if I use 3G from my smartphone - by use wan IP of plex server and 32400 standart port...

Marvin Jay

Lollipop Samsung Ever since lollipop on Samsung Galaxy Alpha updated it has not worked. Uninstalled and reinstalled doesn't work.

Paul Garner

Doesn't work Says it can't connect to server

Gary Spink

No longer seems to work.

Darren Watt

Doesn't work with PMP (Plex Media Player) Was great with Plex home theatre, but doesn't work with the new player.

Erik Soderberg

Plex + swift = awesome Exactly what I was looking for works perfect with Plex home theater

Stephanie Stewart

Stopped working This worked great for a bit but no longer will sync up. Installed the Plex app instead.

Lee West

Does exactly what it says on the ten. Works brilliantly, just needs basic controls on the lock screen (play, pause, skip & volume). Would be perfect then.

Simon Benoit

As expected Superb app, it does what its supposed. Detected server and client on the fly. Good job

Kent van Heerden

Works well All functions work with Plex Home Theatre except autopause on incoming call.

Ohad Ezra

Great app but horrible UX You need a GUI Designer...

Isabel Penny

Very good Works well for me. Could detect automatically or remember last known players.

Mike Shaw

Compatible with RasPlex! Works great with RasPlex running on a RPI2 B+.

Nick Green

Simple, easy, does what I need it to do.

Gold Phoenix

Does Nothing Finds my Plex server and does nothing after that. Can't control or do anything. Big waste!

Magnus Øverbø

Doesn't work with domain names

sam hill

Can't select the player
