Plex is awesome and this is awesome. My only gripe is that the remote needs some serious work. You can't even access the on screen display to turn on subtitles while watching movies! The developers are aware of this and I expect updates in the not-so-distant future.

Won't even open... Just installed it on my S5 and it fails to open. Restarted my phone, didn't help. I was hoping to use it as a remote for my Plex HT. Bummed...

Great Application - On all platforms This is a really great application. Plays video streamed from a PC server faultlessly. The andriod app also forwards this stream to my TV through chromecast. After using plex for 3 years I can say there is nothing better out there.
