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!

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.

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.

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

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.
