Really wanted to like it... Windows 8.1 Pro, PLEX media server 0.9.11.16, and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4. Initially couldn't find my PLEX media server. Simple fix was manually entering server IP address in App settings menu as "preferred server". My folders then appeared on restart; HOWEVER, app crashes every time I select a folder to play a video. Have uninstalled/reinstalled and rebooted tablet and computer several times to no avail. Shame, really wanted to like this app.

Ads in paid app DOES NOT WORK AFTER RECENT UPDATE. Since the last update I cannot get past the first screen where I select either "Movies" or "Series" from my server because the app keeps on crashing at that point. I do report it everytime. Please check this.
