  • Plex for iPhone & iPad Coming Soon

    For a long time now, Mac OS X has had many media center replacements to choose from that are far more robust that Apple’s Front Row. Now it seems that Plex Media Center is poised to take the lead in this very competitive arena.

    Plex Media Center 9 is due for imminent release and with it comes a new app for iPhone and iPad. This mobile version of Plex will allow seamless integration between the iApp and desktop version. You will be able to start watching a show on your PC and pick up right where you left off on your iPhone or iPad. All of your viewing information will be synced up perfectly.

    Plex mobile app will turn your iPhone into a full-featured remote. This means that you will be able to use your phone to control Plex on your PC via your iPhone anywhere in your house. Play media where you want, when you want, with one app, your iPhone, and your PC!

    If the rumors of a new version of Apple TV are true, then this new version of Plex for Mac with iOS integration will be welcome for those looking to cut off the cable companies permanently, once and for all. I look forward to that myself.

      Plex iOS streams media from a Plex media server Only. AirVideo streams from an AirVideo media server Only.

      The difference comes to those of us that run Plex. I've been running mine for quite some time now, but had to get AirVideo to watch on my iPhone and Snatch for a Plex remote on my iPhone. Now I can get te iOS versions and Upgrade to Plex 9.x and I'm golden.

      I use the VLC remote app now and it's sooooo handy and pretty similar to this with the ability to control stuff playing on your computer. But if this integrates the ability to control Apple TV that'll be even better!

      For those who do not know about Plex...

      Plex is a fork of XBMC (XBox Media Center) which was originally a media center hack for the original Xbox. This expanded when they released versions of XBMC for Mac, PC, & Linux. The Mac XBMC project forked, one of which produced Plex.

      All of this has long roots to the original XBMC - still one of the best MC solutions around.
