  • 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.

      I'm using XBMC to control PLEX and it look like alot of the same features. Wonder if this will have enough advantages to make me jump ship.

      So is this similar to the Remote app, except I will be able to play my music/movies that are stored on my MAC right on my iPhone?? As opposed to Remote, where I can merely control them from my phone on my Mac.

      I already have this setup running on my media center with Hippo Remote Pro and Stream To Me, but it will be sweet to have both the Plex controls and the streaming to the idevice all in one app.

      When I saw Plex in the title I thought Eve Online had officially launched an app. A secure Plex buying app would be huge for CCP. I like the UI the dev used for this app.

      Nothing like remote. Like AirVideo and Snatch built into one, but for Plex only.
