Plex Gets iOS 7 Overhaul, New Media Player, And More


Essential media player application Plex is now out in a new version for iOS users — adding support for the latest firmware along with a refreshed media component.

With the expected iOS 7 “look and feel” newly incorporated, Plex 3.3 now comes with Apple’s customary flat design and minimalistic graphics.

There’s also a new player for music and videos, alongside various improvements on the performance and stability front.

The update is free for all existing users, while newcomers will pay $4.99 for it.

(Note: it’s worth it, in this writer’s opinion.)

    Errrr…where’s the overhaul?

    I would completely avoid the 3.3 upgrade. There are loads of issues with it. There are crash problems, syncing problems, the remote control option doesn’t work, the progress indicator is broken and doesn’t save your show status. Their forums are full of complaints.
