App Store Description

Plex is a media streaming powerhouse for all of your content needs. Not only does it organize your video, music, and photo collections, giving you instant access on all of your devices, but Plex is also the last app you will ever need for personalized video news. AND, with our premium Plex Pass, you can record over-the-air television and watch anywhere with a supported digital antenna and tuner. Using the free Plex Media Server software available at http://www.plex.tv/downloads on your computer, NAS, or favorite cloud drive (Google Drive, OneDrive, or Dropbox), plus the Plex app, you can enjoy all of your media–even that DVR-ed content!–on all your devices.

FREE FUNCTIONALITY: Unlimited flinging of photos and videos from the Camera Roll on your phone or tablet to Plex apps; unlimited streaming of any media on your Plex Media Server to other Plex apps; control your big screen Plex apps with your mobile device. LIMITATION: Playing media from your Plex Media Server to your iOS device is limited (one minute for music and video, watermark on photos) until the app is unlocked. TO UNLOCK FULL FUNCTIONALITY: Use a Plex Pass-enabled account to sign into the app -OR- make a small, one-time, in-app purchase of just the app itself.
