Plex For iOS Gets A Complete Redesign In New Update

The updated Plex for iOS now supports an even richer media browsing. With that said, you would now get recommendations, view similar movies and also the ability to view directors or actor based movies from within the Plex app. This enhances the functionality of the app and gives more of a personal feel to the Plex user on iOS.

Other than this, the Plex for iOS update also adds integration for the Rotten Tomatoes. This makes viewing reviews and ratings for your favorite movies as easy as it could be and right from within the app. You no longer have to open a separate app for it.

Video chapters are also part of the Plex update as now you can skip movie chapters and jump to certain scenes. There are two ways how Plex can fetch chapter information, read it from user's media files or the ChapterDb website.

Finally, Plex's latest Sync v2 technology has been introduced in the update. For all those not familiar with it, it improves the speed and stability of Plex Sync.

However, users can unlock more features with Plex Pass account or use in-app-purchases.
