Plex pulls together all of your media on your computer into one application. The Plex iPhone App pushes all of that media to your mobile device. It's great to have 100% of my media collection with me at all times. I really enjoy using the Plex App to watch one of my movies or TV shows while I'm waiting for a flight at the airport, or on a treadmill at the gym. Depending on the strength of your internet or cell connection, your video quality may fall below your personally acceptable standards, but in my experience the quality is more than fine 9 times out of 10.
In order to access your media remotely, you will need to do a bit of setup within the Plex Media Manager on your computer, and perhaps also within your router. This may take some knowledge of how to open ports on your router, but for the most part Plex does the heavy lifting in the setup.

The Plex App is available in the iTunes store. The $4.99 price tag may scare some people off, but having purchased the app several months ago, I can say that if you have taken the time to organize your media and use Plex on your computer, it is well worth the five dollars to have all that media in your pocket wherever you go. There is also a Plex App for iPad, which I also use. It is extremely similar to the iPhone version.
Do you use the Plex iPhone App? Have you had a good experience with it?
