App Deal: Plex on sale for $.99 at Amazon’s Appstore today



Plex is quite the expensive app at $5. It’s worth it if you’re big on digital media consumption, but it’s still a tough pill to swallow for a mobile smartphone app. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to grab it then now is your chance — Amazon has it up for just $.99 cents today.

Plex is a multimedia server for your PC that can serve up videos, photo and music to any compatible device. It has a robust set of features, including syncing to services like Dropbox and Google Drive, offline viewing (only with a Plex Pass subscription), and access to hundreds of online “channels” from your favorite content providers.

Getting apps on the Amazon Appstore isn’t always desirable for anyone not using a Kindle Fire. For starters, some developers tend to update apps much later than they would the Google Play version, so getting the latest features is often a pain. And having to maintain accounts and apps from two different sources is just a pain in general.

If you don’t mind the caveats, though, then this is one deal you won’t want to pass up. Head here to take advantage.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Too bad I bought this at regular price, but it was w/ free amazon coins, so I did get the app for free technically.

  2. It’s already free if you have PlexPass

    It also gives you the Roku channel for free

  3. Pro cheapskate tip: Linking back to the previous article about 1000 free coins for downloading apps/games, Plex is now free and you still have $9 in store credit. No need to actually install the other featured apps, your account is instantly credited.

    1. Just did this and it took all of 5 minutes.

    2. Even cheapskate-ier – You can buy Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas with 700 of the 1000 couns and get 2000 in return. This leads to a net profit of 2300 coins.

      After doing that, now buy plex with 100 of those said coins.

  4. It’s great you can get it for .99 cents. The issue is that it is an older version.

    The Amazon Version is

    The Google Play Version is

    I still might buy it though in hopes they update it.

      1. Thanks! The reviews were talking about how they are out of date.

        1. Yeah it takes longer to update on the amazon app store for what ever reason then it does on the Play Store so yeah you will see a newer version on the amazon app store after its been out on the play store for a while. It kind of sucks at times.

          I own a Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ without the play store.

  5. If you don’t already have Plex you are truly missing out. Seriously.

  6. Well I got sucked into buying and cannot get this working at all. I have 3 pc’s, 2 phones and 2 tablets and none of them see one another. I’m on the same network and can readily share files but Plex doesn’t work for me. Is there a useful guide anywhere? The one on the Plex site is useless.

    1. You might be better off posting in the Plex forums. You are asking someone to troubleshoot your setup (in a website comments section) which may have a hundred different issues going on.

      1. Thanks for the reply but I rather not join up to more forums. Thats why I asked here :)

  7. If you don’t already have Plex, go buy it. Now. I paid full price for it and its by far the best app I’ve purchased. Once they opened it up so I could cast everything to my Chromecast without having to sign up for their subscription, I was so happy with how it worked that I bought the subscription even though I don’t use any of the additional features that the subscription gave me. Its just a brilliant app/service.
