Plex-iOS-app-iconPlex, the popular media server app for Mac, iOS and Apple TV, received an update today to its iPhone and iPad app that brings a number of performance improvements that address issues users have been noticing since the last major update. Among the fixes is a much improved and more responsive browser, fixes for multi-part playback, and a “clear cached data” function that actually works as you’d expect. A few of the fixes should help to get rid of any crashes that you might have been experiencing recently:

We squashed a bug that reared its ugly head when attempting to display items without thumbnail images, which could cause the app to crash on launch or when signing in to myPlex.

A full list of what’s new in version 3.2.3 of the Plex app for iOS is below:
