  1. Notification of new server content(allow people to subscribe to a tv show or music artist)

    Allow App users to subscribe to a TV Show, Music Artist, Movie Genre, or even a photo album. When new content is added the app notifies users on their phone. Should not be a feature of Plex Cloud.

    (perhaps a setting should go further, and allow for automatic download of that new content on wifi or via mobile if app user explicitly agrees to after an overlay explains data usage)

    • Move (internal) sync location out of root and back to standard /android/data location

      Pretty self explanatory, coming from a mobile device with an external SD card where my sync content was easily accessible, I was dismayed to find that internal sync requires root access to see its contents. I have no idea why, but it needs remedied asap.

      • UI Fixes

        A few changes to the UI I think to make it more consistent: (This is all by the android app perspective but should be applied everywhere)

        You can go into a picture and hit the tags, it will show you an options for this day. Tap into it and you're presented with all the pictures taken on that day, tap to go into one and you'll see the picture. Now back out the picture. You are not taken to the list of pictures on that day, you'll taken all the way back to where you started. This should take you…

        • Tall screen aspect support

          Support for the newer and generally now standard 'tall' aspect screens (18.5/9 etc)

          All the other major video players have support (YouTube / Netflix, even the skyQ app has it)

          • Library folder view back to the app

            Because of a very large library I and I know a lot of others wanna have the folder view option back. That function was so beautiful when you have your whole collection ordered in a nice folder structure. So you link the librarby to the folders video, music and photo. Inside of those folders there is a nice structure to work with. Now we just have one big video library with all the movies inside from children to adult that Plex found inside the nice folder structure.

            • Add size-to-fit feature

              Allow a size-to-fit option (ala VLC and most standalone video apps) to allow devices with non-16:9 aspect ratios to let the user have their preferred display format for video playback.

                  • Live TV in Android Mobile

                    Even though the whole DVR is pretty useless to Prime users who have cable that's locked down with DRM, I do like the Live TV feature to watch local channels and the Dodgers.

                    I was surprised that this wasn't launched when the iOS Live TV was launched. It would seem keeping the mobile platforms aligned would be a priority?

                    • Hourly server ping / status on mobile apps.

                      Yes, full server control would be ideal. But for now would it be possible to have the mobile apps just do a simple "are you there" ping?

                      From time to time I have power issues and the UPS powers down the server. I would just like an alert on my phone when my PMS is down so I can remote into my IPMI and power it back up.

                      • Allow server owner to set remote playback quality for each individual user.

                        I have friends that have 2 or 3 streams going at the same time to all of their kids tablets. I would like to limit them to 1.5Mbps 480p.

                        My family on the other hand only watches content on their home big screen TV. I would like to allow them 4Mbps 720p.

                        • Add "remove from On Deck" option to item's ... menu

                          For remote shares, or your own PMS libraries, add a simple "remove this item / series from On Deck" option to the ... menu.

                          I'd read about the work arounds involving marking the item as watched/unwatched, but that is a work around. That term implies it is a problem users are having, and this would seer to be a simple, low impact fix.

                          • Filter by date

                            We currently get to filter by year but I'd like to be able to filter by date. If these could be chained that would be lovely. Ex: I select 2016 but I take thousands of pictures a year I then add June, but oops I remember June is a busy month and I think what I'm looking for is on the 9th so I then add 9th

                                    With the DVR Beta now added to the mainline Plex Server app, it would be great to be able to manage and schedule DVR recordings from the Android app.

                                    • Smart location selection

                                      I usually use my Android phone and Plex for Android app to consume media on the go, since I prefer to save data traffic I listen to music that is sync´d.

                                      Almost everytime I start up Plex on my phone it seems to default to my server, so I daily need to change location to access my local content.

                                      I would wish the app to be smart on the location, like:

                                      - If device has no syncd concent default to server.
                                      - If device is on wifi default to server.
                                      - If device is on data default to local content.
