Plex is a phenomenal media solution for people with a ton of digital media, who want it organized, categorized, and kept track of. I recently switched to Windows 8 on my new laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad Twist) and found that the same application I was using on my Windows 7 machine did not work as well on Windows 8. After looking into it, I found that there was now an app designed for Windows 8! Sure, it was a few bucks, but Plex is such a solid program there was no reason to feel like it was a ripoff.
Plex for Windows 8 is completely different from the previous versions of Plex Media Center, in that it takes on a bit of the metro style to it. It takes some time to get used to with a keyboard and mouse, but it flows and runs much better than its predecessor. If your computer has a touchscreen as well, this app is worth every penny.
There’s not much different in terms of functionality that changes in the all new format. The main change is the layout and look and feel of it. If you’re on Windows 7, the keyboard and mouse style works incredibly well with that app, but the way that Windows 8 is configured, and the rise of the touchscreen makes this app perfect for Windows 8 users.
There’s not much else to say! Take a look at the screenshots, and let us know what you think of the new format!
