Mobile optimized PMS interface or app

I was wondering... today we do a lot of things just with our phones/tablet, I manage my server with SSH on an iPhone or on an iPad using some terminal apps, and on the iPad I can manage PMS web interface in Safari quite well (just some issues with hovering). But it would be great, really great, to have a dedicated app or at least a dedicated user interface for managing PMS on a "small screen mobile device", something simplified and streamlined. I don't know if I'm the only one to think this might be a good idea, maybe it's too much work for a limited user base.

    I would really like and mobile/tablet optimised version of Plex web. There are often problems with thing who need hover. Like adding a new lib, show transcoding info in activity screen and to update lib manually i sometimes need to tap 2-3 times on the button. Sometimes it works that slow that i accidentally chancel the update again before it could really start. Also some styling bug on tablet that make it hard to do all stuff without a computer. The popup like on agents settings are extrem buggy.

    So yes, please update the Plex Web or give us an app for that please.

    One other thing is that the new plex web design is somewhat "responsive" on the screen size, but in a weird way: on a small iPhone 5s screen if I pinch to zoom in (and be able to read something :D) the interface "reacts" usually covering what I'd like to click :D
