WP8 Plex completely new or an update?

jebrumjebrum Posts: 104Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

So a Plex client for WP8 was semi announced today.

Any word on if this will be an additional purchase for somebody who has already purchased the WP7 client on a WP8 device?

    It'll be as free as we can make it. As long as the Microsoft store allows us to make it an upgrade (which it should), it'll be a completely free upgrade for existing users :)

    Excellent! Given the price of the first one, which has been (abandoned?) for a year or more, this is good news! Thanks :)

    It's been a lean year for WP users of Plex but may be the drought is over. Happy days!

    Great news!

    Thanks. Any info on when you guys will be releasing it, and a feature set? Or is it too premature?

    Great news indeed! My phone is ready and waiting! The biggest win for me would be PlexSync.

    Is this then only to Windows Phone 8?

    or will the Windows Phone 7 app also be updated?

    It's only for windows phone 8. MSFT changed too much between 7.5 and 8 for anything else to make sense :(

    Please note that you can leave the old version in the store for WP7, and that a new version can be targeted at WP8 only. The people from Grasshopper do this as well. That makes managing the app a lot easier in upgrade scenario's.

    Yup, that's likely what we will do.

    Any ETA on this? I had asummed the list of apps from http://blogs.windows.com/windows_phone/b/windowsphone/archive/2013/10/22/instagram-isn-t-the-only-great-app-coming-to-windows-phone-here-s-the-full-list.aspx would have arrived by now or in the next week with new phones being released. Instagram and Plex are the only straglers from the list.

    I just hope that whoever bought this Plex WP7 App in WP8 doesn't need to pay extra for the upcoming upgrade. Actually I purchased it minutes ago, given the results on my Macbook. PS3 App could be better, but this WP7 one... NO SRT, unacceptable. For foregin users is a must. And performance...I just hope this investment, that i gladly paid, won't end up in the thrash.

    This is really stunning news. I actually don't mind re-purchasing if that's what it takes to support the plex platform.
