While our apps work to give you a great default Home screen, everyone’s needs can be different—and can even vary from device to device for the same person.
That’s where the ability to customize things comes in. Our mobile apps allow you to easily choose what appears on your Home screen, which sources of media are available, and how to arrange the available sources.
Tip!: Customizations are associated with the particular app install. If you delete and reinstall Plex on your phone, the customizations would be lost. Similarly, if you customize the app on your iPhone, it does not get mirrored on your iPad.

Edit the Navigation Sidebar
From the navigation sidebar, you’ll be able to choose which source to view, if you have access to more than one. For instance, you might have your own library of photos as well one shared with you by a friend or family member or maybe you have multiple TV libraries of your own. To choose which source you wish to view/access, you simply choose from the navigation sidebar if the item has been pinned to your sidebar (if the source has not been pinned, it can be found by selecting
more from the sidebar). By default, they’ll be arranged with sources from your preferred server listed first followed by other sources located in the
Reorder Navigation Sidebar
Most people will only have one or two sources available for any particular media type, but some people might have several. In that case, you may wish to customize the order in which they’re displayed—so that your favorite or most commonly-used one is at the top, for instance.
The items listed in the navigation sidebar can be reordered or unpinned by highlighting the
Select a source and you can then move it up or down in the list, or unpin it to order things as desired.
You can also choose the
More entry to view additional items or to pin them to the sidebar. Using the
Edit option, you can pin new items to appear in the main navigation sidebar area (By default, new items will be placed at the end of the list).
