So we don’t expect any Android news sites to pick this one up. It’s not like yet another Google app has passed the one billion download mark. But nuVue has quietly (and slowly) received another “achievement earned” in the Play Store. Today we have graduated into the 1,000-5,000 downloads category. True, that’s not an overly-impressive number of zeroes; but perhaps at least golf-clap worthy. Oh, and sale worthy. From now through November 10, both nuVue and its Pay-It-Forward premium features are both 50% off. After all of the “craziness” dies down, we will return back to our plans to take over the world.
It was one year ago today that nuVue made its way into the Play Store. An app we wrote to fill a specific need: new media notifications for our Plex server. Oh, how you’ve grown, little app. Now you speak Emby as well as Plex. You can tell us What’s New, What’s Next, and What’s Playing. You know how to work the remote control. You’ve learned to share with your friends. And you even wear big-boy Material Design clothes now. It seems only fitting that a party is in order!

With the release of version 2.2, nuVue has taken another step away from just being a cool way to get notified of new media on your Plex and Media Browser servers and another step toward being your media server sidekick. Not only can you see what has been recently added, what TV episodes are up next, and what movies you’re in the middle of; but now you can see what is currently being watched. As with all other nuVue features, there is no need to install anything additional on your server. Just enable What’s Playing monitoring, choose whether to check on wi-fi only or any connection type, set your update frequency, and Bob’s your uncle.
Yes, it may sound a bit silly–at least compared to other big-name apps out there. But nuVue just crossed over into the 500-1,000 download category on the Play Store, and, as an independent app developer, we think that’s worth a shout out. Oh, and a sale! So to celebrate, we are taking 25% off the price of both nuVue and its Pay-It-Forward premium feature for one week (sale ends Feb. 20). Now’s your chance to spread the word and get your Plex and Emby friends on board for even cheaper.
Media Browser users can now take full advantage of the new features introduced in nuVue 2.0 (see this post). nuVue 2.1 supports sign-in via Media Browser Connect. Get notification for new media in shared libraries. Send messages to users you share with and users who share with you. Pay-It-Forward and forward media notifications to your shared users who aren’t using nuVue, plus free use of nuVue Shared for users without their own server. Read more »
