Plex for Android, a media server/remote app for controlling all of your content, was just given a  major update, bringing it up to version 2.0.2.1 and introducing full support for Ice Cream Sandwich.

The majority of the update focuses on fixing everything that was broken post ICS: auto configuration of playback now works as expected, and network connectivity issues during video sizing and resuming playback was also addressed. As for new features, users now have access to a zoom button and a video zoom mode for cycling between “fit to screen” and “full screen” views.

They have also introduced some user interface tweaks for “middle sized” devices (pictured above), which they said will apply to the Kindle Fire and should work on Samsung’s 7-inch lineup. A full list of what is included in the update is below. Users can grab the app from the Market here.
