I'd happily pay monthly for an ad-free, better functioning app. Al Jazeera is one of my favorite news sources. Unfortunately, the reading experience in app is marred with bad functionality, intrusive ads, and clunky text. This frustration is what keeps me from being a daily reader. On the positive side, the ability to tune in to live video is awesome.

Great news source, widest breadth of reporting of any international news organization, often a bit MB-aligned but generally neutral. App however has several problems. News stories interface is clunky & doesn't scroll from one story to the next (The BBC app is a good example of how this should work), & the "Watch" function for live broadcasts is terrible, does not seamlessly change from split screen to full screen, is endlessly buffering and just stops after 15 mins & not moving to next segment.

I find Al Jazeera's content to be quite good, however the app gets docked points when attempting to use it on a NVidia Shield Android TV. There is no way to use the remote control to navigate the bottom bar (Top Stories|My Feed|Watch|Browse|More ), or for that matter it's not even possible to scroll down to select a story. Using the remote from my smartphone, I can switch it to a "touchpad" style control in order to click on one of the items on the bottom bar. Please fix this!
