Pretty smooth Android TV app! Love the auto play and watch live feature on the home screen, simple and to the point
This app is fatally flawed. NO LIVE STREAMING. Those who want Live Streaming in HD instead download "Jazeera World" here in the store...(U.S users will still find it geo-blocked, thus need a vpn).Why is the USA still geoblocked...AJAM is dead!!! Not as flashy but far more functional. Shame the Devs of official app dont seem to listen to feedback
One awfully expensive flaw Great app, or so I thought. However this app spontaneously starts streaming Al Jazeeera, even whilst the app's not open. Happened to me a couple of times - not a problem if you're on WiFi but if the volume's off and you're on data it is a very expensive and battery draining flaw - and you're completely oblivious to it until your data warning pops up. Now I'm out of data and terribly annoyed.
No settings option and bad sharing No 'open with internet browser' option for the articles. Sharing the article is quite buggy and sometimes the wrong article is shared. Copying text to clipboard from the article and pasting it as a caption also crashes the app. No settings option to disable notifications. Will uninstall till better updates. HTC one
Am I missing something? I like the content, but some of the listed features don't seem to be in the app. As soon as I can find them, my rating will improve. When Press TV bests you in the operation dept., It's not good.
About the app: The layout of the articles on the home page lacks chronology or categorisation. Ofttimes, the articles load a little slower than desired. No ads makes for a smooth experience. No problems with streaming. About the news: The coverage is remarkable; the content is wonderful. I expect nothing less from Al Jazeera English.
