Best news app on the Play Store Al Jazeera provides detailed, unbiased, objective reporting from all around the world about stories that are of actual significance. The only reason I haven't rated the app 5 stars is because often, on an almost hourly basis, the app will start playing the Live TV feed in the background, even when the app is closed. Often when I'm listening to music, the music will pause because Al Jazeera has randomly started playing over the top of it. This is a really strange bug and I desperately hope it gets fixed this time. Other than that, great reporting guys!
Your content is great and very clear. I just love you guy. News as it really is no spin. Honestly. Keep up the good work. I wish you were still on tv. It would have been clear to watch just facts on the us elections. Mabe you will come back to the US market some day before we in the US destroy our country. Thanks William
Turn off background data in settings So I downloaded the app as it gives a different perspective to other news apps. Had a shock however when it used all my data overnight because I hadn't turned background data off in the app. None of my other apps have even come close to using the same data in a month let alone overnight. Very very poor. Going to have to buy extra data now to use for the rest of the month.
Great News App - 1 Big Bug Sometimes app starts playing audio/video? without being asked, and then again after the app is closed. Have to close it, open it again and close it again to make it stop playing back as the source is not apparent or even, by my best reckoning, even activated. Since I work in quiet environs sometimes, this is a deal breaker for me. Otherwise, the app is functionally all that I could ever ask for.
Better than my rating. I like their different POV and global range, and their notifications are pretty good. My problem is that when i click on a notification, it hardly ever loads the story - - then if I close it and reopen the app itself, it will say X many notifications in my feed but when I click on that, there's nothing. Obviously I haven't set it up right. :-(
New update. Still won't load without the "something went wrong, try again" error. You really need to hire some programmers who have a clue what they're doing. Evidence is resounding that your current developers are not capable of building this app.
