Can't mute audio App plays audio in background when opened which cannot be muted. Also text is hard to read. Bad choice of font (a serif font is better for long reads), the formatting of content is inconsistent and doesn't always display correctly
For the most part a great app, especially like the live news option. This is where a serious flaw lies. Sometines while browsing written news stories the live news will automatically begin to play. Twice bow it has continued playing even when i clear all my apps from my quick jump menu! I was on data and it used half of my monthly data before I realized that the stream was playing (my volume was almost zero). This is ridiculous and needs to be fixed immediately, Iam inable to use this app outside of a wifi zone for risk of using all my data without wanting to! - LG G3
Why is it so hard to bring live. You guys don't have al Jazeera America any more, so why can't you get live in America. There is literally no problem in doing it. You guys are so good and I can't watch aj any more. With every update you don't bring live. Stop geo blocking America and start just letting us watch actually good news with high quality journalism and know corporate influence.
4 out 5 and I'll tell you why. Get the developers to implement scrollable widget, Google now integration and breaking news notification.
Informative Aljazeera English number one channel in our planet it's independent, informative, balanced, reliable, entertainment, the voice for voiceless,diversity, accurate... I really appreciate journalism in this channel I recommend everyone to use this precious application 👍
Fantastic app. Initially I didn't use it often because I was chasing a more 'latest news' type app. Which it is not. Al Jazeera is of course an excellent news provider and after reading a few articles here and there it quickly became my favourite app. Great articles, written by some very talented journalists. Offering interesting perspectives on a whole range of current world topics. Also, live news stream is very handy. Highly recommended.
