Two distinct issues: the App and the Content. The App is clean and user friendly. It does it's job without unneeded clutter. The content has created a lot of powerful enemies, like Israel and its supporters, Saudi Arabia and its powerful friends, and the US Government, whose actions have consequences many don't feel comfortable seeing reported. The content is often slanted, but the reporting does meet proper standards of journalism as far as being subject to reasonable verification. There is no better source for news about relatively non-controversial events in the Moslem world.
I have been using this app since quite a while but lately i am having problem in opening the app. I am always getting "The operation could not be conpleted. Try again." I tried lot may times on WiFi and 4G but in vain. Please look into the issue.
Good content, poor execution. Breaking news notifications is one of the primary functions of any good news app. In this app, notifications cannot be expanded, so you cannot read the headline. This defeats the purpose of breaking news notifications which is very frustrating. This is a simple fix, so I hope the developers will resolve this soon.
Need to be able to turn notifications off. This is also a mental thing, one needs to be able to stay off the mobile devices, without being pestered by notifications. So, silent hours would be a good option to have too. Good, solid app, strangely ruined by not giving any settings for the user, while practically all the competing apps have them.
Love the content. But 2 issues with the app. From the notification on the lock screen, you can't expand and see the full headline if the article. Also, when you use the share button and send to messenger, it only sends the photograph at the top. Samsung Galaxy S6
I previously had more than 50 news feeds & deleted all. I found Aljazeera to be equal or better than most. For this person it broadened my thinking, seemed to be accurate and unbiased. With the current regional situation I feel Aljazeera deserves support & encouragement.
