Whilst the app is great for providing news both to read and on the live stream to watch and the channel is one of the best I've found with fair unbiased reporting. That being said the app itself keeps randomly playing audio after the app has been opened and you have to go to the app and most of the time reboot phone to stop stream from appearing again. This has been occurring for over 6 months. Come on AJ time to fix!!! This would be amazing if not for this issue
Please stop letting the app play audio on its own! If I'm playing music simultaneously the apps audio continues to play along with the music. Which means I have to close the app to listen to music or stop music to read the news. And I don't even know where the audios coming from or what it's about. Great app otherwise. Want to use it more if not for this annoyance.
When reading a specific article, in the background there's a totally different video running. I don't whether it's a marketing scam or what but it is distracting and annoying as hell. If you don't make suitable changes for this issue, I'm afraid I'll have to move on to BBC or The Guardian.
Live feed starts playing in background when app starts, annoying. Pressing notifications doesn't work unless app has been fully closed and pressing back from there closes app instead of going to main page, silly. Only reason I keep it is because I have respect for the journalism from them. But seriously, the app needs work.
If you are having the same audio problem as everyone else, you don't need to shut the app down. Just select "Watch" from the side menu and then pause the video. My rating will stay as three stars until this is fixed.
Good news from Al Jazeera and updates etc, but at the moment there's a really annoying bug where presumably audio from the 24 hour tv or radio news just starts playing while I'm doing something completely unrelated, even when the app is exited out of. It really makes it difficult to recommend the app.
