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.
Solid news app I like the app. Al Jazeera gives me another source of news that is different from other sources such as the New York Times. My only issue and the reason I won't give it 5 stars is that sometimes, for whatever reason, my phone will start playing a video and I will hear the reporter talking from Al Jazeera in my pocket. I then have to go into my phone and close all applications to get the noise to stop. I don't understand this bug.
Needs just a little customization Hi, I'd like to rate it 5 stars, because you do well, but this App needs improvement before it's 5 stars. 3 things - 1) don't auto-download stories (phone bandwidth), 2) a "show notifications" toggle button, because right now, it forces notifications, and 3) a "send usage" toggle button, because I assume you take diagnostics, which should be optional. Love the app, but I can't keep it.
Al Jazeera Better than other major news outlets. Stop supporting isreal and save palestine, the United States gives more aid to isreal than any other country with nothing in return, but Palestinian Genocide. Boycott Estes Lauder as they contribute to Benny's genocide.
Constantly refuses to open after a while. I have to go to settings>apps>aljazeera and clear cache, clear data, and force stop then start it up again for me to be able to use it. Then I have to go through the sign in process again. It's annoying, which sucks because I love this app. Hopefully it gets fixed in a future update at which point I'll readjust my rating.
