Review from Miroslav Georgiev
The app has a serious bug which needs to be addressed. I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this but whenever I try to share an article via WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger or any other sharing platform, the Al Jazeera English app crashes, with two options appearing: Open the app again or provide feedback. When I try to share again, the app crashes again. This time, the options slightly change: Close the app or provide feedback. If this particularly nasty bug did not exist, I would give the app a higher rating.
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
At first it seemed good but now every news story I tap takes me to the same clip about a cricketer who died. Something ain't working which is disappointing as Al-Jazeera is a good channel for global news. Hope you can update this App soon cos I value the wider perspective you provide. I have even tried uninstalling and re-installing without success.
I really like the news reports and the depth of your research. But unfortunately the app isn't working properly. I use it daily and I will continue to use it, but it doesn't work like it's supposed to. It's a minor inconvenience, but I would really appreciate it if you could make it work as supposed to. Keep up the fantastic job of reporting the news. You are second to none.
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.

I have followed AJ regularly, and really love their documentaries etc. They are a great source of knowledge. The app however, even though it delivers good news, is not upto the mark. The app, once I open it, keeps playing live news, even after I have shut the app or the phone. Also when I try to share news through WhatsApp, the app crashes.
