I suppose the regular app was better than this one for tablets. This layout seems a bit clunky, and I haven't figured how to play a video since I switched. Going back to the other all Jazeera English app, as it has a more fluid interface which is tons easier to use.
Lacking share support The reading of articles is close to flawless, but the app breaks down once I want to share an article with anyone. This application fails to implement androids built in sharing features, forcing users to only share articles with a Facebook or Twitter account that you have linked with the application. This is also a flawed process as the Twitter account linking asks for more permissions than is required to share links. I have not checked Facebook as I don't have an active account. Now these issues are very simple to solve just by implementing androids sharing API. Which would also simplify the process for users I would also like to know as to why two separate applications, one for phones, and one for tablets, couldn't you just implement both layouts into a single app and either auto rotate between them or put the option in settings.
Doesn't work I have a Sony Xperia Miro and this Al Jazeera app has never worked on my phone - disappointing because it would be good to be able to keep up with the news in this way.
Used to be a Great News App Other media outlets should study this app, it is that well done. The live audio and video streams work perfectly on my 2+ year old tablet. Al Jazeera is second to none in its mid-East coverage. While our political leaders tune in to Al Jazeera to stay abreast of breaking news, they are black listed by the cable companies. Highly recommend this app for both its form and function as well as content. Update: Removed streaming for US... One star. One can only assume that editorial stance is targeted by region, that is not news that is propaganda.
Unreliable :( I love Al Jazeera's content, but this app's live streaming is hopelessly unreliable. It never works for more than 5 minutes without disconnecting. What a shame.
Its works so perfectly on my xperia tablet S, wonderful stream Nice quality pictures awesome and really clear sounds.... morealso its so easy to control Am Just loving it, its verily a nice app on my tablet... its really best for tablets
