Positive review Great but could be better. by anonym
Hands down one of the best sources for news, the app could use some improvements, chiefly the ability to share news via other apps like whatassp and Gmail. 4/5
Negative review Good content 24 hrs behind though ! by anonym
King Abdullah passed away 01.00 am. It is now 14.00 pm yet this info is not available on this app. Why ??? News should be updated at least every hour 1/5
Positive review Excellent! by anonym
Work just fine on Galaxy S4. Don't know what the haters use, but it's fast and smooth perfection. Just like their unbiased TV coverage. Just available to me anywhere I go. Keep up the quality work! 5/5
Negative review Great design without push notifications by anonym
Why there is no push notifications though I have enabled it while installation? 2/5
Negative review Meh by anonym
App works fine. But.... For some reason over the past week, none of the videos are available in my region. 2/5
Positive review Great news service, great app! by anonym
Love the option to download news, as well as watching and listening live. Well crafted and usable application. The carte blanche access to all content is a by far the best feature. Do not change this philosophy. 5/5
Negative review by anonym
Al Jazeera and BBC have aways been my favorite resources for international news. I like the app however the live video and audio don't work. Both are "not available in my location". I hope this would be fixed soon. Otherwise, great content! 2/5
Positive review Best NEWS channel by anonym
Since i'am going to College so i will have no T.V. to watch Aljazeera so this app will keep me updated to latest affairs. ?? it 5/5
Neutral review Great but...... by anonym
I like aljazeera content.they don't glamorize stories but there is almost no stories about qatar and gulf countries and their wrong doings which I believe is not true to the principles of journalism 3/5
Positive review Great app by anonym
I think there should be more Asian and middle east news channels like this 4/5
Positive review Superb and ad-free by anonym
Excellent app, with a easy to understand layout. But needs a fast WiFi or data connection, best of all its ad-free 5/5
Positive review Longinus by anonym
When I watch n listen to news on this station, I see my self travel all over d world in a split second...awesome 5/5
Negative review by anonym
Not good at all after the last update it does not load fully, images don't display and live video streams don't work any more. Showing error message. 1/5
Positive review Great App, Can't Watch Live by anonym
This is a great app, and a great service provided. I only wish the watch live would work, even better with chromecast; I get the message "content not available from your location". 4/5
Neutral review Limited content by anonym
The functionality of the app is good. The biggest disappointment is the dearth of articles. The article quality is good, just not enough articles to have me reading regularly like BBC does. 3/5
Negative review Major Flaws by anonym
2 problems that essentially cripple this for me: I can't get the screen to auto rotate and I am unable to use the "finger pinch" to enlarge the text. Fix those and I would give this 5 stars! As it stands, though, I can't really use this app. 2/5
Negative review No streaming for US by anonym
Can only assume editorial leanings are targeted by region. That is not how news should work, but it is exactly how propaganda works. 1/5
Negative review Poor upgrade -revert to the Past by anonym
This new version is disappointing.I have use AL J as my #1 news source but with this clutter I will move on.This exercise in scrolling verses the old page of news to select is so poor. 1/5
Positive review Good content; works fine by anonym
Lots of actual news and less useless commentary make Aljazeera a top source for news. I don't like the really big pictures on the top screen - this seems to be a fad among news apps and websites lately which I find dumb. I'd rather be able to see more stories listed on the screen, instead of having to use the left side menu for everything. But still, it's pretty good over all. 4/5
Positive review Love by anonym
Love the newly designed app! Much better. Wow. Turned my four star review into a five great job. Best quality news you can get. 5/5
Positive review by anonym
The news as it is. This is what the BBC used to be in the old days. Now it is Al Jazeera where one has to go to see what really is happening around the world. Keep up the good work you all and God bless you for speaking out where everyone else dares not. 5/5
Positive review Can't watch or listen live in my location by anonym
I don't mind that really because, well I can read...all in all looks like a good app for information you don't get from sugar coated American news. If I wanted to know about some famous person and what they did today.....well I don't so who cares. National American news USED to cover real stories and deal with issues, now they tell you who won some stupid dance show or who's dating who. Stupid. Welcome to the dumbing down of America. 4/5
Positive review Great News channel, Great app by anonym
Thanks AlJazerra for reporting truthfully!! It's a shame on the BBC I cannot stand the BBC biased reporting so AlJazeera I salute you!!! And keep up with the good work!!! 5/5
Neutral review Alright by anonym
Its what I go to if I want to know international news. No 5 star because I cant view videos from my country 3/5
Positive review Great by anonym
One of the best world news app, if not the best. 5/5
Aljazeera is one of the three best news channels in the world alongside with RT.It has a very intelligent coverage of world events,making sure to show their reports from the vantage point of every player concerned by the stories it covers.furthermore,if you are tired of propaganda machines like cnn,you will love aljazeera even more for its fairness of reports. 5/5
Neutral review Good website, clunky app by anonym
I use AJE for my fill of daily news via their website and YouTube channel but this app is not on par. Big photos fill up the main page and menu is not satisfactory to searching for news. 3/5
Positive review the best by anonym
compared to gaurdian, huff post, npr and bbc, al jazeera is THE BEST for world news. really nice app, great reporting, more news than anywhere else 5/5
Negative review Terrible Interface by anonym
Difficult to navigate and visually confusing. When I click on headlines, it often fails to take me to the article. I've always appreciated Al Jazeera's reporting, but this app is nearly unusable. 2/5
Positive review 3rd Eye by anonym
Looking good. Need some changes specially in image upload, its takes too time to inter into the site...... 4/5
Positive review I'm a big supporter of Al Jazeera by anonym
Sadly, it was taken off my channel provider. I'm thankful to still have this app to keep me up to date and posted on the Arabic world. I don't watch CNN, Fox or other lame stream garbage news. 5/5
Positive review Great channel great app by anonym
No biases. No propoganda. Its independent , untainted by any political mire and true. All in all it is what a news should be. Well done guyz. 5/5
Negative review No use to me by anonym
None of the features I want to use, (like live broadcast etc... ) are 'available in my area' so it keeps on telling me. So, I can't use any of the features I want, why keep? If I only wanted to READ about it, I'd just google it! Uninstalling what a bummer, i thought it would be like the channel. :-( 2/5
Positive review by anonym
Very cool and good app I recommend it to those that need reliable news 4/5
Negative review GPS location by anonym
On 14th June 2013 I emailed support they said : "This is a bug which has been fixed in the coming release in few days".  Still waiting on it to be fixed. Also, the font is a bit hard to read. No size or font style settings. Where is the back button? 1/5
Positive review After the update I can't share on Facebook. Pls solve by anonym
Superb. Great for latest news. You can also watch the programmes. 5 star. Must have I have seen some people complaining from US. But I have no problem from UK. Everything works fine. Salute to AlJazeera team. 5/5
Negative review A mess by anonym
I love AlJazeera news. This app is unworthy of such a fine source of independant journalism. The video content is what I find most valuable. The video is not available, so whats the use? This updated version only works in the vertical position on my tablet I.e. you can't turn it sideways for a wider view. I'm uninstalling again. Don't bother releasing another version without video. 2/5
Positive review Exceptional by anonym
Live streaming, audio and video, analysis of world political, social and economic situations , can't ask for more. Excellent user interface as well makes it a top notch 5/5
Negative review Crashes on startup by anonym
I LOVE aljazeera but this app crashes on startup after the last update. Reinstalling didnt work. Guess im stuck to viewing it in my browser 2/5
Negative review You stuffed up a great app way to go guys.. by anonym
You took a top scrolling app that was extremely easy to navigate and after the latest update I now have to go into a menu down 2 levels then select what I want.. Do you people even try your own software before releasing it?? Seriously get it fixed or I'll be deleting you app and leaving 1 star rating.. 2/5
