Al Jazeera English official app
Al Jazeera is the first international English-language news channel to broadcast across the globe from the Middle East. Al Jazeera has a global approach and broadcast all around the world.
In fact, you can live broadcast both Al Jazeera TV and radio channels right from this app. There's more though: Al Jazeera English app also features constantly up-to-date global stories divided by categories. Opinion, weather, blogs, sport, media archive... You name it. Tons of sources that will keep you in the loop 24/7.
If you are subjected to data plan restrictions you can download articles while over WiFi for later offline reading.
One of the added-value features of the app is that you can submit contributions. In other words, report news and send your media to Al Jazeera.
Although the amount of articles, media, sources and updating rhythm is indisputable, Al Jazeera English app's interface needs a revamping. Article's font is too small and can't be adjusted from settings. In addition, it doesn't run as smoothly as one may expect.
Regardless, Al Jazeera English is an excellent source if you are a News-junkie.
The 24-hour news and current affairs channel is the first international English-language news channel to broadcast across the globe from the Middle East.
Al Jazeera's global footprint continues to grow and now broadcasts to more than 220 million households on six continents in more than 100 countries.

Its what I go to if I want to know international news. No 5 star because I cant view videos from my country
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.
Like the new layout.
Very slow to update other news.
