"From the Middle East to the globe"

Reviewed by / Mar 25, 2014

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.

    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.
