What's New in Version 2.3.3
Bug fix related to content refresh on the Home screen.
Sounds like most people liked the prev version better (I can't compare) but like this app just fine! I like that the articles are short and concise (or maybe just feel shorter and easier to read on my phone). It's easy for me to catch up on some quality new reporting by an amazing group!
Changed are disappointing
First off let me say that the old Al Jazeera app was amazing. You could watch Al Jazeera streaming on your phone or listen to it. I do understand things had to change once the station became available here but so much is lost.
You can't watch any videos or clips now because of your "location". Yet the option still exist, pick one option Al Jazeera.
I'm disappointed that AJ would put out such a sub-par app. the new 'home' menu is horrendous - before, i could see 8+ articles per page. now, i see 2. this isn't refined, it's muddled. slow page loading, inconsistent article text size; you don't need to be flashy to keep reporting good news coverage. i love al-Jazeera, but this is not okay. please fix!
