What's New in Version 2.3.4
- Minor bug fixes and enhancements
Can't watch live steam from the US?!! I got this app when streaming from the US was available. I loved it. It was the best app had. The older version was amazing. Why change it?! I am giving this app one star for the sole reason of the live streaming being taken away from the app and website!!! How come I can stream Al-Jazeera Arabic all the way from the Middle East and streaming is not available from the UK?! It makes no sense. The whole reason I downloaded the app in the first place was so that I could stream the channel. Please add streaming from the US! Al-Jazeera America is ok compared to Al-Jazeera English. I liked Al-Jazeera English much better. I watch Al-Jazeera America regularly, but have always enjoyed being able to watch Al-Jazeera English (in fact I started watching Al-Jazeera English first and still prefer it). I enjoyed watching it to get a European perspective. Please provide live streaming to the US again!! Us Americans are starving for REAL news. If live streaming is not reintroduced I will delete the app, just like I did the Al-Jazeera America app (no point in having that one either since their is no live streaming). The whole reason I downloaded the app in the first place was so I could I stream the the channel. If streaming continues to not be allowed from my location their is no point in the app taking up valuable memory on my smart phone.
Says I'm not on the internet!
Update May 24, 2015:
Maybe there is something behind Al Jazeera's refusal to live-stream its content in the U.S. Guess how many billion dollars of military hardware Qatar buys from the U.S. military-industrial complex.
Meanwhile, RT, one of the few alternatives to Al Jazeera, is plagued with bugs: infuriatingly frequent crashes and buffering delays. Now, I don't believe in conspiracy theories, but...
Update March 3, 2015:
It's still lousy: when I click on live streaming I get this message: "Content not available from your location."
Well, I'm in Florida; I wonder just what "location" I should go to in order to watch Al Jazeera English on my iPhone; maybe I should go to Qatar, where the studios are located.
Al Jazeera America is still rubbish, too: just articles gleaned from elsewhere on the internet.
Zero stars before and zero stars now. Completely worthless!
Something is wrong with this app: when I try to access the content, a message says that I'm not on the internet! I can't access any content at all.
Then I downloaded the Aljazeera America app, but it's not worth the trouble; it's just a bunch of articles that you can access on lots of news aggregators elsewhere from Yahoo News to Business Insider to Flipboard: no original content, no streaming either audio or video. Don't waste your time.
Needs an update
All of a sudden my news isn't updating on other news sections, such as in 'Central & South Asia.' It was working fine about a week or so ago.
Another thing is that for us U.S. folks, we can't watch videos/watch live without connecting to a VPN. For those interested, you can download TunnelBear and your problem will be solved. Although, it would be best if we didn't have to do this every time we wanted to watch something on the app.
Regardless, I still give it 5/5 stars because Al Jazeera is still better than American news.
