Interesting news channel, disappointing app

Bad hobbit

I started reading Al Jazeera news several months ago, and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the journalism & the range and perspective of the stories covered. However, I find the app very limited, with quite basic things not working in anything like an intuitive way. I can't find a way to save interesting stories to read later, so many of the things I wanted to read have disappeared. Hitting the menu button takes you to a pretty useless screen with no obvious way back to the story you were reading. A potentially fascinating interview, published just yesterday, with Jimmy Wales about combating fake news has just disappeared & I can't find it again.

So guys, please keep up the standard of content but get a better app to present & organise it.

Raw facts & adequate features


Al Jazeera is no like other media presenters- it presents unaltered news and evidences in a bold and brave way. And the app itself is fantastic- with sufficient features and easy organisation, it helps people to be up-to-date with the global news and essential discussions, with an ease.

News that matters


The best channel and organisation for actual news
Not ‘western’ biased, not entertainment or sports heavy.

2 people getting killed by a mad shooter in US is not more priority then 100 Afghan schoolchildren getting massacred by a helicopter, backed by the US.

Western news are under the control of entertainment tycoons.

It would be great if AJ could do a ‘headlines’ feature like the Reuters Apple TV
