AJ+ is a global news community for the connected generation. We highlight human struggles and achievements, empower impassioned voices, and challenge the status quo.
It is more than just another news app. It's a community. Putting you at the heart of stories that impact your life.
Our content is broken down and presented in cards:
Video Card: Bite-Size, Shareable and engaging. Video cards aim to empower you with relevant information that contextualizes the world around you. From 6second headlines videos, through to 3min explainers and up to 7min documentaries, videos designed for a generation on the move.
Debate Card: Who doesn’t love a good debate? We know most issues have different viewpoints. These cards allow you to vote on a certain issue, take a stand and advocate your position within the community.
Conversation Card: Tired of trolls? This is the space to dive deeper into issues. We know we don’t have all of the answers (even though we’d like to think we do). A conversation card connects you with a global community to engage and learn from each other.
Quiz Card: Think you know everything? Take a quiz and test your knowledge. Quiz cards introduce a new and fun way to explore stories.
Art Card: Who doesn’t love sharing a good quote or compelling stat? Lucky for you, we love data! The art card is designed to highlight key data points around issues. They’re designed for you to share to your social networks.
Resource Card: Let us Google that for you. We know people spend more time searching for additional info on stories. This card will make your life a bit easier with links to relevant stories, articles and bits of information.
Cards are organized in a collection we like to call stacks. Making it easy for you to dive deeper on topics that matter to you. Stacks never really disappear; they simply get refreshed as the stories rise to relevance.
EMPOWER. ENGAGE. EXPERIENCE.

Mild issues but overall excited
Love keeping up with news from the angle of AJ, definitely much better journalism than the stuff you run into in most of the mainstream US media. The SMS verification is not working for me (various reorts of errors) and it seems like maybe it could have a more interactive homepage or something where you can save bookmarked stories but other than that the app is simple and to the point just like it should be!
Still no audio!!?
I love the content and format but the audio has not worked for months and I cannot find a support link that works. I assumed it would get fixed in an update but no luck - so have to give the app a low rating in spite of the wonderful content.
Great videos but error with app
Why is there no audio for any of the videos? How has this not been fixed? Please fix! This could be a powerful app if it actually worked!!!
