Stop refreshing!

I open the app and go to read a story - but then the layout changes and all the stories disappear, replaced with new stories. Why auto-refresh? I wasn't done with the old stories.

interface is easy to use and well divided between live/stream, headlines and other regional sections. I would like the special report pieces to better organized under the spotlight section , i.e Witness as one subsection. And when new spotlight pieces are made, to have links on the main AJ page.

Very Good

I like Al Jazeera because it gives the real news from a position that is not made to entertain or push an agenda. It coverage tells it like it is. It is more complete and broad then most news programs.

Good international news

I really enjoy this app and the information it provides, but wish it was easier to share news articles.

Layout needs work

I enjoy the access to all the information. However, the layout could be much more user friendly and visually appealing.

HATE IT! The display does not refresh--continues to show news from 12/31/2014-- the day I installed the app. Even if I refresh by clicking "Latest News" the main display reverts back to 12/31/2014

Wish it was better

Maybe it's my computer but when I try to watch the Live feed it jumps between stories. The audio also gets messed up and is not for the appropriate story. I've tried this on multiple networks and internet connections to no avail.

Poor video quality

The watch live video quality is super low. I can watch Netflix, Hulu, Youtube with no problems. But this loads with very low quality, and re-buffers all the time.

Totally Worthless

App does not update. No good unless you want to read last month's news over and over again.
