Great international coverage

You all do a great job keeping up with stories of international interest, providing interesting and fresh analysis and opinions. There are very few low-quality/grabber articles in comparison to other big news outlets. There is quite a lot of wasted space, the videos never play for me, and the live tile won't update stories (after days even) unless I open the app; otherwise I would offer 5-stars.

I have loved this news reporting syndicate

Since its beginning, I have love the reporting of the news from this source. Hands down, it was refreshing, the perspective raw, and informative. Its a wonderful addition to the traditional outlets.l

this is a good app to add to the picture. other sources are good but Al Jazeera is good to complete the news and views.

Excellent News Service

Almost on par with the BBC for world information not normally found in American outlets. The only problem I've experienced is in wanting to leave a comment to an article. Al Jazeera requires more information than I feel comfortable giving to comment. A simple log in on to a Al Jazeera account would be a lot simpler.

small text -unable to adjust text size

pros: covers a wide spectrum of news. cons: text is too small for me to read. there should be a setting for a choice in text size.

I use it every day!

I love getting my news from Al Jazeera because it helps me keep up to date on a lot of issues and countries that aren't typically covered on standard US news sites. My one complaint would be the format. The text is pretty small and there is no way to zoom in.

Good but...

Headlines are in a black font which doesn't read very well against the photos.

I like having access to Al Jazeera as they provide news I don't see anywhere else with a different perspective than what is found in 'main stream news' in the US.
