Not there yet. Could be better.

Live tile does not refresh automatically, have to open the app for it to refresh. User Interface is "not there yet": A white background with a few articles to tap on? It looks very amateur-ish for a respectable news company. Same goes for their mobile app- Videos will not play on AJ and it prompts you to download AJE which in turn is not as sleek as AJ

Tile updates are bad

Tiles do not show recent updates and the text over the images cannot be seen because of the contrast.

Donald Trump has spoken out about Khizr Khan, the fathe

Excellent article. Hope Hilary Clinton and her team will use it effectively. I read Al Jazeera often and find it interesting. N.Narasimhan

Look at all the fake reviews!

Jerry, Dan, Anthony... Last time I checked, Al Jazeera was an islamist channel shoving halal approved news (often illogical fakes) down their viewers throat- mostly muslims and some less educated liberals. Cant believe they stooped so low as to fake reviews.

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.

Video stream not working. No update for Windows 10?

Not updated for Windows 10. Video stream does not work. Sometimes it crashes on opening. Windows 10 deserves better than this since the user base is over 200million now.
