12/11/2013Good news app but crashes on start screen
27/10/2013Where is the new version? The current version in market is 1.0
21/10/2013Great news service but the app freezes on launch too often.
06/10/2013Absolutely superb. However, volume on the live stream video is entirely too low. This isn't an EU regulation-thing, it is barely audible when you've got any background noise. Please fix!
26/09/2013Great app easy to use.
06/09/2013Great app! I especially recommend it to any students studying A-level Government and politics or A-level business, easy to use and a great little app. Really useful insight into todays news
22/08/2013Really good app, the best news app i have found. Easy to use and clear on a mobile screen. Goes for an original layout rather than replicating the web page. Great to customise it to your interests too.
04/08/2013Works so slickly and brilliantly informative, with differing media types and everything else you'll ever need. Fantastic
16/07/2013Finally a great news app on wp8, would be great for breaking news alerts via a toast message and latest news live tile that updates - To add the live tiles swipe to the sections page, go to a category you want on your start screen and tap the three dots at the bottom you will see pin to start it took me a while to figure it out
11/07/2013Great app - really slick. Al Jazeera now up there with the BBC according to various journalism awards, so recommended particularly for coverage of significant world events. How do you get the live tile to work? That's my only gripe.
