    Nice app. But takes a long time to load. Live tiles aunt working either. An update is long overdue.😐

    This app kicks *** and yet all the market is the apple and android app. Pandering to those people seems to be the only thing anyone does anymore even though we know those users practically dont even use their phones.

    I really like al jazeera but this app doesn't work right anymore. I have to contently uninstall and install it to get it to work. Once installed it works for a while the I get an error like "no response from server" but like I said if I uninstall and reinstall it works, problem is I don't want to do that anymore.
