    One of the best designed windows phone apps.

    Its a decent app.. the live tiles keep showing old news, and the lockscreen could have been better, good to see these functionalities are at least there unlike most others. Was craving for a good Aljazeera app but this is not it- an update is long overdue.

    This is the best looking news app I have. Works great and the news coverage is very well done.

    Great content but many stories don't open, just an ingress. Frustrating! That makes it unusable for me. Hope it gets fixed soon.

    Won't play video in my current location? Well okay, uninstall.

    Live stream is amazing. However, the volume of the stream is really low in general and specially when sending the audio via Bluetooth, even with the phone and the Bluetooth receiver volumes maxed out. I don't run into this issue with other apps.
