    The top news live tile should flip to show latest headline. The picture slideshow doesn't seem enough for a news app. It's a decent app otherwise.

    Two stars just because there's Aljazeera in the name. No notification, no live tiles, slow as a sloth.. What kinda news app is this. Was craving for a good Aljazeera app but this is def not it- an update is long overdue

    Very polished app, and live streaming works seamlessly. The way it's done it appears to be better than even RT's English app!

    Update has fixed the live stream; love it! If I had to nit-pick, wish we could view news videos.

    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.
