Love the presentation, but... The app uses an absurd amount of background data on my phone. About a ten to one ratio, even after notifications were turned off. I had to restrict its background data usage in settings, but it single-handedly took a solid chunk of my data allotment this month. I've never done anything but occasionally read an article.

adam holbert

Great news service. ( not fox news ) To get another view on a news story out side of the American Standard. News service like BBC broadcast.

Jovanny A Rodriguez

App to SDcard... Please add the ability to be able to move the App to the SDcard. Thank you...

Betty Johnson

Won't open 99% of the time. Uninstalled app. Reinstalled app 2 weeks later and still having same problem. Hope you fix the bugs. I like AJ.

Nancy Davis

Can not read full article I have been addicted to this app since I first downloaded it. However, since the last update, there is no way to finish reading the articles unless I bookmark the article to "messages" and re-load it from there. Please fix and you will be back to 5 stars for me.

Asif Saeed

Needs fixed App freezes up all the time. Can not read full article because for some reason you can't move forward after a certain point which is extremely annoying.

Viju Mathews

Which idiot developed this?? Stupid app does not open. Some gay guy developed this?

Renee McTeer

If I could give a ZERO rating I would. Besides the app not providing breaking news alerts at all, I am disturbed & concerned that AJAM is turning into a corporate run mouthpiece like Fox, CNN, ABC, Tribune, etc. Example: The "Inside Story" segment on US election funding; Host, Ray Suarez, let the "libertarian-conservative" guest control & dominate the debate without any action by Mr. Suarez to correct the guests inaccurate statements. Shame on you AJAM for not employing informed journalist. I am uninstalling the app and turning Al Jazeera OFF!

Jan Mahler

Confusing ux I get what the ux folks are trying to do with navigation, but the interaction doesn't feel natural or normal. The news content is top notch, of course.

Sherwin Willis

Lg optimus f60 Beautiful, just larger text for us older people with bad eyes thanks

Jim McWilliams

Exactly What I Need... News I need to know. News I wish I could ignore but shouldn't. All in depth, straight forward, no punches pulled. A news service seemingly unswayed by its advertisers. America needs this kind of reporting. Thank you AJAM.

Asad Ullah

Clean App Very nice gui design. Kudos to the developers

Albert Nakao

Good app, can't read end of articles If I could scroll all the way I'd have no complaints. Hopefully its updated soon, otherwise great app.

Henry Good

The best news coverage! Great coverage of all-around news!

S. Hana

Informative One of the best news outlet out there. In depth analysis of current events.

Maryam Fathy

my favorite news channel It's the best news app anyone could get. The channel is even greater. I recommend the channel and the app if you care about finding the truth.

Charles Johnston

Great app with problems I really enjoy this app for a different take on news but it regularly crashes and doesn't always open.

jacob burnett

Wont launch Previous version worked well but not this one

Ryan Anney Baldwin

Real News Not politically based opinions. Everyone should check them out.

Joe deRochemont

Not worth the time it takes to install it. I tested for you, do not bother

Sean Reany

Great news Widget doesn't load properly whenever my phone restarts. Have to remove it and add it again.

Hasan Matar

Engineer Just got this program

Mathy Willy

The AL Jazeera news The best of its kind.World class information sources.

James Williams

Constantly freezes when started.

Matt Lawson

Worst! Fabricated News bad app App has odd hidden icons with no list view so you are force fed the sanitized America version. Rubbish. The original app is not available in USA. Also no video if you don't have a cable provider.

Craig M

Bleeding heart liberalism Nice functioning app, too bad it serves up news catered to hard-core liberals.

Mandela Carter

Nice but needs tweaking Social media sharing is a must! Some users need to share stories via multiple social media platforms. Pls update this capability as it currently has problems working with Facebook!

Raymond Tripp

One of the best Great for quick look at top stories and the behind the news swipe option is much appreciated. Visually appealing and easy to use.

Erik LePage

Very sleek app, but ... Lacking a list view makes it almost useless for most. If they just add a list view by swiping right, it would be 5 stars ...

Mellissa lorton

Works great! Got new HTC ONE M8, reinstalled app. Now it works as it should.

Michael Petik

Works sometimes I like the app - when it works. But half the time, I get a black screen which I can't back out of, and then it asks if I want to close the app. Please fix this.

Evan Delahanty

Needs a scroll bar I want to know how long an article is when I start it. Is it a quick read or not?

Jon Baum

Design is absolutely gorgeous Only issue is the behind the story panel which just 'pops' out after a given swipe distance

Mark Clark

Definitely the best source for international news, great interface!

Colleen Khokhar

NO FREE SPEECH Al Jazeera does not allow free speech on facebook. If one comments on a topic they will restrict comments. This is America Al Jazeera. We say what we want as long as it does not hurt others. I did not say anything hateful nor racist. They simply do not like anytging that does not agree with thier articles. Too bad.

John Hernandez

Slick presentation Had to restrict background data because this app will abuse that privilege, but other than that, I really do appreciate the app.

Ethan Roof

Presentation The graphics are very ugly, and has many glitches, very unprofessional. Never get this app.

Jovanny A Rodriguez

App to SDcard. Please add the ability to be able to move the App to the SDcard. Thank you.

Taylor Schmidt

Absurd background data As others have noted, this app uses an absurd amount of background data. Excellent app but you can't expect to get good reviews when you steal around half a gigabyte per month of background data without any kind of warning to your users

Kyle Roush

Good app, too much background data Ridiculous use of background data. Please fix this. Uninstalling.

Lindsey Frawley

Uses too much background data Early yesterday I received a warning from Verizon that I had used 75% (3GB) of my data for the month; which I almost never do. By the end of that same day I received another warning that I had used all 4GB for the month. Going into the data usage settings I found this app had used 1.6GB.. That's insane. I've now restricted it to only update over wifi but my billing cycle isn't up for another ten days. Now I either have to pay for more data or go without for quite some time. Love the app otherwise.

Trevor Hook

Using way, way too much background data In two days, this app used 1.5 gigs. I love the app otherwise, but I have to uninstall

Ethan McGarry

Great news. Sleek app. App works well, can load a little slow sometimes. But other than that is intuitive. Can't go wrong with AJ

Harris Nasution

Continuous Background Data Exchange Content is great as always. But why does the app constantly do background update, making me wonder if there's anything else beyond news that's being exchanged? Besides, it's always on top of the list of culprits when I try to identify battery drainer. Shame!!!

saad sidi

Great channel Is my favor channel compare to CNN and MBC news

Alvester Garnett

Excellent news reports on a huge data hog app In one week's time I opened this app only once briefly on my newly reformatted phone. In that time this app consumed 7.79 GIGABYTES of BACKGROUND data. In that same time my settings show this app consumed 2.2 Megabytes of foreground data. Al Jazzeera has some of the finest reporters and writers in journalism but apparently their software coders are terrible. Even though I have unlimited data stateside and internationally I'm uninstalling. This can't be good for my phone's battery.

Jordan Schulz

Battery life This application consistently uses more of my battery then any other app, and it is all in the background. Something is seriously wrong; switching to subscribing through Google Newsstand.

Rick Reichert

Great content; mobile data vampire How could this app drain 265 M of data in two weeks? Without even using it?

Adnan Khalid

Consumes excessive amount of background data. Makes you wonder what is doing.

George Jackson

Alight the news Alex and the rest of the game they gives true news that used to be on CNN love them great news Al Jazeera America news that I love


Widget stability issues

alonzo Thomas

Sharing I am unable to share articles via Twitter.

Caryl Disnute

Awesome REAL News I'm Interested In! Got so tired of fluff pcs in news.. I want real investigative news & real ppl stories & news from around the World! This has it ALL! I also ♡ the anchorpersons! Great Job all @ Al Jazeera America! Update: Just when I found real news, now it will close shop in April!

Carl Doerr

Al Jazeera America I read today that Al Jezeera America is going off the air by April 30th. I hope this is wrong. It is the best source for new on cable. I'm a news hound, but in todays market place, news that's not part of the corporate feed is little or dose not exsist. Please support and or encourage their sponsors to slow or stop this clousure.. It truly is a great news feed that us the citizens of the U.S.. need and deserve.

Ernest Navarro

Great, unbiased journalism.. But .. It saddens me that they are being 8 forced out of business here in the United States of America. Information is power, and there's people out there working hard to keep it from the public. Godspeed Al Jazeera America

Priscilla Alexander

Thinker Great alternative to U.S.-centric media.

Carlos Perez

World news report. Very detail of news around the world.

Ramesh Gundapaneni

Delightfully great!! Excellent change from landscape to portrait mode.

Jose Cruz

Great Aljaseera America, the best in news around the world, Better than CNN, CNBC, This is my Favorite News.-

Haroon Zaz

Nice app and unbiased news coverage

Eric T

Don't like the new update I preferred the single story per page format, swiping up for each story. Now it scrolls like a website. No good.

Pat Thrasher

Text is not loading The new update has a much better format than before but now the text for at least half of the articles is not loading...

Asif Saeed

Need better editing Please learn which flag belongs to which country. Stop using Pakistani flag with Saudi news.

Jamie Weleber

Insightful reporting but new update a step back Bring back the flip photos!

Kawshik Ahmed

Please add support for Android TV devices like Nexus Player.

Caro Lina

Most reliable source of Information!

Donald Benoit

Format Not good for tablets because there is no landscape mode.


Improved greatly!

Albert Kreps

Why do I have to go to Al Jazeera to get decent reporting of today's events? Why does Yoohoo put up advertisements disguised as news articles? And then they have the audacity to censor the comments they have solicited from me.

Tim Stackhouse

Great news, and top notch reporting, though the latest update removed the swipe from the right to access the behind the story feature, which I use regularly. The button is still there, but more awkward to use.

Colten Angelo-Burnett

Wish it was more left leaning. But I understand that balanced perspectives are important in news Great app. Runs smoothly. User friendly, like extremely user-friendly. Whoever created this app definitely understands how a persons thumbs work lol. I really like the 'behind the story' thing because its like a quick summary of the whole story. I don't quite understand how to look up different categories yet but. I only just downloaded it and have spent most my time reading articles lol. Very in-depth unpersonalized. WHAT EDUCATED WELL INFORMED PEOPLE WANT IN NEWS.

AJ Ghimire

Love it Probably the best news app I have ever used. No advertisement, great layout, and great content. Keeps you up to date about the biggest news happening all around the world, and makes reading a news a little bit more enjoyable.

Krishna Patangay

Breaks the mold for all other news apps This news app is full of features easy to read and direct. The photos plus caption make for effective and speedy news briefing in the go.

Nolan Snoeyink

Very good app, very good news What a fantastic all around news app. Very good unbiased reporting in a beautiful and simple to use interface. Makes me want to watch Al Jazeera on TV. Now if only it was in HD...

Jim McWilliams

New Update - AJ is Back! My favorite alternative news source failed to update for a few days. Today I downloaded the latest update and all is well. Even better. Keep it up AJ, Keep it up!


Equal coverage Aljazeera news does a great job covering all stories going on around the world, instead of talking about just a few subjects that other news channels do. Will I be able to watch Aljazeera News live on my mobile phone?

Brian G.

Doesn't work after update Like most, I believe this is (was) the best news app out there. Not just because of the design, which is slick and useful for choosing what stories to follow; but because of the content. AlJ brings back journalism in its purest form. But like most, the app doesn't work after the last update. It opens with no content. Just a blank screen. When it gets back I'll give it 5 stars. LG G2 running lollipop. [EDIT] latest update fixed the issue. Back to 5 stars

Riley S.

Good app but always room for improvement I enjoyed the update however I am disappointed to see you removed the swipe left preview that I had used every time I used the app.

Blank Stairs

Good app, great news source. Overall, it's a good app and a great news source. Like many Americans', who are fed up of the lies, and the corporate "story buying" that takes place here, I began watching/reading sources like AJ (and RT). For some reason,opening the AJ app stops my Podkicker from playing,but that's my only complaint with the app.

Sherri Johnson

Great channel I really love the way the news is delivered and furthermore it allows us to hone in on what is really going on in the world. I'm quite impressed. Not just the app but the TV Network as well

Bill Gaydon

Reminds me of Current TV editorially. Im a consumer of AJE as it provides some important insight to the Middle East and the under-reported world. See little use for a Qatari state owned enterprise spewing forth on American domestic politics/issues. That said, the UI is impecable, outside the fact they offer no live streaming of the TV station ....which 85% of the U.S viewing consumers have no access to without pirating it. Poor business model.

Saad Nisar

Loved it! Unlike today's world news apps that distracts you, The Aljazeera America kept me focused on news that interests me. I just select category and then browse news just by swiping up. Thumbs up!

Vicky Knoop

Preview? What happened to swipe to preview? That was one of the best features I've seen on a news app. Please fix!!!

Nathan Hillman

Woohoo! It works again! Hey! The update worked, and now I can get my news again! Just the way it's supposed to be.

Jim Kerr

Working again! The app is now working! I can't think of a better non-biased app for news.

michael brown

Very solid in depth news This app has greatly improved. I love the in depth fact based coverage. The app is consistent. I really hope AJ takes off in the US.

Steven Vazquez

Good app This app works again after latest update

Ed Reilly

Excellent, fair and balanced, extremely professional.

Jorge Barake

Great Reporting Love the app but love the reporting even more.

Lettea VanEss

Just the News! Actual news. You need this app.

michael brown

Very solid in depth news Great work was done and I am sorry to see AJAM go. I hope some of what made this news source special gets invested in AJ+. America has lost some amazing fact based in depth news. A great loss.

Richard Heinz

So long AJ, we hardly knew ya Sad for the untimely demise of one of the most bias neutral sources of news anywhere. The detail and the breadth of coverage was unparalleled. Only real rival for quality was the BBC.

Dylan C

The bell tolls for thee A magnificent news network that valued all walks of life, shedding light on stories and social issues that are all too often abandoned and neglected by most other major American news outlets. Al Jazeera is not alone in the loss of its American channel, for we all lose when journalism of this standard cannot secure the attention of American readers. Along with bad investment decisions by AJ's HQ, AJAM was a gamble. I will be sure to return to Al Jazeera English, and try out AJ+ now. Thank you AJAM!

Uriah Lahti

Amazing This was great while it lasted, and I can't believe that it ended. It was a great source for the most unbiased news source.

Andrew Clark

Stopped refreshing Even when I refresh the articles arent updateing, I'm still seeing the same ones from over a week ago

Carlos Carlos

Aljazeera Uncensored This is the Best news network I've seen so far. Thank you Aljazeera for bringing to us the goods' and the bads' that makes this our imperfect World. Reality isn't always rosie.

Unknōwn User

RIP Al Jazeera. You were a loved news source.

McCurvey Hastie

Great Run Hopefully we'll reach a point again in America where great journalism trumps sensationalism and AJAM has an opportunity to return.

Call Me Teddy Hankerson

Nice news app Exceptional, informative, and worth the read.


Aljazera America Great news source! Saddens me that it's being discontinued.

Ian Winrow

Best News App I'm dissapointed, sad even that this network is ending. It's honestly the best source for unbiased American news I have found. You'd never find this kind of high quality news on any other American news network. If anyone in power reads this, please reconsider your decision to close down this network, because it really is the best of the best.

alonzo Thomas

RIP How news should be

Mayra Moreno

ALJAZEERA America is awesome I just found out about Al Jazeera America... Why is this canceling. This is amazing place to get unbiased news I wish it wasn't going

Jimmy Worrells Jr

A terrible loss for Americans. I am very sad to lose Al Jazeera America. AJAM has been my primary news source since 2014. Thank you to everyone at Al Jazeera America for allowing us to see how the news is supposed to be presented.


LOVE IT Al Jazeera America is easily among my top 5 favorite News outlets, I hate to see it go... :(

Dorie Koch

I'm very unhappy Time Warner no longer carries this channel. It was THE best and most interesting news channel ever. Hope to see u back soon. I'm glad there is an app.

Caryl Disnute

Great Job all @ Al Jazeera America! Update: Just when I found real news, now it will close shop in April! Update2: I loved this real news station!!! I am so sorry to see it go from my TV. I was so so sick of homogenized dumb down news corporations in this country feed us! Plus, when cnbc got rid of Melissa, I knew I was thru..

Renate Wertheimer

CANCELATION OF YOUR NEWS CHANNEL I will miss your in -depth and special reports and the NEWS FROM your many bureaus which is not found in the American news milieu available. Kudos to your roster of journalists for a job well done! Hope to see you all again soon.......

Jani Cornick

Im sad to see you go (channel 347) its the only place I got my t.v news.

Andrea Sosa

Sad to see you go American AlJazeera Great international news, with no bias and extensive detail...

regina sims

Great way to get the true news It's sad that this news station told the true news. As long as we as Americans let's this continue we will be listening to things that aren't true. Please bring this news back.

john paul

The Best! I'm so glad to still have the app!! It was one of my top 3 outta maybe 200 channels we pay for. The truth is out there, let it be heard.

Justine Shanklin

Happy to get this app,afraid for USA future So sad they re off the air! It has been my source of REAL news since Walter Cronkite went off the air. I trusted Walter,and AL Jezeera for the TRUTH!

Sherry Woodbeck

Miss the channel Happy to have this to fall back on now that the channel is gone

John Hitchner

Very sad day I was taken back when I found out my favorite news source was canceled. No one covered the stories like these guys. This was so very special.

John Howell

I will miss this great app and all the people behind it Was a fantastic way tho get news and info. Nicely done - bravo.

Bobbie jo Alger

Will miss my morning program Only news I watched on tv. So now I miss your voices.

Joseph Yates

It's a wonderful app

Linda Jordan

Love this station Thanks for the app

Jen Watson

So sad to lose America's BEST news source I just recently found AJAM, and was instantly blown away at the fact-based, unbiased news reporting. It is unparalleled and I will be sad to see it go. Thank you for your commitment to honest news reporting around the world.

Sonia Berzunza

Best unbiased network

Brenda Friederich

Huge loss So disappointed by the loss of AJAM.

Michael Thomas Hussey

We are too stupid The USA decided we didn't want to know the truth. I'll be reading online.

Carletta De Lucia Larsen

Love it I would like to know why I cannot watch your channel anymore.

Wesley Randall

Goodbye muckrakers Aj America was great. In a world filled with "click bait" and super biased yellow journalism, AL Jazeera America stood out as an unbiased, honest alternative that brought actual facts and research to the table. It's too bad most people are so divided these days that they just want the news source they agree most with, rather than the news as it is.

Afroz Mohammed

Truth lives here @ AL Jazeera Only Truth we see and read on this app.

Tommy Benton

No updates Nothing since Feb.

Gerard Tanugi

Bias news for brainwashed People. Thanks no thanks

Daniel Wilson

I have love AJ since I first found it! This is by far the best news reporting ever, I remember when CNN first came out it was great too but that was long I was elated when I discovered AJ and devastated when it dropped off my channel line up! I'm grateful for this app and all things related to AJ and hope they remain the same always, this is what the news is supposed to be like not the biased agenda pushing sensationalism you find on every channel these days..keep up the good work AJ, you guys are great!!

Gary Boroyan

Most informatif in depth news analysis.Keep it up

Laura Paola

Update? It will only give me a few opinion articles and only up to March.
