good news, not-so-good app

it goes without saying that al jazeera is a reliable news source, and that hasn't changed. trustworthy, timely, and comprehensive. also gives good context/background info on events without being overwhelming OR neglecting nuance, which is cool.

it's just that this app is just kinda frustrating to use for me. it has a black background and white text (basically like "dark mode" in most apps) which can't be changed. at night i like that, but it bothers my eyes when using it during the day. also it just seems like endless scrolling and very few features? i would give it 2 stars, but i decided on 3 because it's AJ and also it's a newer app. maybe it will improve with feedback.

Very disappointed

I found out today that the original Al Jazeera English app is no longer available and so I reluctantly downloaded the new Al Jazeera app, which advertises its new dark mode design. However, this new dark mode is not only default, but it’s the only screen mode. Also, I find that the stories and the programmes are very much cluttered. There is no organisation across this new app and it’s quite frustrating. I like to stream “Inside Story” and when I type the title of the programme in the search bar, nothing appears. On the original app, you could tap the “watch” tab and scroll through every programme Al Jazeera offered and even read descriptions of each installment. I hope this is fixed in a future update because it makes for a frustrating experience.

Great news whack app

Al Jazeera is the only news source I can rely on for facts and straight forward world news. Their programs and dialogues are also great for gaining insight on different events and opinions on controversial topics. I just don’t think the app does this news source service. It’s unorganized and slow. Takes too long to load upon startup and the articles just slide from one to the next and gets confusing.
