Al Jazeera is one of the biggest news media sources for a massive portion of the world. Many other companies have their app for various mobile platforms so that people can stay up to date on all of their releases, but Al Jazeera had been left behind on Windows Phone. Luckily, if you’re an Al Jazeera fan and a Windows Phone owner, your day has finally arrived.
Al Jazeera made their mark by being the first English language news media source to broadcast from the Middle East. Several years ago when the US was entering the Middle East this made Al Jazeera a household term. Nowadays, this all day media broadcaster is one of the main media outlets for over 100 countries and is seen on six continents.
Not only is Al Jazeera a very well rounded and concise but accurate news outlet, but the app that they have for Windows Phone is very well built. The interface feels natural and smooth and the content sits well on the screen. It also has breakdowns for various places and types of content so that you can browse in exactly the way you want and get the experience with your news that fits you. There is the conventional news article content, video clips, live broadcast, pictures gallery, and of course a search feature. Another great tool to keep the news source as up to date and relevant as possible is the option for a news submission secton. This allows people with this app to send in their news stories and hints as they break.
This is not only a great news app in general, but for those who are English speaking in the Middle East it is probably the best news source available. Don’t wait any longer to get your hands on this one.
