35 New Android Apps for 2011

Al Jazeera in English

Cost: Free

While Middle Eastern news network Al Jazeera already has a live streaming app available for Android, the new app includes all of the content available on its Web site in English.

The app's interface is clean and uncluttered with all of its categories ("news," "opinion," "features," "video," etc.) divided into different blocks. You can also click on the top of the app to see a live video news stream.

In addition, the Al Jazeera app encourages its users to engage in citizen journalism and send in footage from the smartphone's camera through its "your media" function.

But while we found the app easy to use, there were several faults with it. While the Al Jazeera app offers video, users are asked if they want to watch in a mobile browser or YouTube -- there is no native video streaming infrastructure within the app.

The app also doesn't offer the ability to share stories through Facebook or Twitter -- although its mobile web version does.
