Al Jazeera launched a new application compatible with the website content

Doha: Al Jazeera has launched a new app for smartphones and tablets which is compatible with the Network’s website content.

This app leverages GraphQL to converge the content from our newsroom’s into a single application – The Digital Voices of the Network – by utilizing a unified Content Management System (uCMS).

“Al Jazeera is committed to putting people at the centre of its editorial priorities by empowering its journalists to focus on the human story. I am excited to see this groundbreaking new mobile app come to light and provide the innovative experience and enable audiences to get the unique perspectives from across our digital newsrooms.” said David ‘Hos’ Hostetter, Digital’s Chief Technical Officer.

This is a one-stop application for Al Jazeera Media Network, aggregating content from our multiple platforms, including Al Jazeera Arabic, English, Mubasher, Balkans, and Chinese, as well as providing live broadcasts.

“This application employs an elegantly simple and novel approach, providing Al Jazeera with a world-class application that we can build on in the future. Leveraging our experience working with some of the best companies in the world around design like Apple and Google – the design paradigms really embrace this concept of ‘Less is More,’ influencing our approach to this application. The technical architecture also means we only support one app leveraging React Native across all platforms improving our overall efficiency, performance, and quality.” said Paul Ingalls, Vice President of Engineering
