Al Jazeera, in an attempt to make new forays into news and new media has released applications for Android and BlackBerry platforms. The biggest feature in these applications is the ability to send pictures and video to Al Jazeera via the app itself. While this feature already exists in some American news media apps, it's particularly helpful for a publication like Al Jazeera with all the turmoil that's been taking place in the Middle East.
