What's New in Version 3.0.1

Greetings, TEDsters! We hope you are having a good summer (or winter if you're on that side of the planet). We just got back from Banff, Canada and TED Summit 2016. We are going to be highlighting some of our favorite talks from Summit over the next few weeks, so be sure to check back daily. To help make your viewing easier, we've got a new release of the TED app for you.

Here's a few of the highlights from this month's release:

* The Popular Talks list should now have more fresh, dynamic content.
* Improved the readability and layout of the Talk Detail screen on the iPad. Your eyes will thank us.
* Fixed crash when turning off subtitles.
* Fixed issue where welcome screen would sometimes not disappear after finishing Inspire Me questionnaire. We were too welcoming apparently.
* Fixed formatting of talk duration on Talk Details screen for Arabic speakers.
* Fixed formatting of of minutes on the Inspire Me clock for Arabic speakers.
* Googlecast related strings should now show up as localized.
* We squashed a few smaller bugs and crashes as we always do.

We'd love to hear from you. If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at

We don't prompt you for a review in the app because we don't want to take away from your time with our speakers. However, if you are enjoying TED for iOS, please take a moment to rate and review us on the App Store. It really helps us out!

Customer Reviews

TED Good, App Not Good

Like many other reviewers have already said: we love TED, but this app does not live up to expectations for TED. Most of my complaints center around downloading content and playing it back. After you download content, tapping that content takes you to the same page you see when visit it without downloading content. If you downloaded audio, the video will still let you play it. So, you may not realize you are streaming video on your data plan because you only downloaded the audio! So confusing! The only way I could ensure I was not using my data plan was to turn off cellular data for the TED App. That aside, I had many problems with downloaded video and audio suddenly stopping during playback and not resuming, so I had to close the content, reopen, and try to figure out where it dropped off. So frustrating! Those are the biggest issues, but they are big ones if you want to use the downloads feature. You're probably better off listening to the TED radio hour podcast than trying to figure out this app. Sorry TED

Great, but has flaws

The app is overall great, but the problem I've had recently is that the same talks have been on the "Featured" pane for weeks. They used to update almost daily. Also, sometimes the video freezes on my iPhone and I have to restart. Finally, I have bookmarked dozens of great talks, but it would be nice to have the ability to personally rate them so I can find the ones that most affected me quickly.

Hooked on first listen\look

TED Talks deserves 10 stars. I've watched it for years. I've taken notes on programs for my own research, shared programs, and recommended TED Talks to many people over the years. This is a treasure trove of good ideas and wonderful stories. This program lives up to its by-line, "Ideas worth spreading." I love this program! So many good programs here – now available as a podcast!
