What's New

Version 5.4

This release of the TED app is focused on stability and adding support for the new iPad Pro. Here's the full lowdown:

- We now natively support the new iPad Pro models.
- There were a few rendering issues with our new audio player, so we rendered them obsolete!
- The audio player now properly formats the time remaining and elapsed based on your current location.
- We now do a better job of cleaning up after ourselves when you switch subtitle languages.
- There was a comical amount of spacing between action buttons on the content detail screens. Our designers didn't see the humor though, so we fixed it.
- The list of subtitle languages under Settings is now alphabetized by your current location.
- We fixed a few different crashes you reported on iOS 12. If you're still seeing issues, please contact us!

We hope you enjoy the new release. If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at contact@ted.com.

ps. 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!

44% battery used in background, app unresponsive

Using a pretty much brand new 6s. Was wondering why my battery had dropped significantly over night. I noticed the at the TED app, which I haven’t used a single time since I have this new phone, has used up most of it without asking. Was wondering what it did so I checked data usage, has only 500mb stored. Opened the app to check downloaded videos, videos aren’t downloaded. Then the app became completely unresponsive and froze the whole phone to an extent which I haven’t seen before. Neither home button worked nor lock button not app switcher. The phone got a tad warmer and dropped 7% battery. Within a minute the phone caught up all the actions that were requested while frozen and I was finally able to kill the app and delete it. Happy to provide error logs for you guys, chuck me an email and I’ll send them over. The app, if it works is good and the whole concept of TED is great unquestionably.
Cheers

This is concerning - we haven't seen this before but if you're willing to send error logs, it would be much appreciated and we'll definitely investigate. Please send any info to contact@ted.com. Thanks in advance for your help!

Great app

Great app and inspiring content!

The new UI update is much better than before but still needs some work:
* Seek bar when listening to audio only content. I have to use my phones lock screen to skip forward / backward.
* Ability to listen to audio content and then partway switch to video at the same point in time as the audio (e.g. This would be most useful when a demonstration takes place).
* The like and list toggle icons on a talks page are ambiguous. Much like the previous UI tab design the visual language is all wrong. You're using color to indicate the selected tab on the home screen but changing these icons to a different version of the same grey color to indicate their on/selected state. Does a filled grey heart mean selected or does a white filled heart mean selected? White is brighter then grey but your using it as unselected. Show both states to two different people who have never seem the screen and they'll be confused! Use your themes red color to show its selected. Also using an indication of what the button will do (in the case of a toggle button for the my list button is an anti pattern). It should show what it is, not what it'll become! Again, just use a color highlight.

You guys are sooo close...
