What’s New

Version 5.6.1

We received a few reports from you about our push notifications not opening to the talk you were expecting, so we wanted to get a fix out for that. Our iOS developer (who is also writing these release notes) is very sorry about that bug.

Here's the full list of what's improved in this release.

* We fixed a few scenarios where tapping the "Open" link at the top of a talk page on your iOS device wouldn't open to that content in our app.
* We are trying to be smarter about removing push notifications from your lock screen. If you tap on a message, it is removed but any other messages from us should be kept around in case you're using the lock screen as a mini-bookmarking system.
* There was a crash on launch that was affecting some users. We were trying to load the app's interface in the background.
* We fixed a crash that could happen in the video player when trying to update its internal state.

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

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!

Listens to Users!

Very happy to be able to login to my account finally, and have it sync all of my saved talks! This popped up as soon as I launched the updated app, and everything was seamlessly synced over from what I’ve saved. I have no issues giving this a full 5 stars now!

Kills battery

This app 4+ hours of background activity vs minutes for other apps is killing my battery. I have deleted it until it is fixed.
