Editors' Notes

Be inspired by some of the brightest minds of today.


Sync is slow but working

After thinking to have lost 100 talks out of the 150 I had in my list. I was just gutted.
At the end, the list is limited to 100 !
So I lost 50 of my carefully selected Talks.
I know that is should have liked them but they were from previous versions where there was no limit...
Please increase the list !!!

Developer Response

We've now fixed this issue, so if you go back into the app, you should see all 150 talks. Worst case, if you log out and back in, they should be retrieved. Thanks again for pointing this out.


Disappointed to have lost my likes after creating account

Have used the app to watch without account for ages as love the talks, just got a fire tv stick so decided to create an account so I could sync. As soon as I logged in I lost my watch later and likes, and am now unable to save anything to my watch later list or likes. As soon as I come back to the my talks page they have disappeared again! Really frustrating! Please fix!
