What's New

Version 5.1.1

Thank you to everyone that has sent in feedback on our visual refresh over the last few weeks. We've been hard at work since then and are excited to debut another improvement to the TED app: an all new audio experience!

The new TED audio player makes it easy to listen to your favorite talks on the go. We've not only given the player a much needed visual refresh, but also focused our attention on improving playback. Our developers claimed to have listened to Stephen Webb's talk on aliens "dozens of times" during testing to ensure that taking TED with you wherever you go is as seamless as ever.

Beyond audio, we also spent some time capturing a few bugs that escaped our grasp before the last release. Crashes were resolved. Alignments were tweaked. And various rough spots were sanded down.

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!
