What's New in Version 2.2.4
• Improvements to video playback on iPhone
TED is a perfect application for visionaries, thinkers and those who have a endless curiosity about our universe. Users can choose to watch and save numerous videos on topics ranging from our galaxy to things that affect our everyday life. TED has a slick layout so topics can be browsed in a number of ways whether by subject, keyword, duration, and popularity. Bookmarks and sharing tools are provided so you can easily access videos you want to watch later and send videos to others who might be interested. Playback is smooth and functional with the latest update improving on playback and deletion of videos from saved lists. This is truly an application that is designed for users of all ages.
Needs a subtitle option!
That's the only thing that is preventing this app from getting a five star rating from me.
NOTE: I am not hard of hearing (but what I propose would be a good idea for those who like TEDTalks but cannot hear very well). There are just some things that the presenters say that I simply do not understand or follow. Subtitles really help with that, and I was disappointed to find there was not a subtitle option.
If this is added, I will change it to a five star rating and call it a night!
If you're streaming a video, and for some reason you need to use another app (such as answer your phone, or read an email) when you come back to the app, it acts as if you weren't just using it, so if you were in the middle of watching a video, not only do you have to find the video again, but you have to remember where you were in the video
