Customer Reviews


Let me start off by admitting to the fact that I hate writing reviews, but the beauty of this app should not be sheltered. I had to give this 5 stars without a doubt due to, not only the program itself, but the actual application. It's organized phenomenally and I hope as you enjoy, you also share this intellect with others.

Add Favorites Synchronization and Night Mode to remove bright white screen

** Areas for improvement: **

1. Favorites in the app need to be synced and stored online with my TED account that stores different (online only !) favorites...

2. Deleted all local app downloads, but the app still takes up ~340mb vs the 18mb install. Cannot delete the app without losing all of my (in-app) favorites. See #1

3. Add "night mode" to reduce eyestrain from BRIGHT WHITE background.

sharing via FB not working

Normally the app works pretty well, but today I couldn't share a Ted Talk on Facebook. I got to the window to share, added a message, pressed "Share" and instead of posting the talk to my wall, another window popped up where I could search through my friends or whatever.
