What's New in Version 3.0.1

Greetings, TEDsters! We hope you are having a good summer (or winter if you're on that side of the planet). We just got back from Banff, Canada and TED Summit 2016. We are going to be highlighting some of our favorite talks from Summit over the next few weeks, so be sure to check back daily. To help make your viewing easier, we've got a new release of the TED app for you.

Here's a few of the highlights from this month's release:

* The Popular Talks list should now have more fresh, dynamic content.
* Improved the readability and layout of the Talk Detail screen on the iPad. Your eyes will thank us.
* Fixed crash when turning off subtitles.
* Fixed issue where welcome screen would sometimes not disappear after finishing Inspire Me questionnaire. We were too welcoming apparently.
* Fixed formatting of talk duration on Talk Details screen for Arabic speakers.
* Fixed formatting of of minutes on the Inspire Me clock for Arabic speakers.
* Googlecast related strings should now show up as localized.
* We squashed a few smaller bugs and crashes as we always do.

We'd love to hear from you. If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at

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!

Customer Reviews

iPad App rating far below TED Talks standard.

My rating of "1" is specifically just for the iPad app and not for Ted talks. TEDTalks is great and the website allows you to login and select favorites. Unfortunately this iPad app does not have any login feature therefore any videos that you select as favorites are not synchronized to your online account therefore you have to waste much time searching for your videos again. If the iPad app did have a login feature which synchronizes to your online exit this would give it a rating of "5".

Inspirational and Informative App

This TED app brings numerous speakers to my phone, and I can honestly spend hours watching/listening/learning from them. If you love TED talks (and who doesn't?!), download the app! It's worth it!

Fix it

Great for getting TED Talks. Awful for curating and saving them. If you change phones, you lose all of your talks. If you have them saved to your account online, you have no way of accessing them in the app. Tie this app to my online account and it's 5-stars all day. Otherwise it's just wasting time to watch Talks here.
