What's New in Version 3.0.4

Hi there. It's your pals at the TED iOS team again. We know we just talked last week, but we had a few small fixes we wanted to push our before our next scheduled release. We hope they make your TED viewing experience even better. Be sure to check out our latest talks from the likes of Christopher Soghoian, Tim Leberecht, and Kandice Sumner.

Here's what's changed since the last update:

* Opening a playlist from a universal link should be more reliable now.
* Fixed a crasher that could sometimes happen before a playlist was finished loading.
* Indians blew a 3-1 lead.

We'd love to hear from you. 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!

Incredible content but app is unusable

The content on this app cannot be consumed reliably, at least through Google chromecast. The app crashes and the videos restart at the beginning every time I play a video while casting, switch apps, and reenter the TED app. It even restarts if, while I'm casting, I play a video, let my phone sit idle, and then unlock my phone. This happens even with audio only content. I typically always stream video/audio content rather than consume it through my phone. This issue makes this app basically unusable for me.

If the app could resolve this issue, it would no doubt be a 5 star app. The app is extremely user friendly. The surprise me option is ingenious and the discover menu is so well organized - I love the playlists. The radio hour option is also great for a quick listen. I would not change anything about the app except to maybe add a history tab to my talks - it would be great to look back at what I've already watched.

I will continue to look for updates to resolve this issue because this app has so much to offer.


It is an application loaded with inspiring talks, targeted at people who are eager to learn and can also be used by educators. It has a clean layout with a handy search function. Talks are categorized as “featured” and “popular” . I feel surprised that it even has subtitles in various languages! One innovative design is that it invites users to choose the length of a playlist, so that people do not need to feel bad because they cannot finish it. Another innovation is that users can download and bookmark talks and with downloading, for some talks, users can choose to download an audio or a video one. Very thoughtful. The icon is clear. It takes some time to navigate but once familiar, you will have no trouble finding “your talks”. It can be told from its partnership with Rolex that this is a popular application.

When will app connect to & utilize personal TED accounts?

This is a great app in many ways, but is crippled by the inability to connect to your personal TED account, where you may have stored many "my Talks" -- bookmarks, if you will, that can be created and shared on the web-based TED site and even using the TED channel on Roku. Instead, the iOS app is totally isolated to the device it's running on. Even TED on an iPhone and iPad are disconnected and unaware of each other. This is a pretty basic and important capability and I know you've acknowledged it as such for several years, but still haven't made available. Will it be coming any time soon? I love TED talks, so please make this available!
