What's New

Version 4.4

Happy 2018! We are back with a few updates we made over the last few weeks.

- Have an iPad? Want to watch TED talks while doing other things on said iPad? We now support Picture In Picture!
- If you are halfway through a great talk, but need to step away for a bit, we remember your position for that last played talk so you can get back to where you left off with minimal fuss.
- As a video buffers, its progress will be indicated on the playhead slider now.
- The most discerning of eyes will notice that we tweaked our featured talk text layout.
- We put our talk detail page on a post-holiday diet so that it uses less memory.
- When you'd tap on a list of localized talks, we'd show you a "Loading Talks" alert while we fetched the content. If you left the screen, however, that loading indicator would follow you around like the Snowden-bot at TED 2014.
- There was an issue where a opening a playlist from a deep like wouldn't load if it wasn't already cached. We fixed that.
- We fixed a crash that could occur if the video playback controls were updated before a video's duration was known. A bit too eager to show you our great content!

If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at contact@ted.com.

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!

Editors’ Notes

Watch fascinating talks on everything from modern values to futuristic technology with this sleek app hosting video lectures from TED conferences around the world. With intriguing discussions by experts, academics, and even celebrities like Sting and Bono, the TED app is a magnificent resource for learners of all ages. Recommended playlists and the option to download any video for offline viewing make the app simple to use, and educators can easily incorporate its content into their lesson plans to add richer context to a wealth of topics.

Beware! Download feature does not work well!

iOS user12345

Beware! The Download feature does not work well! First, the app does NOT download the video or audio in the background on wifi so you have to make sure you keep the app open! Second (and even worse) when you click on "My Talks" then choose downloads, it will show your talk as being downloaded when in fact it isn't! (the talk has only started to download or is only partially downloaded). This means that you will consume a lot of unplanned bandwidth when you try to view the "downloaded" talk (which may cost you a lot of money) or you won't be able to access it all all if you don't have an internet connection. It's a poorly designed app. They should have a "pending download" section in "My Talks" and enable the app to download in the background when on Wifi. There should also be a progress bar when the talk is being downloaded.

Fantastic

I absolutely love listening to the wide variety of TED talks while I’m at work. Whether it’s inspiration, passion, motivation, learning, or exposure to a new view that I’m looking for, TED has it. The only problem is that I was using so much data! Well, no worries!! TED allows free downloads of not only audio but video. Hallelujah! The only thing is my phone sometimes freezes when I’m using the app, but it may just be since I recently updated my phone and not because of the app. Overall, highly recommended and so happy!
