I liked the app It is a nice way to keep track of new TED videos and also to add them to your favorites list It is very easy to use             Good app
I dont often write reviews for the apps I download I doubt many do I also dont often write reviews for an app because its perfect In fact its usually the opposite This app not only crashes with chrome cast but it has no nightlife feature no system for saving your video history and little customization or interesting features Fix this app Improve it You KNOW AUOU XAN DO BETTER    Disappointing lack of progress
Its great this is free but sos the web AppleTV versions the beauty of those two your saved talks are synced using your TED account The app is standalone Maybe Ill use this more when that features builtin a little frustratingEverything else about it very nice clean convenient       What about my TED account
The three stars is for the actual content You cant beat that But its not 5 because the app itself needs a lot of work If Im listening to the audio of a talk and anything at all interrupts the playback it stops and doesnt resume and my progress is lost Basically it they could take a lesson from the podcast app it would be great          Great Content Poor Interface
The updates are great and the app runs beautifully but it will never be up to par until you add a profile login feature so that we can access our Ted profile and favorites comments etc 2 stars for this as I had to knock it down one This feature has been requested by others for some time and it still hasnt been added       Still missing an essential feature
It is 2015 and it is very unfortunate that good resources like this do not have any captioning feature thus reducing any access for a Deaf person like me I would love to watch Ted videos but I cant watch without captioning    No Captioning
This app shows the talks well but doesnt keep a history or let you add bookmarks or stars to return to in your Ted profile Needs a couple enhancements          Missing a couple important features
Mainly it should have account support so I can watch videos Ive saved on the website          Solid app needs improvement
It crashes every time I connect to the chromecast       Chromecast
I really like the app its awesome and also useful but there are some problems for example when you select a language it opens lots of talks but there is no icon for searching which is annoying and it takes a long time to get what u want          Useful app
I love TED I have watched countless talks and downloaded many of them that I rewatch for inspiration and even academic reference I play them often when I give a seminar or lead a gathering of postgraduate students in my institution in Uganda I thought this app would finally help me cutting the downloading problems Unfortunately the absence of the back and refresh buttons and history not being saved make excrutiatingly painful to find and download interesting talks found through random searches or app suggestions Downloading is also much slower than with other video downloaders Maybe low res versions of the talks could be accessible The sound poadcast is of course much easier but there are times when important references are given on the slides and videos are always more shareable than sound tracks I hope the app will catch up soon          Not for low speed connections
Variety of amazing lectures available whenever I need them Needs to collaborate with some kickstarter program                PocketSized Inspiration
Downloads randomly stop and wont continue Playback same thing Search and browse is ok If a talk does download it works okThis thing needs some better coding to work through hiccups with connectionsNot recommended       Buggy
Older versions worked better This version crashes frequently with the screen freezing and audio continuing Also seems to be slower to stream Maybe its time to get some of that TED speakers to work on this app    Crash prone
I love TED but some videos on this app are missing sound Most videos with start out with sound the stop half way Can you please fix thisThank you       Love
The new version immediately crashes when trying to cast a talk          New version crashes with Chromecast
Love this app Easy to sort through and simple to use Love the download options Hope it remains updated wnew Talks when possible                Ted App
Really annoying when the video stops but the audio keeps playing          Could use some work
Please not there is an orientation issue that On the iPhone 6 plus sprint when rotation lock is off and you rotate the screenThis app is not yet designed for landscapebrowsing other then that love itCan you create a stream stack channel for iOS and Apple TV just a background player continuous stream and a confirm watch of rest real later          Rotation orientation issues
1 Sync with my account foe favorites folders I create and saved bookmarks 2 Why does it keep starting over when all I want to do is fastforward a bit 3 Comments section       I love TED talk The app not so much
Solid app Allow login so preferences can be tracked          Whats the next iteration for TED
It is a great app it has so many interesting speakers and presenters Love it                I guess i will start rating Ted talks
No login no history When youre watching a video and you quickly go to another app and return the video is gone Basically its missing so many features its impossible to use it One of those worst apps in the store    Dont use it Use the website
I agree with most other reviews but for what I want in this version Im ok with it I think the developers will make suggested improvements             Good Needs Improvement
How Not to follow your dreams Incredible 5 tips Just get it and learn                5 Stars
I love TED talks but this app is extremely frustrating None of the talks will play when headphones are plugged into my iPhone Which makes this app pointless for me       Will not play with headphones
The video blacks out when I try to enlarge itThanks for the app          Video Problems
A format for supposed brightness insight has the worst search Ive ever seen A search for math yields 13 or 14 people Come on No geniuses at TED and NOWHERE to give feedback I guess they think they are above it    Worst search ANYWHERE
The app is okay but there are some annoying things about it I want to be able to see the most viewed top rated talks just like you can on the website I also find it annoying that if I am streaming a talk and get a phone call I have to start to talk all over again It doesnt automatically begin again and I have to manually start it again which doesnt keep the spot I was when the phone call came in       Alright but could be so much better
I searched to Ted Robinson from the Ted app and got just Sir Teds curated set of 10 talks None of his own talks What a disappointment    Search fail
Not updating talks for quite a few weeks Latest version is broken Using iPhone 6 plus    This version is broken
I cant download any new TED talks on my original iPadThe app stopped adding new talks recentlyIs this the end of the iPad 1    TED Stopped Update on IOS 51
No problem with the content TED talks are the most educational entertaining and inspiring on the web I strongly recommend these to my students family and friends However the app can be a lot more useful if users are able to login using their TED web profile so they can sync and manage talks and playlist engage in a discussion or leave comments on each of the videos they view or listen to In that way a desktop to mobile experience will be seamless          Great app but a user login feature will make it greater
Used to love it a lot I can bear all the minor imperfects mentioned in other reviews However it stops working a couple days ago Always show error while playback 11848 Very frustrating       Playback error 11848
Can you add a way to track which talks youve watched             Doesnt track what you watch
I would love to have a login and sync feature I would also like to download for offline viewing which I am currently unable to do Simply will not access my cell data connection and download       Needs Features
I need to delete the videos I have downloaded Enable this Great app otherwise    FIX THISSS
Love this app and loved it even more because I can cast it to Google Chromecast But in the last two days it crashed whenever I tried to cast it Please fix I need my daily dose of ideas worth sharing Grazi       Update needed
This version crashes when connecting to my Chromecast Report submitted       Crash on Chromecast
No sound Totally lame My other listening apps work    Doesnt work with iPhone 6 plus
Simply doesnt work on an iPhone 6 plusClearly the author has never even seen aTED talk They would be over hisher 2digit IQ head anyway    Totally lame Dont bother
Its a great app a good means of finding inspirational talks easily                Has not let me down
Areas for improvement 1 Favorites in the app need to be synced and stored online with my TED account that stores different online only favorites2 Add night mode to reduce eyestrain from BRIGHT WHITE backgroundBug opening videos from internet in TED app causes a blank black screen Formatted explanation for QA to reproduce bug Given I find a TED video onlineAnd there is a open in TED app link at top of website And Im using iOS Safari with an iPad Air 2 with iOS 82 And TED app has been reinstalled When I click to open in the TED appAnd it launches the TED appWhen I click to go to full screen in TED app the screen goes black Helpful Vote below    Add Favorites Synchronization and Night Mode to remove BRIGHT white screen
App crashes every time I try to play audio or video IOS 83    Will not play
This seems like something so basic Ive got stuff bookmarked on my laptop that I would love to listen to Not going to happen I dont want to look for it over and add it again on my phone Counter productive       Really no login
Doesnt make sense that you cannot bookmark a talk to watch it later on the iPad       No Login Why
The TED Talks are always top notch and set a standard for best of class thinking ideas and cutting edge advancement in almost any field or topic you want to imagine This app does an adequate job of presenting the video and audio but gosh considering the bar is set so very very high for the content you would think the app would at least approach that I agree with other comments in some of the reviews Get play lists favorites and history syncing across all the platforms Also the app should functionally acknowledge on all platforms that in some cases like driving in your car only the audio needs to be presented Dark unobtrusive mode would be nice too It cant be that TED doesnt know talented folks that could make this app singI mean whats not to like about TED TED IS AWESOME But the multidevice utility of the app is not          Content 1st Class App Not So Much
Completely useless on my iphone 6 ios 84None of the touch buttons work when you open the app and when you minimize and maximize it the app crashes    Bad performance on ios 8
AirPlay mode mirror picture to smart TV is a must have for any media app today             One more function to be perfect
I cant believe this app doesnt allow you to sign in to your account to save favorites Seems a little to simple for Ted Talks       Too Simple of an app but love Ted Talks
