Great app - major flaw 2/5
Your app is a great app and I use it every morning when working out to get “educated”.
One big flaw is when I choose a video to watch and I see on the right hand side another video in “Related Talks” I’m interested to watch afterward there is no way to find it again. Every time I finish the main video the “Related Talks” have changed again and I’m not able to watch the other video I was interested in. Even more so: There is no way to add a video in “Related Talks” to your watch list. That makes actually the “Related Talks” section pointless since I can never get back and watch what was suggested to me.
Please, I would appreciated if you can make it work that the “Related Talk” videos are NOT changing every time I finish a video or add the main video to the watch list but rather that I’m able to go back and be able to watch one of the suggested videos.
Horrible App 1/5
Was hoping to love this app but’s it’s horrible. I can never find specific speakers when I do a search. Content really needs to be updated.
The talks freeze at times. Although I download the audio, I wish can use other apps while the talks are playing.
Awesome content; crashes all the time 3/5
I enjoy the content of the app and think that it’s a brilliant organization. By the app constantly crashes (iOS 11.1.2, iPhone X)
Need resume functionality 3/5
Application works well. However every time I pause, close my iPad and try to resume, the application hangs, and a force restart is required.
Download speed 1/5
The speed of downloading in app is very very low and I can not download any of audios or videos. Please fix this isuue
I would give it a full five, but I feel that the age rating shouldn’t be so high. Ted talks should be enjoyed by all ages. Stop discriminating, Ted.
The App Store doesn’t support fractions of a star, so I was nice and gave it 5.
Updating TED database issue fixed! 5/5
By Arsenal_gooner 33
Still needs work 1/5
By N/A 1234
- UX / UI: Mark after a video after it has been watched so that I know which I’ve finished.
- UX: Persistence. Keep my place if I watch part of a video and return to finish.
- UX: Table stakes. Picture in picture / video overlay for multitasking.
These are basic video player items from 10 years ago.
Not downloading iOS 11.1 iPhone 6 1/5
My videos stopped downloading for offline use. They used to start downloading as soon as I clicked the download button and I could watch them load. Now they do nothing and the only videos I can watch offline are ones I downloaded months ago.
Downloads don’t work anymore... 5/5
I love this app, but the most recent version doesn’t indicate whether downloaded talks are actually downloaded. And, downloaded videos won’t play when in airplane mode. This makes airplane trips much less educational :)
Great content; App can be improved 3/5
The content goes without saying. Great stuff.
I, too, lost all of My Talks. In my case this occurred when moving from my iPad 2 to my new iPad Pro.
Also, the app says I downloaded the talks but they are not downloaded. Instead, they seem to actually be links back to the TED site, which then serves the talks on demand.
Try to view the downloaded files with no WiFi and there is nothing there.
Worse still, the app says to save talks to My List for offline viewing but doesn’t say how to do that. And I cannot find either a TED-authored Operating and Troubleshooting Guide or relevant advice on the web.
Finally you can log into your TED account 5/5
Previously I gave a bad review for the TED app because you could not login into your TED account to sync your "likes", playlists, and history.
Thank you TED app developers! You can now login to your TED account through the app. 😎
TED EDs 4/5
I love this app and I love watching the videos but I would really love to have TED EDs on here. I love that series on YouTube.
A must have app for leaders 5/5
One of the best apps to have for those wishing to expand their leadership and management skills. It has become my go-to app for current and relevant information.
Must have app 5/5
I truly believe every single phone should have this app built in because of the wealth of knowledge one will get by simply watching engaging talks on topics we should all be aware of. Love the app especially the "Surprise me" option. Never change TED.
Best App 5/5
This app is amazing.
Fantastic app but needs support LTE 5/5
At first, I can say this app is wonderful not only for learning English, but also for who is interested in various grounds. But I think this app should support the LTE or even 3G for downloading videos. Anyway, that's my pleasure to be one of big fans of this app
Erased everything 2/5
I signed in and it erased all of my talks that I saved. You’re kidding me, right? With all of the money this app must be making, you couldn’t carry over my liked videos to my account, you just had to erase them all. You’re kidding me, right?
But... but... but.... 4/5
By Big Jim Bigado
I love TED talks. I have loved them since the moment I first discovered them and I watch them all the time. I'm always telling friends and family that no matter what their interests are, there is a TED talk for them.
However.... the latest app update has erased all the talks I had added to my list. I had 60 or 70 talks queued up that I was excited to watch and just like that, they are gone. Still a wonderful app with what I believe to be unparalleled content, but I'm striking one star on account of the major faux pas.
Even in the wake of this tragedy (pardon my being dramatic), I learned a valuable lesson:
Always screenshot your playlists and every app!
Love TED. 5/5
It took a little while, but happy to see you can now have a synced watch list!
Solid App 5/5
The app is exactly what I expect it to be. Thumbs up.
Log In 5/5
Thank you so much for the Log-in feature! Great app!!
Thanks for updating! 5/5
Can finally login to ted.com account to access saved videos!
Good app 4/5
Love ted talks and the app is great. Lost one star because the audio only option is confusing. Not sure why it is not available on all talks
By Mitch Engle
It's amazing. So much to see and hear. No glitches or anything of that sort. Works perfectly. One of my most used apps
Great App, Great Content 5/5
I’ve loved TED talks for years, and I love how easy it is to bookmark and enjoy my favorites from the app—and how fun it is to discover new talks. (Even the weekly app notifications are perfectly timed to make me want to check out something new without making me feel overwhelmed.) Great job!
Edited to add: oh my gosh, account sync is a WONDERFUL addition. Thank you!
App keeps messing up 3/5
I have the iPhone 8 plus and this app is still having issues , fix please
I really and truly enjoy Ted Talks, and this app works well. Then I noticed that I had been waiting to upgrade to the latest version. That’s not like me. I finally figured out that I did >not< like being referred to as a Tedster. Seems so sophomoric for such a sophisticated site/app. Might just be me, but it’s me.
Awesome app 5/5
Love looking for new talks. Easy to search for talks and like that I can bookmark talks I want to listen to later.
Great TED talk gateway! 5/5
The TED talks app is always updated and could arguably be the best performing video app! Thank you for making TED talks more accessible through mobile devices!
Absolutely amazing 5/5
This app should definitely be in each smartphone user. We are missing a lot of knowledge and insights by not opening this app more often.
Not good.不好 1/5
There is a problem 1/5
By محمد عبدالمحسن
I can’t download videos, I can’t wach videos. I hope the problems will be fixed.
Excellent but needs update ASAP 4/5
My favorite app to get inspired everyday. After iOS 11 this app needs update ASAP.
Love the content- app is heading right direction 5/5
Love the TED content!
I see the app has a ways to go to be perfect but it is definitely heading in the right direction with bug fixes and improvements. Great job guys and keep it up
Excellent App 5/5
Good video play function. It's nice how we can download the video or audio alone to our phones.
Needs more features 4/5
Please add the following features:
-History of watched videos.
-Watch on TV via connected wifi feature similar to YouTube.
Great response, good people 5/5
By Xavier PJ
But then again you'd expect nothing less.
Great App! 5/5
By Caleb Craf
I’m not sure why there are so many negative reviews; this app rocks. It does exactly what you would want it to do. It’s clean and easy to use. 0 complaints from me.
Love everything about this app 5/5
I loved seeing TED videos in my feed now and then, and now I can get my TED fix wherever, whenever! The app works perfectly for my iPhone, and I love spending my free time watching educated speakers. TED talks are truly a gift.
An App worth spreading 5/5
Keep up with new talks, find talks by category, or get surprised with the "surprise me" feature. It also has a great widget that shows a pic and description of new talks daily.
The app itself has a clean and familiar interface so you instantly know your way around. The audio only feature is great when driving. You can add talks to "My list" (like Netflix) and shows
your favorites in a list for easy access. For those without unlimited data, you can download talks to watch and or listen to later.
Best of all, their developers keep it updated and address bugs quickly; and all without any ads.
Love this App 5/5
Love TED talks!
Great Content and Fantastic App 5/5
By Collin Donnell
This app makes it so easy to discover interesting talks I never would have found otherwise and has rock solid performance and stability. It has healed me in both body and soul.
TED on the go! 5/5
I love this app for TED talks, I absolutely love the downloads for offline viewing!
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!
No way to clear downloads for space 2/5
By Software Eng.
This app is small, but the talks take up a lot of space, and once you download a talk there does not seem to be a way to reclaim the space it took without deleting the app. So, I'm deleting the app. 😕
By O.H. Lover
Love the app setup but my videos start over everytime I open the app when chromecasting. Please fix this!
Bookmarks lost 1/5
The app was much better before- Why going BACKWARDS?
-why I lost all my bookmarks?
-why I cannot anymore do "play all"?
-why there is no login to sync bookmarks over different devices?
I hope you can solve these simple common problems.
💡 Login Feature Missed 4/5
Add from computer and listen/watch talks on the go. Please add it.
