  • Wonderful app

    By Juansteen4450120163810
    Easy to navigate, fascinating talks, really no major complaints.
  • Dark mode

    You should add an option to turn in on dark mode, to improve eye contact
  • Simply can't deliver

    By manyou07
    I use this app (well, *try*) to download TED talks for offline viewing (while on a plane, in dead zones, etc.) I have been using this app for years and can say that it is just as terrible at this as it always has been. Videos are routinely deleted without reason or warning, and sometimes videos that had been downloaded won't play. Worthless. After updating the app last week I opened it yesterday and received some message about the database being corrupt, and - guess what! - all my downloaded videos were deleted. Thanks TED. I guess the only way to win is to stop watching TED talks.
  • Downloads are buggy and imperfect

    By dylanmossman1996
    You have to keep the page you are downloading from open in order for the download to finish. Otherwise it will say it’s finished when it is really not. Also you should have the option to download at different resolutions to save space as by default they take up a lot of mb. Thanks for adding accounts to save my videos!
  • Need to fix

    By Jess1182
    I love this app and can definitely get lost in it but with the newest update Ive noticed that things I previously had saved are no longer there. If i like something then go to my talks its not there.
  • The Like button

    By Sarcasm 8367
    I rated this app 4 stars because it is easy to find videos you like and very easy to navigate the app in itself. However the like button doesn’t seem to work, no matter what I do it will not save the video as liked. The downloading has worked for me (I’ve only downloaded audio) so far. If they could just fix that little bug in my opinion it would be a five star app.
  • Can’t enable wireless data

    By lwl525
    I love TED, but this App the latest version is not working with the latest IOS 11.3.1. The problem is in the system setting it has no way to enable wireless data for the app, which means no internet for this app. Please fix it ASAP
  • Great app!

    By DMJUD
    This is great, now I can listen and sometimes even watch, when I’m not driving, to the talks. The app works great and the quality is amazing!
  • Updated Review: Still broken and needs more work

    Apple devices is not the place to have a terrible user experience. - UX / UI: Mark after a video “watched” after it has been played so that I know which videos I’ve seen. Grey or mask the thumbnail in search results like YouTube does for previously viewed videos. Sorry, the “History” tab does not help. I cannot tell which videos I’ve previously watched (that I previously added to my favorites) without going to history tab. This is ok if you only have 5 or 10, but falls apart when you have 20 or more. - UX: Persistence. Keep my place if I watch part of a video and return to finish on *ANY* device. If I start a video and then watch another video it doesn’t keep the place of either video. #Awful. - UX: Continuity. I often start to watch a video on my iPad and switch to my iPhone. Same for a web browser on a macOS. The last spot needs to be retained like it is on Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and dozens of others. - UX: Bug. Picture in picture doesn’t *resize* to full screen when you use the 4 finger gestures to swipe back to TED from another app. You have a black screen with TED running in the corner. UX: Bug. Downloaded video wouldn’t play from iPad to Apple TV until I deleted the local download. UX: Bug. Captions turn off randomly. Captions needed to be turned back on multiple times while I was using AirPlay to play from iPad to Apple TV. These are basic video player items from 10 years ago. Either invest in a quality native iOS app experience or save your money and force everyone to use the website if you’re going to have a substandard user experience. #FAILURE #Bugs #ShowUpOrGiveUp #Shameful
  • I’ll find myself bing watching
