    The App works great except when you want to share any of the talks. Other than that, you can download any talk in 3 different video qualities for offline use, and each talk usually comes with different subtitle language options. You can browse talks by speaker, subject and save your favorite talks to your own Favorites list. It's easy to find interesting talks from important figures in different areas, including science, history, philosophy and education.

  • Fantastic

    by Just.a.girl

    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!

  • by Leanne Mustain

    Some of these speeches have changed my views on life, living, and death. I've learned everything from stem cells to fisheries. I've seen experiences through other people's eyes that have changed my views on the world. There are some true experts in the field of many diverse subjects and experiences. Go explore what interests you!

  • Still does not download properly

    by Gaskination

    Even with the updated version I can’t get the videos to download successfully for off-line viewing. I have a dozen or so videos supposedly downloaded in my downloads section, but when I am in airplane mode I cannot watch those videos. There’s also no indication regarding the progress of the download. After you click on the download video button, it just shows up in your downloads section. But there’s no indication how much is downloaded. And there’s no way to refresh the download or restart it.

  • Now I know what I don’t know

    by tqberry

    I’m sure this review is - technically- supposed to be for the app itself. However, I’m having a hard time thinking of the app without the content. For me, the app works; it downloads fine, plays well, and is there whenever I want it. Four stars for that. That said, the content gets eleven stars (on a scale of 1-5). There are so many fascinating ideas that I’ve been completely unaware of that I have to laugh at my own ignorance. Thanks, TED crew, for helping me see beyond.

  • by Bagas Mukti

    Hi Ted, I literally just know that you have your own app and its really great so thank you!! The things that might be great if you add likes and list button on the now playing section which that makes us easier to likes/put it on lists in order save & watch some video again later instead of should back, find the video, then like. Thank you and keep spreading the ideas!

  • Todays Exemplary Developments

    by AppleJoeAJ

    TED should be broadcasted in every part of the world, free of charge. It should be a given right to have access to this information. PS: Love the notes you guys write when you push an update to the app store! Makes keeping the TED updated, makes me feel like you’re building an app for the users and followers and subscribers😄 (in comparison to Facebook which seems to only make an app for the masses 🙄) Keep up the good work! ❤️

  • Great app, but downloads don’t play!

    by danivelezg

    I love this app because of the variety of videos on it and the surprise me feature which always brings me interesting videos I haven’t watched before. It also has a clean user interface and well developed search engine. However, whenever I play my downloaded videos offline, I am able to play one but the next one does not play because of a playback error. Sometimes it plays once I restart my iPad, but most of the time it still does not work. Please fix this!

  • by Yasmin Jaiswar

    I have been always watching videos on TED TALKS....We need to touch the heart of a common man more than people who are educated ...this will develop people and develop our country as well....Every individual gives their examples...they should give examples from the life of a common man who strives so hard to survive

  • Fascinating talks!

    by Genius User #7638296

    I love how this app is set up, and the content is incredible, but I seemed to have a problem downloading content. I would have like 15 talks downloaded in my list, but when I look again, I only have nine. Not only this, but several of my successfully downloaded talks that didn’t mysteriously disappear just didn’t play and ran into an error. Overall, while the content is very interesting, I had to take a star off for the downloading issue.

  • by igor bubak

    i have problem on Note 8 when I pause video and phone goes to sleep , after waking up, Ted app does not keep progres progress or at least opens save video I wathed last time, so I have to look for it again. Also, some times it happends that after reopening app audio continues to play but you cant find it in app list running. It also does not pause and resume video when disconected from bluetooth in car.

  • by Vasim Shaikh

    The app is great and I use it all the time to watch Ted talks while travelling but there is a bug with My lists. Everytime I remove something from the list I find that the next day it comes back into the list. It is really annoying as I use the list to keep of the talks I have watched and yet to watch. Please fix this bug with lists.

  • Love TED, want to love the app

    by Olaf, like the snowman

    I love TED with a passion, it has helped me change so much in my life for the better. The app however does need some changes but the two are mutually exclusive as far as I’m concerned. I watch TED the most when I’m away from home and lately (I’ve downloaded the latest update) I’ve not been able to watch or listen to any of the talks. Please fix the app, TED is so inspirational! I only gave 4 stars because of how the app is behaving lately.

  • by minmg mg

    That is good app. I get many knowledge from talk show. I want request to you. I'm from Myanmar. Please add Myanmar subtitle because i can't understand all of meaning. Thank you.

  • Overall a Really Nice App

    by heathrulez

    For the most part this app does exactly as you’d expect. Easily browse videos and playlists, and the “Surprise Me” feature is pretty cool. There are a few things I’d like to see improved though. The video player lacks the swipe gestures that other’s do (pinching to exit a video, for instance) and I think there are yet more ways to navigate and filter TED Talks that couple be employed. Overall rather satisfied though.

  • by Laura Dickson

    The talks and the overall app work fine, however similar to another review I've read here, I can't seem to find a lot of talks that I know exist - quite often I have to go on to the TED website and add them to my list there in order to see them on the app. Seems like such an obvious thing to fix..

  • 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.

  • by Nino van Hooff

    It's nice that you can you use this app in the background like an audio player. What annoys me a lot though, is that the pause button changes into a loading icon every 5 seconds while playing. Distracting and disturbing.

  • An App worth spreading

    by ultrafastneal

    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.

  • by amzar saidi

    Omg! I just love this apps. Never knew TED produce this apps. Just listen in Youtube before which is not in proper arrangement in terms of topics, title and etc. Thanks to suggestion in play store. Please produce more talks!

  • Learning

    by Nimamk333

    As a teacher I always recommend this application to my students as a must have. Students are required to pay attention to all details and learn from the best keynote speakers in the world. I highly recommend this app to all interested in talks and discussions on updated topics of the world today.

  • by Piyush Dingore

    Too Good to be true... This app is probably the best app on any application store... Its fun, motivational, informative and extremely useful... Thank you TED, a great initiative with TEDx talks and with the app...

  • Notification sound

    by Whimzical_Daisy

    The app is great. Its easy, simple, and sweet. Hands down The the notification sound for his app has to be my absolute favorite thing about the the app. I wish there was an option of setting it as the default sound for all my notifications on my device.

  • by Mahdi Naimi

    Actually its a perfect app that i have ever seen. It has a wide range of brilliant speaking with perfect subtitle. But the only problem is the server. Honesty its awful. It takes along for download just 5MB video!!! Please fix this problem.🙏🙏

  • Awesome!

    by Yoshi's Wifey

    I love this app! It's great when you have a little down time or when you're in the car. My favorite feature is the "surprise me" option. Because of it, I've listened to a ton of talks that I normally wouldn't have clicked on and learned more than would've otherwise.

  • by The Songs Of Enlightenment

    please.... I beg you , return the app to previous downloading method (mp4 videos via download manager). The new downloads takes way too much space and also too much time even with a solid internet connection. Also if you can , please add TEDx videos to the app. I love TED and Thank you all

  • by Yogesh Patil

    I use this app and enjoying very much. only one option is not there that is, we can't share this app link to people. If possible can we add that option so when we send link to our friends, relatives or family members they will be able to download it easily.

  • But... but... but....

    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!

  • Good and needs some improvements

    by tmglkg

    I downloaded this to listen to talks while driving. Well, I have to click each video instead of having on a continuous playlist. Very dangerous while driving. There are pre-made playlist but that doesn’t mean there are all good. Please make a “play all” talks in the list feature. Some downloads work, others didn’t.

  • Like it BUT.....

    by ShaeStanley

    I actually love watching TED talks but I have trouble adding them to my Watchlist on my phone app. Every time I click the little plus button I see a check mark indicating the video was added but when I go to my list it’s never there. I go back to the video and see the plus sign again as though it was never added. Please fix this so that I can give this app 5 stars.

  • Excellence!

    by One Woman

    When I’m facing a situation that requires knowledge, wisdom and guidance I can always find relevant talks that meet my needs and motivate. I also use it to think about what I believe and whether or not there’s another viewpoint that can enhance or alter my opinions. I also utilize them in training meetings.

  • Brilliant!

    by Kingpeyman

    Everything is beautifully designed in this app, and the content is terrific. However, there is this one thing that’s bothering me which is the lack of some of the TEDx talks. There are numerous great TEDx talks spreading wonderful ideas, and it would be amazing if you included more TEDx talks or even created a section for them in the app. Thank you 🙏🏼

  • Must have app

    by Slappymen

    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.

  • Fantastic app but needs support LTE

    by Mohamadrshhoss

    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

  • Feature Request

    by SurrealSoup

    1. Mark talks that have already been seen. (Seen=90% Watched) 2. Add the ability to tag and star talks personally. (And filtering search results using them.) This helps immensely in rewatching talks, NOT watching some talks, and recommending talks to friends.

  • Finally you can log into your TED account

    by XYPixel.com

    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. 😎

  • I enjoy app

    by lauren_j72

    Ted talks are quite interesting and there is a large variety of them to watch. I commonly start videos only to find that I have seen them before and I wish there was some way to state that it was watched and just a date saying when

  • Surprise me! Don’t take away my sunshine!

    by dekdout

    Love love love the TED talks. I would play the newest until I ran out and then use the Surprise Me feature. Loved it. Pick a subject, a time frame, and it would randomly put a playlist together that was around the time you picked. Latest update does t have it. 😢😢

  • Great content; App can be improved

    by NHRef

    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.

  • Tedsters?

    by MRP2MPow

    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.

  • Screen won't rotate

    by bdv0430

    The only minor issue is that the screen won't rotate when using the "Surprise Me" feature. Seems to be the only time I run into this issue. It is otherwise an excellent app with lots of good content.

  • Great place to get all the talks.

    by Stubbs323

    The TED app is a great place to get all the talks you want together and organize different preferences. You can even get random talks based upon what you’re trying to see and how much time you have.

  • Love it!

    by Jankery

    TED is an awesome place to gain insight on the world around us! The development and social movements going on right under our nose become evident when I am exposed to TED. Thank you for all that you do, keeping it free of charge, just to make our society better.

  • Great videos, app is often troublesome

    by Rjbman

    With recent updates, it is very difficult to see which videos have actually finished downloading. The progress bar slides around seemingly at random. Download bars appear and disappear, including with videos I thought had already completed.

  • Love everything about this app

    by teyateya

    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.

  • Great Content and Fantastic App

    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.

  • Love my TED app

    by LorieV

    I love my TED app. I’ve encountered very few bugs, but when they do occur they are remedied quickly. I also love that you don’t prompt me to leave a review and interrupt my listening time. Thanks for all the great talks at my fingertips.

  • Get this app!

    by Anton Harrison LaMon

    Content aside- this app is fantastic. The reason I am giving 5 stars, well, any app that states “we don’t want to take away from your experience by asking for an app review...” in my opinion deserves 5stars! They recently did an update/upgrade to the app and the download functionality- so don’t let the reviews about downloading issues deter you from doing yourself the favor and downloading this app. Honestly... Why are you still reading this review?! Download it!!! 😁

  • Wonderful app!

    by Timinater

    The TED app is not only full of interesting information in and of itself, the app has been optimized beautifully for the iPad, even my Pro 12.9. The addition of PiP was fantastic. Keep up the great work!

  • Love the content- app is heading right direction

    by Beedell

    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

  • A must have app for leaders

    by ColinBlo

  • Thank you!

    by Bdawgno1

    Dear Team TED, you guys are awesome and thank you for iOS update. App is well designed and I cannot wait to keep watching new talks (instead of listening to them on the podcast).

  • 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

  • A necessity!

    by camilahaha

    This app needs to be downloaded more often. More people need to be aware of what goes on in the world and this app genuinely helps people improve their sense of compassion and understanding! I love it so much!

  • Absolutely amazing

    by Zeeez10

    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.

  • The most motivating App of all time

    by H.Hasani

    Wathcing TED talks motivate me to take a step further. I like to watch people who know what they want to do and how to do it. Thanks to TED app, now I can watch those people everywhere I go.

  • Great App!

    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.

  • Overall great app

    by Tasseled

    Great content, great app EXCEPT that talks are not actually saved to My Talks when that option is selected. There are some talks saved from before I created an account but now I can’t add anymore.

  • Transcript!!

    by rafaelsersun

    Great app! But:: The only thing missing is the option to read the transcript of any video. Currently the only option is to open the link in a browser..

  • 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!

  • Great app but the video doesn't play, only the sound comes!!!!

    by Haaaaleeeey;)

    I love this app so much but there's a problem with playing the videos. The video stops after a few seconds and only the audio plays. I wonder why!!!

  • Must have

    by sabadila1

    This app is a must have if you like to learn! I love the new discover tab, where I’m able to seamlessly look through topics.

  • Desire a "log in" feature

    by samdog409

    I love having access to all the content, but I select talks for "My List" from my computer and I have no way of then watching these same selections on my iPad which is very disappointing.

  • Intermittent user

    by jeffreyscottbrock

    I really enjoy this app. I wish I was in a position where I could utilize it more. Easy to navigate through.

  • Inspiring & Convenient

    by MagnoliaCreole

    I am thrilled with the convenience of watching or listening to a TED talk on my schedule, let alone to find inspiration whenever I need one.👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾

  • Wonderfull app.

  • Still missing key features

    by Zman771

    Still can't bookmark a video in the app. Log in is missing password manager integration and Facebook login uses the old web-based method. Come on guys, this is basic stuff!

  • 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.

  • TED is fantastic

    by Nik625

    I love TED talks. There are a few glitches in the app, but nothing that keeps me from loving it. It’s a great way to learn things from new and interesting perspectives.

  • Great TED talk gateway!

    by Lukejv

    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!

  • 4.5

    by TheXxTurlip

    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.

  • Great , can be better

    by Ahmad almaghrabi

  • Bring back Random/ Surprise me

    by Gina Nickkle

    Please bring back the surprise me/ random video feature. The app itself is good. Sometimes it doesn’t let videos download.

  • Please fix downloads

    by Harry the hatchet

    Falsely indicates downloaded when video isn’t. Doesn’t play when offline. Confusing and frustrating.

  • Love TED.

    It took a little while, but happy to see you can now have a synced watch list!

  • Now I know what I don’t know

    by tqberry

    I’m sure this review is - technically- supposed to be for the app itself. However, I’m having a hard time thinking of the app without the content. For me, the app works; it downloads fine, plays well, and is there whenever I want it. Four stars for that. That said, the content gets eleven stars (on a scale of 1-5). There are so many fascinating ideas that I’ve been completely unaware of that I have to laugh at my own ignorance. Thanks, TED crew, for helping me see beyond.

  • Dual subtitles

    a) It's TED and TEDx. What's not to like? b1) There are bugs. What doesn't have any? b2) They take the trouble to chase down and fix the bugs. What's not to like?

  • Love my TED app

    by LorieV

    I love my TED app. I’ve encountered very few bugs, but when they do occur they are remedied quickly. I also love that you don’t prompt me to leave a review and interrupt my listening time. Thanks for all the great talks at my fingertips.

  • Excellence!

    by One Woman

    When I’m facing a situation that requires knowledge, wisdom and guidance I can always find relevant talks that meet my needs and motivate. I also use it to think about what I believe and whether or not there’s another viewpoint that can enhance or alter my opinions. I also utilize them in training meetings.

  • Surprise me! Don’t take away my sunshine!

    by dekdout

    Love love love the TED talks. I would play the newest until I ran out and then use the Surprise Me feature. Loved it. Pick a subject, a time frame, and it would randomly put a playlist together that was around the time you picked. Latest update does t have it. 😢😢

  • Bring back Random/ Surprise me

    by Gina Nickkle

    Please bring back the surprise me/ random video feature. The app itself is good. Sometimes it doesn’t let videos download.

  • Where?

    by fjvdklxat

    Where’s the surprise me button?

  • Get smarter

    by LotsaApps

    Instead of wasting your free time watching teens faceplant on skateboards or russian motorists attacking each other with baseball bats over lane changing skills watch something here that might actually make you smarter.

  • The most motivating App of all time

    by H.Hasani

    Wathcing TED talks motivate me to take a step further. I like to watch people who know what they want to do and how to do it. Thanks to TED app, now I can watch those people everywhere I go.

  • Need Apple Watch app and complication

    by Tecsi

    Need Apple Watch app and complication

  • I enjoy app

    by lauren_j72

    Ted talks are quite interesting and there is a large variety of them to watch. I commonly start videos only to find that I have seen them before and I wish there was some way to state that it was watched and just a date saying when

  • Awesome!

    by Yoshi's Wifey

    I love this app! It's great when you have a little down time or when you're in the car. My favorite feature is the "surprise me" option. Because of it, I've listened to a ton of talks that I normally wouldn't have clicked on and learned more than would've otherwise.

  • Notification sound

    by Whimzical_Daisy

    The app is great. Its easy, simple, and sweet. Hands down The the notification sound for his app has to be my absolute favorite thing about the the app. I wish there was an option of setting it as the default sound for all my notifications on my device.

  • Wonderfull app.

    by malshark

    I see this application is the most important one for connecting people stories to others.

  • Essential learning app

    by darmok

    Second only to podcasts as a learning resource

  • I like it, but

    by RadarGeorge

    I can’t make the video landscape when I flip my iPhone X, which makes them difficult to enjoy!

  • Feature Request

    by SurrealSoup

    1. Mark talks that have already been seen. (Seen=90% Watched) 2. Add the ability to tag and star talks personally. (And filtering search results using them.) This helps immensely in rewatching talks, NOT watching some talks, and recommending talks to friends.

  • Good 👌🏻

    by MouhanadSh

    ...

  • Love it!

    by Jankery

    TED is an awesome place to gain insight on the world around us! The development and social movements going on right under our nose become evident when I am exposed to TED. Thank you for all that you do, keeping it free of charge, just to make our society better.

  • Speed up playback?

    by Carson0304

    Hi! I love TED talks, but love to listen to then at 2x-3x speed. Could you include that functionality in your app? Cheers!

  • Great service

    by Alex83Lopez

    Solid performance.

  • Brilliant!

    by Kingpeyman

    Everything is beautifully designed in this app, and the content is terrific. However, there is this one thing that’s bothering me which is the lack of some of the TEDx talks. There are numerous great TEDx talks spreading wonderful ideas, and it would be amazing if you included more TEDx talks or even created a section for them in the app. Thank you 🙏🏼

  • Intermittent user

    by jeffreyscottbrock

    I really enjoy this app. I wish I was in a position where I could utilize it more. Easy to navigate through.

  • Well designed

    by Abdo18

    This app is well designed, recommend it Use it enjoy it 🌹

  • Awesome

    by Ger1122

    Great app!!

  • Transcript!!

    by rafaelsersun

    Great app! But:: The only thing missing is the option to read the transcript of any video. Currently the only option is to open the link in a browser..

  • Like it BUT.....

    by ShaeStanley

    I actually love watching TED talks but I have trouble adding them to my Watchlist on my phone app. Every time I click the little plus button I see a check mark indicating the video was added but when I go to my list it’s never there. I go back to the video and see the plus sign again as though it was never added. Please fix this so that I can give this app 5 stars.

  • Great app, but downloads don’t play!

    by danivelezg

    I love this app because of the variety of videos on it and the surprise me feature which always brings me interesting videos I haven’t watched before. It also has a clean user interface and well developed search engine. However, whenever I play my downloaded videos offline, I am able to play one but the next one does not play because of a playback error. Sometimes it plays once I restart my iPad, but most of the time it still does not work. Please fix this!

  • listening skill

    by Siavash Alimohammadi

    This is very good application, I try learning English and German languages for listening skill.

  • Hot project manager

    by josephdobson

    The project manager for this app is totes hot.

  • Love TED, want to love the app

    by Olaf, like the snowman

    I love TED with a passion, it has helped me change so much in my life for the better. The app however does need some changes but the two are mutually exclusive as far as I’m concerned. I watch TED the most when I’m away from home and lately (I’ve downloaded the latest update) I’ve not been able to watch or listen to any of the talks. Please fix the app, TED is so inspirational! I only gave 4 stars because of how the app is behaving lately.

  • Search Feature is Lacking

    by FlyGirlAZ

    Love TED but it would be nice to search a topic by Speaker’s name (first or last or either). Also it’s strange that I can’t set great results by searching by topic. I can get better results searching YouTube for “Law of Attraction, TED talks” (for instance) than I can directly on the TED app.

  • Great App

    by OMA68106

    Great app and even better content. Thank you.

  • Love Watching TedTalks

    by Blongnecker

    Great app

  • Must have

    by sabadila1

    This app is a must have if you like to learn! I love the new discover tab, where I’m able to seamlessly look through topics.

  • Thanks a lot

    by Mariommmmmm

    Marvelous

  • Awesome for video watchers or Audiobook listeners!

    by BritttSun

    I love the talks, very little issues with buffering or what have you when connected to WiFi! Love the discovery area for relative talks! Just AWESOME!!!

  • A necessity!

    by camilahaha

    This app needs to be downloaded more often. More people need to be aware of what goes on in the world and this app genuinely helps people improve their sense of compassion and understanding! I love it so much!

  • Wonderful app

    by Juansteen4450120163810

    Easy to navigate, fascinating talks, really no major complaints.

  • 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!

  • I’ll find myself bing watching

    by Shirley123456789

    I can download, take talks with me offline. I have iPhone 7.

  • Overall great app

    by Tasseled

    Great content, great app EXCEPT that talks are not actually saved to My Talks when that option is selected. There are some talks saved from before I created an account but now I can’t add anymore.

  • Great app but the video doesn't play, only the sound comes!!!!

    by Haaaaleeeey;)

    I love this app so much but there's a problem with playing the videos. The video stops after a few seconds and only the audio plays. I wonder why!!!
