  • why not support split view???
    by 靜謐風吟 on May 21, 2022 at 3:45 am

    I want to make note!!! Pls update split view support

  • Refuses to download
    by zesty exuberance on May 19, 2022 at 3:24 am

    Tried to download some videos to watch offline, but nothing will download so this app is useless to me. And there’s a response to a review that’s over a month old acknowledging the download issue is a known bug. Do you have any intention of fixing such a major flaw in functionality?

  • Crashes
    by 1Professional on May 18, 2022 at 11:46 pm

    I am a new user of this App, personally love TED talks and always watched from YouTube. Not sure why, but decided to download this App to find talks from a catalog vs randomly searching. So far a couple of things I noticed around the user experience: like some others, the search capability needs some attention along with easy of navigation- it’s not easy to get back to where you were before watching a video. Or, maybe it’s user error?!? But most annoying for me is the App almost always crashes upon opening. I’m using the App on an iPhone 13 Pro with 256 GB of which 196 GB is available. Updated to iOS 15.4.1

  • Cannot find some videos
    by PeraltaNataly on May 16, 2022 at 1:02 pm

    I like the app but there are Ted talks that you can find on YouTube and not in the app.

  • Lors of bugs
    by runner766882919 on May 10, 2022 at 12:39 am

    Love Ted Talks, but this app has so many bugs. When I go fullscreen it always blacks out, and airplay always glitches out. Very frustrating

  • Neglected app
    by aikitengu on May 8, 2022 at 3:57 pm

    This app does not fully support iOS 15. The app desperately needs split-view support so we can take notes while watching a TED Talk.

  • Amazing content, less stellar app
    by Eis4Enchilada on April 24, 2022 at 4:41 am

    I love TED and have been meaning to listen to more Ted Talks, as they always make my day! So when I learned there was an app for this, as YouTube was currently unavailable on my phone, I jumped to download it! The app has nice design, with its default “dark mode” (background is black to start off, like Discord 🙂 and it’s got a section for podcasts! However, there’s a few really aggravating problems behind this facade. 1.) If you swipe anywhere to read a notification or exit out of the video to search something, the visuals of the video instantly disappear and only reappear once you restart. This is the especially annoying nowadays when phones lack home buttons, for better or worse. 2.) The search system isn’t that great. While you can find a whole slew of great videos on YouTube, it’s quite hampered online, only showing a few talks/videos, typically more recent ones. It’s quite inefficient and hardly shows a full list of any TED videos. If you search by TedEd, you may only get 20 or so videos, compared to the sheer volume on YouTube. But the videos DO exist, just under specific keywords that easily slip your mind (not very ted video directly outlines the main topic in the title) 3. Sometimes, videos just outright refuse to show. Take the video on Being Scared of Snakes or the one on the Golden Gate Bridge, for example; it just keeps loading and not going anywhere, or crashing the app. It’s random and quite quirky but annoying I hope these problems get addressed in the future as I feel it’s greatly enhance the experience of using the app for its wonderful talks! If they do, full 10/5 stars from me! (I hope a “watch later” system can be added some other time; there’s a lot of talks I’d like to watch, but having to heart them all to save them in liked or making a temporary queue doesn’t solve the problem fully, which is ironic given how into problem solving TED is!)

  • Not very useable
    by thgtithktj on April 23, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    In 2019 bugs were introduced to the TED app that make it very hard to use. The problem was reported to TED support at the time and was responded to with something to the effect of, “We will consider Voice Over (VO) access as a future enhancement.” While the TED app is updated regularly, the bugs have yet to be resolved.” The biggest problem is the lack of button labelling. It is common to encounter screens that are a mix of labeled and unlabeled buttons. I can only conclude that either TED does not test the app before updates are released or people who use VO are simply not enough of a priority to justify the problems encountered during pre-release testing.

  • Worst version YET
    by areyoukiddingdude on April 20, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Repeat FAILS

  • Website’s Better
    by scades2 on April 20, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    I’m very disappointed with this app. I downloaded it so I could search for a talk my group might find interesting for discussion. I’d started this process on the TED website, and wondered if the app might offer additional controls. The answer to that latter question is, “apparently not.” But more important to me, the app fails as a search tool compared to the website. On the latter, I was able to search by category: Click on the category; see all relevant talks. All I could do on the app was search by words that might appear in talk titles. That latter is simply not very helpful. Oh, well. Back to the website.

  • Crash
    by Fentoozla on April 17, 2022 at 1:10 am

    Crash crash crash Tough to watch anything

  • Odd interface choices
    by wyodave on April 13, 2022 at 2:03 am

    Tapping the spacebar on a keyboard attached to an iPad should start/stop video playback on any iOS app but not with this one. Meta data about the playing video is obscured by a navigation UI element on the bottom of the screen and the scroll area to see the content is hard to hit consistently. I keep seeing updates to the app but no actual indications of improvements. When I submitted feedback about these issues the response was it’s a free app and I should becoming a paying subscriber. In my feedback I stated I was a paying subscriber. Not sure what I’m paying for at this point.

  • Limited Search
    by JakeMHJ on April 11, 2022 at 4:43 am

    Search looks different from website result as the app shows only limited amount of list. I cannot find what I want which I can find on website. Poor feature.

  • app crash on iPad mini3 iOS version 12.5.5

    app crash on iPad mini3 iOS version 12.5.5。 each time i open this app,it just crash。

  • Latest version unusable
    by Cix-one on April 2, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    I’ve been enjoying the app, but the latest version hangs after a few taps. Kill the app, repeat, hangs again. Also, when did they remove the ‘download’ functionality? It makes the app unusable for my use case… Very sad to see a good app go so bad.

  • Terrible app, love the talks
    by Vman2017 on March 28, 2022 at 2:14 pm

    App has many frustrating problems

  • Latest update fixed my main problems
    by JungleSports on March 8, 2022 at 4:52 pm

    But, there are many things to improve… I’d like to see filters on my list of saved talks and liked talks such as: most recent, A-Z, most viewed, etc. Keep the updates coming 👍

  • App recently stopped working
    by TheMusicMatters on March 5, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Hi. I was surprised today to discover that the TED app no longer works. When I click across the tabs at the bottom of the screen I just get a black screen with no content. I have an iPhone 13. What a bummer because there is a video that I wanted to watch!

  • Blah
    by Jose whales 2 on March 4, 2022 at 6:07 am

    TED TAKLS is a world changing great idea conceptually and, then the developers get in the way. There have literally been thousands upon thousands of bugs posted requesting remedies for issues and yet ZERO improvements. The developer whomever he or she is assigned to answer do nothing more than placate and feign empathy but, in the end NOTHING is resolved or perfected. They know it, we know it. HELLOOOO. Look back on the past reviews and actually craft improvements ! Thank you …

  • TED app has gone downhill
    by PamelaF67 on February 28, 2022 at 4:23 pm

    The old TED app was terrific and 5-stars. This latest app revision is terrible. It no longer easily connects when talked are linked to through other platforms like Facebook. The search engine is poor as the names of clearly known speakers are not coming up as results. I dislike that the search results no longer include an image of the speaker because often that is how I know I’ve found the right talk. Please rethink the changes you’ve made to your App.

  • Useless
    by human6 on February 26, 2022 at 4:34 pm

    It just crashes immediately. Useless.

  • It’s okay
    by K. Kriebel on February 19, 2022 at 3:10 pm

    The app is okay, it’a not great at suggesting talks that I enjoy but it’s still interesting nonetheless.

  • Recent updates make app unusable
    by eanagel on February 17, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    I’ve used this app for years and it has always worked fine. now it’s broken so badly it fails to play videos in many cases. Screens freeze constantly. tapping on a Ted talk often does nothing. you are lucky enough to get a video to play, the entire app may freeze while it’s playing — including the playback controls. It’s a terrible mess and should never have been released. I see there was a new release just two days ago. It’s not any better as far as I can tell. Ted talks are a wonderful gift to the world and you have made a terrible mess of some great content.

  • Crashes when you open it
    by northcanton on February 14, 2022 at 3:39 am

    Normally I do not rate apps but I just have to For this one. I can’t open this app with out is crashing on me. I literally click the app icon it open for like 2 seconds and then kicks me out of the app.

  • Pathetic App, Great content
    by ZZ-SHAD-ZZ on February 13, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    This is one of the pathetic app, poorly developed, poorly tested resulting in bad user experience. Why would the makers of the app care when the content is so great that despite such shoddy quality, people still download and use it.

  • Search Function Under Repair
    by MegaJam67 on February 10, 2022 at 8:28 am

    I just finished watching a Ted talk by neuroscientist named Lisa Genova on the subject of Alzheimer’s. Desiring to send it to a friend, I search her name and the app returns no results. Then, I search for Alzheimer’s, spelling it correctly, and am greeted again with no results. I’m using the latest iOS update for iPhone 13. I wrote the developers and it is a k known problem they are working on. Other than that, the app, and it’s content, are rock solid. B

  • Media Audio Signals
    by Technological lovers on February 8, 2022 at 10:41 am

    Media can further consider the user's daily use feelings, software signal transmission more accurate, audio vision more refined.

  • Advertising choices
    by Lib25geo on February 7, 2022 at 4:15 pm

    I can understand the need to raise money in times when in-person conferences may be limited. I can’t understand how an ad for wheel-of-fortune* got on the Ted talks app. Until now I’ve been impressed with the courage of Ted to take on difficult subjects. You might want to take this one on; how to affordably curate your own advertising without passing it to someone with lower standards of excellence. * I have screenshots.

  • Updated Monthly
    by P. Stachio on January 15, 2022 at 2:13 am

    This used to be a solid app with regular updates. It’s now become an obsolete feature that is only updated with a monthly dump. The social media pages are updated daily; It almost feels like a push toward sites that generate better ad revenue, but it is what it is.

  • Appeal of TED

  • Won’t load to the foreground
    by TexanHills on December 24, 2021 at 12:58 am

    As of the latest update, the app will not load to the foreground of my IPad Air. Almost immediately after the app starts, it disappears into the background. Tried killing and restarting it, restarting the iPad, even uninstalling and reinstalling the app itself. Behavior remains the same, meaning the app is is unusable.

    Make it so you can view specific categories such as Ted-Ed animations or at least make so those videos show up when you search for Ted-Ed because nothing relevant pops up. How has this still not been fixed in 2021???
