QuestionableQueer's Review of TedReviewed on 7/3/18 3:10 PM
I love TED talks. I want to watch them when I fly, which is often. However, what is the point of having a download option or section if they DONT DOWNLOAD?! No matter what I do I can't get them to download. Very very frustrating. Back to iTunes Documentaries I go..... please fix this immediately TED. You're hurting your band.

Rachelskirts's Review of TedReviewed on 6/25/18 8:18 PM
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! Edit 1: Oh my gosh, account sync is a WONDERFUL addition. Edit 2: LOVE the new look. Typography and layout are great. Thanks for all the hard work!

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!
manyou07's Review of TedReviewed on 5/9/18 3:51 AM
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.
Sarcasm 8367's Review of TedReviewed on 5/7/18 3:27 AM
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.
dylanmossman1996's Review of TedReviewed on 5/7/18 1:12 PM
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!
Jess1182's Review of TedReviewed on 5/7/18 12:30 PM
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.

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

Downloading doesn't work. When you try to download a talk, it just fills up a bar and whenever you want to watch it, it's not there. Download speed is very slow and it cost you a lot of bandwidth to re-download every time.

N/A 1234's Review of TedReviewed on 4/4/18 12:49 PM
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. - 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

How do I get back and watch them, save them for later? Unheard of features in your apps and on AppleTV. What a shame. A huge value missing.

Luvabulldog8's Review of TedReviewed on 4/11/19 4:18 PM
I follow TED on fb and am able to watch wonderful talks. Sometimes I want to send them to my son who is not on fb. When I search for the talk on the app or even the same topic (today it was “How did Hitler rise to power”) which was not found in the app. So then I searched under just Hitler...and nothing! Come on! I find it impossible to believe that TED has nothing on Hitler, when I JUST WATCHED a talk on fb. What gives TED app? Super disappointed with this app.
One Woman's Review of TedReviewed on 4/11/19 4:18 PM
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.
TheBeastOfSiliconValley's Review of TedReviewed on 4/11/19 4:18 PM
I tried reporting this problem to the support page but there is no support page. Its just general ted support without any way to reach the developers. So I will report the problem here. When I select the app, it moves to the foreground for a second and then immediately moves to the background. Its is unusable in this form.
tmglkg's Review of TedReviewed on 4/11/19 4:18 PM
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.

amyblueyes's Review of TedReviewed on 4/11/19 4:18 PM
When trying to search for a topic, such as “white privilege,” the response is “sorry, we couldn’t quite find anything like that.” So, when trying other searches such as “black poverty,” only two talks show up as results. When searching these two topics alone through an internet (google) search engine on “Ted Talks”, hundreds of results reveal themselves...I would have thought that an app would provide the same number of results, if it more. Poorly designed app!

Reitveld's Review of TedReviewed on 4/10/18 2:00 PM
- needs a setting for only downloading via Wi-Fi. – need a progress bar to show what is being downloaded and what has not been downloaded. (One of Ted’s talks state-owned Porten a progress bar is. Irony that they don’t take their own advice.) - videos should be grouped by categories to make it easy to watch similar videos. For example if I want to learn about astronomy, all those videos should be grouped together, and easy to find. I’m giving the such a low rating not because the app is good but because I believe this is the only way the developer will take notice of my comments and fix the limitations I find in the app.
Genius User #7638296's Review of TedReviewed on 4/1/18 11:45 PM
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.

Dedemanli's Review of TedReviewed on 3/18/18 5:38 AM
The app was much better before- Why going BACKWARDS? -why there is no feedback for download progress? -why I cannot anymore do "play all"? -why downloads are not downloaded even though it shows? I hope you can solve these simple common problems and greatly improve TED reaching many people but not fail because in 2018 one cannot make a fully functional app to watch and download.

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.

iOS user12345's Review of TedReviewed on 12/5/17 3:32 AM
Beware! The Download feature does not work well! First, the app does NOT download the video or audio in the background on wifi so you have to make sure you keep the app open! Second (and even worse) when you click on "My Talks" then choose downloads, it will show your talk as being downloaded when in fact it isn't! (the talk has only started to download or is only partially downloaded). This means that you will consume a lot of unplanned bandwidth when you try to view the "downloaded" talk (which may cost you a lot of money) or you won't be able to access it all all if you don't have an internet connection. It's a poorly designed app. They should have a "pending download" section in "My Talks" and enable the app to download in the background when on Wifi. There should also be a progress bar when the talk is being downloaded.
AppleJoeAJ's Review of TedReviewed on 12/4/17 9:13 PM
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!

N/A 1234's Review of TedReviewed on 12/30/18 12:27 PM
This is a video player and therefore dark mode should be the default. Look at Amazon Prime, Netflix, HBO, YouTube, your own TED STAGE, etc. Everything that plays videos defaults to a dark / black background for a very good reason. It is relaxing to your eyes. Switching from a dark TED stage to an obnoxious BRIGHT WHITE background makes me stop watching TED talks on my iPad. Especially if you’re trying to watch in bed. #DarkMode

manyou07's Review of TedReviewed on 12/14/18 7:43 AM
I've been using this app for many years and the one thing that's remained constant is it's inability to do the one thing I wanted it to do. Use this app if you enjoy downloading talks to watch offline, then pulling out your phone on the airplane and seeing no talks downloaded. This has probably happened to me a dozen times now. I think it's time I bid farewell to TED talks, if not for this than because the quality of the talks has tanked over the years.

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.
ElementOrange's Review of TedReviewed on 12/14/18 7:43 AM
The download feature of the app is perhaps the most important one, and it just doesn’t work. So many times I had queued up a few videos to watch on a plane, and got burned each time as I realized the videos did not download properly. There is no indication of download progress, status, or controls to start/pause/continue, or prioritize downloads. You click download and then it’s a complete mystery. Very poor programming.

Yoshi's Wifey's Review of TedReviewed on 12/14/18 7:43 AM
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.

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..

I love the app, love TED talks, but when I try to cast it on my tv (google chromecast) from my iphone (7) it won’t even give me the possibility to do so, but then if I try the same thing with my ipad mini it’ll cast it with no problem, (on the ipad) the “cast” icon appears on the top right corner of the screen, while on the iphone it won’t even appear, please guys fix this, I really like this app, it almost hurts to give just 1 star. Thank you

Kingpeyman's Review of TedReviewed on 12/14/18 7:43 AM
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 🙏🏼

I love watching the "Inspiring", the "Jaw Dropping" and "the Courageous" but why don't they show up in my Recents? Wait, where is "My Recents" and how do I share them with others? How do I get back and watch them, save them for later? Unheard of features in your apps and on AppleTV. What a shame. A huge value missing.

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

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.

Having been waiting many months for the download function to work, this version kind of works, yet with many bugs. 1. Crashes when downloading about five or more playlists. 2. When come back, the downloading function will not be able to resume properly. 3. When you play a video, even if it’s a downloaded video, the downloading function stopped. 4. When you first started download a talk, the downloading button shows a circular progress bar. But when you come back from the middle, like crashes, or shutdown, the progress button is gone, and not responsive. 5. No indicators on the download status, I will never know which video has finished download so that I could view offline. 6. No pause, resume 7. No control for individual videos within a playlist. 8. No background downloading.
TmiDavid's Review of TedReviewed on 12/14/18 7:43 AM
I’ve noticed that some speakers that I have watched videos on YouTube giving TED talks are not to be found on the app, and the thing that they have in common is that they are not leftist thinkers, but moderate and right leaning thinkers. I’ve also found that the talks about Christianity several of them are anti Christian and anti God. I also found that no talks with Judaism as a topic cannot be found, but many talks about Islam empowering people and complaining about the hardships they face in America. I understand that people have different views, and that’s what’s great. But to have an app that features talks that are by people of the same mindset and not other one’s is a disservice to people to be exposed to all kind of ideas.
slatex's Review of TedReviewed on 12/14/18 7:43 AM
Upon attempting login within the Ted app, I’m brought to an infinite “syncing..” screen. I’ve tried force closing, rebooting, reinstalling, still every time I attempt sign in I’m stuck at the “syncing..” screen. Update: Still cannot sign in, same problem on latest version of the app- 5.1 published on 7/25/18. Using an iPhone X
be_lovely's Review of TedReviewed on 12/14/18 7:43 AM
I love TED Talks and listening to multiple a week on YouTube. So figured they must have an app and wouldn’t ya know. My major issue is with the search tool. 90% of the words I enter into the search bar reveals no results. These are words that I know for a fact there are talks on. I’m not sure if the words has to be in the title of the the talk, but most words I enter I’m sure are in the title. This makes the app useless as the only way I have to search for specific talks is a very long drawn out process that probably will not reveal accurate results either. Major fail TED talks, major fail :(

joeuser47's Review of TedReviewed on 12/14/18 7:43 AM
I’d really like a simple way to download audio from talks and queue like a podcast, to play in the background, while on my commute. Huge inventory that is hard to enjoy.
DiLee0406's Review of TedReviewed on 12/14/17 11:04 PM
Really an amazing app for so many situations: in the car, while walking, on lunch break, etc. Truly evocative, thought provoking, insightful and inspiring talks. These will speak to you, in more than one way, and you will find yourself thinking of the sincerity and grace with which these people share. The hallmark of a genuine gift from the speakers, imho.
heathrulez's Review of TedReviewed on 12/10/17 1:34 AM
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.

The TED app is by far my favorite and most used app on my phone ... this app is life changing!!!!!!
Shmuelik's Review of TedReviewed on 11/23/17 4:53 PM
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. Thank you.

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.

You have a serious bug on iPhone 6 iOS 12.1.2. All the tabs including the segment section cause the app crash on Tap
Asto21's Review of TedReviewed on 1/4/18 2:30 PM
I used to love Ted Talks. The app itself is fine and works great but it is slowly becoming a globalist tool to push liberalism down our throats. With topics on alt-right, transgender, climate change and fake news.

Playback failed. If I download the video, it cannot playback. But if I erase it, then it can be played streaming
