Reviews From google play store

NO DARK MODE/THEME I'm really thankful to people at TED for making all these videos available for free. Watching these videos is such a life changing experience. But the app has a few bugs that ruins the experience, like audio keeps playing ever after exiting the video, sometime the app don't even load the video, and not to speak of lagging issues. Plus the most important part is that IT LACKS DARK MODE OR DARK THEME. I mean c'mon guys how much time would it take to just introduce a Dark Mode?

I love the talks, but I wish there was a way to see what videos I've watched besides looking at the history. If there was a way to look at the video and it shows or marked it as watched, I'd have a much better experience.

I like watching ted using this app. But sometime i face some bug. The play button cant play the video. Sometime it playing but only the audio without video, the video is blank. Please fix this. Thanks :)

The app is great, the only problem I 've been experiencing is that it doesn't matter how many time I delete a video from my list it keep appearing everytime I open the app.

The only thing that I'm not able to get benefit out of this app is that the audio downloading function doesn't really work else the app is good

Great app, but the duration of "forward" and "backward" are too long (15 seconds). Could we have an option for it?

I was stoked to see that I was offered a wider variety of topics than youtube presents.That being said, there are some issues with your app, that I find really unsatisfying:1.When you turn a talk onto full screen, I am unable to pause or rewind or to take it back off of full screen. 2. My screen blacks out, but the speaking will continue. Sometimes it just goes black.3.This morning, a talk came on my phone by surprise. I had to shut my phone off to make it stop. I 💖tedtalks. Please fix.

TED talks are awesome! But this app does not do them justice. All the things people are saying in the 2-star reviews and lower about the technical issues are true. Additionally it also can't properly sort my downloads and my history. The history can't be sorted at all, but the usual sorting would normaly be something of latest viewing on top, or bottom. None of that with this app! It's alphabetized! Really unhelpful! :) Now my downloads. One of the sorting possibilities is 'date added'. But whatever this does, it doesn't add my latest downloads on top (or bottom). And if I click one and go back, the sorting just rearranges itself! If you select 'by type' then all it does is sort it alphabetically and puts the type 'Talks' on top. There are no other types that I can see. So this is just the same as sorting by 'title' except that it has the word 'Talks' above them. Now the thing is why I gave a 2 star: this app has been around for ages! It also has received multiple updates. When that happens, I'm always afraid that I suddenly lose my download list (have 100+ downloads so that sucks). Or maybe that it gets cut in half somehow (one day started the app, 43 were left. Couple days later: all were back...). I still use this app almost every day (I walk 20 flights of stairs and watch a (part of) talk then). But man does it suck. Also, it appears to need internet a lot, even while I've downloaded the talks. It can't seem to load them when my connection is down (which when I walk into the staircase happens a lot). Also: I've got the setting on download on Full HD --> but a lot of talks are still low resolution. They do exist in full HD though, I've checked it on the desktop browser. All these are kinks that should have worked out ages ago, shame on you TED!

Content 5 star, app not so much. Biggest issue I have is App doesn't allow playing of a single talk, automatically plays next talk in list. If not stopped manually , kills battery and eats data. When I used Apple, it would only play selected talk. They've gotten rid of a great feature that allowed you to pick how long you wanted to listen for and would select talks on subject selected and amount of time you had.

Love TED first of all! Sharing talks which inspire you are important but the app doesn't seem to work when trying to do so via WhatsApp

Lectures are short and free , it's awesome with everything in hand like the quality,speed, subtitles etc

This is the best platform to listen to motivational speech and learn.. excellent app. A daily use

Very good app and should upload more videos regarding universe and time and space. Amazing experience.

If I am going to be honest, it's very helpful and everyone needs to listen English conversations and speechs to learn English rapidly. I suggest you all not to doubt. Install it and enjoy learning English

When used on smart TV box with mouse connected, app has some issues. UI doesn't support landscape format good. Big problem in video clip navigation: As soon as video starts, cursor disappeares, so it's quite difficult to pouse, or rewind video even though video navigation is still visible at the bottom of the screen.

It is very nice app to improve speaking and listening. Yall have to try if ya are willing to learn english

Bugged 1: Even after exiting the video the audio still keeps playing and even after you close the app. 2. The pause or play button won't work in most cases. Overall its a good idea but the app isnt good.

Somehow, I can't put the shortcut for the app on my homepage, so every time I want to watch a Ted talk, I have to go to my settings, find the app section, then scroll down to Ted, then I can watch. Kind of a pain.

The app works fine, but it's unbelievable that after every finished video, the app starts to autoplay the next, hence 3 stars. At least allow users to opt out of autoplay in the settings, then it will deserve 5 stars.

Actually, I don't find anything bad to mention about the application .. This app is wonderful .. And very useful for language learners..and I hope that it is always available for free

On a Chromebook this is terrible. Hope the devs knows. search bar does not go away. Space bar does not pause. Audio always run when video closes. Other small things which is pretty annoying for the overall experience

Very good app! I use this application for 3 days,but I can safely say that the application is very easy to navigate sorry that does not work without the Internet but it is very useful recommend to all

TED has always been a brilliant institution. In this nicely designed app they have made their educational resources more accessible than ever before. In particular the ability to download talks is incredible.

Great user interface and good content.But the reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because there are some issues while streaming.The video suddenly lags after a few minutes even though I have a fast data connection.

Very nice app. If you could implement the following: - swiping between tabs - support landscape mode - allow videos to fill the entire screen like YouTube does. Thank you.

It was a great app until some problems were detected in listening to the talks. This application is currently filtered for Iranian people and this is ridiculous.

TED is a wonderful app,i always learn something new and can use that information in my life. Thank You for a great app !!!!

what's the matter with your app? it restared my phone several times after getting new updates. and still has the problem of streaming through downloaded videos. please take proper cosiderations.

The search is very bad. It doesn't suggest all the videos that match a given word or two... Also it should list the videos close whatever you are searching..

Great app to learn about a ton of different topics. I feel the only thing it is missing is an " *add to watch later* feature.

App should have play repeat and automatically play next video option too in player.

Easy to use and better than sitting through the numerous ads on YouTube, but the app crashes quite a lot.

Wonderful! My favourite app. Easy to use and full of credible content.

Just simply love watching TEDtalks. The reason why I gave 3 is because the download seems to work properly. Please fix tgis issue

It is very useful for me to improve my english level. Plus I have learnt so many things in different field.

The app has a lot of knowledge to provide you with With interesting and thoughtful explaination in the short ted signature format it shall help expand your area of thought!😊

Great UI/UX generally. I however can't be able to cast the video via Chromecast. Help, anyone?

Great app! I love Public Speeches and talks and this app is filled with everything I need!

Unfortunately I can't see my downloaded talks anymore. When I go to the downloaded talks section the app keeps stopping.

one of the best apps, user friendly. Great Content, exceptional speakers and life changing ideas.

This is a great app and it is really easy to use.Motivates me and I am learning new things everyday.Really glad about this.Thank you.

I wasted my time to download videos ..it needs internet even after download..offline mode is not working properly sometimes

I can't believe it's free. Worth downloading it will definitely change your life. I don't know who TEDs are partner with, but as they say their partners help them to keep this app free. I wanna heartly thanks the partners of TED for providing us with the opportunity.

Why does it not have all the content? I can find these TED talks on you tube but I go to search on this app and I cannot find any of them? I have tried to search by name as well and no results show up.

Videos added to My List from the Newest section disappear after restarting the app.

Really love this app. Better than iOS where cannot play offline. 💔

Any freaking video is not downloading on my phone!! I just shows downloading and eats all my data Waste app!! Very very bad :(

It's a best app for ideas to hear some one and to grow nice app

I think it is the best way to learn English and also learn useful issues.

Have found these talks so refreshing and am learning heaps about many issues

I use TED instead of reading books. It could be a really good alternative way for lazy guys :)

A TED talk app? You really can't go wrong here. This app is great if you want to watch TED talks and learn about a wide variety of subjects. Highly recommended!

Good app but impossible to download without wifi connection I didn't like

really wonderful,great place to learn new things and improve yourself .

Great content, easy to access.

Excellent app just missing cast option 👍

Fabulous app, full of wonderful insight. I was wondering whether you have a TedEd application in the pipeline as very often young people (pre-teens) that have some kind of parental controls on their smartphones cannot access YouTube and so can't watch your YouTube channel, which is fundamentally designed for them. Have you thought of a workaround for this?

casting goes anything but smoothly, I'll use the YouTube channel instead

Amazing platform to listen to great minds. Loving it^^

This app will improve your speaking skill faster than others

I cannot finished my download. It is a bug or what ? Pls fix this.

Everything was right, but lately I can not download podcast.

The app is so good Its contents gives us a new and unique imagination about world

The app is great and informative, when I had ot installed on previous gadgets,it worked fine with no bugs at all, but currently I download talks, it shows a notification that it's downloading,uses up a huge chunk of my mobile data and yet I never seem to find the downloaded talk. I find this quit inconvinient

Glitchy. Stops working all the time

Great app but annoying flaws! 1. Talks can't be shared on WhatsApp. (android version) 2. When I open the app, next it doesn't automatically refresh. I have to manually do it. Every single day. 3. Comment section is completely absent. For you comment or views comments you gotta go to the website. This is really frustating. But as I said. This app a potential to be great. Hopefully developers will consider these points.

Unlike iOS port, there is no way to select interests (and dark mode too). The result is, you have to put up with videos you are not interested in at all (still seeing those on your screen), making finding those you are really interested in quite difficult. Also background playback is on by default, not good for your data pack. Limiting cellular data is disabled by default too. Such settings should be set after user intervention only. Unless TED gets paid for setting them that way by default.

While the contents are superb, the application isn't. Try to share in whatsapp, it just gets back to the screen where you started. Is it not a set back to a great content's caption "Ideas worth spreading".

Please consider adding built-in VR Player for Ted videos🙏

The podcasts are my favorite. WorkLife and Sincerely X are masterpieces that I am grateful to have had access to, and I sincerely wish there were more episodes to listen to! The only hitch is that sometimes the very end of the recordings are cut off :( it's just the final few seconds, but it leaves me curious! And I will continue to listen.

The best ever to perfect English skills. I'm really glad about having downloaded this app.

Well designed app. . For the people who like Ted talk!

Am i in beta version, does it have bugs, is there an issue with streaming over cellular, is there a Ted talk on all this? The app seems to have major issue while broadcasting. It does not stream properly, sudden lag in the video breaking the audio-video synergy. Please update, debug and fix it. I watch a talk every morning and i dont want this to be an annoying factor everyday.

Could have given five stars but downloads don't happen and they move as queued moreover sharing results in an error such flaws are to be rectified for they are not expected from such a great platform.

The experience is great and fantastic. But can you add a comment section for each video?

Love the app but it would be so much easier to use if there was a suggested tab or a favourite topics tab where you could see talks from topics you've favourited. I'm going to be honest, I'm a humanities and arts person myself so I don't really care for a talk about quantum mechanics or something.

It allows you download talks instead of streaming so you don't have to rack up a huge mobile data bill. No bugs I've come across so far

Everything is good. Except I can't share the talks. Seems like a bug. Was working with my iPhone. But not with Samsung

It's an amazing app. But whenever app goes to background it forgets what video I was watching and start from the home page when comes to foreground. This is irritating. I have missed many videos in between because of this. Else it's a good app.

This app might just have saved my life; my sanity for sure.

It clears hearing sense and motivtive app love it❤

Great app, but the sharing feature has too much metadata to properly get the full link shared/copied. The metadata is already attached to the URL; just give us that and we're completely satisfied in the resulting share activity.

Really good app...but why there is no search for finding either a topic or specific speaker...there are speakers name and topics ordered by alphabet but no search

Galaxy Note 9 . Phone is uodated. Ted app updated. Cannot use share feature to share a ted talk with whatsapp from the ted application. An error mesaage pops up each time saying that sharing failed

Very good app for upgrade current global issues and to build english vocabulary as this app have language subtitles facility.

amazing content. pretty annoyed by space usage though: 1gb of data taken, which cannot be removed with cache clearing since this 1gb is NOT part of cache. have emailed support couple of weeks ago, with no success. Can I please talk to the support team?

One of the best ways to improve listening skill and knowledges.

I have 50+ downloaded talks. When I download a new talk, I expect it to be at the top of the downloads page when I sort by date added, but it's not!

Glorious place to feed your curiosity monster with information from some great minds. And the podcasts are just great!! And then you can save all that stuff for offline viewing. AND IT'S ALL FREE

Crucial issues to be fixed like when I download any content to use offline and nothing is playable.

I open this app everyday just to listen ted talks. The app has a very friendly interface too

It was more than expected. The talks are most of the time time well spent. However, be careful to choose the ones with most impact, because not everything is gold.

Your app destroyed 1GB of my cellular data while I was driving before I realised it was the culprit. Please ask the question about streaming over cellular if you're going to let the app stream in the background by default!

I happened abound utub, and so I seen that it was a channel that was in my library and started getting notifications for this channel along with a couple others that said was sent because of time of day of where I was at. 🤔 but found that a lot of the stuff I liked.

One of the best app for practicing new language 👍👏👍👍

I really need dark mode... please, I believe that dark mode is way better than light mode in TED.

Sorry to do this, It's a great app and you do best efforts, but I want to take your attention to add transcript to the app like in the website, please fix that it's so important, thanks in advance.

I am really going to like this app I think. I just installed it. Lets see. Why is it rated E10+? It has inspiring videos for everyone to learn from. Come on GPS=google play store. That's all I wanted to say. I know this is not really a review.

Great app however if the app is not the main one open, the player keeps stopping and starting by itself which makes listening to it very difficult and unpleasant

I think nothing could ever happen best then this app in my life , this can help anyone grow far more then anybody could have ever thought ❤
