TEDfor iOS



An app for open minds

TED is a library of inspiration and information waiting to be accessed. With the vast amount of video recordings of presentations, you'll find topics to suit your taste.

Great ideas just a tap away

TED inspires and brings a sense of understanding to the world with its multitude of speakers and hosted conventions, all available in one app.

TED is a non-profit organization that's all about spreading innovative thoughts. It does this with its short and powerful talks that normally take no more than twenty minutes. Their content is hosted by experts often seen in magazines and movies.

When you use this application in place of other services that host their content, such as Spotify or YouTube, it’ll send you recommendations based on the subjects you enjoy. To access this feature you need to create an account and sign in to the application.

TED is hosted around the globe. You may encounter topics in a foreign language. Thankfully, the TED application has subtitles that provide a translation of the video you're watching.

If you're tired of predictable subjects, or want to learn about something you've never experienced, you can use a feature that’ll load a random TED talk from the massive library.

While this app has a download feature for those moments when you're without internet, the videos are not free from bugs. The talks you want to watch may not load or download fully.

Where can you run this program?

TED is available on iOS 11.0 and Android 5.0 and newer.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. There’s a TED channel on YouTube that uploads many video talks that are available within this application. While it'll be harder to find specific topics, it is easier to download and watch these with the app. 99U is another option that lacks the simplicity and variety that this program has.

Our take

The app provides you with all the inspiration and knowledge you need for almost any day. With the wide set of subjects to choose from, a simple interface, and a quick and easy download, it’s one of the best options for motivation and social education.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you’re looking for a program for navigating TEDtalks, this is a good choice.
