iOS App Review: Ted

Inspiring App

The Ted Talks app contains over 1000 videos or “Talks”  from Ted Talks Conferences hosted around the world.  Users can browse the video selection through various filters including by topic, speaker, language, and more.

Each video has a short overview of the topic for quick consumption.  The user can bookmark or download the Talk if they don’t have time to watch it at that moment.  In addition to videos, this app offers the TedTalks NPR podcast as well as a limited selection of audio-only talks.

 

Pros
Can filter the Talk based on amount of time you have to listen
Able to download videos to watch offline
Share videos with friends
Great user interface

Cons
Drains Phone

 

AG Bottom Line
Battery drain and overall length of the Talks are the biggest drawbacks of the app. Overall though, Ted Talk is great.  There is so much content to discover and the app makes it easy and painless to filter the Talks.

Allowing the user to filter by Talk lengtht is probably its best feature.  If you have 5 minutes or 50 minutes, there is always an interesting Talk to explore.

 

Well done app and we definitely recommend to Ted Talk fans and those looking to download smart content .
